This restaurant is very easy to pass by walking the beach promenade of Puerto de Mogan. But that would be a shame. Come on Sunday and you shall be lucky to get a table because of all the locals having their paella. And where the locals go you better go too. We have had paella twice and tapas once and... More

Waitress was fine. The rice was good (paella) but the rest of the food was a poor quality. Restaurant is long and narrow, waiters running around, too noisy. Beverage rates are way too expensive (for example 3.75€ for one Coke) and bread was also included in the bill when we didn't even ask for it. Definetely, we would NOT recommend... More

We wanted to get a great Spanish paella and we asked Google + TripAdvisor to guide us and El Calderon came up. We found the restaurant located on the beach front in the nice city of Puerto Mogan. Unfortunately we were somewhat disappointed by the paella. It was a huge and good looking pan but the mussels, clams and scrimps... More

Very nice restaurant on the beach front. It's popular for the paella but we were there for lunch and had probably the best salad I've ever had. Service is also good and prices are normal.

After a long day travelling we ate here first night of our stay. Service was prompt and attentive. We ordered two childrens meals and then wife & I plus our eldest shared a fantastic paella. Its a great spot and the food is good (this was our second visit) but for some reason often seems to be overlooked in favour... More

The staff were great, very accommodating and we're happy to make changes to the order. Portions were a decent size and the food arrived quickly, was tasty and reasonably priced. If your on the area try this restaurant.
