Exceptional food in a converted farmhouse on the edge of medieval Begur.

To my mind, this is one of the best restaurants in the area. As soon as I heard owner Miguel enthuse about sourcing the produce for this restaurant, I knew I was in for some seriously good food. Fish is sourced locally (as you’d expect with the Costa Brava within a 15 minute drive), but meats are brought in from the best, specialist areas in Spain like cochinillo (suckling pig) from Segovia and steak from Avila.

Food and drink

This is top class Spanish cooking – a sophisticated, international take on traditional dishes with staples like seafood paella and fideuá as well as ‘speciality rice’ with giant lobster, the aforementioned crunchy suckling pig with potatoes and vanilla cream (I know it sounds a bit odd, but my other half said it was fabulous), and truffled fried eggs with potatoes and foie gras. I opted for the barbecued duck with candied figs and red fruit sauce last time I was here, which was just the right balance of salty and deliciously sweet.

Ambience

It's elegant and formal without being at all stuffy. The building is a converted stone farmhouse and the main dining room has original rough stone walls and a high, wooden beamed ceiling. There’s also a beautiful terrace outside and live jazz on some Friday evenings. It is part of the [node:170478].

Service

The staff are very personal and friendly. Owner Miguel will often come and chat to guests.

 

Location

It's perched on a bend off the main road out of Begur.

Price advice

Main courses cost around 14-20 euros, with barbecued duck 16 euros and suckling pig 20 euros.

Tables to book

The views to the surrounding countryside from the terrace are gorgeous so it's worth asking for one of the few tables on the terrace outside if it's a nice day or evening.
