In 1990, the husband-and-wife team Francesc Xambó and Josi Salguero opened the restaurant El Trull d’en Francesc, having restored an old oil mill of the 17th century. Some stone walls of the original building were preserved, along with the floor and the millstone from the 19th century, which was placed outside next to the two plane trees. The oil press from the year 1870 was also restored and is now located in the main dining-room.
In front of the restaurant a terrace was laid out, forming a lookout point over the River Muga and the Cordó weir. Over the years, the restaurant’s kitchen and other rooms have been enlarged to offer a better service. Today, the restaurant El Trull d’en Francesc has become a point of reference for quality Empordanese cuisine, offering an exquisite treatment of local products.
The restaurant El Trull d’en Francesc prides itself on being located in a truly enviable setting, in the centre of the Alt Empordà, in a village of 125 inhabitants. Its surroundings are wonderful for strolling, cycling or just admiring their beauty.
We have a terrace that is open in summer, overlooking the River Muga with its flocks of ducks and geese, and the establishment has a totally rustic decoration, with a fireplace for the winter. The restaurant El Trull d’en Francesc offers essentially Empordanese cooking. All our products are bought fresh locally, as we are only 20 kilometres from the sea and the mountains. With a youthful, friendly staff who will be at your service from the moment you arrive until you leave, we aim to offer warm and careful attention to make your visit as pleasant as possible.
