Being born in Tarragona, quality-price is paramount. You would be able to taste typical Catalan/Spanish see food. For diner it is open quite soon. You cannot miss it!!

It's been the classic place to eat shrimps, mussels or fried calamari in the Serrallo fishermen neighborhood, for the last 50 years. Now surrounded by many competing restaurants, some are more expensive, but none has achieved the familiar atnosphere and good service of l'Ancora.

Got in just on time, as we were leaving there was a queue but not for long. Staff were attentive but slightly forgetful at times. Food was good and worth the stop, would return on another visit.
