Enjoyed the simplicity of the food served on 2 occasions during our stay in Tamariu. Good service and reasonably priced. Lovely view of the beach when eating which is a bonus

We had dinner here because of the reviews but wished we hadn't. Parts of the meal were OK and the Rioja was first class. However the fish components to the main course were very poor value (9 clams for 9 Euros). When it came to dessert we chose to share the truffles as my wife didn't really want dessert. Well... More

We visited for a quick late supper of chicken and salad. Good catalan bread and service with a smile. Good value for what we had which included wine and coffee. Fish can be pricey but we didnt have it this time. Will go again to sit by tbe sea and take in the atmosphere.

What can I say about the food? It is seriously delicious and really fresh! Lots of delicious seafood, but there are other options for vegetarians. Great customer service.

I attended with my family (4 total) for late lunch and we had some tapas style food, including some traditional dishes like "Gambas al Ajillo" (Garlic Prawns), "Chipirones Fritos" (Fried Baby Octopus). Their "Pan con Tomate" was one of the best on my trip to Catalunya. Great tasting food, good service, not overly expensive food; and an amazing view of... More

The food portions were a decent size and the value for money was pretty good. The quality of food was a little on the poor side in my opinion but a good selection of wines at a decent price

A wise man once told me "you pay for the view" and he would have been spot on here. The team was responsive and efficient (friendly is a stretch) but we were underwhelmed by the food here. While the breaded anchovies we shared as an appetiser were interesting they did lack taste. My garlic butter prawns arrived in a small... More

Certainly a good place for a fish meal. We ate catch of the day fish which were cooked perfectly. They also have several children friendly dishes which are reasonably priced and exceed the regular spaghetti / nuggets / burger selection. Service is very friendly and Tamariu beach is a wonderful setting for anything surely for a meal

Thank Adi & Nir D
