Fodor's Expert Review El Taller
Run by four entrepreneurial friends in the small village of Taurinya (just down the road from the famous Abbaye de St-Michel de Cuxa), this hip bistro serves fine locally sourced fare in large portions, like pork tenderloin in corriollette (fairy-ring mushroom) sauce. Like the food, the setting is stylish: its sleek glass-walled building and steel-framed terrace were constructed by the village specifically to house this Bistrot de Pays (a government-subsidized network of village restaurants promoting commerce in rural areas). The smart feel of the place nestled in a picturesque village at the base of Mont Canigou makes El Taller a popular out-of-the-way gathering place for locals and travelers.
