“A wonderful find of the main tourist track”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2014

We stayed at the Buensol apartments in Toremolinos last week and on my mother in laws recommendation , decided to try Caliu ...it was nothing short of wonderful ...our waiter was excellent and recommended a beautiful wine to accompany our meal ...we were not rushed and were given a complimentary starter and also liqueurs and chocolates at the end of the meal as well. We went for the €15 per head set menu and could highly recommend it ...the quality of the cooking was superb and it was so lovely , in this day and age to be served with such Grace ...the glasses , cutlery were fine , delicate and just added to the whole experience...the restaurant is small and intimate ...just the kind of find you want for a quiet meal with family and friends in more than pleasant surroundings ...couldn't recommend it highly enough .

“Simply superb”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2014

We stayed in the Montemar area for two weeks and visited this fantastic restaurant several times. The owner Antonio is the perfect host and the value of the 15 euro meal is amazing. The complementary garlic bread and chorizo is delicious. Caliu deserves to be a great success.

“Something different. Good croquetes”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2014

Like to write something about this restaurant. I heard it is pretty new. They have some original plates for ok prices. Some things were a bit blend of taste, but the croquetes were delicious. Friendly service.

“Something different”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2014

When I visited this restaurant last year it had literally just opened and at the time we were the only customers. I did not feel that I should submit a review at that stage as I felt that it would be unfair to do so until the little early day problems had been ironed out. So I went there last week to see how it was faring.

The meal was very good as was the welcome we received. The thing that sets it apart from many other places in the area is the menu and for those looking for something different it is well worth a visit. The cost (we went a la carte) was reasonable given the quality of the food, which being traditional may not be to everybody's taste. If you like adventure give it a ret.

“Faultless”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2014

Perfect food at a great price. My family and I have now gone to Caliu a handful of times and we've never been disappointed. Would recommend the 4 course meal for 15 euros. Antonio always made us feel very welcome and is a true gent. Looking forward to returning soon!
