The La Deu restaurant is located in the Natural Park of the Volcanic Area of the Garrotxa, and dates back to 1885. At first it was a hostel which opened at weekends. Neighbours from nearby farms came there to drink a glass of new wine made from the locally grown grapes.
After 1910, meals were made and the business was open during the entire week. The women from the family ran the hostel while the men kept on with work in the fields.
In 1943 the first “Bretxa potatoes” were made, they are known today as the traditional La Deu potatoes.
In the sixties the men from the family left farmwork behind them to dedicate their efforts to full time work in the restaurant.
The restaurant has always been managed by the Reixach family. Today the fourth and fifth generations of the family are working together, producing Catalan cuisine and together with other restaurants in the county are committed members of the Volcanic Cuisine Group.
Our cuisine has developed over time and has adapted to the tastes and the demands of our clients with the introduction of new specialities.
Our culinary selection could be defined as a combination of tradition and modernity, where the famous haricot beans from Santa Pau with crumbled traditional Catalan sausage “botifarra”, the charcoal broiled chicken, the duck magret stuffed with foie gras and the medallion of monkfish stuffed with truffles and served with prawns all share the same space. This has been made possible by the constant dedication of the family members involved in the restaurant, who, generation after generation, have included new recipes and innovations to improve and extend, day after day, our selection, not to mention those dishes which have been passed down from father to son, and which provide the basis for our local cuisine.
We have various rooms with differing capacities which have been especially prepared for celebrations and business events.
