La Cuina d’en Garriga

La Cuina d’en Garriga is actually about the size of a garage, so finding a seat at peak hours may be a struggle unless you book ahead. You’re pretty well off the main tourist trail here, but there is English to help navigate the small menu. We love it for a casual lunch.

Viblioteca

The name gives the game away – Viblioteca is a wine bar. But it is so much more than that. In a space not much bigger a double garage, Viblioteca seats about 30, and somehow from behind the bar the small team conjures up incredible sharing plates.

There’s no stove in the ‘kitchen’, so no grilled or fried dishes, but it doesn’t matter – smoked sardines on toast with idizibal cheese, tuna tataki and avocado salad, a brilliant deconstructed caprese salad, confit potato with jamon and a poached egg are just some of the many highlights here.

The owner is an oenophile and will help you choose wines by the glass or bottle – she has loads that aren’t on the list. The prices are reasonable and there are around 50 different cheeses to choose from to finish. Absolute gold. Bookings essential.

Incredible cheese selection at Viblioteca
