We stayed in Isla Planna last year and found this to be our favourite by some way. This year we are in Puerto mazarron and even though there is a huge choice nearby we took the time to visit again and I am pleased to say it did not dissapoint! Also even in the evening the menu for 21 euros... More

We visited this restaurant twice in mid July and had two excellent meals. I was surprised to see so many mixed reviews. Our experiences were excellent for both food and service. On both occasions we struggled to manage the quantities provided and the quality was high. My favourite was a seafood paella which was fully loaded with top quality goodies.... More

Have visited this restaurant twice recently for Menu Del Dia, the food was of excellent quality and the choice was good. The service was friendly and attentive without the staff hovering, the timing of the courses was good so that you did not feel rushed to finish your course. It is situated on a busy road so if possible try... More

I hate to write a bad review but having tried this restaurant on no less that 3 occasions (just to give it the benefit of the doubt) I have no choice! We visit Isla Plana twice a year and there are not that many places to eat in walking distance so I like to give places a chance even if... More

Just returned from a Menu del dia at the La Chara. I hadnt visited the restaurant for several years and was not disappointed. I took 2 friends with me and they were both impressed. Tablecloths and napkins were linen, not paper, service was superb and menu nicely varied. My friend had paella for one of his courses and it was... More

My wife and I have been meaning to visit this restaurant for some time, but something has always happened to stop us. So when friends who were taking pity on me for being on my own at the moment suggested a visit, I was delighted. Their Menu del Dia is, in my view, a little more upmarket than most but,... More

We had lunch here and chose to order from the menu. Paella appeared very quickly and was dry and lacked flavor. I had gratin of cod. Piece of cod with cheese on top. Very unpleasant, dry and tasteless. As I hadn't been able to eat the main course I ordered arroz con leche. Swiftly brought to the table, small portion... More

We went to this restaurant, having seen an advert for it in a local magazine. We were a little unsure prior to going, having read a Spanish review on this website about there being cockroaches. However, for the four course advertised 9€00 menu del día we thought that we would try it for ourselves before jumping to any conclusions. When... More
