went for dinner, had good table for sunset views. Really friendly service. Ordered seafood paella which we found rather disappointing both in flavour and content. Couple of fish heads, some very small Mussels, couple of crab bones and a prawn. House wine good and reasonably priced.

Great paella - we shared the veggie one which was delicious. Friendly service. We sat outside watching the world go by. A popular restaurant.

Food & service was excellent, we had lunch during a very stormy afternoon. We intended to have a quick bite to eat then go but we ended up having 3 courses which were all delicious. Staff were very friendly & helpful. Nice popular place to eat either daytime or evening. Will definitely go back. Thank you for a delightful lunch

I was not happy with my meal here, stale bread and very hard inedible potatoes. My partner and daughter enjoyed their meal - hence the average rating. Only ate here one time.

Restaurant right in the heart of Cala n porter. Lovely atmosphere, plenty of indoor and outdoor seating. Service fantastic and good choice of food. We had menorcan sea bass, suckling pig, fish kebabs and roast chicken. All loved it. Definitely worth a try.

Have just returned from another superb week in Cala'n Porter,... made even more fantastic as a result of the superb food, service and friendly atmosphere at this wonderful restaurant, Gus and his team consistently provide food, service and ambiance of the highest quality, as well as great value for money. They cannot do enough to cater for each diner's requests,... More

Nice food with a very relaxed setting. Although we all enjoyed the meal the menu is limited and we thought it was a bit on the pricy side.The kids couldn't resist having the half roasted chicken as the smell of it slowly roasting is mouthwatering! On the whole very average compared to other restaurants we have visited.
