Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Great authentic food at reasonable prices. Lunch specials each day and you can get a beer there as well. Just check the opening times as they can vary.

We spent 10 days on Christmas Island with family and had lunch here twice Food was great and prices very reasonable With lunch specials each day. Would highly recommend - didn’t have dinner but I’m sure it’s the same high standard

This restaurant has a large outdoor eating area with lovely views of the ocean. The restaurant looks uninteresting from the road, as you drive past but don't be fooled. But best of all is the food. We ate the most delicious Chinese dishes. Even the...plain rice was tastier than usual. I note that I am a harsh reviewer of restaurants - so this positive review is rare and well deserved.More

We were advised that they served good food at reasonable prices so we decided to try them. The internet and the sign on their door advised of opening hours. Trouble is that when we went there, they were closed. It doesn’t take much to change...the sign at the front door to reflect accurate information. We drive past most nights this week, and have never seen them open.More

Our first night on Christmas Island saw all 28 of us enjoy a really nice meal at Le Cla. In spite of our large numbers, they coped really well and the food was delicious and not expensive. The restaurant looks a little tired but the...friendly staff and good food more than make up for the plain surroundings.More

I never get tired of going to La CLA when on CI. The food is so delicious, staff friendly and attentive, and view from the balcony tops the experience off.

Both the internet and the sign out front advised they were open, but we tried a couple of times in the evening and they were closed. We were advised the food was good and prices reasonable, just a pity they didn’t change their sign to...show they were not open.More

Just recently visited this place with my partner and we were astonished at how good the food tasted, so much more better than back home. We've been coming here to get most of our meals during our trip, the place is very very affordable for...such amazing food. The best part about this place is it's beautiful view of the indian ocean, we love to sit out and just take in the breathtaking view that they offer. I do highly recommend anyone coming to visit to come here for sure. You know the place is good when it's always so busy especially in the night!!More

Don’t be mislead by the outside of this building because as soon as you enter you are met with an enthusiastic reception and willingness to make your dining experience just that, “an experience”. Food comes quickly and is good value, and very flavoursome. Tables overlooking...the ocean are best and often available. At night time you can’t see the water but the breeze is pleasant. We returned several times to enjoy the food and experience. Better value than other Chinese restaurants on the island and much friendlier service. Lunch is great with a cold beer overlooking the water.More

As I am writing this i am sorely missing the mee goreng, fried rice, sweet & sour chicken and the many other delicious food they have to offer. My husband and I visited the island for the first time for vacation, chancing upon CLA was...a blissful accident. When we first arrived we were told to go to the chinese restaurant up the hill, but however, after discovering this place on the 3rd day we have never gone to any other place on the island. Lunch & Dinner you would be seeing us there, we just can't get enough of the food and what top it off is the affordability of it. I cannot say enough how great of a place this is and the staffs were really friendly and helpful, had a good chat with them as well understanding their culture. We will be back for sure.More

My go-to place on the island when I'm craving some delicious Chinese cuisine. The service staff are very friendly and great at offering recommendations when I can't decide. The best part is the AMAZING view of the ocean from the patio!

This place is a hidden GEM! We didn't know about this Cafe till our 2/3 day located at the settlement overlooking the Indian Ocean. They've got an amazing outdoor seating which is breezy and nice to sit out and have a meal during dinner. They...served the BEST food such as Sweet & Sour Pork, Fried Rice, Garlic Beef etc , dropped by a couple of times during our stay and we absolutely ENJOYED IT. Literally the only place we visited because it is so so affordable and delicious, staffs was friendly and recommended to us a the dishes to try which have become my fav. They do takeaway as well and that's what we did on some nights when we want to stay in. Anyone in town have to hit this place up for sure, affordable and delicious!! Also, it's called Le Cla and not LA CLA.More
