Wish we found this place sooner!

Visited here on the last night of our holiday, kind of glad we found it so late as the food was brilliant so we probably would have been there every night! Big portions and friendly staff. Well worth a visit!

Soup was slow to arrive and when it came it was actually boiling ! Had to put chilled water in it before it could be eaten. Paella was not very flavoursome, and lacked variety in its ingredients and decoration. Wine however was first class.

We enjoyed our meal, there was a good choice available and the meals were well cooked and presented. Staff were friendly and helpful, there was nothing to find fault with. We also visited just for a drink and again staff were lovely.

Always give this restaurant a try when in CP but can't say have ever had a really good meal. Pity because we like the position in a nice sheltered spot, expecially on cooler nights and staff friendly enough. Not expensive but was not offered the all inclusive meal.? Must say, on the positive side, I had the best Mussells Marinera... More

We did not realise there was an all-inclusive menu until we were leaving as this was not offered to us. The paella was packet mix, the spaghetti bolognese tasted of nothing (Heinz from a tin would have been better), the curry was bland need I go on. There is no wonder that Raphael in Spar is giving away 10% discount... More

Me and my partner were staying all inclusive down the road from this restaurant and thought we would try it one day for lunch. The restaurant looks clean and tables are well presented. Me and my partner enjoyed sitting outside and enjoying the sunshine. We ordered burgers, both a cheese burger and a full works burger (cheese, bacon, egg etc).We... More

What can I say, I think I was served one of the worst meals ever here during our holiday. I had tried this restaurant 5 years ago and it was AWFUL. I thought we'd give it another go as the entertainment is excellent and I'd had a reasonably good pasta dish here in June. Diners beware, I asked if Cava... More

This is really the hub of Cala'porter for both food, the bar and entertainment. Attentive staff in the restaurant, crazy staff in the bar who are fun and an entertainment place in the back, spent several evenings, days and had breakfast here-it was consistently good.
