“Surprised”
Reviewed July 2, 2014

As a spaniard myself i was very pleasantly surprised with this place. They have a good menu and the food provided (we had 2 fish dishes) was super nice. We will come back and try their paella some other time. Not very often can one find such a nice place at the beach broadwalk!

“Try their 'carpaccio ge gambas'.”
Reviewed May 14, 2014

This starter is like nothing I have ever sampled in England; a carpaccio of shellfish, sliced transparently and dressed with monkfish caviar. Even their rivals say how good it is. It is a gourmet dish well worth the 13 euro price-tag, plus their signature paellas normally for two persons, which they obligingly made for a solo customer... what more can I say?

“Great menu and good seafood choices”
Reviewed May 14, 2014 via mobile

We visited El Caldero for dinner as we had walked past a few times and i was attracted to the good selection of seafood available.

We shared the smoked octopus to start with and my partner had steak and i had duck with mango sauce.

The food was delicious, however there was no vegetables served with it, just potatoes. We found that quite odd that no veg or salad was added. The food was delicious though.

“Excellent paella”
Reviewed May 11, 2014 via mobile

Recommended to try by the receptionist at our resort. Had the paella, it was good but lacking on some if the more expensive items I.e we had two prawns!!! Waiter lacked the personality but service was good. Prices slightly high for the area it was good but could do better.

“Everything cafe de Mogan wants to be”
Reviewed March 22, 2014 via mobile

Take the position and ambiance of cafe de mogan and the chefs, food and waiting staff of El caldero and you have the best restaurant in town. Great foie gras for starter, confit duck was good but a bit too much apricot sauce which is quite sweet and takes over a little and some vegetables wouldn't go a miss but sauté potatoes where okey, the wife's tuna was good too but again just hold back a bit on the sweetness in sauce on the sautéed vegetables.Could not fit in desserts but coffee was nice, all in all great service and very friendly and great menu choice as well,we've been here at least once every time we come to Mogan and always enjoy it and reasonable prices too. Good salad choices, risottos and piaella. We'll be back again !!
