Tiny place, gets hot and is packed on any night. Food was ok. It's not like Tex Mex places in US....in a good way. Big portions. However the atmosphere is more like a loud nightclub. Everyone shouting, loud music, etc... Ok if that's what you're expecting. Not an intimate setting. But overall good experience

The service was amazing! The owner is very friendly, portions of food are HUGE, the food tastes great, and the prices are very reasonable! Just make sure to ask about portion size before you order because they are HUGE !!! Nachos with cheddar cheese are amazing! There are two salsa's, spicy and mild, but both are very tasty ! I would definitely reccommend this restraint if you are looking for quality food for reasonable prices! Not touristic at all !

Tarantura is a cossy Mexican restaurant in Sants.
Is the perfect place to go with a group of friends. The atmosphere is relaxed, the stuf is friendly and a nice experience is garanteed.
The food is really nice, and the size of the dishes are huge. Ask the waiter for the size of your dish, if you are not very hungry, sometimes is better to order just one plate for two people.
On Fridays and Saturdays is allways full, you´d better book in advance.
It´s not expensive, it will be around 20€ earch, which is nothing taking into account how much food you eat.
I really reccomend this place. It´s the best mexican restaurant in the area.
