“Great seafood tapa's”
Reviewed August 12, 2013 via mobile

After a long hard day at the beach this is a great place to sample some local seafood. The seafood tapa's for a set 25€ was excellent and very fresh. The calamari and razor clams ere probably the best I have tasted. I can also recommend the local Rosie wine at around 14€.

“Fantastic quality food and service”
Reviewed July 12, 2013 via mobile

The food here was a revelation. St martin has a square with 4 or 5 "restaurants" but they are basically pizza places - a limitless bit unfair but they are bog standard Spanish restaurants. La Cala is totally different, the Prix Fixe menu at 15 euros would have been good value at twice the price. The quality of the cooking and the ingredients was superb. We have just had one of the best lunches I have ever had. It is quieter than the others in the square because they all have outside seating. However it is crowded, noisy and hot at these places and the food is ordinary. La Cala has a little courtyard at the back which is tranquil. I can not recommend this place enough. Had I discovered in on day 1 I would have gone every day. Superb.

“Very good food with staff that go the extra mile!”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

We had the 25€ menu of the day good choice and well prepared food. My wife didn't really like the desert that she ordered and the server insisted she chose another, which she did and enjoyed. Good value, good food, exceptional service.
Note the directions and map on TA are not correct.
