“Many many times”
Reviewed 9 April 2012

from the UK with a villa in Playa Blanca.. Not only is this our favourite restaurant in the canaries, its also our favourite restaurant anywhere. Anyone who likes fresh fish and lean meat served in an authentic style will truly appreciate the charm and skill of the professionals that cook the food here and serve it at the table.

I can honestly say that the sea bass baked in salt and served at the table (for two) is just about the most mouthwatering food Ive had anywhere.. Forget all the people that bleat on about a Eu2 bread roll added to the bill, if you are food lover and dont look at the price before you order what you want, this is the only place in Playa Blanca worth the time and trouble to book a table. For anyone else who just wants the maximum volume of food delivered at a cheap price, there are plenty of chips with everything joints on the front.

“La Chalanita is somewhere special”
Reviewed 18 March 2012

Although it's a bit more expensive than some of the restaurants in Playa Blanca it's worth it. La Chalanita is somewhere special
There is always a warm welcome. The ambience and service are perfect for a quite (romantic) meal. The food and the cooking are top quality. We never felt rushed or pressured. Excellent duck confit, gambas, steak, pork, crepes suzettes etc.... House specially Flambé dishes
A restaurant for grown ups. Be sure to book if you would like a window seat or your a larger group (6+)

“Always the Best!”
Reviewed 13 March 2012

As a resident in Playa Blanca this is without doubt my favourite restaurant. The food is fabulous (the best Iberico pork ever!) as is the wine & the service. We are always made a fuss of & never hurried through our meal. It is more expensive than some of the restaurants on the sea front but as ever, 'you get what you pay for'. The food is fresh & extremely well cooked. Fabulous views over the sea front & port & a really nice atmosphere. I can't recommend Chalanita highly enough.

“Good but not as good”
Reviewed 9 March 2012

This is one of our favourite restaurants and the food is always very good.
Just felt the owners are a little less attentive.
