That is a shame - we ate there twice (once for breakfast) this month. But it did look very quiet when we passed in the evening

Very sad to see a long established restaurant go. I expect the rent was extortionate as it's a big restaurant. I'm not sure why but in all the years we never ate there...don't know why really as recent reports have been good. One of those places we walk pass every day but it never drew us in

We had heard this rumoured when we were out in September but it's still sad to have it confirmed
We'd only visited on our last 2 trips but it had definitely been added to our list of regulars after our those experiences.

+ we'll now need to find somewhere else that does a good chateaubriand !

An excellent restaurant and small hotel, brilliantly run by Martin & Elke, really feel for them and their staff, Juan is a really good chef and the 3 girls were brilliant with customers and the place was always kept spotlessly clean by Cybille (cleaner), I hope they all get fixed up with new jobs, they all worked so well together to create a well run establishment. I believe it is all due to owners not willing to put some investment in to upgrade fascilities which I think is shortsighted on their part as other hotels in the port have been upgrading, ie: Uyal, Capri, Mar Calma etc.

A very sad day indeed. I Emailed Elke a few weeks ago to be told that the future was uncertain. We were hoping, as usual, to book a week in the room at the top of the building in June 2014.

As I understand it, to comply with current electrical regulations the entire building needed re-wiring, a process that (in Spanish time!) might take over 12 months. My understanding was that, despite all the improvements and maintenance that Martin and Elke had contributed to the property over many years, the landlords felt that La Goleta should bear 100% of the cost of upgrading the electrics! If that's true, it's very short-sighted.

La Goleta was the first restaurant we regularly visited in the port, and Martin and Elke greeted us as old friends. If by chance they read this, Jane and I wish them every possible happiness in the future and we will always remember great service, food and happy times.

Very sad.

Snap! Came from can Balache one day during the summer and commented how lovely and breezy La Goleta looked with big tables occupied in the lane. Was going to give it a bash next year. Oh well, that will be that!

Now tell me if I'm missing something here, but the electrics had to be upgraded to comply with regulations and the landlord wanted martin to pay for all the work. Martin has said no, but the work still has to be done. On that basis the landlord will surely have to pay for it now as I can't see anyone taking the place on knowing that would be part of the deal.

This sounds similar to the old neptuno where the landlord knew it was a way to get rid of the old tenant.

Really gutted by this news. Have been to La Goleta the last 10 years and Martin and staff have been superb. The food and service have been incredible and I would like fo thank Martin and Elke as they have brilliant and their Paradilla de Cordero is my favourite meal on hols. Such a shame and selfishly I hope they find somewhere else to serve up their superb food. Best wishes to them all in the future.
