We loved the Tapas in Calau. The variety of the dishes was good and the taste great. Don't eat to much in a short time because the vaitors are always coming with new amazing dishes.

I visited Calau on holiday last year and was so impressed we went twice this time. It is very popular and sometimes you ma have to queue as there is no booking system but the staff will take your name and call you when a table is available. Once inside there is a wide selection of tapas and pinchos laid out along the bar, hot tapas such as patats bravas, calamari and croquettes can be ordered and the staff bring other hot snacks around the bar. Prices range from 1.5 euros to 3.5 euros a dish and are the same as last year. Highlights included rabbit, octopus salad, black pudding and a very drinkable bottle of cava at only 10 euros.

We were lucky and got a table outside on the spot at around 7pm on a Tuesday, others were waiting 10-20 mins for a seat - but if you have to ... do it.

Great food and good service - order your drinks and head to the bar area, grab your plate and choose your dishes from whatever's on display.you can also order bigger meals from the blackboard menu.

In the meanwhile, the waiters wander around with fantastic hot tapas.

Just hang on to your cocktail sticks as that's how they tot up the bill.

Really worth a visit, glad we've gone early in the holiday so we can go back.

I've always found it frustrating that it's easier to get good Tapas in the UK than in Calella. This lovely tapas bar sorts that out superbly. Just go and you won't be disappointed but I'll repeat some of the other reviewer's advice to just order some of the hot tapas off the board and then wait for the other dishes as they come around every 5-10 minutes.

This is a wonderful tapas experience. The tapas are beautiful, creatively prepared and extremely delicious. Lots of choices with fresh local produce and seafood. The staff is very friendly and patiently explained everything to us. My experience here set the tapas standard for the rest of the trip. This is definitely worth going out of your way to experience.
