Greatest paella, very accomodating staff, good experience overall. We didn't have a reservation but he got us in anyway and was very good about my seafood allergies. Highly recommended: vegetable paella.

Went there for a bussiness-meeting with a local associate on his recommendation. Service is more than adequate, interior quite modern but also rather cosy. The dishes however were the main attraction. Seafood as fresh as can be and basic but spot-on preparation. Spices kept to minimum to allow the ingredients to display their great flavours.

This lunch was the best meal I had during my stay in Tarragona. The ambience was very pleasant and the food delicious. I had the spicy mussels as an appetizer and black rice with cuttlefish as my main course, a combination I believe other readers have also talked about. It was just delicious. The rice got wheeled up to my... More

This is a fabulous restaurant. Excellent decor and a fabulous environment befitting to the food served. I can highly recommend the rice dishes. The whole meal and experience was delightful. I would recommend this place as a must to visit.

The food is really good and they receive you really well. In my journey in Spain, here I've eaten the best typical paella.

Excellent place to eat rice and local seafood. They have an ample variety of rices (beyond the typical) and very good cephalopod-based dishes like small squid, "gambón", etc.

Went there after being referred to by our local friends. Their recommendations were very complimentary. A friend of ours, born and raised in Tarragona, who cooks very good rice himself, when I asked him about a good rice place that is open on Monday, he told us that "El Barquet" is a very good choice indeed, and that he frequently...

This is restaurant that leaves you with mixed feelings. Not because of the quality of its food which is very good, but because their communication skills. The menu is printed only in Catalan and there are no Spanish or English versions even though their web site has a Spanish version. The owners claims to bring the best of local products... More

Went here after reading other reviews, the street name was easier to put into GPS! No English menu but the waiter recommended good choices to us in English. The food was amazing, 100x better than food we had in Barcelona! We had the fried little shrimps and a fish and mussel paella for 2, we were so full and satisfied!!

Great food (rice dishes were amazing but I certainly recommend the antipasti claims, one of the best claims I ever had) at the right price. Menu is only in catalan, but the waiters are there to guide you through it. We also asked a bottle of white wine to the waiter and, instead of serving us an expensive one, they... More
