OK, so the UK had been locked in permafront and a nuclear winter since October, so any sun-baked Roman stone square would have done. But sitting outside with a table of friends in the April sunshine was the ideal tonic. Our Catalan hosts knew which rice dishes to pick and the monkfish with artichoke paella was the hit, closely followed up by the traditional marisco paella.
The local Mont Sant red (Mas Collet) was just the young, full-bodied crianza that worked well with the slight bitterness of the dish - although the white lovers praised the Montebaco Verdejo from Rueda. Service helpful and friendly.

In a previous review about half a year ago I mentioned that the wine list was short and not very fortunate. I came back by the end of october 2011 and found the same good food and a new, very much improved and reasonably priced wine list. Congratulations !

Walking through Tarragona with an appetite for Paella we stumbled upon Ca l'Oscar and was immediately impressed buy its setting. Built into an area dominated by its Roman Ruins, and with a lovely outdoor seating area that takes in tons of sunlight, the setting was lovely. It was busy with locals and we had to wait a few minutes for a table, but it was worth it. Get the seafood Paella -- the best I've had in Spain. Just delightful!

We went in May on a cool evening when the tables and chairs were not set out and it might have been possible to pass the place by without noticing, save that we were recommended it by our small hotel. Inside they are warm, welcoming and the prices are good, especially for the excellent wines. We ate well without a complaint or disappointment and only left at 1.30am when we were not the last to go! Simple decor and furnishings without fuss. This place does not do elegance, just honesty and decent food. We paid £180 for 4 and ate like kings including, I'm embarrassed to admit, 4 bottles of wine!
