Casa Marieta

Casa Marieta is one of Girona’s oldest and most emblematic restaurants, offering traditional Catalan specialities from its central location at Plaça de la Independència. Favourite dishes include Iberica ham, chicken croquettes, salt cod and lamb cutlets, best accompanied by a choice vintage from the wine cellar. It is highly recommended to book ahead, as it can be difficult to find a table unless you're willing to eat very early.


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.
