I had seen reviews for this restaurant on Trip Advisor prior to our trip to Cambrils and we walked past it a couple of times, debating whether to go there or not for an evening meal. However, we wandered past early this afternoon and decided to give it a try.

We are only very basic Spanish speakers - something we mean to remedy - but the waiting staff were brilliant and put us at our ease, so we all managed to understand each other in the end. We chose baked cod and asked for advice on a good white wine to go with it. I can only say that the cod dish was fabulous, cooked to perfection, and it's a long time since l've had a better bottle of wine. We both had lovely desserts - my husband being gently teased over his choice, which could comfortably have fed four people! Added to that, three delicious appetizers, tasty freshly baked bread which was very handy in soaking up the delicious sauce that covered the cod, and tiny glasses of pear poached in wine with cream, with coffee to finish, we had pretty much the perfect meal and afternoon, never once feeling rushed.

Would highly recommend!

The best mussels I've ever eaten in my life. And with the 'paella' you can touch the sky. Best restaurant in Cambrils and in a few kilometers.

Easy to find and very personal service, if a bit quiet on the night we ate here. Superb kitchen for seafood in this well established family run restaurant. You won't leave hungry, for sure.

Probably the oldest family restaurant in Cambrils. And that is good. Founded in 1966, the third generation is now running the restaurant, retaining the old values while incorporating new ideas about food, dishes, preparation and cooking. Lovely and hospitable staff, these people are happy when you are enjoying your meal.

Very tasteful and creative appetisers, a menu with the emphasis on the best the sea has to offer and decent, affordable wines to match. We had their sea bass in a salt crust (‘Lubina a la sal’) which must be among the best on the planet. This is where the Spaniards go when they want a really good meal.

Couple of streets in from the harbour, unassuming place from the outside but please make the effort. Lovely people running a proper restaurant, I can see why it's lasted almost 50 years.

We were with two small children (2 years and 9 months) so only went for lunch (3 times, seriously it's that good). 15 euro for 4 course menu of the day is great value, add on a local Penedes wine recommendation, and for 50 euro total you'll be eating food worthy of a Star in most places.

Seafood heaven, but great Foie Gras starter too. The squid with tomato is great, olive bread to die for, throw in hugely warm and friendly service and you have a place you will remember for ages. Best meal(s) of the trip.

If you're not with kids, imagine it would be great for dinner.
