Food Scene
This spot is great for Spanish-Galician tapas. Little-known to the rest of the city, the lady who runs it makes the best "Tortilla española" in town. You'll also find "pulpo a la gallega", "lacón", and a few other great "tapas" at a fraction of what it would cost in the center of Girona. Cash-only last time I went there.

This place has the best "patatas bravas" in town, partly thanks to their sauce's secret recipe. They also have a very big menu with very affordable prices and they have probably the quickest service in town. Also, it is located in one of our city landmark spots, next to our lioness. If you go there, make sure to kiss the lioness's butt since the legend says it brings good luck ;) You'll find other König restaurants in strategic parts of town and they all have the same, good menu. Enjoy!

Only open for lunch hours (11-15h), this local take away rostisserie place has a bunch of tasty and cheap dishes. If you get a roasted chicken or something else, don't forget to also try some "patates d'Olot", a local dish made of ground meat stuffed within two potato slices. Yummy!

Drinks & Nightlife
You will have to pay 8€ for a gintonic but this "bar" is also somewhat of an early nightclub where you can drink and dance to top 40's music, inside or outside in the big terrace. Great to get to know some locals and other tourists from 11 to 2 before taking the party elsewhere.
