“Best paella in caleta”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012

How this restaurant is so low in the ratings, god knows!, unfortunately it is hidden away.

Myself and the family fancied a fresh paella and not made from a packet or microwaved. This restaurant had been recommended.

The ambience is plain, but rustic and gives the feel of a Spanish farm kitchen/dinner room with Spanish music in the background.. we ordered a paella for 3, the waiter was honest and informed us that a paella for 2 would suffice. We ordered a kids size spaghetti bolognese for my little boy. When the paella came out it was huge, we didn't finish it.
We ordered 2 rounds of drinks and the bill came to 22 euros, bargain.
Would definetly recommend

“A tapas bar that Caleta was needing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2012 via mobile

We booked a table in the formal restaurant on St Valentines night & had a wonderful meal with great professional service & value. We were so pleased we decided to go the following day to the tapas bar, adjoining the restaurant. We had menu of the day which was of a very high standard in presentation, service & quality of food. As we live in Caleta from November to April,we look forward to many more enjoyable visits & highly recommend both restaurants.

“Finally a typical spanish restaurant !!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2012

Amazing food and great service!! If you are looking for a typical Spanish restaurant this is it. It's recently opened thats why we never knew of it before, as we visit the island regularly. Its located under the San Jorge hotel that runs along the sea front. You can either have tapas of the menu of the day. Both our delicious. Plenty of space outside for the children to run around. The owners also have the formal restaurant just tucked round the corner, La Barca del Pescador. Great outside chill out terrace, little breezy (defiantly need when warm though) but beautiful views over the sea. Highly recommended you won't be disappointed !!

“Menu del dia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2011

Fantastic and very reasonable , A Galician restaurant serving fantastic food .It Looks nothing from the outside, enter inside and you will see a charming Spanish restaurant .
Its worth searching out this great place , its located under the Castillo Siutes before La Barca del Pescador.€8 for a 3 course meal and a drink .Service was very good , friendly and the various dishes were explained in detail .This restaurant should be tried at least once , its not a pie or burger n chips place ,so expect some real Spanish food .
