Visited twice for lunch in last week. Both really enjoyable. Very relaxing location on the beach with the sound of the Atlantic ocean. Very tasty food and friendly service. Definitely worth a visit.

The real Spanish deal: delicious calamares with garlic yoghurt dip and fresh grilled sea bass. And super friendly lady of the house with charming smile. :)

Popped in for a quick drink on our way back to the hotel & stayed for a few hours :-) relaxed isn't the word, & great service while listening to the waves crash onto the sea shore

We walked down the cliff walk from the HPB property in Playa Santiago and visited La Chalana which is down by the stony beach. We sat down on the plastic chairs overlooking the sea for a drink and were welcomed by a very nice man who asked if we would like some food? He said the sea bass was good... More

Fresh fish, garlic prawns, beer and wine by the sea. As always a lovely lunch freshly cooked and friendly staff. We will be back soon. Be prepared to wait for a table its worth it.

We only had drinks here. It's on the sea front but it's not that pretty. Ok for drinks but I'm not tempted to eat here. I never like it when smokers sit next to you and light up. The children get really annoyed.
