Very expensive and over rated, service was awful and the food was over cooked. Worst meal we've ever had in playa Blanca.

Called in without reservation & were managed to be fitted in. Meal was excellent as was service. Great views across the bay. Enjoyed it so much that we did make a reservation for the following night.

La Chalanita Restaurant is located on the seaside of Playa Blanca. The place has a good reputation in Tripadvisor, so we wanted to check it with my wife. We took tuna salad and garlic schrimps as starters. Really tasty and well done. Main course was duck and we both unanimously stated that this is the best duck portion we have... More

Absolutely one of the nice restaurants i PB. We arrived without reservations but got a table. We had the paella and it was good. The service was hurried though. One of the waiters was almost running and you had the feeling they were looking at something else while serving you. Sparkling water was still and the glutenfree bread never arrived,... More

Head and shoulders - the best restaurant in Playa Blanca. Extensive fish and steak menu - and friendly service. This is the restaurant to go to if you want to splash out a bit and have a very special meal. It is more expensive than most other restaurants in Playa Blanca, but still comes in about the same price as... More

We found this lovely restaurant on the last night of our stay. It had been recommended by people we met whilst we were in Playa Blanca. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. Staff were extremely pleasant. If you can get a window seat you have an amazing view of the sea and the ferry coming in and also the... More

In a 4 week holiday we visit this place at least a couple of times. It is not cheap so is saved for special nights. Best to book in advance for a window table overlooking the sea. It's a bit old fashioned in that they cook/flambe many meals at your table but these days that makes a nice change. All... More

This restaurant is warm and friendly with good sea views. It is a favourite here. You will be warmly welcomed and the menu is very special. Some dishes are grilled in the open, others come from the kitchen. All are of the highest quality. We have been many times and are never disappointed. I even got a surprise cake for... More
