I'm very surprised by the previous review as our meal this evening was faultless as was the service. This was our first visit as we hadn't previously realised what a beautiful courtyard they had at the back of the restuarant. My husband chose 'amazing stew in old wine' (lovely title) but was a little taken aback when the waitress mentioned that it was actually braised cheek which neither of us had had before. But he'd no sooner said this than the waitress dashed off and came back with a small sample for him to taste (delicious) which is not something which many restaurants would bother to do.

We shall be back there before we go home especially as their menu is a little different from what's on offer elsewhere in the village.

On high hopes from the reviews written we went to Sali on our last night in Calella. On arrival were delighted with the lovely courtyard surroundings and the staff were attentive at first. Menu seemed to be a bit different from the usual in Calella and we were really looking forward to a nice last meal however as soon as the food started to arrive we realised it was just yet another overpriced mediocre restaurant which is typical of this area. Food was totally uninspiring, flavourless, frozen chips etc etc. Curry was the best bit but nothing special. Gazpacho was nice also but yet again nothing special. The rest was just really poor. Could cook it at home with your eyes closed. Very disappointing indeed and not cheap. Will stick with Xado!

You'd pass Sali from the outside, but it's a hidden gem. A beautiful courtyard with tables outdoors and indoors. The menu was varied, EVEN FOR VEGETARIANS!!! We ate the aubergine and Parmesan starter (delicious) and pastas for main courses (excellent). Not cheap, but no dearer than not so good restaurants on the sea front. We wish we'd found Sali earlier on our trip.

We hadn't visited Calella for a number of years. The Sali was a favourite with the kids back then for good pizza and the table football! This year we returned and ate at the Sali on two occasions . It had moved upmarket with good food, well presented and a range of dishes from an excellent curry through pizza or fish to a great steak.
It is not cheap but the every popular courtyard and excellent service along with the well cooked food made the experience worthwhile.
Reservations were necessary.

When you first look inside this restaurant it doesn't look very other than a normal modern restaurant. But once you go up the stairs that are in the back you will be on the cutest little courtyard with pretty flowers and trees hanging over it. The have a various menu, but the Pizza Sali is one of the most delicious pizza's I've ever tasted. Definitely worth a visit! Don't forget to make a reservation, cause it's very busy!
