Usually cycle along the paseo and stop for a coffee This place is usually very busy and hard to get a seat But we were lucky so noticed empty seats and stopped for coffee Good cup of coffee and little home made biscuits on the side Great spot on the beach and good for people watching

This is one of our favourite places to eat in La Cala. We ate here about 3 times in our two weeks in Spain over Christmas and everything we had was gorgeous from the grilled peppers and salads to the beautiful paella and the grilled squid. What better way to spend Christmas day than walking down the beach and then... More

we have passed this place several times and always looked busy, so we see that as a good sign, boy we were wrong. Went in, took an age for the grumpy waitress to come over and take our order. The food was the worst we've tasted since moving to Spain, very bland and not very well presented either. Definitely be... More

I always feel that one important quality of a Restaurant is based on their Toilets. Well, the Toilets at this place leave a lot to be desired, or not!!!! They are absolutely filthy and something needs to be done about them. All other Restaurants in the area have a sheet on display to check when the place was checked out... More

This is a typical Spanish beach restaurant with no surprises. But it offers a great setting actually on the beach and is perfect to stop by for a beer or sangria, while strollingbalongbthe Senda Litoral.

We have been visiting this beach restaurant for a good few years now. The food is always excellent and the staff friendly. This is not 'posh dining' but good old fashioned value for money. Reuben and his team are a delight even in adversity, I look forward to returning.

I really love this place. Great service, really good food and in a stunning location. I went back after nearly four years since being there and Ruben recognised and greeted me before I had got in the door. The night I went in was the day after they had been flooded out with a storm but you wouldn't have known.... More
