We have been here a few years ago and were really disappointed so took a while to return. Initially disappointed to find they had no potatoes left however realised they were to close for the season that evening so can understand this. The lamb was fantastic and the ribs very good so we will be back again next season!

We ate here twice during our recent visit to Cala and enjoyed good food both times, with friendly prompt service. The paella was especially good. Thanks guys!

Read the menu and looked as though there would be new flavours to try. My husband tried the duck which arrived lukewarm with spoonfuls of jam on the side. My fish was acceptable. The meal did not justify the cost as we could have eaten elsewhere twice and had better food.

Well worth a visit for a reasonable choice at reasonable prices, some of the starters here were very good as were the main meals, desserts could be a little better

Fantastic lamb, fish and stroganoff. Wish we had tried it last time we stayed here. Won't miss it next time.
