Hidden away in the back streets of Callela. The food consists mainly tapas style meats, sausages, bread, & chicken with their special gravy. The staff are friendly & being in a wheelchair was no problem! They just picked me up in my chair up the steps to the entrance & to a table. I say table in the loosest terms... More

We ate here twice, and the food was fabulous. Very simple but good. Tapas and Roast chicken, the place is very popular so you may have to wait to get a table but it's worth it.

Just last night I dined at this restaurant with my children Harold and Frederick and my wife Patricia, and I was completely blown away by the sheer quality of service and food served. Despite being tucked away in a little alleyway it boasted a sense of class one does not see often, even on the high streets of London. I... More

Great food. Friendly attentive staff. Felt a little rushed but it was more efficient really as a huge queue had built up outside so don't leave it to late to eat.

The atmosphere of the restaurant is really unique. Much graffiti on walls, small wooden tables. Their specialities are mussels and chicken. We tried both, the mussels were good, but nothing special to me. But the chicken was very great. It was one of the most delicious chicken I ever had!

Old family restaurant. This place is known for serving good roasted chicken and mussels. The restaurant is rather unique in the city of Calella. Menu presents simple home made dishes which are excellent. Prices are low. Sangria is very nice. Staff is very friendly as long as owners. I would recommend to reserve on weekends as there are many customers... More

You don't come for the service, decor, tables or anything else. You come to La Roda for the chicken. By far this restaurant provides some of the most delicious chicken I have ever tasted. The standards of food are unlike anything I have seen in a restaurant. I would definitely recommend La Roda to anyone who wants to have a... More

The food here was delicious. The meat platter was good value and more than enough for 3. It included rabbit, chicken, steak, chorizo and sausage. The roast chicken was devine. The atmosphere was welcoming and the service attentive, professional and pleasant. An absolute must.
