It was midweek in Tarrgona and raining... we wandered the streets looking for somewhere to eat, having made a short list before we went out. Some were closed, some didn't really live up to expectations.. This place had a good menu, but we were not sure it was open. The door took some opening and there was a bit of a wait before somebody appeared...
We were eventually shown to a table as far away from the door as possible, despite being the only customers! That said, the food was good, the service friendly...and eventually some other customers turned up... but not many.

I cannot speak highly enough of this restaurant... extraordinary value for the quality of the Catalonian food, and very helpful service even with the language barrier. The seafood paella was superb. Also a very nice ambience.

The paella is the signature dish here and they do it well. Not the best we've had but very good.
A bit light on the seafood but great flavor and properly au dente rice.

We were starving after arriving in Tarragona via train from Barcelona. Found Barquet via yelp. We were super early for lunch 12:30pm (not really but everyone in Spain eats late) so the place was empty. The decor's super cute. Owner greeted and seated us right away and made all the recommendations. Since the menu were all in Catalan we left the decision to the owner to make the choices for us. (see my pics) We sort of told him what we liked and preferred and he did the rest. Every dish from the Gazpacho, cheese and bread to the Seafood Paella tasted so good and so fresh. Please order the Calamari and mushroom stir fry. You won't regret it :) You can actually taste the freshness. The owner's suggestions were perfect for our party of four. We were very satisfied and felt full but not heavy. They serve great coffee and the dessert were to me just okay. The service was wonderful, the restaurant was super clean. Just a really enjoyable experience. Must try if you go to Tarragona. The city is beautiful and perfect for a 1 day excursion.
