Expert review of Pa i Raim

Classy, international cuisine in a grand 19th-century townhouse in Palafrugell.

This is the kind of place I love for a family celebration or a special occasion romantic dinner. It’s formal and grand but warm and unstuffy at the same time with high ceilings, Art Nouveau fireplaces and a very relaxed, more modern conservatory. It's lovely for weekend lunches.

Food and drink: 

It serves Catalan cuisine with occasional hints of Asian fusion and the odd nod to El Bulli wizardry. I had some beautifully tenderly grilled hake with battered vegetables last time I was there, whilst my other half particularly enjoyed his suckling pig in old wine with apple compote. If you’ve got a sweet tooth, like me, don’t leave without trying the liquid chocolate soufflé with lime and ginger sorbet.

Ambience: 

It's smart but unstuffy. There are also different rooms with different atmospheres – the glass roofed conservatory feels much more informal.

Service: 

The staff are excellent - attentive without being intrusive.

Location: 

It's in the town centre in Palafrugell. The beach at Calella is only about 10 minutes away and Llafranc and Tamariu are also within easy reach.

Price advice: 

Main courses cost between 18-25 euros.
