Very good spanish place . Good prices, good quality and good service. "Ensalada de la casa" was very good , made from fresh products and good portion. The Sea Bass fish was amazing. My family had paella and they were very happy with it aswell. Will return very soon to try something different. Thank you to the helpful waiter...!

6 of us had lunch in this oldy worldy restaurant! Satisfied customers all round... The salade verde is a Spanish classic, fresh, delicious and simply made. I had the Paella which, I said at the time and stand by... was probably the best I've ever eaten! I'll be back...

This place has become the traditional place for our Last supper when I've been visiting my friends in Spain. The owner is grumpy but it adds to the entertainment, the staff are great. Menu del dia is a winner, boqueronies and calamari exceptional and the best arroza banda ever. Disappointed to miss out on the crema catalan, they'd just sold... More

Unfriendly, but obviously after several visits, they are capable of some fantastic food. The sell is bad. The "Menu del dia" is reluctantly given and if you give a free hand to recommendations you will come out with a massive bill!!!! It is such a shame because they could be up with the best. I would eat here every week... More

Eventually a table was found for us, and I had to wait 35 minutes before a drink was even offered to us. The service was extremely bad and we had to ask several times... More

If you like true Spanish cuisine then visit La Caldera! We had lunch here today and had menu del dia. There were three of us in the party and we had for starters mussels, calamari and a salad. This was followed by paella and crema catalana. All the food was well prepared and came in extremely large portions. The food... More
