Amazing atmosphere with lovely furniture and you can sit outside during the summer. Great variety of menu - one of the best menus in La Cala! So much to choose from! Food is superb - definitely worth a visit.

We ate here on a cool day so sat inside. It's had a revamp since we were last in La Cala and it looks lovely. The seats are comfortable and it's done in Mediterranean colours. The food and service were good but not the best. We'd give them another go though so it wasn't that bad!

El Gusto never fails to satisfy a hunger. The new look has added to the restaurant's reputation. The menu has a good variety of dishes and the prices are not exorbitant. Also the staff are very friendly and attentive. So if you are in La Cala El Gusto is a must.

Have visited here for years and years and is always a nice bite to eat, with good service and a reasonable price. The menu however doesn't seem to change and whilst I was advised the Thai green curry is made fresh to order, I find tis hard to believe, it was more like a chicken soup cooked with lemongrass and...

Recently met a friend here for lunch. We sat outside in the sunshine and were welcomed by very friendly staff. I ordered the sizzling chicken fajitas which were very tasty, but I couldn't eat it all as the portion was huge. My friend ordered the steak and cheese pitta, which she enjoyed. I will return but in the evening next... More
