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.
