There is a reason why the menu never changes, the food is just amazing! The service is fantastic and the atmosphere incredible, and Castelados around the corner is just as fabulous!

The bar outside of the restaurant was full of people enjoying cocktails and tapas which is always a good sign. The dinner at the restaurant did not disappoint. Two of us split three dishes which was the perfect size. We did the layered tuna salad and it was amazing. We also had the house specialty of garbanzo beans and shrimp... More

This restaurant is there for a while, it is very busy with locals especially at the front. In the back is the restaurant also full and you have to make a reservation. My husband loved this restaurant a lot for their starters. I thought they were ok but I wasn't pleased with our table that was next to the kitchen... More

I highly recommend this... More

You can choose between a proper lunch/meal at the restaurant or an informal tapas plan at the bar, both are great options. Ask for alternatives out of menu, fish is always fresh, high quality in general. Perfect relationship price/quality for wine (try 'Condado de Haza') and leave some space for homemade desserts like 'Arroz con leche', rice with with coconut... More

Everything was good but the... More

We cannot comment the food served by La Castela, not having been given the opportunity tosample it. What we can give feedback on is our experience of the quality of La Castela’s customer service, and specifically its professionalism faced with its error over our booking(see the backstory below) – of which inadequate, complacent, and the perhaps the worstexperience we have...
