“Excellent restaurant”

Restaurant la Calendula
Ranked #1 of 7 Restaurants in Regencos
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: US$ 49 - US$ 61
Description: The restaurant la Calendula, attached to the hotel Del Teatre, is located in the medieval village of Regencós, in the heart of the Costa Brava and of the Empordá region, in the midst of nature, between sea and mountain. Its chef Iolanda Bustos has just began this new venture, after running during six years a successful restaurant of the same name in Girona. Together with her staff, she offers a distinctive and creative cuisine, which uses the best local products and particularly a great variety of wild herbs, roots and flowers, which she gathers daily, in order to create a landscape in every dish. Born in the Empordá, Iolanda blends traditional recipes with an avant-garde concern for nature and the environment, making use of the wealth of local raw materials and exalting their natural flavours. The King Bacchus wine bar and the restaurant's cave offer a wide selection of the best local wines. The interior decoration was designed by the Tres Trastos Studio, who created a comfortable and relaxed, yet elegant atmosphere inside. But in nice weather, the terrace allows one to enjoy a meal surrounded by plants and flowers, listening to the numerous birds that come every spring to Regencós to nest. The restaurant la Calendula is open every day for lunch and dinner from Easter to October and during week-ends and feast days in November and December.

Biodinamic food, high quality, attention to details, great experience. Infused food with flowers, collected by them. Traditional Catalan cuisine in this magic and very peaceful town surrounded by nature. And the price? You eat lile in a Michelin, for less than half the price. Most expensive dish around 30€. Completely worth it

My husband and I have just returned from
an evening meal at Calendula. We both agree it was the best meal we have had during our month in Spain. The menu was exquisite, the setting idyllic in the medieval town of Rejencos and the food delicious. The presentation was a work of art and the portion size generous. The evening was topped off by our gorgeous waitress Paula. We have 3 evenings left of our holiday in the area and are tempted to return to this restaurant for each of our evening meals it was that good! Highly recommended!

We were on vacation, staying at Mas Mauri, and our daughter made reservations for 14 of us including 6 grandchildren. When I walked in my immediate thought was this not" kid friendly". The staff was very gracious, helpful with the children's selection and oh my, the adults had a wonderful time. The food was beautifully prepared and presented as a piece of art. Don't miss the desserts!
