Sant Carles de la Ràpita
Rustic tapas bar at the crossroads below Casa Baaij. Shirt-sleeved ambience in a large hall with wooden tables and long tapas bar. Meeting place for locals and visitors to the port. Occasionally there are football matches on the TV above the entrance door. It can get noisy then. Also suitable for a communal parlour game at the table if you want to leave the flat for a moment.
Address: Carrer de la Dàrsena, 20, 43540 Sant Carles de la Ràpita.
Opening hours: 8:00-00:00.
A bottle of the house wine costs only slightly more than in the supermarket and is a good companion for the evening. The patatas bravas and jamon crudo on pan tomato are great. Marieta and Vincent do their best to spread a pleasant Spanish-style atmosphere.
Personal rating: ****
Tapas bar in the same building below Casa Baaij. Small bar in the house, which seems relatively cold and uncomfortable. A larger dining area on the opposite side of the street under a tent and a few street seats invite you to drink white wine in the sun. Tapas and 3-course menus are also served there. Also suitable if you only want to leave the flat for a short aperitivo.
Address: Carrer de la Vista Alegre, 6, 43540 Sant Carles de la Ràpita.
Opening hours: 8:00-23:30.
The small mussels and the boccerones are recommended.
Personal rating: ***
La Moderna also serves tapas, like most Spanish bars, yet it has more of a classic, drinks-focused feel. It’s already busy during the day, as it has some very nicely situated outdoor seating at the bottom of a small park area. A wide range of drinks from beer to wine to vermouth lets you linger late into the night. An open-air temptation in the city centre

A recommendable fish restaurant in the medium price category. Pleasant atmosphere both inside and outside. Due to the air conditioning, you should have enough to wear even in warm weather, as it can be quite frosty inside even in high summer.

Tip: Ask for the daily fresh fish. Speciality fish in salt crust
Even though Marieta is called “Taperia”, we would rather classify the multi-storey gastronomy in the area of restaurants. Beautifully situated opposite Casa Baaij on the park, Marieta offers an outdoor terrace on the upper floor with a view over the harbour as well as outdoor seating. Here, too, the focus is more on fish specialities. Price range normal to medium. A pleasant, well-kept feel-good atmosphere.

Down-to-earth bar frequented mainly by locals. Tourists occasionally stray into the outdoor seating. They also offer small dishes to eat. Rather Cheap & Cheerful.
