This restaurant is situated right on the harbour in l'Escala. This was mu second visit. The staff are all lovely, very friendly and the food is excellent. Probably one of the best steaks I have had anywhere. Good selection on the menu fish and meat I can highly recommend La Clota to anyone in the area.

I am a regular visitor to the area and a trip would not be complete without one visit to La Clota. The owner, Kathy, and her son John, are wonderfully friendly and helpful, and the staff are equally as pleasant. The food is always good - the gazpacho is wonderful, and the saltbaked bream and fideua are personal favourites. There... More

During our recent stay in L'Escala we stopped at La Clota on our morning walk to the harbour. Great coffee, friendly staff and wonderful views. We are looking forward to eating at the restaurant at our next visit.

I was recently in L`Escala on a sailing course and we stayed loger than planned due to strong winds. Fortunately La Clota restaurant was ideally located for us and we were able to enjoy several evenings of excellent meals. The hosts are particularly welcoming and it was clear that many of the customers were regulars (ex-pat and Spanish) or returning... More

Been going here for years. Suddenly looked around and realised all new furniture. Then the food - changes to the menu and very efficient service. This has always been a bit of an ex-pat rendezvous, but it was interesting to see how many Spanish locals are enjoying the food. Excellent menu del dia at 14 euros inc wine coffee and... More

One of the worst meals i ever had, The fish was over cooked and over priced!! Considering where the restaurant is situated i expected a much better and cheaper meal. The service was friendly enough.
