“A great find...”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Walking around crowded Calella, with rain threatening, we ducked into this small taberna away from the beach, which, at 1pm, was not at all busy. Lovely selection of simple, well-cooked tapas and smart, attentive service. By 3pm it was heaving with happy people enjoying their lunch. What more could you ask for?

“My favorite restaurant in Calella”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

We were only there 6 nights, but La Raquel was my favorite meal. No views of the sea, but I loved the ambience of the place and all of the tapas, montaditos, and toasts that we had were fantastic. My 7 year old son asked to go back every other night we were there to eat some more grilled sardines, and I'm still thinking about the lamb chops. I thought everything we had was wonderful, and the wine was good and well-priced, too. I thought it was a great bang for the buck.

“Tipic tapas,”
Reviewed 22 September 2013

A little restaurant that serves the tipic tapas in a very nice atmosphere. The prices are excellent, the service is very welcoming. A family run place that is worth a visit.

“well worth a visit”
Reviewed 12 August 2013

On a busy Sunday in Calella most of the seafront bars and restaurants were full so we ventured slightly away from the sea, saw Spanish people in Ca La Raquel and stumbled in.
The welcome was warm, friendly and efficient.
We chose a mixture of tapas from the main menu and from the specials board - our dishes included squid, cod croquettes, superb anchovies and rabbit.
Great value with wine, breads and water for under 30 euros for two
Not quite a hidden gem but well worth a visit.
