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.

We visited the restaurant for the first time last november and had the place to ourselves, We had very personal service. The menu was extensive and very good value. We decided to visit again last week and it was a very different atmosphere. We just about managed to get a table outside and although it was very busy we found... More

We sat outside and enjoyed 4 courses along with chocolate treats mid course. All meant to delight the taste buds and it did. To include fillet steak at this price and a bottle of wine per couple it was a bargain but then we also had deserts and coffee along with a liqueur.....now that's special. Excellent place to eat and... More

Staying at camping up the road and found this when walking searching for food. The food is really good with such friendly staff who made us feel very welcome. Very good value for money if order from the 3 course selection. Would recommend the hot fried custard with ice cream
