“Excellent food, excellent experience, excellent value for money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2013

I found this restaurant wandering the Old Town, looking for a place to eat with family and friends. It looked interesting and I asked to see a menu. The owner explained that they have no menu, that he was the menu; everything is cooked by his wife. So I made a reservation. We had a fantastic night. We sat outside. The owner suggested dishes and we said yes to everything. The owner apologised that his English was not good (and my Spanish is worse) but we communicated without much difficulty. We had about six or seven dishes, all quite good: squid, potatos bravas, halibut, dessert. The final bill was extremely reasonable, less than 30 euros per person, including drinks and coffee.

“Market food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013

Fresh ingredients of the season, specially local sea food.
The owner who waits himself is very friendly
The lunch menu is not writen but told, which makes it original.
We like it!

“Real gem in the heart of Old Town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2012

A husband and wife couple serve truly excellent food in the heart of Old Town Tarragona. There is no real menu, but the genial owner presents his best of the day in some English, but mostly Spanish, but he understands your needs. The food is excellent and so are the service and the atmosphere. Do visit it!
