These were brought to our table with complimentary toasted bread, and allioli and fresh tomatoe dip. The first couse was choice of soups or a salad,... More

Lovey welcoming people and the food is also amazing. Have been coming to Isla Plana for the last 6 years and always try and make a point of eating here. Such amazing value for money and high quality food. Highly recommend.

Lunch for €9.95 per person includes 4 courses, coffee and a bottle of wine per couple! Really, get a grip anyone whinging, it was not a la carte, it didn't pretend to be but for this price it was exceptional value for money. Service efficient and friendly by the couple who own it. We had Gazpacho, onion soup, green beans... More

Not been for a while. Went to see if it had improved from last time. Not really. Over boiled veg. Overlooked thin fish and meat. Sweets were nice. At least they are not drowning everything in sauce anymore! The maison across the road is better.

Mui bien!! Last night was my 3rd visit to La Chara and loved it just as much as I did the first time. The little restaurant has a wide variety of dishes to choose from, with a great set menu and lovely menu del dia (if you're visiting at lunch). When visiting this time I had a beautifully fresh and... More

The choice on the a la carte menu or even from the special menu just can't be beaten anywhere. We have never had a substandard meal and the wine is excellent as well. Where a normal choice venue or for a special celebration the owners couldn't do more to make it memorable. Don't be put off by its position near... More
