Had catch of the day - sea bass - beautiful Calamari is some of the best I've ever had with a very light and crispy batter. Garlic prawns - very good Tuna salad fresh and flavoursome

We've just had lunch at this place and we really enjoyed it. It's a beach restaurant with very fresh fish. They really know how to cook it.

Visited twice in a week for lunch. Found food freshly cooked & delicious especially fish of the day staff friendly & coped well with my lack of Spanish! Really relaxed atmosphere and a great view over the bay

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. :)

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

Having been to many beach bars this is certainly in my top 10 - highly recommend the garlic prawns and fresh fish. Looks can be deceiving!!
