Going into Casa Marieta is like recovering part of Girona's history. Photographs of the city from the beginning of the twentieth century can still be seen inside, as can tools from the old cottages, an underground wine cellar and eve a well and an old coal bunker.
In 1892, Casa Marieta opened in Girona as a traditional place serving home-style lunches in a family atmosphere. This spirit lives on to this day, both in the cuisine served at the table and in the décor.
Just in front of the coal house, there is a particularly special private room, decorated in hard wood and glass-work in stone arches and with space for twenty people. The main dining room, also in a rustic style, is divided into five marked out areas, each with a different name (Espejo, Cantera, Roma, Cubierta and Costa) depending on their main characteristics.
The menu, featuring more than forty dishes, is a complete compilation of the traditional cookbook that has been passed down from generation to generation. It features little gem lettuces from Tudela, golden noodles, house cannelloni, black pudding with salt and pepper and potatoes, veal entrecôte, free-range chicken, fish stew, char-grilled cod or monkfish with garlic and parsley.
