Food was good not brilliant but good. My two dishes were only warm and could have been a bit hotter. Ambience of restaurant is quite nice. Waitress in my opinion needs to listen to what her customers are asking for. She had a bit of an attitude problem and did not make us feel welcome. The menu is quite limited... More

Our anniversary so wanted a special meal. Got it in abundance at la cata. The food was excellent, the flavours sublime. Service was efficient and also friendly. Great front of house. Every morsel of food tasted fantastic and worth every penny. Best steak I have had in Spain for many years.

After a few years we went again to La Cata. An expensive restaurant in this area, with a small card but the food is very nice: worth the money. Negative is the service: certainly not nice lady who's glad when the clients are leaving. When the service is better, I would give 5 stars

the fillet steak is among the finest we have eaten in Europe, the service is efficient but relaxed and the prices reasonable given the very high quality.

Our favourite restaurant, after being closed over Christmas and new year we were happy to see la Cata back open as we were finding it difficult to find somewhere that serves fresh homemade food. I'm very fussy but always happy with the dishes served and can see and taste the thought and passion that goes into every mouthful. Well done... More
