“Delicious Food, Nice People, Worth the Expense”
Reviewed June 28, 2012

I travel to Cambrils about 6 times per year for business, and I go to La Cua Curta every time. Usually I get either the meat fondue or a steak fillet (both cooked at table), with multiple Catalan appetizers. Everything at this restaurant is more delicious than it's normal version at nearby restaurants, from the bread with tomatoes to the olives to the cured ham, and the fondue is a fun experience. The waiter / owner is happy to chat with you about what type of food you want to eat and give you wine recommendations. Some highlights: the bacalao (cod) carpaccio, which is a common item in the area but which tastes much more delicious with the high quality oil and perfect tomatoes; the salad with tomato marmalade; and especially the lemon and chocolate cakes for dessert. Their cake desserts are better than the chocolate fondue, so go for a meal followed by dessert. You can trust the waiter to bring great food just by telling him what type of things you like and telling him to surprise you. It's a somewhat expensive dinner, but the wine is very reasonable for a fancy place, and it's definitely worth the price.

“Nice food but slow service”
Reviewed January 15, 2012

Nice place closed to Calle Princesa.
Saturday night, 9pm, we did not book and were a table of 5; we were warmly welcomed.
No menu but nice choice of "combinados" and "embotidos caseros"; 2 sets of friends tried 2 different fondues and I picked "el plato cua curta".
Both fondues were fine (despite lack of bread; we had to ask thrice); very nice tartare.

BEWARE:
Though it's indicated (small characters on the bottom of the menu) we were not aware we would be charged for dishes &bread (1.30€pp; which is rather unusual in BCN).
I ordered some "pan con tomate" to eat with my "plato cua curta" and got 5 peaces; each pan was charged 0.80€....I ordered one set not 5..! ;-(
In total we were supposed to pay 10.50€ for bread... which was either not fresh/tasty or not ordered... After short discussion we eventually got some discount... ;-)
