Fine, but don't go here especially for gluten free!

My husband said his bacon cheese burger was very delicious and our friend who had the cheeseburger said it was ok; I went here because it was recommended on a gluten free website and I thought they would be a bit more gluten-free friendly. However they didn't particularly cater for GF any more... read more

Les burgers étaient assez mauvais... Et le service - eh - on a demandé qq choses spécifiques et personne n'as pas reçu ce qu'elle avait demandé. The food was not good at all.. And we had asked to change some things (like add cheese or to not give fries) and none of us got what he'd asked.

Good price quality. Very nice filet. A little bit too much fat during cooking. Very friendly service and fast. We had also special request deviating from menu and was no problem to make us happy. Good place for lunch.

My wife and I stopped by this place for dinner since they advertised "gluten free" and "lactose free" options. Our server understood exactly what we needed when we told her about our allergies. The burgers were quite good (I had the KingKong) as well as the local beer on tap. Enjoy! -- Visited August 2nd, 2015 --

Le Calamar has a short menu, offering a few different burgers, and usually 2-3 daily specials. It is usually quite good food, although sometimes it has felt a bit expensive for the value. Considering the burger, the meat and the bread are good but the fries are very thin and often burned... I guess the place is ok if you... More

By "reputation" they are supposed to have good burgers. Some people end up here when Inglewood (5 min walk away) is full - and I feel sorry for them. The burger cost the same but is not even half as tasty unfortunately. Also, the drinks are overpriced for what it is and the place seems to live on expats (who... More

It's not rare to be disappointed by a restaurant, but it's especially galling when the restaurant serves basic food like hamburgers and pasta carbonara. The service is fine, and the location makes it a popular stop for locals and tourists, but the food is unfortunately below par. One gets the impression that the chef (or cook) has simply run out...
