You know it is good when locals enjoy their meals. We walked by the place when it first opened for dinner on a friday night. At first there were just a few people in the joint but then we noticed most tables were reserved. By 22:00, the locals rolled in like there were no other places to eat. For a... More

I usually go there with my family and I have to say that it's one of the best places in Tarragona for families that are looking for a good place to eat and don't want to pay a huge quantity of money. The waitresses are really familiar and make you feel comfortable. Even though is really important to ask for... More

Upscale happy and crowded for our 2:30 lunch. We had reservations and we were escorted to a nice corner table upstairs. Everyone was very courteous and patient with our mutual language gap. Service here is great, bread is totally fine, and the first and second courses were fine dining quality. Finishing off with a caffe leche-the best coffee we've had... More

I dicovered the Restaurant Taranta through my mother, she recommended it to me because of its excellent value for money. I was not disappointed. Their choice of food is very wide: their tapas are generous and innovating, the food is fresh and excellent quality and their rices (paella and other types) are just great and ideal if you want to...

We came in here on Christmas Eve for a menu del dia, on the strength of the other TA reviews. There were a few places we thought of going, but this one attracted us because of the kerb appeal and the choice of dishes available for the lunch menu. It was absolutely wonderful. There wasn't an English menu, but our... More

This North End spot is not your run-of-the-mill Italian restaurant. The Puruvian-Italian fusion menu is fun and unique. If you are a foodie, and/or if you care at all about sustainable, responsible agriculture, check it out! You will enjoy the food, and the service. Make sure you come hungry!
