Visited Calabajio three times this summer, both for lunch and dinner. The restaurant is overlooking Playa Cabria and has a nice scenic view. The food is very good. I tried both a hake course, as well as chateubriand for main course. Even though this is one of the best restaurants in Almunecar, the prices is a bit high compares tho similar ones.

Nice and beautiful I was told. It is beautiful indeed!
We went for a drink and it was terrible...
We asked for a table, they did not have available...there were only 4.
Not too many people in The chill-out Bar but already served. We waited 25 minutes for The waiter. We ordered three cocktails and a pop. We waited for another 20 minutes To be served because The waiter did not know how To prepare The cocktails as we were told. Once served, The daikiris tasted Coco....so we did not have them.
They did not charged The cocktails and we left that beautiful place after 50 minutes.
A pity, no coming back there anymore

absolute rubish, it is near to the hotel resort, but other than that far from the town centre and very expensive for the service/food provided, would recommend more central restaurants like el arbol blanco or the tapas bars like mama matiu, such a difference in service and the food gets a greater run for the money!

The location is top-notch, good views and the dining room and terrace have a tasteful, modern decoration. Unfortunately, that's where the positive comments end.

The food is very hit and miss. There are some nice dishes on the menu, but those are marred by the very half-assed attitude of the chef. Dishes often come out cold, or served without the proper accompaniments. All meat dishes are severely undercooked (a "medium-well" steak will arrive more or less rare).

The service is also not too impressive. While the waiters are moderately attentive throughout your meal, they seem disinterested and are not very helpful, especially if you enquire about the wine list.

The whole experience leaves a bitter taste in the mouth, especially when the bill comes.

We have been there in the medium season of September after a recommendation of the owner of our rental appartment. When we arrived for a Sunday lunch the restaurant was very crowded and we decide to come back for a weekday lunch. It was absolutely worth to come back on a not so crowdy wednesday afternoon.
What a sight on the surrounding area (beach and a small park) and what an excellent food and wine. It is a very relaxing area with nice chill out music and everything seems to us perfect. We eat some great seafood which you can expect in trendy area's in bigger cities like Madrid or Barcelona. The wine was also brilliant (a Spanish non-oaked chardonnay) and gave an excellent match with the served food. Thank you for being here. Look forward to come back!
