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

visited twice last week as it was our local for the holiday, and we'd been recommended the place, and the location was nice. But, the service was rude and blunt, although they seemed very friendly with regulars. The food was bland, and whilst the set meal deal was good value and included a bottle of wine, the food wasnt good... More

We went for a meal here on a recommendation from some locals. Nothing particularly special about the place. The food was ok and we had the opportunity to return and didn't. We sat outside and the service was ok, I ordered a salad to start which was very plain. we then both ordered the oven roasted lamb shank, mine was... More
