Service was terrible, food average and over priced. Arrogant disinterested staff. We were given a table on the balcony, just out of the reach of the waiters who were more concerned with the groups of guests who were in the main thoroughfare who arrived after us. We waited 1/2 hour to get drinks and had to ask twice if we... More

Loved it here.The food was generally good, quick, friendly service and a nice vibe. The setting is also great and we enjoyed several evenings here and will look forward to going back.

We ate here late one evening last week and were neither wowed or disappointed. My wife and I shared a chicken and vegetable paella and while it was a decent meal, it didn't bear much resemblance to real paella - more a chicken pilaf with frozen veg thrown in (broccoli.?!). There was none of that just cooked feel to it... More

Been to cala n porter 4 times never tries this restaurant. Every time we went passed fought wow always full, loads of people. So the food must be great. Not too us no. I felt that it was lacking in other foods. Maybe a bit more choice rather than too much English foods.

Nothing to dislike. We sat outside and the food was great. Two of us had paella, the rest of the meals were equally as good.

I appreciate this is based on my taste but the seared pear and Roqufort cheese salad was delicious! Restaurant was empty when we went in for lunch, but I have no idea why. Service was good and lovely seated outside.

Big mistake we went this year after my granddaughter declared it he favourite and it was worth the wait. A little but more expensive than many... More

We visited El Pulpo several times for dinner whilst in Cala En Porter and each time the food and service was excellent. Steaks were cooked perfectly, swordfish with garlic is simply delicious and the sea-food paella is just fabulous as you can see from other reviewers pictures and the pork medallions are gorgeous ...the list goes on !! The staff... More

We have been to Cala'n Porter 4 times and each year we have eaten in El Pulpo. El Pulpo is the family's favourite restaurant and we eat here every third or fourth night over a 3 week period. We have tried quite a few choices off the menu over the years and it has all been very good. My husband... More
