We ate here on our last night. Besalu is a day trip destination and so many restaurants, including this one, were closed many of the evenings. The food was very good and was an inclusive menu. The waitress was lovely and helpful as we speak hardly any spanish. The owner makes a point of visiting all the tables to speak to customers. Friendly atmosphere with both Spanish and tourists

We visited Besalú in the beginning of March when it was difficult to find anything open for dinner. Our hotel suggested Cal Tronc, and we were very satisfied. Just walking the Medieval town at night to find the restaurant was an adventure in itself. The owner was very welcoming and we were quite happy with the food.

Fantastic place absolutely loved it when we lived in Besalu. Besalu itself is stunning and stacked with history, beautiful little churches etc. And the Cal Tronc, what can I say, what a great restaurant with great staff, especially Kimi the owner, a great chap, who became a great friend. Never a dull moment with this man. Fantastic place to go with great food and brilliant atmosphere. GAGA & LILLY x

Hi everyone.

Besalú is one of the most beautiful villages in Spain and has a lot of great restaurantes. We tried Cal Tronc and was amazed. It’s very beautiful inside and very very very tasty. The stuff is lovely! I recommend to everyone.

Thanks a lot

In winter very few places in Besalú seem to be open, and this was the first one we came across. Being December it was very quiet - we were the only diners at first. The decor is quirky, with colourful mosaic covered pillars, old movie posters and a giant cinema projector. The owner didn’t quite know what to make of us at first, but he warmed up considerably when he realised he could have a bit of a joke with us, and we were all laughing together in no time. Normally they do a Menu del día, but not the day we went. That looked to be extremely good value. Not that the à la carte option wasn’t too. While waiting for our entrées to arrive we were served some lovely anchovystuffed olives and bread with a delightful curried butter. The wine selection is fairly small, but has some excellent local wines. Portion sizes for the main courses were pretty huge - my younger son went for the whole pork knuckle, and when it came it was about the size of his head! He did manage it all though. The total bill for two and a half courses (we only had a couple of desserts) for, with drinks came to about €95. Oh, and when they heard it was my son’s birthday, his Crema Catalana came out with candles.
