“e+nature+charming owners Perfect match: food+winwith a quality product”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

This small restaurant surprises with its charme, the simple but very well selected and composed dishes of fine quality and the extremely helpful owners Mia and Litus. The attached fotos may help "newcomers" to plan a detour to Porrera famous for its excellent wines. Accomodation in "Cal Porrera" - a few steps away might be a good idea, taking home a few bottles from "Sangenis & Vaque", Plaza Catalunya" will round off the stay; that´s exactly what we did.

“Great simple cooking”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

It was a pleasure to eat in a restaurant with an owner so knowledgeable about his food and wine.
The food ranged from the wholesome and rustic (faves with morcilla) to the delicate (rocket with foie).
There is an enormous choice of wine, mainly local, so we enlisted the help of the owner, just describing the type and the price range. He chose us the perfect bottle.
There was a little hiccup with the service caused by an obnoxious American couple who seemed determined to monopolise their waitress, but the owner put it right and was kind enough to offer us coffee and digestives by way of compensation.
A lovely experience in a very pretty town.

“Excellent restaurant and service”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

We had lunch at La Cooperativa on Sunday. The restaurant was full -it was The Wine Fair in Falset- yet the staff was very attentive, and we were served quite fast. The menu is not very long but all the dishes we had were very good. Mediterranean cuisine with a modern twist, locally grown ingredients, very well cooked. The restaurant is cozy, not too fancy, and we felt very comfortable eating there.

“The place to be”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

The best restaurant in Porrera doesnt do praise enough guys as there are only two!! It really is a little gem of the town (and region). Delightful couple, great food, enchanting atmosphere, excellent local wines and so, so reasonable. Five guys, two bottles of very nice wine and a three course lunch with coffee for 130 euro. During our long lunch many local people came in to dine and added to the atmosphere. Just great.

“Excellent”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

What a treat, a totally unique restaurant run by a really enthusiastic gourmet. Decor is a mix of high quality modern and artistically aging lime plaster, real character. Highly recommend you speak to the owner, rather than just ordering, food and wine, he is a fantastic guy, informative and friendly. The wine, superb, take his advice on what suits you best, as most visitors will realise, you are in the center of local high quality winemaking in Priorat.

A very special place, easy a "5"
