“Excellent restaurant in the centre of the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

Another excellent restaurant in Tarragona, in the very centre of the city. While wondering around with friends for choosing a place to eat, we passed 2-3 times outside and we were worried that it may be touristy due to its location, right next to the cathedral. In the end, we followed our intuition and visited 'La cuca fera' and never regretted.

The food was very good, we tried several local dishes. Service was very nice and friendly, helped us with all the questions regarding the available options. The recommended wine was great and deserts as well. All in all, a good place for your meal.

We left the place happy and without a doubt that if we go to Tarragona again, we have one safe option for eating.

“Great find in the middle of old town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

It's hard to find a bad place to eat in Tarragona but some are more excellent than others. We went twice to La Cuca Fera because of the quality of their seafood (very fresh it was amazing) and their other light dishes and wine. Recommendable as it's right opposite the cathedral coming down the stairs.

“Set Menu - Superb!! 13.50 or 15 euros”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2012

stumbled across this restraurant, when walking down steps of cathedral. Its was excellent. Had the the set menu at 13.50 which included starters such as mixed salad, tuna pasta, mussells followed by Duck with pear, fish or paella and then ice-cream, yogurt or melon.
The standard and quality of the food, service and staff were outstanding. Puts scottish cuisine to shame

“As promised on Tripadvisor!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

Superb food and good value as all previous reviews had said. Paid a total of 80 Euros for a three course meal with wine. Particularly enjoyed turbot stew, home made croquettes and truffles. Staff were very helpful and friendly but not over the top. Good value house wine too. Would definitely recommend and will return.

“located just opposit the ancient Cathedral”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

food excellent, especially fish, but the place is expensive. It has been renovated inside, but everyone sits outside, under wonderful umbrellas. Very friendly atmosphere, purely Catalan.
