Reviewed 11 June 2018

Looks are deceiving. Don't walk past this wonderful restaurant or you will miss a treat. We stopped for dinner and were not disappointed. The starters are very generous and you may stop there and proceed to coffee and digestivo! However, I recommend the Catalan sausages and roasted vegetables. The family on the next table were tucking into what looked like a very good spaghetti bolognese. The special treat of the evening was a taste of the blue Cabrales cheese from the Asturian region. This was like Roquefort but dare I say, more refined?

This restaurant is a little bit out of the centre of Figueres, ten minute stroll perhaps. It is run by a couple who serve traditional Catalan food, the highlight of which is the meat which is cooked on an open fire in front of you. Whatever you order you will be given delicious toasted bread with garlic and tomato - the pa amb tomatet - and often a small plate of charcuterie. Be wary if you order a plate as you get a mountain of it. The cheese plate is also plentiful and delicious. The owner has a curious habit of tasting the wine if you order by bottle! We have never eaten badly here and the only downside to it is likely to be over ordering. You can have a dessert, not a great choice, but you will get a complimentary dessert wine, which usually satisfies our need for something sweet after the savoury. There is a small but decent wine list.
