Heard a lot of whispers from the locals that chef gets the best prawns fresh daily all the way from Malaga himself... I wasn't disappointed !!... For starters we shared the prawns Pil Pil which can only be described as a master piece (it's a must), accompanied by a delicious crispy light garlic bread, and for main course I had the four cheese pizza with extra anchovies which was just like the ones we ate in Rome nice and thin with a lot of taste, and my partner had the seafood spaghetti which was absolutely amazing, the prawns/clams/mussels and squid was all fresh/tasty and cooked in the most delicious sauce. Unfortunately we didn't have room for dessert but definitely next time, I would highly recommend this little gem if your in the area, friendly waitress who spoke very good English and the terrace upstairs is well worth booking, the only criticism is that they close October time all through the Christmas period but seeing how popular they are during the summer season you can understand why, we look forward to returning and will definitely be back for the Prawns Pil Pil....

Recommended to visit the terrace while on holiday, what a disappointment!! service was ok but the owners were very rude when we complained about the started and the main course was poor and very very ordinary, certainly not a proper Italian restaurant.
Beware very small signs on tables telling you they only accept cash! There are many good restaurants in this area, but this one is certainly to be avoided

Read reviews on TA and tried to get in as very busy! Phoned earlier in the day and told us they were fully booked but if we popped down they would see if they could get us in and they did. The food and service was so good. Can't fault.

My husband and I have been holidaying in La Cala for the last few years and always ensure we visit The Terrace for yummy Italian food. My favourite is the Gambero Picante Spaghetti, truly the best prawns I've eaten.

The couple who run this restaurant pride themselves on quality and are hands on to ensure the food and service is superb. It's great to see hardworking people making a success of and growing their business, it's richly deserved.

Great place that we stumbled on! The mixed salad and broccoli pasta dish were both excellent. Staff helpful in providing directions to other nearby towns. Would go here again for sure.
