One day he settled in an old farmhouse in a village of more than 200 years that he had bought with 18 years already with the dream of making a restaurant in it and was forming for more than 15 years, to achieve its maximum goal. 


On August 28, 2007 Reina de Port-lligat opened its doors, a restaurant with 20 seats with a unique and very personal decoration with rustic turns made of canes and river stones.


Cooking based on fresh products and local local, always looking for optimal quality. With the motto of constant innovation in its cuisine, motivated in search of traditional recipes with the personal touch of the chef.


In the middle of three natural parks, Mollet de Perelada is a small, elegant and welcoming village very representative of the interior lands of the Alt Empordà.


We are in an old town house reformed preserving all its character, Queen of Port Lligat offers an original framework that combines authenticity and Baroque. 


The spaces are intimate and cozy, with refined decorations playing with modern cuisine and the tradition of the environment, with a quiet outdoor courtyard with charm like farm courtyards.
