Casa Balcells se encuentra ubicado en una acogedora casa medieval que ha sido reformada de tal manera que la historia y las necesidades actuales conviven en perfecta armonía. Nada más poner un pie dentro, te transportarás a los tiempos romanos y medievales de Tarragona. Un viaje que continúa a través de su cocina que ofrece riquísimas tapas con los mejores productos de temporada. Eso sí, con una visión actualizada. No se olvidan de las tradiciones, por eso cuentan con un espacio de vermutería en el que disfrutar del aperitivo a base de unas anchoas de las buenas con aceite de oliva extravirgen, unos boquerones especiales con picadita de tomate y cebolla o de sus bravas con salsa especial. En este mismo espacio también puedes disfrutar de un café o un helado frente a la Catedral.

INSIDER tip

En el sótano está la bodega en la que podrás encontrar algunos restos romanos. ¡Genial!

    I loved the location by the cathedral. Service was very friendly and attentive and food was very tasty. I had (and I can recommend) the cod croquetas, the octopus and the lemon and white chocolate truffle.

    Absolutely beautiful view - sat outside right in front of the Tarragona Cathedral. Vermouth was good and moderately priced, Paella and Patatas Bravas were good but not great. All in all, a great location and atmosphere with good food at a moderate price.

    The restaurant was very cold and we had to eat our meal with our coats on. That was not a good start. Service and food was fine. The inside of the restaurant is a bit sterile
