The star dishes at El Romaní de Breda include Catalan classics such as piquillo peppers, rice casserole and squid stuffed with vegetables.
Even though it didn't open its doors so long ago, in 1981, El Romaní de Breda has long been a classic of the Baix Montseny and La Selva region, with a range of dishes based on Catalan cuisine but with added innovative touches. Created as a family business, it's currently the second generation (specifically Sam Torres, the son of the owners) that's in charge in the kitchen. Torres has inherited the classic Catalan recipes and, thanks to solid avant-garde training, continues to seduce clients with his combination of tradition and modernity, as well as the friendly, welcoming service on offer.
Highlights on the menu include classics such as 'pebrots del piquillo' (piquillo peppers), rice casserole and squid stuffed with vegetables. In terms of Romaní specialities, each week they create new dishes, while on the wine menu, the stars are local Montseny varieties, in particular the cellar of Serrat de Montsoriu, which also happens to be one of the most important landmarks of medieval architecture in Catalonia.
