Gastronomic getaway with Michelin guide restaurants in Banyoles (Girona)
A gastronomic getaway through the restaurants of Banyoles and Pla de l'Estany (Girona) with mention in the Michelin guide
Although the holiday house La Cabanya has a fully equipped kitchen to prepare your meals, you can taste different tasting menus in three restaurants in the Pla de l'Estany region with opinions in the Michelin guide.
1. Can Xapes Restaurant (Cornellà del Terri - Pla de l'Estany)
Opinion of the Michelin Guide: This place is much more than a restaurant, since behind it there is history (it began as a cinema in 1949) and there is "AD'Iniciatives Socials", a non-profit organization that seeks job options for young people with limited resources or limited training. Today, as a restaurant-school, there is a nod to the past, maintaining at the entrance the original bar of the old Cine Rosa, in Art Deco style, and presenting charming rooms where they offer contemporary Catalan cuisine, based on three menus ( Migdia "La Barra", Degustació and De Cine) and, where possible, with local products.
Tel. (+34) 636 503 734 - Mossèn Jacint Verdaguer, 2. 17844 Cornellà del Terri.
9 minutes by car from La Cabanya
2. Restaurant Can Boix (Vilamarí - Pla de l'Estany)
Michelin Guide Opinion: Fancy genuine Catalan cuisine? In this cozy family restaurant, at the foot of the road and with stone walls, they offer that authenticity that you seek so much, because the best thing about rural businesses is that they tend to flee from the superfluous to grow from honesty. Here the Boix brothers, Jordi and Albert, are firmly committed to traditional sea and mountain stews, meats grilled with natural wood and, above all, the preparation of some really exquisite rice, a dish that is never missing from their menus. They work with seasonal produce from the neighborhood gardens!
Tel. (+34) 972 56 10 05 - Road from Banyoles to l'Escala. 17468 Vilamarí.
15 minutes by car from La Cabanya
3. Restaurant Sa Poma (Orfes - Pla de l'Estany)
Michelin Guide Opinion: Charming, in the middle of the countryside and with a very careful rustic atmosphere. They offer contemporary Catalan cuisine, with Mallorcan touches, which… uses products from their own garden!
Tel. (+34) 972 19 31 37 - Veïnat de la Palma. 17468 Orfes
20 minutes by car from La Cabanya
