“Beautiful Restaurant Excellent Food Friendly Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

This was our first visit to La Canela after being in La Manga for years and we have been missing out. The restaurant is in the most beautiful surroundings by a riding stable where you can pop in and admire the horses with the kids. The food was excellent without a doubt the best food we have ever had in La Manga and the staff were so friendly and helpful recommending delicious wines etc. We had the prawn and crab cocktail which was full of big prawns and lots of crab meat and the pork with brandy sauce and garlic mash was so tender and perfectly cooked. The was also a wide range of food for the kids and good portions. My only disappointment is that I didn't try the pudding but I plan to go back in a few days. A truly authentic spanish restaurant so worth going out of La Manga resort for.

“Why is this so popular?”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

A strange interior which ranges from dusty/dirty high level barn ceilings and bottles to tables that are just about fit for purpose. The food is nothing exceptional and service was over friendly when it did arrive. There are much much better restaurants around.

“Not bad”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

Best to go here in winter as the food can be heavy. its a nice and up market place - with prices to match. To be honest - the Hotel Principe Phillipe restaurant is rather better and within the resort of La Manga Golf. The fish offering is not as good as La Tana or Miramar in Cabo de Palos. Its good for meat though

“Excellent, as usual”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2012

We have eaten at Canela quite a few times over the last few years and its always excellent. Israel is a great host with a great sense of humour. The food is delicious - its one of the only places we manage 3 courses as we don't want to miss out on the puddings.

We have taken friends who are always impressed and the friends we took this week are already saying they will be back with their family.

I recommend booking especially in the high season & school holidays.

“Fantastic Restaurant don't miss it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2012

This is a brilliant restaurant set amongst stables just off the La Manga complex. The food is fantastic as are the wines. Prices are ok. The choice of food is not massive but the quality is really good espcially the steaks.
