We discovered the restaurant by casualty, the menu is quite big and full with local cuisine, the menu has right price according to the quality of what they offer and the quantity. If you decide to choose the menu, I'm sure you won't feel hungry. By the end after the coffee or even if you don't drink the coffee they... More

We had a fabulous meal here today. Homemade pate and beef carpaccio as starters. The pate was awesome, you could tell the love that had gone into making it. We had a glass of Priorat with it which was super. Had chicken with mushrooms and rabbit with garlic majonnaise as mains which were excellent as was dessert. Food was all... More

Good value for the price. Everything tasted all natural. All were homemade; from appetizer up to dessert. Even the digestive alcoholic drinks at the end of the meal! I really liked everything. The escudella, entrecot de ternera, flan de queso, the wine, the bread, everything. A must restaurant in Taull! :)

We really enjoyed our dinner here. Menu was our option. The wine of the house deserves to have a name. We finished the bottle. Awesome canelons, its really homemade and excellent grilled meat. Deserts also were the perfect for a happy ending.

Visited most of the restaurants in the area.. And have to say that El Caliu is hands down the best food in the area. It is worthy of the #1 trip advisor rating, and is even a Michelin guide recommend. Me and my wife choose the daily menu which was our choice of entree, main dish, dessert, wine (the house... More

A nice place with a view, with average food and a poor wine list. The menu (more than 15 euros each) was too expensive for the quality of the cook.

Visited last summer for small lunch and then dinner the same day. Very very good experience. Friendly service, delicious food, fair prices - village hospitality at its best! (Maybe the soup could be improved but really minor point.)

This restaurant was filled with people when we were there and for good reason. The food was excellent. You might want to call for reservations. I started with their Basque vegetable soup, and was brought an entire terrine - and consumed the whole thing, it was so wonderful. Main courses and dessert were great as well. The wine we selected...
