Lost count of the number of times we have been to la cancela mmmm. We ALWAYS start and end our holiday her, with lots of equally good food elsewhere in between.NEVER sampling another pizza though as im sure we would only bedisappointed if it didn't compare. I always have the Kalima and pour over the chilli oil mmm, I have tried several of the other pizzas on offer and enjoyed them all. The steak is also amazing, I never really order steak when eating out but it's superb! You have to have pizza though when eating somewhere like la cancela!!:)

Great food, authentic feel, great pizzas, lovely friendly owner & staff. Love the dates with bacon, padron peppers and of course the Pizzas. We have been many times and would not miss a visit next time we are here. Look forward to next time! Xx

We used this restaurant twice during our recent stay after being recommended. The first time to eat in the second a takeaway. Huge selection of pizzas cooked in the pizza oven in the restaurant area, very tasty and some of the best we have tasted. The service was excellent and the owner Marisol was so friendly, helpful and attentive. We were very impressed and would have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant.

Always busy so advisable to get there early if you want to get a table! We ate here twice during our holiday - would have done so more but on our first visit we couldn't even get through the crowded bar area to enquire about getting a table so gave up & on our last visit, despite managing to get seated, after sitting for 20 mins without even ordering a drink we gave up again & went elsewhere! However, on the 2 occasions we did eat here, the food was good! Pizzas & pasta were excellent! Pizzas freshly cooked by the chef in full view which kept the kids entertained! Service was ok until we wanted the bill then more or less came to a standstill! Great place to eat if you're not in a hurry!
