Located in Tarragona old town with Roman walls forming part of the structure, this restaurant is well worth a visit. The owner is knowledgeable and friendly and speaks English - he was forthcoming with recommendations, all of which were great.

We had a selection of starters - gambas, jamon, octopus etc, followed by sea bass. All was excellent, as was the local Priorat wine.

The food is simply prepared and is not over-elaborate, and is very good as a result. The food quality is high.

Strongly recommended, and also it is open on Monday, which many restaurants aren't!

So hard to find something open on a Monday beyond the dodgy looking tourist traps in the various squares. This is a great little restaurant. Quiet. Great decor. Excellent service and good food. And a very nice red by the glass. Highly recommended

We went with Spanish colleagues on a Monday evening for dinner. This is one of the few places that is also open on a Monday evening. The restaurant was pretty empty. We had some plates to share as starters. The pulpo and the calcots were very good. Main dish I had goat. The meat dishes are relatively small and for 6 people we did have quite a bill at the end. Crema catalana was ok as well but not extraordinary. The restaurant seems to collect gin bottles and other strange objects which makes the decor a little off beat. Service was good.

The restaurant is cozy and nice. We chose the Aniversary 30 Menú, which costs 30Eur. The food it's good and it includes everything, a bottle of wine if you order wine, a bottle of water, bread, dessert and coffee.
It's great that everything is included and there are no surprises, we really loved that.
However, the price, for the range of the dishes, seemed to us a bit, just a bit, too expensive. The food is delicious but it is not so elaborated...
The service is good and kind, though, had they been a bit faster it would have been nicer.
El restaurante es acogedor y agradable. Elegimos Menú 30 Aniversario, que cuesta 30Eur . La comida es buena y lo incluye todo, una botella de vino si pides vino, una botella de agua, pan, postre y café.
Es muy de agradecer que todo esté incluido y que no haya sorpresas, eso nos encantó.
Sin embargo, el precio, para la gama de los platos, nos pareció un poco demasiado caro.
El servicio es bueno y amable, sin embargo, de haber sido un poco más rápido hubiera sido mejor.

We had lunch, which was excellent value, with a sound wine included in the package. The building is a nicely appointed old one with stone arches. One waiter was extremely helpful and welcoming. We loved Tarragona, and this meal and its setting was a great part of it all.
