Although there's no English or Spanish menu, we have a great experience here! Everything the staff recommend us are amazingly tasty and the wine as well. The staff won't recommend the expensive dishes, he will give his advice sincerely and match your appetite. The service is also the best we have ever had in Europe, the staff are always smile...

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

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...
