“Terrible food”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

We were a group visiting this restaurant, based on the reviews on tripadvisor. At first glance we thought that the place didn't look cozy at all, and menus with pictures are a sure way to tell if a place is too oriented on tourists.
We gave it a shot though, and our first instincts were correct. The food was unbelievably bad.
I had a salad, I'm a 3. year vegan and I didn't even finish my plate. Tomatoes wasn't ripe, tasted stale.
Chicken was dry, little to no seasoning. Accompanying salad had canned mushrooms on them, tomatoes here was bad as well. Fries was incredibly greasy and tasted like old oil.
One dish was comprises entirely by deep fried battered calamari. These too was so greasy the plate was not finished. Why the waiter didn't explain to the one ordering that they should order a side salad or something was just plain weird.

While we were eating the chef/one of the chefs came out, sat behind us an turned on a television, started watching sports. His meal comprised of one cooked potato and a piece of seared meat. That tells me that he doesn't even wanna eat the things on their own menu.

The toilets, were for some reason heated, or had incredibly poor ventilation. We were there late in the evening, and going to the bathroom with the unflushable toilet was like entering a sauna. It was a minimum of 10+ degrees compared to the rest of the restaurant.

Beers on the menu card was unavailable.

All in all, our worst dining experience on our vacation. The people writing about this restaurant previously must have had an entirely different set of standards or no taste buds.

Only + was the waiter who seemed nice and spoke English.

I liked the food and service, there was a choice of dishes, prices were ok snd food tasted normal. Its not posh place but good for lunch or dinner inbetween sunbathing and swimming.

“Mediterean meals near beach, good service”
Reviewed 30 June 2014 via mobile

The best location for lazy tourists - 200 meters from the sea. Food was quite good but it was not very spicy for my opinion. Soup was very good - with chicken, tomatoes and spaghetti. Grilled squids were the best. Waiters were very kind and helped very professionally with a good level of English. Recommended as one of the best service-oriented place.

“Maritim restaurant”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

Good choice of food at very reasonable prices just across the road from the beach, I would go here again (we did three times) and would recommend it.

“Nice place for a meal on a budget”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

We were recommended to come to this restaurant by the hotel receptionist on our first night in Calella as we arrived late in the resort and the hotel restaurant was closed. It was only a few minutes walk from the hotel. It was fairly empty in the restaurant as it was quite late but a good sign was that the 2 x local ambulance crew were in there having a quick bite and a coffee. We ordered pizza for our child and myself and a grill and ribs for my hubby. The food was nice and tasty and good value for money. the service was a little slow considering there were only 3-4 tables with guests, but we didn't mind too much. The staff were friendly and helpful and they gave our little boy a free lolly when we left. If we went back to Calella we would go back to this restaurant again.
