Expert review of Hotel del Teatre
This is the restaurant for the Hotel del Teatre in the tiny, village of Regencós, just a short drive from Begur and the coast. As with the hotel, the restaurant has been converted from a 19th-century theatre but alongside the original rough stone walls. It now also has a minimalist, contemporary interior with a Modernist glass facade overlooking the hotel pool and garden. I’ve always admired the Catalans for the way they manage to sensitively update old buildings and this is no exception.
This is contemporary Catalan cooking with an emphasis on meat (although there is always also a 'catch of the day’) with dishes like steak tartare and pig’s trotters with caramelised grapes. I particularly enjoyed the duck confit with baby onions in port wine and our waiter recommended some excellent local wines.
It's stylish, cool and design-conscious but without being too po-faced.
The staff are excellent – friendly and attentive. I’ve also overheard waiting staff speaking very good English to other diners.
It's on the main village square in Regencós, about a 10-minute drive from Begur and lovely Costa Brava beaches like Llafranc, Tamariu and Calella de Palafrugell.
Main courses are 13-25 euros. Dinner for two with wine is around 100-120 euros. In March 2011, they're going to be starting a new tapas menu which will work out around 26-28 euros per person.
