With my 17yo son, I was looking for a good steakhouse. We saw La Caretta on trip advisor and went for it.

We weren't disappointed. From the moment we entered, we were looked after very attentively. Our steaks (ribeye and the bone) cooked perfectly (both medium rare) and served without any delay. They were the biggest steaks either of us had ever seen before! Wonderful!

Next time we are in the area, we will definitely visit again. I can't recommend the place highly enough. Unless you're a vegetarian.

Firstly the good points: English speaking waiter. Lovely, friendly atmosphere. Meat cooked to perfection.

Now these aren't bad but I would say slightly disappointing. The main courses are quite small. When they ask 'with chips' they mean with chip. The desserts on the other hand were a reasonable size.

The kitchen didn't open till 20.30 so we did wait around.

Because the portions were small it felt that the meal was expensive.

All this aside, it is still the best place in the area to eat so far.

We have been here twice once in May 2013 and then October 2016. The food is excellent and the staff speak excellent English and are very attentive, even though it was on a Spanish Holiday and the place was full to capacity.
Food wise had pork sirloin, family had lamb, chicken and a shared salad. Highly recommend if your in the area.

A short bus ride fro Rincon is this restaurant in an impressive building. It was quiet at this time of year. We had a shared Iberian ham starter with a baked gilt head bream and lamb brochettes as a main. The starter and lamb was really good quality, tasty and a good sized portion. The bream was unfortunately overlooked and therefore a little dry. A good dining experience but would choose to go at a busier time as it lacked atmosphere. All the staff were pleasant and welcoming and a credit to the restaurant.
