This place is a must, if you like good fish and beautiful scenery this is really for you. Book ahead and ask to be seated outside along the edge of the terrace for a view that you can't beat. Huge variety of fresh seafood available - some cooked on the outdoor BBQ/fire pit. Staff are attentive and will help advice your food choices. The only let down is that the desert menu seems nothing special, always go into the restaurant to look at the homemade desserts in their fridges which are a lot better. Non-fish options are limited (but what else could you expect in a fish place?!) and the Sangria is great!
Looking forward to going back!

Friends introduced us to this fantastic restaurant last year ,we have been back several times and have never been disappointed..The views from the terrace are among the best on the coast ,the staff are attentive and the food is terrific . This restaurant is situated on the beach close to the Torrequebrada Hotel in Benalmadena Costa and not Cadiz as stated above .

I have just returned from a weeks holiday. I have previously visited this restaurant a few years ago when I stayed in benalmadena. This time I made a special journey all the way from mijas. The restaurant is in a great location on the seafront, the food is excellent the fish is always caught daily and cooked from fresh. The staff can be quite serious, but dont take it too personally.
I give this restaurant five stars, it's a must!

Quiet off-season evening, dinner for the two of us. Staff nice, food ok, waiting time a bit long. We ordered one of "todays recommendations", expecting it to be more or less in line with the printed menu prices. Well, the surprise of the evening came in the form of the bill - 70 euros for 2 people, small bottle of white wine, no starters, no desserts, no other drinks.... Well our fault, we did not ask the price before we ordered. However, if the "special of the day" costs 2-3 times more than anything on the menu, I guess it would be fair to mention it beforehand. Now, we feel a bit cheated, and we hardly return.

We have visited La Cala at least once each year during our yearly trips to the Sunset Beach Club, just down the beach. The food and service are always good and the staff friendly. Their salads and appetizers are excellent and we have always had a fish course so cannot comment on the meat selections such as steaks. Portions are generous, especially salads and I would recommend sharing salads between 2 people. Good and reasonably priced wine selections. All in all a pleasant dining experience to look forward to again next year.
