We stumbled on this place when we were out taking fotos. It looked like mainly locals, and it was. The croquetas were like little fluffy balls of cheesy joy. The bread, cheese and vegetable toasts (toradas?) were outstanding. Patatas Bravas were a truly fine example of their species. All that. Two wines and a beer came to about 25 euros. A good value in my book. The servers and cooks clearly are passionate about their restaurant. Will be back for sure.

This restaurant was a surprise, we found oit it has an inner terrace and that their menu consists of organic and locally grown produce, which is awesome.
Food was delicious, the service was good and on top of that, we were delighted with a live concert during dinner.
It has different tables with a slightly different ambience between them, they didn't take long to bring our plates and were very nice. The only thing I found could be improvable is the ammount of food in the dish qith eggs, potatoes and ham (exquisite, nontheless) and the fact that the hummus, delicious as it was, could have been accompanied by more than just the 4 tiny carrots it came with.

Four of us had lunch on a beautiful day. It never happened to any of us before but our waitress kindly advised us that we were ordering too much food. We were hungry so made the order anyway and she was right. With two appetizers to share and the rice of the day for two was more than enough for us. The fish was fresh. The untouched dish was late arriving but not needed so was nicely packed for us to take home. The dish fed the four of us for supper.

Very tasty dishes. Kind of warm big tapas with a lot of vegetables. Also quite cheap. I like the wine too.

I think El Forn is one of those slightly off the beaten path gems. I spent three weeks in Girona and the food was the best that I had there. It was the only place that I wanted to go back to. It is really really good the chef is an artiste. The thing is that there is only one of him and a helper. This means that the service can be a little slow. No problem: just order another bottle of wine. It is worth the wait it is considerably better than then almost anything else in Girona. Like Michelin stars good - no really.
