Being part of the Cabezudos Group I expected at least decent seafood. But the plate I had was a true deception. Took a Surtidos a la plancha for a light dinner. 8 gambas/shrimps of 4 varieties for 35 euro is rip-off to start with. Some were half raw, others were overcooked and all were non-fresh (frozen). To mask the dull... More

This is part of the same group as the Cabezudos restaurant (currently rated #8 in Zaragoza) and is a high quality restaurant. The menu is extensive with everything from live lobster, clams etc to steak to in-season mushrooms and other vegetation options. The wine list has some excellent wines that are very reasonably priced. A reserva wine I ordered was... More

We stayed over for the weekend in Zaragoza and enjoined the good cuisine of Tragantua, if you want to be sure having a table you have to reserve!

This restaurant is located on a small place not that easy to find if you are not from the city. We were four and shared some tapas (jamon, queso, croquetas, calamares etc). You should spend about 20eur per person to be totally full! Too bad the service is horrible and strongly impatient...

Not wanting to venture far from the hotel we tried this restaurant as it was the first we came across. It served surprisingly good fare for what was expected. The décor was dated but as the night wore on, it appeared the locals knew it was good as the patronage grew. Good serve sizes and fish cooked perfectly. Pricing was... More

I've had worse but this place is tired and probably resting on it's laurels. Flabby calamares - fresh fish but not quite cooked enough so lacking in crispy coating, disappointing bacalao - frito was promised but we got an indifferent and still too salty stew with overcooked marrow and fish and piquillos; but the worst were the croquetas - much...

One of the few places that looked decent open for lunch near the square in August. Sat outside and had a great array of fresh seafood and veg brought to the table. When the final dish arrived, 2 huge octopus tentacles, I thought there was no way I could eat it all. 10 minutes later it was gone; absolutely delicious.... More

With so much excellent seafood on offer, a lot of people pass on the croquetas. They are simply the best I've ever had, after a lifetime of eating them. Everything else is great, too. (A great place to go for the mushrooms in late fall.) Have the pulpitos, gambas, navajas, but do NOT miss the croquetas!

Bumped into this little find and loved it. Especially loved the deep fried stuffed-mussel shell (not sure about its name). Food was all made to order; you wouldn't even find microwave reheated croquette, which is very common in many places. It's a little more expensive (just a little;) - but it's also a different quality. Very kind staff.

We pulled into Zaragoza on a Sunday -- when most restaurants are closed. We were resigned to eating in a hotel restaurant when we happened on the Taberna. It was "only" 9:30 but the place was quite crowded. We grabbed a table for two and struggled with the Spanish menu. They provided a multi-lingual summary which helped quite a bit.... More
