Expert review of Cal Ros

One of the best places in Girona’s old town for traditional Catalan cuisine.

Expect great Catalan cooking with updated versions of traditional dishes in a 12th-century building with bare stone walls and a high beamed ceiling.

Food and drink: 

I’ve always loved the way Catalan cooking mixes the salty and sweet and Henry, my other half, swore the baby pork with aubergine and peach was exceptional. I went for the sole fillet with cava which was beautifully subtle. Portions are very generous so if you want to leave room for pudding (and they do a mean crema Catalana – the Catalan version of slightly more custardy crème brulée which is one of my favourites), I’d definitely skip the starters. Obviously if puddings aren’t your thing, go for the starters (which are very good too) instead.

Ambience: 

It's rustic but chic; an uncluttered dining room with a refreshingly mixed clientele – the kind of place where you’re just as likely to have a pair of local businessmen at the table next to you as a honeymooning couple or a tourist family.

Service: 

Staff are efficient and friendly.

Location: 

It's in a cloistered passageway moments from the River Onyar and the heart of the old town.

Price advice: 

Main courses between 13-25 euros.
