Don't want to sound mean, as La Vieja has always had the tag of 'best restaurant' in La Caleta... but in 5 years of visiting, we've never been as it also had a reputation of being expensive. We tried it this visit, and yes the gin and tonic was huge, the food beautiful, but I'm sorry - it cannot justify... More

Wonderful location overseeing the bay at La Caleta. The food is wonderful, without a doubt; but it's expensive for what you get - it would be a special occasion dinner for us. Gin and tonic in a fishbowl!

We remembered this from last year. We booked for a Saturday night and it was very busy. The starter and the fish main course were excellent but after the main course it took ages to order the dessert, bring the dessert and then the bill. We had a very noisy Spanish group on the next table and, when the heaters... More

We went here after reading some good reviews on TA. It was an early dinner as we have a two year old. There were only three tables in use but that's the time I suppose? We were served quickly and efficiently and the food came out on time. It was hot and looked appetizing. My wife and I had fish... More

Wife and I arrived here by chance. With no booking in what looked liked a busy night a smart looking host sat us down to a great terrace table overlooking the sea. Had a simple paella which was served by the side of the table and exceptionally good. I can eat a lot but for the first time had to... More

Quite incredible the similarity to another reviewers experience, we booked by phone which was a struggle as the person had not even a basic command of English. Subsequently no booking was found on arrival but a table was found. The mixed seafood grill was not properly cooked, the whole time we were made to feel like an inconvenience, and the... More
