The Begur Experience

Begur Costa Brava what to do and where to go.


The Food Tent

Mirador. Next to Gerona Airport

If you are arriving late and want a meal before progressing, this is a surprisingly good restaurant with reasonable inexpensive food down a dusty track next to the entrance to the airport. It’s also quite good if you’ve arrived at the airport too early on your return and just fancy a drink or coffee.

Hostal Sa Tuna
Platja Sa Tuna

It took us some time to get round to visiting this lovely restaurant where you can enjoy delicious food in a beautiful setting right by the beach. If going at night don’t be put off by the long dark windy road down from Begur. It’s worth the journey. Towards the top end of restaurant prices for the area but worth it.
Tel: (972) 62 21 98 or 972 62 41 82

Restaurant Can Bach. Sant Feliu de Boada.

Not to be confused with Can Bech at Fontanilles. 1 mile up the road towards Peratallada turn left down a long cart track. Very traditional farmhouse/barn restaurant. Good value. In the day time visit the Vins Can Bach next door. Take a bottle to fill up with brandy from the barrel, and sample some of the liqueurs!

Tel: (972) 19 60 80

La Pizzetta, Begur.

Don’t be put off by the long flight of stairs down to this very pleasant pizzeria. Close to the village square and church. Conservatory style restaurant where you would have to book at the height of the season. They do a great french onion soup.
Tel: (972) 62 38 84

Un Poc de Tot

Romantic setting in a garden courtyard with patio heaters and individual table lamps. Middle range prices. Good for grilled food. A few freebies and sharing starters adds a nice touch.

You can also eat inside but outside is more attractive

Tel; (972) 623 505

Can Sago, Palau Sator.

Picturesque setting where you can dine inside or outside. Traditional building and traditional Catalan food. Yet again prices that are reasonable making for a good value meal

Castell d’Emporda, La Bisball

Worth finding. Great food, great service, great wines in a splendid setting. You will probably need to book. Expensive but worth it.

La Paissa D’En Cardina,Pizzeria, Peratallada.

A bit different from the other restaurants in Peratallada. It has a full traditional menu as well as being a Pizzeria. Good if the adults want a 3 course meal and the kids want a pizza.

Fonda Caner. Begur.

More contemporary decor and stylish. Rather different to the traditional wine cellar / farmhouse type of dining room in many restaurants of the area.

Good food and a reasonably priced menu.

Restaurant Rostei. Begur .

Specialising in seafood this restaurant offers something a littel different. Portions on the small size and not cheap but makes a change from some of the more meat orintated establishments. Non fish dishes also served

Tel 972 62 27 04

Can Bech, Fontanilles.

Turn left from the road to Toroella just before the petrol station. Worth finding – it is a bit different but the food can be rather rich. Sophisticated menu & in a charming environment. Slightly higher prices than some of the local restaurants but still reasonable. (Do not confuse with Can Bach at Sant Feliu.)
Tel: (972) 75 93 17

On the promeade at Tamariu. Cheap and cheerful with good wholesome food. Great for sardines and toasted tomato bread. Ideal for a light late lunch after a morning on the beach. Similar to Es Dofi

El Pati, Peratallada.

There can’t be many more delightful settings for dining outside than this one. A garden terrace with lemon and orange trees is the setting for good food under the stars. Slightly higher priced than many. Found just on the entrance to Peratallada if you have parked in the top car park by the ‘moat’
