Mas Sorrer Menjazz Restaurant in Gualta, Costa Brava

Posted by
|

In the Catalan language menjar means ¨to eat¨. Combine this with the word Jazz, and you have the perfect word to describe this restaurant– great food, with a jazz soul. Mass Sorrer Menjazz combines flavors, textures, and sensory impressions in new ways, allowing the guest to enjoy their evening in unexpected ways.

Location

Mas Sorrer Menjazz is located in the Baix Emporda region of Catalunya, Spain, just outside the medieval town of Torroella, across the street from Gualta Pitch and Putt. Located behind a large hedge, it might be difficult to find at first, but it´s worth the effort.

Ambience and Service

The restaurant is located in an old stone farmhouse with seating both indoors and out. It is adjacent to a large area which in summer hosts an outdoor bar with dancing, live jazz performances, and even a film festival in late July. The service is knowledgeable and respectful, yet casual and welcoming.

Food and Drink

The menu features an eclectic mix of  meat, fish, and egg dishes, all of which can be combined with a variety of side orders. I had a delicious salad of spinach leaves, sunflower seeds and sheep cheese from Caceres, followed by spicy fried potatos (patatas bravas), a scallop on a slice of bacon with a  slice of pepper (a delicious mixture of flavors and textures!), and a main course of cubes of Angus beef fillet, mouthwateringly tender and prepared exactly to my order. For dessert, I ordered a plate of Payoyo cheese (from a rare breed of Payoyo goats) and quince gelatin (membrillo), a subtle variation on a favorite Catalan dish that surprised me with its unique flavor. To accompany this, the sommelier Carles recommended two local wines from the Emporda region– a Marti Fabra, and a Cartesius, from the Celler Arché Pages, which combined garnatxa, merlot, and cabernet sauvignon varieties. Delicious wines to accompany a delightful meal.

Nearby activities

Located near the beach, Mas Sorrer Menjazz is also convenient to several golf courses, paintball, picturesque medieval villages, and the 13th century castle of Torroella de Montgri. It´s also just a short drive to the Dalí museum in Figueres and the Greek and Roman ruins in Empuriabrava.

Price range

Dinner with salad, a main course, a side dish, and dessert, but without wine will run between €30-€40. If you choose the 0.5 Kg Angus steak or the 1 Kg Hereford steak the price will be higher.
