Nice place, bad food

no me gusta

Not good. The patio is beautiful, and the location is handy. But food wasn't great. For instance, fried potatoes accompanying one of the main dishes were dry and cold, as if they had been left done for a while. The rest was okay, but we detected certain flavours that didn't spell "fresh" nor "artisan"... We ordered assorted sweet pastries for dessert (think baclava and similar) and they were tasty, but tiny.

Someone told us that they don't have a proper kitchen outside, but that food is brought from either a kitchen inside the main building, or pre-made somewhere, then heated outside... We don't know for sure. But that would not be surprising, given what we ate...

Uncomfortable, pretentious, expensive

no me gusta

I visited it with a couple friends on a Friday night. We were looking for a place to have a drink and eat a bit (tapas, or a ración to share; something simple like that).

We were seated in the dining room, which was a bit too dark. The lamps hanging from the ceiling were too low, though — so the effect was that you felt the light in your face and in your eyes a bit too much. The table and chairs were not really comfortable, and there wasn't much space in the room, either. The mats are plastic mats, they felt awkward, and the dishes and glasses stuck to it a bit.

The menu was short, and, iirc, did not include desserts. All dishes seemed kind of extravagant and whimsical (weird mixture of cuisines and ingredients). We ordered just two or three things to share (ceviche, something with boletus).

The food was good and tasty, but portions were too small.

Bocacalle seems okay-ish to try a a few new things with friends, but a bit expensive. If you want to have a meal and be full, you'll have to order one or two dishes per person, and it won't be cheap.
