Bar nice

Great location for people watching. Had a few cava's here, but I don't think there was food being served as we were there just at the end of the season. Nice spot overall. Will try the food the next time we are over.

The restaurant is pricier but the paella is to die for. It was really delicious. The staff was really friendly as well.

This site has had restaurants on it for 20 years or so and up until now, none have survived. It must say something for La Placeta that it is still here after 6 or 7 years and still going strong delivering good food and great service. The Bar Habana is just opposite and it's nice to have dinner serenaded by... More

I was lucky that during my research I'd looked up and saved La Placeta on Google Maps! So when we were hungry from hours of snorkelling at Platja Del Canadell, this place was a gentle 5 mins walk from the beach!

We spend our holidays in Calella every year, and we have eaten in some restaurants there. We think this is one of the best in town.

We've been out for dinner with two famiilies. The staff was so nice to the kids, the food was great and the location itself beautiful with nice interior. All in all a place we have to return and can be recommended.

We went in August and found this quiet spot, great atmosphere and really attentive staff. We ordered paella and pan tomaca, the bread was fresh and delicious and the paella completely authentic. Great service, great value too!
