It's Better to Travel than Arrive?

Fonda Europa Restaurant, Granollers, Spain

We had dinner here on our first night in Granollers, and I must say that we were all fairly disappointed.

It's a lovely looking restaurant, right near the city centre, but the service and food let it down.

We were a group of 5 and two of our party didn't order a starter - the staff bought their mains with our starters, so they were left with empty spaces when we were eating our mains.  Not that it really mattered, because the staff came and snatched the plates away from whoever had finished, regardless of who was still eating.  It became a bit of a hotch potch of starters and mains, with plates being removed and new plates being delivered with no sort of order.

I started with the rather disgusting sounding Mashed Potatoes with Egg and Pan Drippings - but it was actually really lovely.  For main I ordered Roast Duck with Fig, which came with absolutely no figs, but a mixture of strawberries, blue berries and raspberries - the remains of the breakfast compote?  It was okay, but nothing outstanding.

None of us could be bothered with desserts and left shortly after finishing - there was no real atmosphere and the staff were very haphazard.

Honestly, go to Cala Sila right next door and you'll really enjoy yourself (as we discovered on our next night).

Duck with Invisible Figs!
