A delight for our senses

The setting was beautiful. The food was delicious and visually spectacular. The attention to detail is unlike anything we have ever experienced. A local friend made a reservation for our family of 4. We are Americans and our Spanish is not great. We have 1 vegan, 1 vegetarian, and 2 omnivores... read more

I've read nothing but positive reviews, but our experience did not match that of other reviewers. I found the concept interesting but the execution left much to be desired. The service was spotty and 2 or 3 of our entree orders were somehow forgotten. After waitng quite some time the food arrived (after others in our party were finished) and... More

I sat on the patio. This is not a restaurant. It's a theatre that serves food. The food is good but I would never go back. It's way over the top and quite expensive. The whole thing is a pantomime. Save yourself the bother and go to another restaurant where it doesn't take 3 1/2 hours to have lunch.

I had a lovely meal here. I had the tasting menu, with a large number of dishes. There were some fascinating and unusual tastes. I had a cheap bottle of wine that was superb. The cost of the meal was very reasonable given its quality. A couple of points: there are a great many courses in the tasting menu and... More

We had a very entertaining lunch here in August -- it took most of the afternoon. I feel honour-bound to report that it was very much style over substance; not all of the flavours and combinations worked, but the presentation was worth the price of admission; from the sublime to the silly in one meal. If you've been to a... More

Having been fortunate enough to enjoy dining at some wonderful restaurants including 1,2 and 3 Mitchelin star, we decided to follow up a recommendation to dine here. My goodness what a good decision that was. It is hard to categorise the experience. It was certainly not just a meal but so much more. It was fine dining and theatre wrapped... More

The medieval hill top village of Ainsa is definitely worth a visit and so is the Calliso restaurant. We have traveled extensively and have had some memorable meals. This one is high on our list. We were a group of six and thoroughly enjoyed our experience. We took the 12 course menu 'Earth', each one a surprise that made our... More

I should say first that we have visited this restaurant before and thought it was fun and good quality food. However, in an effort to repeat the previous experience we visited yesterday for lunch having made a reservation on the phone 2 days earlier for our family of 7. The fact that they had lost our reservation was massively disappointing,... More

I was delighted with the food and originality of its dishes and presentation. I was spending my holidays in France and my friends insisted to go to Spain to eat at Callizo, now I do not regret it and I strongly recommend it. The menu???? Ask for the surprise menu, you will love it!!!!
