Best on Playa Blanca

This place is really the top restaurant of Playa Blanca. Wonderful starters (best jamon I had on the island), and the seabass cooked in salt is to die for. It's small, cozy and intimate, but if you get a windowside table you have a wonderful view towards the sea. The service is polite and friendly... read more

Apart from the fact that the place itself its not much bigger than a closet, the prices are extremely high and the quantitys they serve of what you ask for are ridiculous ... never again!

Terrific restaurant with wonderful views over the quaint harbour. Flambe service although not necessarily near the table you are dining at! Very good steaks - and starters not so good desserts. Excellent Service.

We eat here often when in Playa Blanca and first of all it is a cut above most of the restaurants. Lovely place inside with a window seat if you book early. Staff are courteous and attentive but it is the food we go back for. We have been twice this holiday already but have four meals reserved. For us... More

We dined with our 3 young kids who thankfully all love good food so the usual children's menu offered was returned to the waiter promptly! We ordered some starters from the sharing menu presented - Iberian Ham ( outstanding) calamari ( now a kids favourite ) and some ham croquettes ( which were lacking in something ) The service was...

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!
