“Probably the most pleasant surprise in 2 years of Tarragona”
Reviewed 1 May 2012

Decided to try this one with the Ms. (recommended by some friends).
Its a 'catalan taverna' sort of place, with mostly pasta and pizza, but you get all sort of other stuff of course. Please be careful and ask for the MEDIUM size ones, especially if ordering salads first, you will not be able to eat it all, its HUGE, and i'm sort of a pig when it comes to food :D
Try this - spaghetti milanese (get ready for a surprise, is not what you think:D) and romesco salad, as well as the 'vino de la casa'.
So far we've been there every weekend, it is by far our favourite place in TGN.
Also the waitress there, Dora, is a lovely figure :D
As for prices, up to like one month ago, they were ridiculously cheap, not they are slightly higher, but still one of the best value meals in central TGN.
Enjoy your holidays!

“Great Spaghetti Bolognese!”
Reviewed 8 June 2010

Cal Faune is tucked away on Carrer Girona just off Rambla Nova. It's small and intimate and seems to be a favorite among locals. Lively atmosphere, good house wine, hearty romesco salad (a 'nutty' meal on its own), and an out-of-this-world spaghetti bolognese (could not finish it--took it to go and had it for lunch next day--fantastic!). Food is plentiful and service isn't fussy; good pizza too.

Reviewed 9 August 2009

We had 3 excellent dishes, the caneloni, the roquefort steak and the Faune spagetti. Frindly service. We might be back If I am good.
