“The place to be”
Reviewed 9 November 2012

The best restaurant in Porrera doesnt do praise enough guys as there are only two!! It really is a little gem of the town (and region). Delightful couple, great food, enchanting atmosphere, excellent local wines and so, so reasonable. Five guys, two bottles of very nice wine and a three course lunch with coffee for 130 euro. During our long lunch many local people came in to dine and added to the atmosphere. Just great.

“Excellent”
Reviewed 19 October 2012

What a treat, a totally unique restaurant run by a really enthusiastic gourmet. Decor is a mix of high quality modern and artistically aging lime plaster, real character. Highly recommend you speak to the owner, rather than just ordering, food and wine, he is a fantastic guy, informative and friendly. The wine, superb, take his advice on what suits you best, as most visitors will realise, you are in the center of local high quality winemaking in Priorat.

A very special place, easy a "5"

“The best restaurant in the Priorat!”
Reviewed 27 September 2012

I dined here last week while in Spain on a winery tour. We were a group of 15 or so, and the staff was very warm and welcoming, the food was excellent, wine list is amazing, and yet the ambience is so casual and stress-free.

Make a point of stopping here when you pass through Porrera...or anywhere in Priorat for that matter, since the villages are very close to each other.

They also have a shop connected where you can buy wine, just sayin'.

“True local flavor - both food and atmosphere”
Reviewed 3 August 2012

We visited this restaurant by chance while wine-tasting in the Priorat region. What an unexpected treat it was. Run by a man and wife team, the wife is in the kitchen, they serve a fabulous lunch for 12 Euros including wine using all local ingredients and recipes, many of them original from the mind of the chef. A couple we had were gazpacho made from tomatoes and beets with a little olice oil for texture, and a superb zesty lamb stew, though the menu changes daily based on what is fresh.
The couple themselves speak English and will probably visit your table for a chat.

“Great food and service!”
Reviewed 10 June 2012

Had lunch twice with my wife. The food and atmosphere were excellent and unpretentious. The owner is a happy and quirky fellow who received us very well and gave us good tips of what to do in the region.

We ordered a bottle of wine the second time around - his recommendation was right on and the price super reasonable, as is often the case in Priorat.
