We used the Tripadvisor reviews and our own reccing before going for dinner tonight. The advert for mixed seafood grill with Canarian potatoes & mojo sauce did it for us. We started with hot bread, olives & red mojo sauce which was delicious and the main was a great mix of fish (salmon & sea bass) with shellfish (prawns &... More

Visited this restaurant for dinner - you have to walk to the end of the street of restaurants but worth it. Really enjoyed the first visit good service and very good food. Went again at the end of our holiday and again good all round, would highly recommend.

First restaurant we tried on arriving in Callao Salvaje after being encouraged in by a young guy outside it - he assured us that although prices were higher than elsewhere, the quality was also higher. I'm afraid we were disappointed. My husband had steak which he said was nothing special and I had chicken which was tasteless and smothered in... More

The steaks were super with flavorsome sauces. Also good size salmon fillet. We noted that their prices, particularly for speciality dishes are considerably higher than others nearby. Nice bottles of house rosado. Service was efficient but not overly friendly. It was quite busy but lacking something overall in atmosphere. On balance, would not rush back here.

Food is expensive but quality of the food is good. Food is well above average in Callao Salvaje. Food deserves 4 stars but service was somewhat weird and we did not get any recommendations from the waiter.

I arrived in Callao Salvaje on Friday to meet my girlfriend and her parents. She spoke of a chap who had taken her for being Spanish given her looks and that he had tried to encourage her and her parents to eat at his restaurant. He then tried a few nights later when we walked down past the restaurant but... More
