This may well be one of the better restaurants in the gastronomic desert which Calella is, but "buyer beware" - their prices are already high in the extreme (fried green peppers at 7.50 euros, they are 4.50 everywhere else, including Barcelona) but on top of that they are listed exclusive of value-added tax, so you are in for a surprise in your check. There is also a huge discrepancy between their English and Spanish-Castilian menus. I would not come back there, in addition to being a rip-off, the whole setup of dark wooden furniture and harsh white fluorescent light is simply offputting.

We ended up eating here twice - both times it was full outside so we had to head off for a drink and return a bit later. It's well worth taking a look at the menu ahead of your visit to get an idea of what you may like as the lighting outside isn't great, although it is ambient. My partner couldn't see to read the menu so had to make do with me talking it through. On first visit the food was great and the experience made it easier to plan our second visit. We decided on the latter visit not to try & go or the traditional 'starter & main' but opted for the Mixed grill and a salad - everything was perfect and we'd certainly choose the same again

On the town center we found this great place with a very nice garden inside perfect for a summer dinner. They serve a fantastic pizza (large, thin and crispy) with fresh ingredients. The place is always full but the service is very quickly and has a lot rotation of tables, we have waited about 20 minutes. The menu has another starters and dishes but we only taste the pizza and beer and we really enjoyed.

What a find! This place was amazing!
We had cava sangria which became our staple drink of the holiday, We had olives and nachos for starters which came with these absolutely delicious dips - chilli jam was absolutely just yum!!
The mains we had were chicken fajitas - lovely seasoning and a steak. Both cooked to perfection!
Very good value for money, great service and I wish we had this in the UK.

We visited Bodega Azor during our week stay in Calella. The place was full of locals so we knew we had found a great spot. Lovely atmosphere and a hugely impressive wine list to choose from. Don't be overwhelmed though - the staff are on hand to suggest options to you based on what type of wine you like, and all of the wine on the menu was very reasonably priced.
The food was equally fantastic and inexpensive - we opted for the 'toasties' and a foie gras mini burger to start. Everything we put in our mouths was just so delicious.
We loved it so much, we came back a second night to try more of the menu - which was equally as impressive! A massive thumbs up from us :)

As a vegetarian, I had to go looking for decent restaurants to eat at. Jordi's advertised a "vegetarian kebab" on the board outside, which drew me in. I didn't have that, as I was offered a veggie version of their curries (tikka or vindaloo). Which was great - someone knew what to do, there, and did it very well.
The only reason I didn't return was that they seemed closed after my initial visit. Staff were very pleasant, and there is an intriguing link to Nepal I would have liked to follow up on but never got the chance to.

Unusual, informal interior with many odd things to look at whilst waiting for your meal. They major on roast chicken with a lovely seasoning on the skin. You can see this cooking on wood fired spits. Friendly waiters also on the quirky side and it all added up to a very enjoyable evening. Reasonable prices.

What a little gem in Calella. We visited 3 times during our stay at the Hotel Bon Repos which is opposite. Their steak pie is to die for we had steak pie peas chips and gravy and it was lush. A very popular bar which was full every time you passed so that speaks for itself. Would definitely go there again .
