My friend and I decided to go to dinner here based on all the positive trip advisor reviews. The options on the menu looked promising, innovative and different from the usual tapas selections you'll find in other places, so we ordered a few tapas selections full of hope and anticipation but were disappointed at the portion sizes (tiny) as well...

I am from Barcelona and had lunch with some friends which are from Tarragona. The food and service were excellent. It is definitely worth the visit

We decided to choose this restaurant based on tripadvisor's rating according to the long list of reviews as well as a good score. Moreover we were very near to the restaurant while we did our search. The restaurant is nicely decorated and the staff is well trained and ready to answer all your questions about the plates. We asked for... More

A whistle stop visit to Tarragona left me and the family looking for a good value place to eat. An internet search steered us in the direction of El Terrat and I am very glad it did. Me and the family arrived very early but the staff pleasantly accommodated us for an evening meal experience and the word 'experience' is... More

The terrace is good, you can seat outside and see a sea, but service... A service was terrible, waitresses are not nice, they do not like if you make any requests, like it is not their job. They forgot what we ordered, so we reminded 3 times. I was waiting for meat for 1hour and a half and they brought... More

During my 3 weeks in Tarragona, we visited El Terrat (twice) and several restaurants. Comparing the different restaurants with El Terrat, El Terrat won hands down every time. The owner is a young man who speaks very good english. The food is of outstanding quality and very fresh. Every day there is a different menu. Great option to order is... More

If you are in Tarragona, do not miss this restaurant. Fresh materials, local specialties, all very good at very reasonable prices. The only suggestion I would have for them is make sure the desert pie is fully de-frozen

Excellent little spot - as they say - on the Terrace overlooking the ocean. Had an excellent prix fixe lunch including wine, bread,water coffee for only 18 euros. Friendly waiters explained the choices. This isn't cordon blue and isn't meant to be. It's good honest Catalan food. I would have paid the 18eu for the excellent red wine on it's... More

Been there with the Ms, the food is good with excellent presentation. The staff is friendly and helpful, there were a few goofs though (like the icecream dessert coming without the icecream, sorted without us asking). Really interesting, creative and heavenly tasting tapas. It is not cheap, mind you. The atmosphere and view on the terrace might be one of... More

I've tried the food and think its very average.. To start; I had a salad with anchovies I'd probably say it was more of a cheese and tomato salad.. Main; I had lamb with Cous Cous and chimichurri sauce, well the Cous Cous was very sloppy, the lamb chops had very little meat on them and the chimichurri sauce was... More
