Great food and views

La Clota is a beautifully located restaurant which looks out onto the Bay of Roses in the marina area of the town. Food is generally of a very high quality and there is an excellent wine list. It is certainly possible to eat cheaper in l’Escala but La Clota is worth considering if you wish to... read more

We stayed in L'Escala as an extended family in the residential area. La Clota was a reasonable walk in the harbour area. As there was a large group we booked. We all sat together outside. It is an excellent location overlooking the harbourside and can also be well protected if the weather isn't kind. The menu offers a good selection... More

We sat outside, delightful staff, great service. I would recommend the muscles, delicious . My husband ordered the Monkfish, we didn't expect it to come whole...it looked amazing, the waiter showed my husband the cheek of the fish, a delicacy which he enjoyed. The wine was delicious and very good value. Most of the customers when we visited at lunchtime... More

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.

The view across the port as sun goes down just adds to this special... More

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

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
