Girona’s ‘BEST OF’ everything

Insider's super quick guide to Girona's everything off the bike: food, entertainment, coffee, walks and more.


Visiting Girona?  The small city has so much to offer it can be overwhelming to decide where to go and what to see.  Check out our top routes here (link to top rides) but besides that, you definitely don’t want to waste your time on mediocre ice cream and waste those calories on anything sub-par.  Check out our below list of the best of the best in Girona, sourced by many who live here and would agree. 


Girona’s Best For:

Best for wine: Place del vi 7 owned by one of the world’s best sommeliers.

Best for cheese: La Simfonia: run by a local couple, their cheese board of 10 cheeses is a meal in itself. Check out their bodega as well for takeaway picnic specials

Best for Bravas: La Taverna : sit outside in the sun year round.

Best Gelato: La Bonbonera : fresh made every day, in house.  

Best Tacos: Andele Wey : homemade tortillas from this off the beaten track outpost.

Best Pinchos/ Tapas: Artusi : a longstanding old town gem.

Best for a quick takeaway: Volver Empanadas : a cyclist friendly snack.

Best steak:  El Carrito Barri Vell

Best hot chocolate: Casa Cacao: a chocolate shop and hotel owned by the Roca brothers.

Best walk: the city wall.  Built in medieval times, get a real sense of history in the town.

Best cocktail: Nykteri’s : tucked onto the side of the old town, this long standing outpost has an extensive list of international tipples.

Best live music: Sunset Jazz club: an old school vibe with great live music.

Best late night dancing: Lola cafe: live music in traditional Spanish and Catalan style.  Be prepared for a late night though, it all kicks off around midnight!
