Cal Ros, located in a rustic 12th-century building in Girona's old quater, serves traditional Catalan cuisine with a modern twist. The bacallà (cod) with pistachios and olives comes highly recommended, as does the fillets de llenguado (sole) in cava.
Girona stands tall among the strong tradition of Catalonian food culture, not only as the home of El Celler De Can Roca (the second-ranked restaurant in the world in 2015), but as an overall top foodie destination. Pa amb tomàquet – tomato bread – is a common starter, while the Crema Catalana is an obvious and delicious choice for dessert. Mar i Montanya – a mix of poultry and seafood – and Calçotada are other traditional dishes that are worth trying. For celebrations, you have a go with some bubbly Cava.
