WHERE TO EAT & DRINK
The region is also internationally recognised for its gastronomy. As you might expect, authentic Costa Brava cuisine is a combination of produce from the sea and land – some specialities include black rice with seafood and meat, chicken with king prawns, fish stew, and sea cucumbers and sea urchins for the more adventurous diners. There are a total of 19 Michelin stars awarded to 15 restaurants in the area, and the three Michelinstarred El Celler de Can
Roca in Girona was named the best restaurant in the world by the prestigious Restaurant Magazine. You can also get highquality meals at more affordable prices elsewhere, though. Wherever you are in the region you’re never far away from a seafood restaurant offering the freshest produce you can imagine cooked to order, or a quality tapas restaurant that will provide enough food to fill even the hungriest of post-round golfers for around €10 per head.
In terms of nightlife, you’ll want to stick to the larger towns like Girona or Figueres, or head into Barcelona if you’re looking for some lively entertainment and a few more drinks after dinner.
