We visited here during our holiday in September 2010. The waitress was excellent in accommodating the pushchair in the small but perfectly formed area. We had a tea-light placed on our table to add to the atmosphere.

My partner ordered steak - cooked well done - and changed the potatoes for chips. I ordered the chicken breast with mushroom sauce and home-made noodles, only to be told there were no home-made noodles! I changed for rice instead.

The meals arrived, mine was lovely. I commented it was the best meal i had had during my holiday. However my partners arrived with potatoes instead of the chips he had asked for. The waitress apologised and brought the chips seperately. His steak however was cooked more medium / rare than well done, but he ate it with a glum face.

We finished our meals and intended on desert. There were us and one other table left in the restaurant. We sat for TWENTY minutes before our plates were cleared. The other waitress cleared three tables around us, washed up and brought bottles up to the bar area. Then came over and asked "finished?!" We asked for the bill, and didn't bother with deserts.

The terrible service let this restaurant down. This heightened our opinion over the under-cooked tseak, which would have been over-looked had the rest of the experience been faultless.

Four of us visited this restaurant at 8.00pm on a Friday evening in November when most tables were occupied, by 8.30pm there was only us and another couple. The food is good with a nice menue choice BUT as with a lot of German restaurants too much salt had been added and with some dishes killed the true flavour.
The service left a lot to be desired with no smiles from the waiter, although he managed to ask if the food was OK when he served the main course. The big problem with this restaurant is the new lady owner/cook who never smiled and could not be bothered to ask the two tables if we enjoyed the meal, we were not offered a dessert and we had to ask for coffee.

This is a German run restaurant with top quality food. The French Onion soup is not to be missed. The steaks are cooked to perfection and the Seafood cassarole is wonderful. It's not cheap, but well worth a meal out during your stay at Calpe.
