In the area of gastronomy, what stands out in this province are its activities that also include wine tasting and the different gastronomic festivals that are celebrated in the province. In them you can delight in dishes such as la calcotada and el xató. Do not leave the province without going to restaurants such as Restaurant Les Moles in Ulldecona a place that is warm and friendly and serves traditional cuisine. We have also eaten well at Restaurant Racó de Mar in Port Aventura de Salou and we like the atmosphere there in an old fishing house where they serve Mediterranean cuisine. Those who like modern cuisine can enjoy themselves at  Restaurant Bruixes de Burriac in Altafulla, in a new and beautiful building that serves creative cuisine.
