After a windswept stroll along the beach, we attempted to have lunch here on a Thursday in November and we couldn't get a table it was fully booked. We offered to come back a bit later as the popularity of the place (considering it was a windy Thursday in November) made us want to persevere! The waiter very apologetically informed... More

This is a lovely restaurant very friendly staff. When you order a drink it is served with a small dish of olives or tuna Mayo salad or 2 chicken wings or potato & egg pie/omelet it was a nice little touch and was free of charge. We went regularly. Highly recommend.

Walked past here many times so decided to visit as it was busy which is always a good sign. Neither wonder it's busy, service very good without being rushed. Menu was a nice surprise. Only there for lunch but the portions were huge. Chicken soup is the best my husband has had for years (and he is a chef!) I... More

We visit Calpe every year, and up until this year we would eat lunch most days there and also visit in the evenings. This year, our first stop was here for lunch, we were disapointed to see that the usual staff were not around, and when we asked we were told they had all moved on.....we ordered our usual, which...

Well talked about, the Thursday couscous at la guitarra has become, if you like couscous, a must try which we did. Having good knowledge of this dish from many trips in North Africa, I must say that it is tasty, served generously with plenty of stewed meats (lamb, chicken and sausages) and plenty vegetables in a bouillon. This couscous version... More

My wife and I have eaten at this place for over ten years. Our last visit, and I mean last, was dreadful. Although the food was acceptable and the waiter (Jabi) was attentive, as always, the owner was extremely rude to me pointing his finger at my face and telling me to shut my mouth when I mentioned to a...

When we are in Calpe, we always come here for either lunch or dinner. I have to say we have never had a bad meal, the staff are great and go out of their way to be friendly. Look forward to going back next year.
