“Top Marks all round”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

Reus is a wonderful destination for the visitor who likes to be surprised. This is a town that offers so much, but you have to be patient to find all it has to offer. So it was with this bar / restaurant / tapas heaven. We saw it first through its side-street windows, where there were people eating in what looked like a museum. The entrance was so difficult to find we almost gave up.
The food was excellent and reasonable, and we will have to return many times to sample the rest of their extensive tapas menu.
What makes Ferreteria an outstanding restaurant is the way everything works in harmony, leaving the customer with a dining experience that goes way beyond eating a delicious meal. On entering we were offered a choice of seating arrangements: bar counter, table, bench . . . the advantages of each option explained to us. We chose the bench which gave us a view of our food being prepared. Our seat was in a room with a very tall ceiling, and the walls were decorated with vintage beer bottles. We had fun identifying them. The staff were not just friendly and warm. They were fast and professional. For me, a huge part of the service in a restaurant is the interaction with the waiting staff. They were absolutely lovely to us. I felt that we were being treated as regular valued guests. Even if we saw everything there was to be seen in Reus, I would be tempted to go back to Ferreteria just to experience more of this. The 27 Euro bill for two (including drinks) seemed ridiculously cheap. We will be back.

“Quick, yummy, and cheap”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

The meal we had was amazing and came out in a flash. This is a perfect family restaurant for tappas lovers and the price is very good. They turned and old hardware store into a beautiful restaurant with a modern outside but a old historic inside.

“The place to be in Reus!”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

I have been to this establishment a few times over my various visits to Reus. I take my daughter as it is child/family friendly. Prices are reasonable, food great (main courses and/or tapas) with good selection of wines/beers. Also, there is an outside area in the small square in front & table service is impeccable. However, sitting inside is lovely to cool down on a hot day & to savour the furnishings of the old ironmonger's shop that it used to be!

“Stylish, interesting & great local food”
Reviewed April 29, 2013 via mobile

Loved it. We had the menu of the day which gave us a selection of great local dishes. The service was speedy. The room was drafty but we loved the way the restaurant has kept the original features of the hardware shop.
