Ca l’Enric began life in 1882 as an inn for travellers and a small shop for supplying farmers in the area. In 1965, with the arrival of Desideri’s wife Dolors, the “platillos” appeared, followed shortly afterwards by the casseroles and the weekend grill. The old inn had by this time become a fully-fledged restaurant, which is where the story of Ca l’Enric begins. Currently Desideri and Dolors’s children continue to evolve this traditional cuisine, discovering the essence of the area’s flavours.
THEN AND NOW
An inn dating back to 1882, whose interior design
is contemporary, cosy and quiet; the ideal setting for sampling
a contemporary interpretation of the cuisine of yore.
A RUGGED TERRAIN
La Vall de Bianya is a rugged, cold isolated and sparsely-populated
region, and this isolation has contributed to the preservation of this
area of natural interest with its great biological wealth.
A HOUSE WITH A HISTORY
Stepping into Ca l’Enric, we enter via the old grocery shop, which
also became a barbershop where Desideri would take advantage
