A Perfect Romantic Escape in Catalonia
Olot, a city only 115 km from Barcelona, is not only home to the most important Natural Park of the Volcanic Area of the Garrotxa; it is a gastronomic hidden treasure that few tourists are aware of.
In this small town, you will find Les Cols, a modern, high-class restaurant featuring five very unique rooms. It is the ideal place for a romantic evening where food lovers are never disappointed.
At this award-winning restaurant the traditional style of an old Catalan farmhouse meets the forefront of design where glass and steel help to create a perfect environment without distracting from the prominence of the excellent cuisine by Fina Puigdevall, a recognized Chef earning a Michelin Star.
When you pay a call to a Michelin-starred restaurant, you are sure to be amazed by the excellence and modernity of each dish. In this case, what is exciting is the traditional flavor of each of their dishes, as these include local ingredients, usually from small suppliers, to ensure the freshness and quality of their products.
The wonderful selection of oils, artisan cheeses and jams will leave you impressed; each flavor is amazing! After an incredible tasting menu, you can take coffee in the garden while observing the magnificent facade of the house.
Also noteworthy is the selection of cavas (Catalan champagnes), wines and spirits. Among these, I would highlight the Raventos i Blanc Cava de nit Rose or the fantastic sweet liquors such as vi de gel or ratafía.
The best way to end a dinner at Les Cols is by staying at one of the pavilions, which have received the FAD Architecture award. These minimalist rooms are designed to allow you to take pleasure in nature as they are fully glazed rooms where you can enjoy starry nights, a volcanic landscape and spectacular sunrises.
