We had a great time at CHAR. The food was very good and the service impeccable. It was very busy and the service was a little slow (we did not mind) but the staff made up for it and offered graciously desert and extra drinks.

Stumbled on this place when walking around La Caleta and thought we'd try our luck. We were early so we got a spot but best to book! Our first visit was so good we booked another one for 2 days later! The service was just...great and the food was spectacular. The open kitchen was nice to see. Unfortunately our second visit wasn't quite as good as we had some issues with the dishes we ordered but the team sorted everything out to their best ability and were very apologetic. We would definitely still come back! Shame the restaurant doesn't have an outside space though. Dishes: The lamb rack and the tiramisu were to die for!More

We visit all venture restaurants a lot but Char is the top for rib eyes & luismi meats! The staff is very friendly - all is perfect except the price/size of the sides is dissapointing: 5 euro for an extremely small bearnaise- or mushroom saus...cup ... sorry but this should be included in the meat dish price!! But apart from this Char is a marvellous meat restaurantMore

La caleta seems to always have the best restaurants but CHAR has honestly been one of the best. We had dinner here and the atmosphere was great. The service was increadible, thanks to our waiter Marco! All of the food was amazing but especially the...pork cheek and the goya steak... wow! One of the best meals I have had on the island. 100% recommend!More

We had a really enjoyable evening at Char. Relaxed and efficient service and flexible with their menu so we could find something that worked for our kids. I started with a good (and massive aperol). We shared between us the sirloin, fish of the day...(grouper). They were kind enough to slice the steak and cook a few pieces a bit more for our son. The fish and all it came with, was amazing and our favourite. My fussy veggie daughter had skinny fries (or crisps) and a tomato and cucumber salad, which was not on the menu but they were happy to make up. We also had nice little appetisers on the house and lemon sorbet at the end. Sorry these guys have had to close for two weeks. I’m sure they were all disappointed but it was still a lovely vibe here. Would recommendMore

A chance meeting in a hotel the evening before we departed the UK recommended this restaurant to us, and we were not disappointed. Located a short walk from the seafront at La Caleta, this restaurant exudes a great atmosphere which begins at the front door...and extends through the choice of menu which is full of great food which is superbly prepared and served at the table. The staff were friendly and nothing was too much trouble. In fact we ate there twice as we were so pleased with our first experience. We were obviously visiting in Covid times and felt very safe in the restaurant, and hope to return one day.More

This restaurant was recommended to me to two different people within the space of 10 minutes as we weren’t disappointed. They have very professional and well drilled staff and it has the look and feel of a 5 star restaurant. The food is delicious! I...had a steak and my wife had a burger and we both enjoyed our meals immensely.More

Anything goes I think, make sure you get what you order and don’t let them try and upscale, your literally paying for the weight of the additional bone
