We had a lovely evening eating delicious tapas in the buzzy square. The owner is very friendly and welcoming. The tapas is high quality, cooked to perfection and made from local and bio produce. Gin and Tonics were fab and the wine delicious.

My boyfriend and I were looking for somewhere to eat in Tarragona on a Monday night . We took to trip advisor to see the highest rated restaurants. As it was a Monday night most were not open so we settled for Lola Tapes which was ranked far down the list and this being said we didn't expect much. On... More

Came here on a visit to Tarragona from Salou - went for an authentic tapas experience and we weren't disappointed! Worth asking if you don't speak much Spanish - as they have printed sheets behind the bar with the menu translated into different languages including English. We ordered the Patatas Bravas, Russian Salad, tomato bread, prawns and a selection of... More

Had a wonderful meal here with my wife, friendly attentive service in a wonderful atmosphere. The wine is excellent, and the food amongst the best I've had. The octopus with potato and romesco is in my top 5 dishes of all time. Visit this restaurant - you'll love it!

I came here based on a recommendation from a friend and it definitely lived up to expectations. The octopus was divine, other tapas like the croquettes perfectly done, and the wine list was extensive and varied. The owners are a lovely friendly couple, which always helps the likability of a place. Don't be put off by its location on one... More

I don't speak much Spanish and am an adventurous eater, so I chose tapas by pointing to items on the menu not exactly sure what was going to come out. It's a small restaurant and was very full, so I didn't want to waste the very polite waiter's time to explain the whole menu. Not one was a dud and... More

We dined twice at Lola Tapes and found it to be delicious food. Frequented mostly by locals, it was full both nights, and we weren't a bit surprised. Ingredients were fresh and treated respectfully. Presentation was attractive without being silly. Salads and vegetables are a strong suit, but everything is good, including desserts. Had we stayed in Tarragona longer, we... More

We were after some interesting and tasty tapas, which is exactly what we got. The albondigas were magnificent; so incredibly tasty that we asked for bread to mop up all the sauce. The octopus on the bed of potato - Polpo con patate - was also memorable; tender meat and beautifully cooked. Likewise other simple things such as the tomato... More
