La Cava is the best place in Sant Feliu de Guíxols to enjoy 'pintxos' (tapas served on slices of bread) and other Basque Country classics. Natàlia, head of the dining-room, and Jordi, chef and son of the owner of El Cau del Pescador (a classic seafood restaurant in Sant Feliu), met while working in the Basque Country, specifically in the Bodegón Alejandro, which belongs to the parents of Martín Berasategui, and El Munto, another classic tavern in the old town in San Sebastián. In 2013, back in the Costa Brava, they wanted to make their own interpretation of everything they'd learned, combining it with traditional Catalan cuisine. And they were lucky enough to find the ideal venue, a place in the centre that had previously been a restaurant-tavern and still had a long oak bar.
You can enjoy numerous cold and hot pintxos: 'botifarra' sausage with piperade and grilled courgette; spinach and anchovies marinated with marmalade and grated lime; artichokes with ham and 'romesco' (a Catalan sauce that includes grilled tomatoes and toasted hazelnuts and almonds); canellon of chicken and foie with mushroom sauce; Idiazábal cheese ball with foie and grape sauce - the list of recommendations is endless. In addition, there's a menu of larger dishes that changes at least twice a year, as well as a set lunch menu on Saturdays and Sundays.
