Expert review of La Cala

Good value fresh fish with the Cadaqués locals. Ideal for escaping the tourist trail.

I’d be lying if I said this place was especially scenic or chic - it’s neither, so if you’re only in Cadaqués for the day you’ll probably prefer somewhere with a bay view or a more genteel ambience. If on the other hand you’re here for longer and want to eat good, simply cooked fresh fish alongside the locals, you could do a lot worse than this place. The prices are decidedly untouristy too.

Food and drink: 

There is a big choice of fresh fish - grilled sardines, mussels, fried anchovies, octopus and hake - as well as snails, lamb and pig’s feet. My cod carpaccio was especially good, as were the sardines. Don’t come expecting gourmet cuisine – it’s not that kind of place. It is fresh though and much better value than any of the seafront restaurants.

Ambience: 

It's nearly always packed with locals for lunch and dinner with nary a tourist in sight.

Service: 

The staff are friendly and efficient.

Location: 

It's about a five to ten minute walk from the cinema museum and the main city shopping area.

Price advice: 

The menu of the day is nine euros.
