May to September "rough and ready" beachfront restaurant that specialises in fish and seafood. Very good service, great quality and all the usual stuff on the menu. Great atmosphere and wonderful views. Probably better to book a table. A very pleasant way to spend a warm summer night, drinking wine, eating fish and enjoying the hubbub that the, mainly Spanish,... More

Colourful plastic chairs from which to enjoy the fantastic sea views. Nice enough service, decent food (Spanish, med food) and good service. You really have to book a table during July and August if you want to stand any chance not eating there. Nice tapas, salads and rice dishes on demand.

Lovely setting overlooking the tosca beach, Very basic surroundings but freshly cooked simple food. The service is always excellant. Probably have to book at weekends as it is very popular, Brilliant seafood and fish, but the chicken and chips is lovely as well.

There is no Michelin Star here. This is simple food, straight out of the sea prepared simply by regular folks in a spectacular atmosphere with a great view of the sea at a moderate price, with cold beer and servers that have perennial smiles. Taste the Mediterranean at this place and take in the sun. In fact, don't go !!... More

We arrived here just for a drink with friends at 16.30 hrs on a Friday evening, and whilst there were only a few tables occupied a lot of them were reserved, so first thing I would say if you want to eat here at a busy time it would be best to phone before hand. It's a family run business... More

Been going here for years. This is a family run business and we know the family and have seen them grow up! Not open all year round usually from May to September. None of the chairs match and the tables are all different too! Right on the rocks with a pool for the kids filled with salt water. Not the... More

Went on a lovely morning walk around the Cala Blanca area, away from the flocks of tourists in the Arenal. Perfect for a beer after a long walk and between 12 and 2 it was not too busy. After 2 it really fills up with Spanish tapas eaters.

This beach bar is a real treat at lunchtime. The menu is small but beautifully cooked, the sepia and sardines are particularly good. The staff are excellent, friendly, attentive and knowledgable.

The worst part is the service that annoys everybody, the food is too expensive compare to the porcions and during the meal we can hear the waiters fighting. Gordon Ramsay should come to this "restaurant".

Visited here with my parents in law, husband and 2 young children. La Caleta has a great, informal, friendly atmosphere. Plastic colourful chairs and tables, a nicely done "no frills" tapas bar/restaurant. It is directly on the beach with fabulous views.The food was tapas and fairly good, Spanish Tortilla was lovely and homemade. House wine good. The service was excellent,... More
