Excellent service, Mario is very nice and all the staff in general was very helpful. Food came fast and everything was delicious! The only thing I didn't like was that as soon as you sit they offer you water (the one that is usually free in all restaurants) but here they don't tell you they will charge it and is... More

Went to Salou based on our Colombian friend's recommendation and my wife and I (USA) loved it! We ate about 6 things that night, but the three that we liked the most were: 1) tuna tataki (Los Tataky) which was amazing, and probably the best dish that evening; 2) ceviche trio (triology of ceviches) - we had the pesto, pika...

Went their based on the reviews, food was mediocre at best... We had a reservation but it took us 10 minutes to glad somebody down to seat us... We ordered mojitos that had too much sugar. The ceviche was ok.. We ordered ravioli which was pretty good. When we paid the cheque, the waiter didn't return the change even though... More

Visited here based on reviews in TA, would not recommend it! Took ages to get menus and service, ordered beef ball tips but only one available despite it being early in the evening service, we were one of only 3 tables seated. Cocktails were OK, tuna tasted nice except for the bits which tasted iffy, the two who ate it... More

great location in the historic center without the touristy trappings : interesting menu focused on local seafood with creative twists such as ceviches with pesto and pear, tuna tataki and carpaccio of corvina with fusion, spicy dressings. the wine list is well balanced btw European and South American wines and quite affordable. Professional service.

One of the worst services I have ever received in a restaurant. Waiters completely lost! Some errors: 1) Took at least 10 minutes after seated to get the menu, we had to remember waiter 3 times. 2) Waiter tried for 4 times to make us ask (and pay) for water, when we simply didnt want. They asked, asked again and... More
