La Calendula has been one of my favourite Girona restaurants since I first visited a few years ago. It's a little off the beaten track and it's location and interior styling won't 'wow' you. However you make the trip for the food which is always...More

The surprise has not been the use of flowers, but that the base cooking is very good and flowers are used to bring a subtle touch of flavor and aroma that is very well fitted. We just had a couple of set lunches and paid...More

We had dinner here one night while in Girona. It is NOT in the Old Town which is too bad because most tourist will unfortunately miss out on this special place. However, it's an easy 10-15 minute walk from there and it's well worth it....More

What a dinner. A feast for the eyes and an exquisite delight for the tastebuds. I'd read about this restaurant specializing in fresh foraged herbs and edible flowers, so we decided to try it. Better yet, most of the choices on the menu were either...More

A bit of of the way but worth the trip for a menu where flowers play a key part. Very friendly staff who could not do enough for our group of 14. Unusual but good food particularly enjoyed the varied starters.

Description
The restaurant la Calendula, attached to the hotel Del Teatre, is located in the medieval village of Regencós, in the heart of the Costa Brava and of the Empordá region, in the midst of nature, between sea and mountain. Its chef Iolanda Bustos has just began this new venture, after running during six years a successful restaurant of the same name in Girona. Together with her staff, she offers a distinctive and creative cuisine, which uses the best local products and particularly a great variety of wild herbs, roots and flowers, which she gathers daily, in order to create a landscape in every dish. Born in the Empordá, Iolanda blends traditional recipes with an avant-garde concern for nature and the environment, making use of the wealth of local raw materials and exalting their natural flavours. The King Bacchus wine bar and the restaurant's cave offer a wide selection of the best local wines. The interior decoration was designed by the Tres Trastos Studio, who created a comfortable and relaxed, yet elegant atmosphere inside. But in nice weather, the terrace allows one to enjoy a meal surrounded by plants and flowers, listening to the numerous birds that come every spring to Regencós to nest. The restaurant la Calendula is open every day for lunch and dinner from Easter to October and during week-ends and feast days in November and December..
