La Riera

Catalan in Peratallada

Opening onto a flower-filled terrace, this sophisticated yet friendly eatery within a 15th-century old-town building simmers up an excellent range of rice dishes, from simple seafood paella to arròs de llamàntol (lobster rice), as well as earthy roasted meats such as entrecôte in mushroom sauce and grilled duck.

It's also an esteemed hostal, filled with comfy, simple rooms dressed with a dash of old-world charm (double including breakfast €80).
