Worth a couple of visits

Good dining experience and did a few of my favourite dishes. The duck in fig jus was super. It was cooked the way I like it and fell easily off the bone. My wife had a large seafood combination as a main course and there was so much I was forced to help her out.

Welcomed back to sample some of the best in Playa Blanca. Food and service excellent and the location could not be better. We'll be returning again as we rate La Chalanita one of the best on the island.

My wife and i visited for our wedding anniversary. We ordered lobster hotpot and this was fantastic. The location, having read tripadvisor we knew to book a window table and the views were great. The aromas from the food being served were soooo good. Infact we were so happy we returned again later in our holiday.

These guys work hard to give outstanding food and dining experience, Real quality food, great location especially if you get a window table, advise you to book to guarantee. Order a flambee main or dessert to be treated to your meal being cooked in front of you!

Having been here a few times before we were excited for our visit this evening having last been in playa blanca over 2 years ago. On this occasion the food was a little off what I remembered although still good. The service however was shocking, impersonal, rushed and rather rude at times. We chose to finish our meal after the... More

We visited La Chalanita late-ish one night for dinner and were seated next to a window upstairs with a stunning view to enjoy. The restaurant was quiet, however this may have been as we were upstairs - it was no problem at all though. Our food was delicious and served promptly but not hurriedly. The wine was also lovely. We... More

The food was of a good standard although not spectacular. We were probably comparing to eating at Sebastyan's the previous night. Service was very cool and not particularly welcoming, we felt quite rushed and desserts arrived ten minutes apart. It was also our most expensive meal of the week so probably wouldn't return.
