Over 100 years of tradition Editors' Note

El Xato traces its history back to the 1915, when Pedro Balaguer Orts and Jerónima Cano Pére opened their first winery “Ti Pere el Tardá.” The name of the restaurant changed to Bar El Xato in 1948.

The El Xato restaurant preserves traditional recipes served in La Nucia, and recreates historic menus for its customers. It is a fine restaurant, with very competitive prices, a pleasure to visits: family friendly service, rustic charm, exquisite cuisine.
