“A good restauant but overrated generally”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

Cala is cliche for a romantic dinner. The ocean-side seating is scenic, romantic and the service is excellent. But there is nothing really special about Cala. It could be any romantic restaurant in any city in the world. The seafood is good but there are better, the steaks are good, but there are better. So you pay a lot to sit by the window and look out at the sea and have your picture taken with your date. If a date asks you Cala for her birthday. You and have a decent evening, but she offers to let you chose, there are better options.

“NOT GAY FRIENDLY”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

Food was great... however, refused to give a rose and take our photo on Valentines Day. Gays stay far, far away from this discriminatory restaurant.

“Ahhhh Cala....”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

Once again Cala provided us with a memorable cuisine experience. Our super Star server Luis sugested new dishes and they were all delicious. Best restaurant in Lima.
Two great 4 hour lunches at Cala, can't wait to go back for more.
