Found this little gem walking the side streets of Tarragona. Definitely worth seeking out if you want traditional food other than the obvious pizza joints down the street. Great tapa's, friendly welcome, great wine...recommended!

Had menu del dia. Starter was spinachrisotto, which was very good. The main food was a combination of different grilled meats with french fries. It was ok, but nothing special. As a whole, the size was more than enough. Cheap and good wine.

The food was great and not pricy at all, while the owners of the place were very friendly. Go for daily menu and ask for a bottle of wine. 25 eur for 2 people.
