Late-night eating: Like most Spanish cities, Girona gets lively late. Families dine out from 10pm onwards, and the bars stay open until the early hours.
Time for tapas: There are tapas bars on practically every corner. Try Boira on the Plaça de la Independència for its innovative menu.
The oldest restaurant: On the other side of the Plaça is La Casa Marieta, which serves traditional dishes including delicious monkfish.
Local favourite: In the medieval quarter, the seafood restaurant Arròs I Peix on Carrer dels Ciutadans is popular with locals. Try arroz negro, a dish of cuttlefish and rice darkened with squid ink.
The world's best: The three Michelin-starred El Celler de Can Roca on Can Sunyer has been voted the best restaurant in the world — book now for 2017.
