Well I have to say the food is still as good as our visit earlier in the year. The steaks, one cooked in vodka and the other with port were delicious. On a second visit we had pork shoulder, beef cheeks and a burger all very well cooked. The staff are very friendly and the prices although a bit on... More

The Calabajio is situated just above the beach in a relative quit area of Almunecar. Even before you get the food, you will properly like the place with its tile floor, beamed high roof and tranquil sitting in the Parque Mediterraneo. There is, even with the restaurant full, a very relaxed atmosphere and a very airy ambience. Even though we... More

Having read other reviews we were a bit wary the relatively high price would not translate into a worthwhile experience. It was a great surprise: great ambience, service was helpful, fast and efficient (and we were 12), food was brilliant, excellent quality of ingredients and very interesting elaboration.

My boyfriend and I visited calabajio on our last night of our holiday as I had previously eaten there and thought the location and food were for such a special occasion. The overall evening was perfect but there were a couple of surprises! We ordered a starter each, as the menu did not say they were sharing portions and they... More

Visited Calabajio three times this summer, both for lunch and dinner. The restaurant is overlooking Playa Cabria and has a nice scenic view. The food is very good. I tried both a hake course, as well as chateubriand for main course. Even though this is one of the best restaurants in Almunecar, the prices is a bit high compares tho... More

Nice and beautiful I was told. It is beautiful indeed! We went for a drink and it was terrible... We asked for a table, they did not have available...there were only 4. Not too many people in The chill-out Bar but already served. We waited 25 minutes for The waiter. We ordered three cocktails and a pop. We waited for... More

absolute rubish, it is near to the hotel resort, but other than that far from the town centre and very expensive for the service/food provided, would recommend more central restaurants like el arbol blanco or the tapas bars like mama matiu, such a difference in service and the food gets a greater run for the money!

The location is top-notch, good views and the dining room and terrace have a tasteful, modern decoration. Unfortunately, that's where the positive comments end. The food is very hit and miss. There are some nice dishes on the menu, but those are marred by the very half-assed attitude of the chef. Dishes often come out cold, or served without the... More

We have been there in the medium season of September after a recommendation of the owner of our rental appartment. When we arrived for a Sunday lunch the restaurant was very crowded and we decide to come back for a weekday lunch. It was absolutely worth to come back on a not so crowdy wednesday afternoon. What a sight on... More
