“Why is this cafe so highly rated?”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2014

Cala Marsal beach does get busy, so it would be handy to have a good cafe among those flanking this side of the beach. Having read the trip reviews, we decided to give this one a go. First, the views are good, no doubt about that, with plenty of shade. However you go to a cafe to eat and the food was sub standard. The fried eggs were virtually raw and the hamburger soggy and unappetising. Cola was supplied without ice or lemon, and when we asked for another the bottle was slammed down on the table. Simply a basic cafe with basic food and service, which was also very slow. I can only assume members are giving good reviews because other places on this strip are even worse. Prices are not cheap either!

“Great”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

Lovely place to sit & watch the world go by, fab views over the bay and great food. The staff were really welcoming & friendly, we went most days for lunch/drinks. Maybe not the cheapest but worth it.

“Nice beach side cafe - great for a lunchtime snack”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2014

There are quite a few cafe's that flank the beach at Cala Marsal and all have beautiful views. This one is nice because of the pergola that provides great shade when you want a bit of rest from the sun.
The food is OK but not great the bolognese sauce has a lot of tomatoes and not a lot of meat and the bocquerones I had were obviously frozen.
The thing that really did set it aside though was the coffee which is excellent.
I don't want to put anyone off this place it really is a very nice beachside restaurant - just don't go along there expecting a gourmet feast.
