Lovey welcoming people and the food is also amazing. Have been coming to Isla Plana for the last 6 years and always try and make a point of eating here. Such amazing value for money and high quality food. Highly recommend.

Lunch for €9.95 per person includes 4 courses, coffee and a bottle of wine per couple! Really, get a grip anyone whinging, it was not a la carte, it didn't pretend to be but for this price it was exceptional value for money. Service efficient and friendly by the couple who own it. We had Gazpacho, onion soup, green beans... More

Our second visit to La Chara - never disappointed with this restaurant without pretension. Simple pleasures, good service, great food and a bill that won't break the bank. Long live La Chara!

Not been for a while. Went to see if it had improved from last time. Not really. Over boiled veg. Overlooked thin fish and meat. Sweets were nice. At least they are not drowning everything in sauce anymore! The maison across the road is better.

Mui bien!! Last night was my 3rd visit to La Chara and loved it just as much as I did the first time. The little restaurant has a wide variety of dishes to choose from, with a great set menu and lovely menu del dia (if you're visiting at lunch). When visiting this time I had a beautifully fresh and... More

The choice on the a la carte menu or even from the special menu just can't be beaten anywhere. We have never had a substandard meal and the wine is excellent as well. Where a normal choice venue or for a special celebration the owners couldn't do more to make it memorable. Don't be put off by its position near... More

We had not been at La Chara for over a year as the last visit was a bit disappointing BUT now they're back on form. Great choices available through the four courses and Ali Oli to dip whilst you are choosing. All our meals arrived together, hot stuff was Hot and cold stuff was Cold, might sound obvious but ....

Have been here twice in a week (Isla plana doesn't have too much choice.). However, we've found this restaurant to be great-excellent choice on both the menu del dia and on the regular menu. Steaks good, paella excellent (we had both fish and chicken versions) and prices very reasonable.
