We have been living in Tarragona for 5 years now and can honestly say that in this "restaurant" we had the worst fideua marinera - ever. Sticky, tasteless, swimming in broth...The supermarket ones are 5 classes above. Long waiting time just to order, even though the place was not at all crowded. They simply ignore you. If they hear you... More

We planned to visit Meson del Mar in one day of our vacation in Tarragona to eat paella. Restaurant is opened for supper from 8 p.m. usually. But when we came to entrance door we saw announcement «tonight restaurant is opened from 20.30». Although we were very hungry we decided to walk a little and wait for opening. At 20.30... More

After arriving in Tarragona, we decided to have lunch first and settled here. We ordered a selection of tapas between the four of us and each dish was more than generous portion wise. The service was average, nothing special, but the food was good and tasty. It was an above average experience, the views are great, the setting is glorious... More

Me and my girlfriend was looking for a place to eat and with Mesón Del Mars calm atmosphere and nice interior we decided that this should be the place. For starters we ordered some goat cheese to share and for the main course a pan of fideuà. The starter course was around five euros and the fideuà around 11. The... More

What were we thinking? Menu of the Day at a Seafood restaurant and we chose meat?!? So some of the quality of our food experience could probably be attributed to our lack of understanding regarding food preparation details and the fact that we should have chosen to eat fish! We had excellent service, great wine, fantastic desserts, and a beautiful... More

We were looking for a restaurant for lunch in the port area and thought this looked interesting and authentic. It turned out to be superb - the best meal of our holiday! The staff were extremely welcoming, friendly and helpful. The menu offered a great choice and everything we chose was beautifully served and very well-presented. Nothing was too much... More

Had difficulty finding it, required 2 phone calls and asking several people. We originally stopped in the wrong restaurant area which was buzzing; when we finally tracked this one down it was dead. Hardly anyone in the restaurant or around. Still it was highly recommended and we'd booked. Food was very good though not exceptional. We asked the staff and... More

We had a day off (May Day) during a business trip to Tarragona and chose this restaurant for lunch (around 2pm) at random as we were strolling along the waterfront. The views are wonderful, and the inside seating protects you from the cigarette smoke present everywhere outside in Spain. There is an English menu, but it is not always a... More

Good value 16 euros each with a good... More
