“Amazing experience but...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2014

A dinner at this place is an amazing visual experience. The various courses are presented with color, texture and shapes that you very seldom experience elsewhere. The service is top class and very attentive.

The food is very nice with focus on fish and shellfish but... you can have a meal just as tasty in other restaurants for half the price. So, if you only want good food, you can go elsewhere and save your money but if you are looking for a total experience, it is absolutely worth a detour.

“The best diner in Spain”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2014

Just a street from the boulevard of Cambrils you find this excellent restaurant.
Very great atmosphere and perfect service. But a kitchen likes this you hardly
can not find in Spain. Every dish is a very special one.
Do you visit Spain? Do not miss this restaurant

“One of the best in Cambrils”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 March 2014 via mobile

You can't miss out to eat in this restaurant if you are around Cambrils. Awarded with a Michelin star for so many years is not by chance.

“All Bark and no Bite”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 September 2013

We were in the lovely town of Cambrils in August ! This town has a few Michelin star restaurants so we thought we'd try one out. El rincon is bright(too bright) modern and to be honest totally impersonal. We were shown to our table by what seemed to be only one of the 2 waiters serving on on the ground floor . The owner wandered around with an attitude of apathy and disinterest which was very off putting . A selection of tasting menus are available at varying prices but we opted for the a la carte . Prawn carpaccio @€35 which turned out to be ONE prawn thinly sliced in excellent scented Cambrils olive oil! Not worth it !!! My husband opted for foie gras which was unappealing in its presentation and flavour! Main courses of crispy???? Suckling pig and lamb were also boring and the pig was far from crispy. We experienced a lot of gimmicky ways of presenting the pre appetisers e.g crushed tonic water cans with the amuse bouche sitting on top ! But that's where it ends ! Fruit of some kind featured in each and everyone of these appetisers and there were about 4 in all my husband found all but one extremely unpleasant. This restaurant could do with realising that presentation is no replacement for passion ! The food is mechanical and the restaurant needs warmth both in service and ambiance . Turn the lights down in the evening and put a candle on the table . Not a place for a romantic meal ! Our bill came to €166 . 2 starters,2 mains ,2 glasses of white wine 1/2 red and 2 glasses of cava to begin. We will be returning to Cambrils as we loved the place . But El rincon De Diego won't be top of out list for a return visit!!
