Having been a regular visitor over 25 years to La Calla I have never missed an opportunity to visit this restaurant. Whether it is for a delicious evening meal lunch, or a light snack. You cannot beat the food or service.

Try Paella Variados or fresh sardines straight from the BBQ with a ice cold jug of Sangria. Other recommendations are Calamaritos or whole Sea Bass baked in salt. A good selection wines compliments the traditional Spanish cuisine.

With sun loungers and parasols to rent this is a one stop, "best in class" beach experience and don't worry dress code is very casual.

Prices are high but you will get more than value for your money.

Another lovely fish lunch on the beach in La Cala. This chiringuito never fails to impress. We've visited about 6 times each year for the past 3 years and really look forward to going back each time. Full range of food (not just fish if you have someone who's not a fishy person- they do burgers and chicken too) with the most wonderful crusty bread and alioli, salads, sardines grilled on skewers and all the usual fish dishes. This time, 4 of us tried the mixed paella and fish soup for a starter. Both marvelous. Didn't have to order the paella in advance either. How good is it to sit on the beach with wine in a bucket and fresh fish, in the middle of February! And the service is excellent too - they tell you if they think you're ordering too much!!

The Arroyo family own most of the businesses in la Cala, from the ironmongers to the tobacco shop. This is their beachside offering. The location is great and the food fine, without being better than anybody else in the local area. Like almost all Spanish businesses, they have not appeared to do anything to bring in business as the economy has slumped.
