GatBlau, (BlueCat in English) is a inviting restaurant, with high ceilings and nordic decoration which gives you a sense of calm when you enter the place. Run by a very pleasant catalan family, their philosophy is to offer a sustainable and healthy food, with local products, seasonal, ecologic and fair trade.
Here’s what we ate. For starters we had Porros confitats amb romesco blanc i formatge Gamoneo (Confit leek with white “romesco” sauce and Gamoneo cheese) (8€ – $9.8). I would’ve never thought that a vegetable, which is normally used for broth, would look so sophisticated and taste so delicious.
As a main dish we ordered Arròs Carneroli de l’Estany de Pals amb garotes i bolets (Carneroli rice from Estany de Pals with sea hedgehog and mushrooms) (16€ – $19.7):
And Ànec de gla a dues coccions amb carbassa i taronja (Duck at two different cooking times with pumpkin and orange) (15€ – $18.4):
For dessert we had the Coulant d’avellana amb gelat de caramel (Hazelnut lava cake with caramel ice cream) (6€ – $7.4). It’s not the typical stuffed muffin, it was a homemade thin pastry that melted in my mouth. Unfortunately, once again, forgot to take the picture as I went for it too fast!
We also tried the ecologic bread and the fresh made water, filtered three times right before being served (1.5€ – $1.8).
So our lunch for two cost us 68.20€ ($83.8):
- 1 Confit leek with white “romesco” sauce and Gamoneo cheese
- 1 Carneroli rice from Estany de Pals with sea hedgehog and mushrooms
- 1 Duck at two different cooking times with pumpkin and orange
- 1 Hazelnut lava cake with caramel ice cream
- 1 Bottle of white wine
- 1 Bottle of water and bread
- 2 Cortados
I have to say that everything was really good, very tasty, I liked the place and the service was very nice and helpful. I understand that we are having a great product, ecologic, local, but still I think it is a bit pricey.
After all, I would go back!
