We went there on recommendation from our hotel receptionst and was pleasently surprised. The place was full and people even waited for tables. Food is simple, but well tasting. You dont get e.g. decorations, just what you order which in turn is well made. House wine is very reasonably priced and a very good try. try the fried anchovies as... More

One of the owners of Hostal Marina advised us this place when we asked for restaurant with tasty food but not extremely expensive. We ordered salad with goat cheese and cooked rabbit. All was tasty!

We were perhaps a little early for the Spanish. when we arrived our host was very busy and on his own. We were 4 Aussie and only speak english, communication was difficult and the service was slow. We were about to leave when some older children and a lady arrived. The verbal communication didn't improve much but the service was... More

Typical local restaurant with no airs and graces, simple food served quickly by a couple of grandmother types, no fuss or bother and sensible prices. Ideal for a quick lunch or you could stay for ages if you want to sobremessiar.

It would be unfair to say don't go here for gourmet cooking as this is not what this restaurant is about. We'd tried the top rated restaurants in Cadaques and wanted something more down to earth. La Cala is a family run, very friendly and relaxed restaurant with a large range of local seafood, meat and Catalan dishes. You feel... More

We stop by La Cala for lunch. While this is clearly not an upscale restaurant, it serves many typical Spanish dishes. The tortilla was good, the octopus delicious and the water ice cold. On the other end the fried calamari were not that great. Price, including salad, was less than 20 euro per person which was actually great considering quality... More

This restaurant reminds me of the places I used to eat at in Granada in the 1970's. local, well cooked food, served promptly and without ceremony. I enjoyed beautifully presented carpaccio of bacalao and delicious chicken. Red wine at 6 euros a bottle and a good cafe cortado to finish. Great atmosphere too.
