“Excellent food and lovely views”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

Visited for lunch and had the set menu, which was excellent value. Loved the paella and the pumpkin ice-cream. Portions were very generous and the wine list was good and well-priced. The service was really friendly. The meal, including aperitifs and wine, came to just over 60 euros for three. Excellent value- would really recommend.

“Fantastic food in a Beautiful Setting”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

Came across this restaurant whilst wandering around the old part of the city. The setting was beautiful and the staff incredibly helpful, translating the specials board for us and explaining it the best they could. Me and my husband at the most fantastic fillet steak topped with foie gras and roasted chillies, topped with and incredible sauce. It was expensive but worth every penny.

“Wonderful gem in the middle of the roman town”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

Wow what an excellent restaurant. We found this whilst wandering and glad we tried it. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful and the food was stunning. We couldnt find any fault whatsoever. The kids menu is also excellent. Slightly on the expensive side but worth every penny.

“Excellent restaurant in the centre of the city”
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”
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.
