Finding an open restaurant in November was proving a challenge. We found this place by chance. Lunch was limited to a short choice fixed price menu but was excellent in every respect. Simple, tasty and excellent value

We ate here based on some of the reviews as we were staying in the area, and I have to say that I wasn't all that impressed. My wife's order was messed up so she didn't get to eat a main course. I asked for water and was served warm tap water, which then gave me an upset stomach. Steak... More

Fantastic food and service. At 24e, the daily menu is really worth it. Been here several times, never let me down. Don't miss it.

After a lovely afternoon at the beach we came to this restaurant based on the tripadvisor reviews. The location was perfect, service was impeccable and the food superb. Only slightly more expensive than the average beach taverna, if it all, but the food and service were far better than usual. If we are even remotely close to Torredembarra we will... More

During vacation we visited several restaurants in Torredembarra. But to "El Capitan" we even returned several times to try all their fish dishes. For me best was "Dorada" prepared in salt.

The Fish Soup is a must. The head Waitress, owner (????), spoke at least Spanish, Catalan, German and English and apparently a bit of Russian. Good Food. Try the Priorat Essio Red Wine.

The fish is so perfectly cooked here; the meal will not let you down of you love seafood. Here are two examples: the trunc of hake with the divine melt in your mouth vegetables and potatoes was our main course following a little tapas with the warm bread (cover charge 1.30euro). Very decent white wine (a Torres) at only 16... More
