Respond to Review of Amaranta
by Joanna Dubois
Review: I have been having lunch at Amaranta on every visit to Girona for a few years now. Please note the restaurant has changed ownership a year ago. The new owner is particularly charming and although the food was already nice before, I found, on my latest visit last week, the standard was even better. OK. the choice for vegans isn't as great as for vegetarians, but the owner told me he was keen to extend the vegan range. It happened to be their first anniversary and so clients could pay however little they wanted for their meal, which I thought was a lovely gesture (but I insisted on paying the full price - which is very cheap anyway - as I want the venture to thrive). The decor is very agreeable, the place -including the toilet facilities - impeccably clean and service always friendly. Please note the menu is only in Catalan, so a small phrase book/dictionary will come in handy. I'm surprised another reviewer stated this restaurant was a 5 - 10 mins walk from the station. I'd say it's more like 3 mins. If you arrive at 1 pm, you'll probably be the only party in the restaurant; by 3 pm it is packed, so don't be put off when coming early, by seeing the resto empty: Spanish people have their meals much later than Anglo-Saxons do.
