We've been coming back here for years and returned again this August for another great meal enjoyed by our family. Such a great location and I can't fault the Food or service. It's on our must visit list for each year. You can sit outside in the shade and take in the views of the harbour, or go inside and... More

La Clota is a charming little restaurant situated right on the harbour front with great views across the bay. We were visiting as a very large party for a family birthday and the restaurant and staff were My personal highlight were the mussels in a tomato sauce. These were large, fresh and delicious and I could have eaten all of... 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.

I will start by saying that I first came to La Clota with my Grandfather in the 1980's and as a child recall how much I loved the place : it was SO fancy and such a treat to be taken out to dinner and spoilt. My enduring love affair with Creme Caramel started in this very place !! So... More

We had a lovely dinner on a warm Saterday night with the evening sun from the harbor making the view very romantic. The service was very pleasant with an excellent understanding of English. The seafood offered was of excellent quality and the suggested wine to go with it was very tasteful. A great place to have nice dinner, surely one... More

La Clota has the best location of any restaurant I know, and quality to match. I've read a couple of negative Tripadvisor reviews, but I don't recognise the place those people describe and in my opinion they should have their teeth removed before they damage the reputations of any more establishments. I've been a client there for 25 years, and... More

Wonderful family, food, staff, view and service. After 25 years it's still my favourite restaurant to go to. If you're in L'Escala try to go there, especially for the menu del dia.

My husband and I spent a lovely evening there a couple of weeks ago. The service was good and the food diveine. I have had a number of Paella, but this was probably one of the best. And the Sangria, was nothing sort of divine, not bitter or over powering like you generally find. The view of the harbour at... More

We have been here several times. The quality of the food is highly variable.The quality of the steak leaves much to be desired even when it has been returned once and replaced. Unfortunately it is living off its past reputation , very dated and food not well presented and can be very pricey. The owners dont seem interested in complaints
