Went into La Cala one evening and spent a nice evening here. Lovely warm welcome from the staff and we were not disappointed with the food either, lamb chops and king prawns served with jacket potatoes, salad and veg - delicious. Bottle of Marquee de Casares completed the meal. It is extremely popular and it is recommend that you make... More

Very nice place still. One of my daughters favourite haunts down here. Once I ask where would you like to eat, her reply is always the same :-) Great gambas pilpil every time and their meat, no matter what you choose is always great! There is a nice touch with your bill, they produce an amazing cream liquor dispensing bottle... More

I don't know how to begin. We were shown a nice table and ordered a good bottle of red wine, a bottle of still water, together with a pork kebab and steak, cooked rare with a baked potato each and a house salad, all to be served at the same time. We speak good Spanish, so it should have been... More

Good afternoon Apologize for the poor service last night, it is true that we were wrong to take your order at the time we realized , I apologize and tell them that they would cook your order correctly , be aware that the pork kebab needs time to substantial cooking exactly 30 minutes. Our team was focused on solving the... More

Based on Trip Advisir recommendations, my wife and I went for dinner and we were not disappointed. We chose prawn dishes for starters and fish options for main courses. It was a lovely meal.

What a cracking little restaurant. Dined here twice last week whilst on holiday. One evening sat outside on the terrace - packed and very cozy in terms of proximity to next table, but not a negative in anyway - added to the ambience actually. Second visit dined inside as it was a chilly evening. Food great on both visits -... More

Never had a bad meal at El Cortijillo, and we have been coming here for years. Christina and her staff are so friendlyand make you very welcome. The fish and steak are both excellent as is the tomato soup and tuna salad.

Had a meal here Wednesday night and can honestly say it was the best meal I'd had in the week I was in La Cala. My wife and I both had Paella and it was to die for. I wish I'd discovered this on our first night rather than the last- but when I'm next in the area it'll be... More
