Cannot fault this place in any way. It's not fine dining but good service, really good food, friendly and prompt service.

Well located restaurant right on the beach if you get a well situated table. Food is nothing fancy but was ideal for a family lunch. Salads just ok but I think it's difficult to get a salad with flavour around here. Also had nice breaded chicken and sardines (other fish on the menu very expensive). Delicious sangria. Service can be... More

Went to this Chiringuito on the beach in La Cala De Midas twice in a week. The weather was hot and sunny and we sat outside. The fried fish platter was excellent. On the second visit I had the calamari plancha and the others had the paella. Both dishes were very good. Great for a family lunch after a morning... More

We have been eating here for over 20 years and it is always good. Friendly service and in a great position. Children can play on the beach while you eat and you can relax. Paella is good value and have tried most fish dishes, the grilled or fried Rosada are particularly good. Only place I have found in La Cala... More

Although the place closes for the winter months, since re opening my wife and I visit at least twice a week. Carla and the rest of the team, are always happy, the service faultless, plenty of choice from the menu, there is always a supply of fresh fish, I normally stick to the sword fish, but this year have been...

another real beach bar run by Spanish friendly people.The food is what you expect from this type of bar, its good food at a reasonable price. I have seen film crews making Spanish soaps in the bar. Have great time.

Popped in just for a coffee and made very welcome. Chilly, blustery day but didn't affect the friendliness of the staff. Smashing cup of coffee, very reasonably priced at a Euro and a half each. Unfortunately they will not survive by us alone but we will give them repeat business!

We come to Costa del Sol twice a year for the last three years. A visit to Chiringuito Arroya at La Cala is utterly essential since we discovered it. Outstanding food, drink and service. Our holiday wouldn't be the same without a nice chomp and seat in the sun there.

We've tried several restaurants on the beach and for us it was the worst. The food was less then average. The fried fish was slightly undercooked. The vegetables were overcooked. The service was awful. Poorly trained staff is probably the reason. But the location is absolutely great.
