This place is superb, the food, service, drinks (although they don't do cocktails which is unfortunate). We ate here three nights out of our seven night holiday. I had the Thai Fish Cakes every time, they are amazing. My husband had the Liver on our first visit and he said it's the best he has EVER eaten, perfectly pink and... More

We ate here on a cool day so sat inside. It's had a revamp since we were last in La Cala and it looks lovely. The seats are comfortable and it's done in Mediterranean colours. The food and service were good but not the best. We'd give them another go though so it wasn't that bad!

Very accommodating as we had not prebooked. We were a group of eleven and walked in by chance. Asked for split tables if that help them but it was not a problem even though they were busy for a Thursday night. They very quickly altered the tables. The open plan kitchen is always a good sign. They took our order... More

El Gusto never fails to satisfy a hunger. The new look has added to the restaurant's reputation. The menu has a good variety of dishes and the prices are not exorbitant. Also the staff are very friendly and attentive. So if you are in La Cala El Gusto is a must.
