We went to La Cala to eat fish, one of us had the sea bass cooked in salt the other grilled. As a starter we ordered fried egg plant (aubergine) with a sauce that tasted almost like maple syrup. Very tasty.

Although the fresh fish is a good buy, especially for two sharing they seem reluctant to be flexible about "sides": when my wife asked for salad instead of vegetables she was told "not possible to change dish", I did not...

We had visited La Cala several times during previous visits and it was our favourite restaurant in the area. We had not been back to this area for 6 years and hoped it would still be as good as we recalled. We were not disappointed. The atmosphere, service and food were exceptional.

We had dinner here one evening as part of a group of 20. Excellent service, combined with delicious food served in truly appetizing ways, made this meal truly enjoyable. Great venue added to our enjoyment. Highly recommend.

A restaurant is a complex compendium of location, service, selection of food and wines, ambience and pricing/ value for money . La Cala ticks all these boxes and overall gains a 10 /10 in my book!

Best restaurant ever. The Chateaubriand is to die for. La Cala salad is a must. Excellent service with good advice.

Excellent service. Try the fish of the day either in salt or over coal. It is very good. The location is fantastic. Not the cheapest but worth the money because of the quality.
