Some of the best service I have experienced in Spain. The food was plentiful and delicious. Fresh bread with a local olive oil was a great start to the meal. The pumpkin soup with blood sausage was an unexpected and rewarding combination. The duck stuffed canelones are very good. However, the pasta shells are are more like a phyllo dow.... More

Located in Old Town, this is a restaurant worth finding. Manager Carlos is energetic and loves to see you happy. Food was wonderful and we had the best bottle of local wine we had in all of Catalonia. He didn't mind that we were early birds (8:30pm). As we are light eaters, we got an appetizer, fish course and bread... More

From greeting at the door to dessert this is a culinary experience not to be missed. A superb selection of traditional dishes, pared with outstanding regional wines, and an attention that will make you feel like family from hola. There is a reason this place is numero uno en Tarragona. Try their menu de degustación. You are welcome!

This place is highly recommended, it's in the old part of town so quite an adventure to find but it's a lovely area to walk around. Well cooked and imaginative combinations. If you're nearby give it a try.

Great moment with friends and family enjoying super good and fresh food and great wine recommendation by the owner and his Jeff. All that we took was super good, raw fish, tuna and knife shells en escabeche and arroz caldoso with blue lobster. was simply delicious. I need to come back again to try the rest of the menu!

Food is excellent. Very good size of the dish, I would recommend sharing (they provide it in two different plates) to try more of the menu.

Although in my opinion, the originality of the preparations seems to lack enough work lately, Both the food, location, and the customer service make it in one of the top 3 restaurants in Tarragona. If you happen to visit it in a very crowded day, they might delay the service a little bit. It is a discreet place, with the... More
