Excellent food and service

Excellent food and service. The waiters were friendly and we didn't wait long for our meals. Food was excellent. We visited three times in 8 days.

Atmosphere great, plenty of spaces between tables - you must book. Good local food. The roast lamb and the suckling pig are a must. Great to be offered fresh veg instead of chips.

This was my favourite this year. Lovely staff, recognise you on second visit. Paella very nice and plentiful. Pork medallions delicious. Went for Dinner twice in the fortnight. Would have gone more but we wanted to try other places. Will put up balloons if you tell them its an occasion.

You may have to wait a while to get a table, but the wait is well worth it. You may want to pre-book to avoid disappointment. The food is of a great standard, the staff a welcoming and attentive.

A lovely meal in a great setting. Worth paying that little bit extra for on a special occasion. Recommend the spit roast chicken and ribs.

Came here as a family group on the first night and didn't go back. Not because the food was bad but we just felt a very rushed by the waiting staff. Food was good though and if you're happy to go in and out within about an hour or so then sure you'll find it a pleasant experience

Been before but first time this year and it did us proud. Nicely appointed terrace, friendly efficient staff and above all good food. Very busy pre book a table as yet again there were many who were disappointed in being turned away.

We went straight from the beach, we had a wonderfull day in Cala en porter, eating here was the perfect end of a lovely day. We got a table on the balcony, had this wonderfull and tasty paella, kids menu were ok as well. Friendly staff and fast service. Would recommend it for sure.

Very good plentiful meals. Garlic breads are enormous, one would suffice for two. A bit loud when live music is on and the night we went waiters were rushed has one had to go to hospital with a cut finger. Very popular with the Brits, always full when passing in car.

Our last night in Cala en porter and we booked el pulpo to ensure we got a good table outside Again on the higher end of the price spectrum, but worth it; good service, very good paella, and all in all a great recommendation
