광주에 워낙 분위기 괜찮은 카페가 많이 생겨서 한군데씩 가보는데, 여긴정말 숲속에있어 다른 곳과 또다른 느낌이 좋았습니다. 뒷편에 작은 언덕같은게 있고 카페 주변 한번 둘러보기도 괜찮습니다.

CY ( 2013.12.1 )
There was restaurant beside river with good scene. Gangmaeul means "River Village" and Daramjwi means " Squirrel". This restaurrant was famous for acorn foods, example acorn jello, acorn noodles, rice with acorn, etc. In meal time, too many people visited there, so there was very crowded and waited too many times. Except waiting time, there was a very good restaurant with healthy food.

타지에서 손님이 온다면 여기로 데리고 가는 편이다. 육전이 정말 맛있다. 별다른 특별한 재료가 들어가 있는것도 없다. 그냥 밀가루?에 계란 묻히고 그냥 굽는데 정말 맛있다. 직원들이 직접 다 조리해줘서 좋고 주문하는 매생이 떡국이며 반찬도 정말 맛있고 깨끗하다.

I was in Gwangju in February 2015, and did a bit of hunting down in order to find this famous and historic noodle house. Two years later, I still think about our lunch there rather frequently. The restaurant itself is modest and welcoming, and it feels like a truly Korean experience. The noodles are delicious, with focus clearly on emphasizing the quality of ingredients and traditional recipes. Dishes are affordable, filling, and memorable.

메밀막국수가 맛있다는 말을 듣고 들렀는데 과연 평일인데도 차들이 많이 서 있더군요. 메밀막국수, 메밀적, 메밀만두, 메밀전병을 맛보았어요. 메밀막국수는 양이 푸짐하게 많았어요. 메밀만두는 호박으로 속을 넣고 메밀소로 빚은 것이었고 메밀전병 속에는 깔끔하게 김치와 무나물 다진것이 들어 있었어요. 가장 훌륭한 것은 메밀적으로 메밀의 함량이 많은 듯 얇게 부쳐낸 것이 정말 일품이었어요.

La Grotta

Reviewed By Mike54BU - West Chester, Pennsylvania

Wow. What a pleasant surprise. Outstanding Italian food and a very impressive wine selection (considering we are in Gwangju). Restaurant atmosphere was absolutely spot on. Had the private room which also had a small 'cellar'. Food quality was excellent. We were a party of 10 and the fixed menu was really impressive. Also had lunch here one day as well.
Beef was small, but reasonable portion, for a 5 course meal. And it was tender and done to perfection. Fish and seafood was really nice as well. Had very nice Amarone's and Montelcino's with our meals. Wow.
Service was efficient, courteous and overall very professional. Overall, it was close to 100K KRW/pp....but well worth it! Had a very good evening at La Grotta and highly recommend this to anyone.

Had a team dinner at Goongpyong and it was a very good night. Excellent service which kept our group of 10 well fed and happy for the 2 or so hours we were there. The beef was excellent! Kimchi was really good. And overall - the atmosphere was fantastic. Eclectic front part of the resto...and in the back, private rooms for the BBQ. Looks like they also did Pork BBQ. Lots of families, groups of business and friends...all seemed welcome. And proximity to the ski resort was also very convenient.

Gluttonous Korean Beef

Reviewed By 창우 한 - Seongnam, South Korea

갈비탕 먹었습니다. 일반은 1만1천원. 왕갈비탕은 1만3천원입니다. 일반은 큰뼈로 2덩이 들어있습니다. 고기가 질기거나 흐물거리지 않고 딱 앂기 좋았습니다. 국물도 소금을 안넣어도 될정도로 간이 좋았고요. 정말 맛있게 먹었습니다. 주차장도 넓어 주차하기도 편합니다.
