We were in Tarragona for a wedding and took the time to visit the city. We had lunch here twice, the fish and the paella was simply delicious. Very nice and quite area, tasty wine and a perfect price performance ratio. Go for the fish, especially the turbot!

This is a very nice spot for an outdoor lunch, located right by the steps that lead up to the cathedral. They have two lunch menus, neither of them expensive, and the wine list is quite good and reasonable. The first courses at our table were okay, not remarkable, and the mains and desserts very tasty. Their dinner menu is... More

The restaurant is situated at the base of the steps to the Cathedral. The food was of excellent quality at prices that were very cheap compared to UK prices. The only difficulty was what to choose from a range of paellas and fish dishes.

Great location situated under the Cathedral, nice restaurant and good food, but overall the terrible service obscures any positive aspects. We were recommended to come and eat at this restaurant as we had never been in Tarragona. Our waiter did not understand our order, even if expressed in their language. We had only half of the food delivered to us... More

Had their menu del dia for lunch here one day, great value delicious seafood paella and a giant bowl of mussels, all washed down with a nice bottle of recardeo cava! A nice setting near the cathedral, with friendly relaxed service. Would recommend.

Opted for the special menu at €15 per person and 1/2 litre of sangria. Just delicious and no complaints about the service. A great place for lunch after a visit to the cathedral.

I saw this restaurant yesterday as we tried to find a place to eat in the historic town. I dont really know what was going on yesterday but it was almost impossible to find a place to sit and eat. It was about 10 pm, the city full of people.. So my eye caught this restaurant and its meals. They... More

Go somewhere else. We tried the 16.50€ menu plus taxes. Not worth it, the wood table was tender than the entrecot. 45min to have the starters, confusion all the time with the order. Pity the terrace is wonderful!
