The view yes is... More

Authentic, cute environment with a fab location (superb panoramic views). Menu is compact, nice and interesting, you find local dishes as well as fish or salads. The dishes are a bit hit and miss, but everything feels like "the grandma cooked it". Prices are nice. Watch out for the wines though. They have their own produced wine, which smells terribly...

A very nice restaurant with real authentic food and a great view over the ocean and city. Great personal and good service. We visited this restaurant after sightseeing at teide mountain and parking was easy and free of change. I recommend this restaurant for both families and couple who want to have a nice lunch or dinner :)

We booked the restaurant via the owner who we rented a Finca from last year. He squeezed us in despite being busy. The food was superb - without knowing QUITE what we were going to receive, it was delicious. The waiter gave the impression of being a bit surly - but efficient.

Nice atmosphere and friendly staff. English is an issue. One tapa dish was not served but charged. Overall okay experience.

The restaurant is well appointed, serves well cooked local dishes at a reasonable price. The views from the restaurant down over the coastline far below are magnificent. It's worth booking / reserving a window table in advance.

This is by far our favourite place to eat in the north of Tenerife; we aim to visit each time we're in Tenerife. We've worked our way through the menu; absolutely everything is super. Cannot fault the quality of food or service; simply excellent !

We went last week but they were closed due to refurbishment. We met a lady at the door who apologised, suggested we go over the road to one of their other restaurants. We did, and after we came out she saw us and asked if we enjoyed the food there, we did. Will visit again when they open as they... More

Authentic Canarian cuisine with a modern twist. Amazing wine out their own vineyards. I tried the typical rabbit dish called "Conejo en Salmorejo" that comes with the very well known "Papas arrugadas", the Canarian boiled potatoes. If you can, book a table at the window and enjoy the unique views!
