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.
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].
The staff are very personal and friendly. Owner Miguel will often come and chat to guests.
It's perched on a bend off the main road out of Begur.
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.
