Menu on Friday. Convenient and good quality. Excellent view in a terrace. Had a paella that would usually cost just the price of the menu.

Visited with family of four. Staff were friendly and efficient. Relaxed atmosphere in a great location in the old town. The food was excellent and reasonably priced. Nice mix of tapas style and main courses. Practical but not extensive menu for kids. Would visit again if in the area.

Had a very good menu of the day and was served by Jordan the multilingual waiter. A most enjoyable experience. Very nice views looking over the bay of Roses. Very good value.

Tapas for two is the perfect meal if you are into sea food and tapas. Reasonable priced, helpful staff and nice views to the sea, If youare looking for high class, this is not the place, but given the location and building we found it a nice place to dine.

Some simple sign explaining outside would see them increase trade but as to whether people will go back is a little questionable. I would say the people are charming though. You select your raw fish and you... More

My husband, son and I had dinner at La Cala recently. We found the tapas for two menu to be very good value for money, since it allowed us and our son to try a wide variety of dishes. The cooking was very good, although some of the other restaurants we tried in l'escala had somewhat softer and bigger seafood,... More
