This restaurant offers different sorts of soup. We tried two chicken soups and they were soooo good! We could have easily shared one soup because the portions are massive. Staff is friendly and we felt very welcome. Will definitely go back!More

We'd been recommended El Caldero and I'm so glad we checked it out. The soups are full of flavour and ingredients - they're very filling and hearty! The service was also great, really attentive and quick.More
