The best salad in Puerto de Mogan

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.

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

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.

We had: Ham & Cheese Toastie, Spaghetti Bolognese, Cheese Pizza (which was large), Spanish Omelette and all were delicious. Waiters were attentive and service was quick. Very pleasant and relaxing restaurant with lovely views.

You have to have the Paella here! It is an amazing experience and delicious! The waiter presents the large pan and then dishes it up for you. It is an experience in itself to watch!

We had a ginormous paella which was personally served direct from the pan. The guy serving was very good with people and made our meal even more special. We will definitely return again when on the island... Too much food though, we had the rest as a take away which was a tasty lunch the next day!

By far the best restaurant in Puerto de Mogan. Visited first on a Sunday afternoon to meet friends, we had chef's salad, croquettes and a fish and seafood paella, all of it was excellent and also very authentic. We came back the following week a couple of times for lunch and it was consistently very very good. Service was outstanding... More

We have been holidaying in Puerto de Mogan for many years, and this restaurant is top of our list of eateries. In a nutshell, it offers the best value for money of them all. I find it hard to believe it's relatively low ranking - try getting a table on a Sunday afternoon when all the locals are out and... More

Had an excellent meal at this restaurant last night. As a group of 4 we all had different meals & all enjoyed the well cooked food, delivered by friendly waiters. We had a little trouble finding the place - in the middle of a row of restaurants on the beach front- but our perseverance was well rewarded. I highly recommend... More
