This place is situated in a square close to the circus. They have very tasty salads (lobster, cheese) and specialise in risotto dishes (minimun 2 persons). We tried that are were not disappointed. The chef even came out to our table to show what he prepared. Probably some people have been put off by the greyish mass in the big pot. We were not. The taste was formidable and it contained asparagus and mussels. To this we had a white Priorat 2008 which was excellent.

Wandering through old town Tarragona in search of dinner, we selected El Llagut because the room looked comfortable & appealling and the posted menu reasonable.
At our table was a card, in Catalan, with an 8-course tasting menu for 21 euros. What we could puzzle out looked interesting enough so we chose to try it. Some dishes were certainly more successful than others, At this price its unreasonable to expect everything to be stellar. There were some excellent creative dishes among the 8 courses. The meal started with a little shot glass of water-cress & smoked eel soup. The pastry with quail & mushrooms was excellent. The squid "burger" with white beans very fresh tasting & good. The after-eight dessert was an excellent finale, just a little chocolate brownie with ice-cream, but both imbued with a wonderful fresh mint flavour that took dessert from ordinary to wonderful. I felt some of the dishes were over-salted for my taste, but that's a common restaurant quibble.
One of the two waiters was able to translate from Catalan to English ( or at least to castellano if the vocabulary was lacking) as our dishes arrived. The first waiter felt it necessary to warn us that the dishes were served " sin prisa " & the meal would take about 2 hrs. Perhaps they have had difficulty with other N. American customers, but really we weren't expecting McDegustacion.
We were there on a Saturday night, so cannot say if the tasting menu is regularly available. From our brief look, you would probably be happy ordering from the regular menu also.
