Park is a health and safety nightmare!

If the park was fixed then this would be 5 stars! The park is a health and safety disaster... The see saw is a log with a spring and the slide and swings have nails sticking out of them! A family friend has a 2 year old daughter who got of the see saw for it to hit her in... read more

We had high expectations after being greeted by the host whilst looking at the menu. She enthused about the vegetarian options, we are a family of four veggies, so we happily took her at her word. A warm August evening meant we could sit under the stars and relax with beers and for the children non alcoholic fruity cocktails which... More

Lovely setting and atmosphere, but food was disappointing. Paella was very bland and did not meet my expectations of a traditional Spanish Paella. Other two dishes of swordfish and munkfish were average. Staff friendly but poor knowledge of extra dietry needs when enquiring of ingredients in dishes.

They have such a big menu to choose from which is so nice however being veggie is hard in foreign countries! But the waitress stopped us outside and went through the whole menu showing me what I could swap to make it veggie and even make me my own meals if I preferred that! Was so lovely of her to... More

A very pleasant atmosphere in this restaurant. The dancer made it very special too. Good food and good service. The staff were very welcoming and we intend to go back here next year...

Tasty food and inexpensive, especially with the current exchange rate. Friendly, cheerful and helpful staff but once your plates are taken away the waiters seem to be elusive and you wait for ages to be approached for coffee etc. This happened this year and last too. If they improve this part, we will return.

We had a lovely meal here great paella my dad had a curry which apparently was yummy! My brother had a chicken curry which was very very good and me and my mum shared a delicious paella. Lovely deserts and great service. We watched flamenco dancing as well which was really entertaining. Would recommend to anyone! 👍🏻

Came as had a voucher, service was so slow left for long periods of time with no food or drinks. When the food did come however it was of a high standard but the slow service took the shine from this restaurant which is such a shame as the food was great. Would I return? Probably not. Most expensive meal... More

This was the most expensive meal we had in cala en porter yet not the best quality. They forgot some of our order, the cocktails didn't seem to have any alcohol in them, the pizzas were just a lake of cheese and the portions were small. A bit disappointing as it looks lovely from the road.
