The food was of high quality and freshly prepared, I had no problems being gluten free. The service was quick and there was great atmosphere inside the cave - be sure to sit inside!

Chose to eat inside this restaurant in a cave. 10/12 tables inside with half a dozen on the quiet roadside. Food presented was good and reasonably priced - not over busy on this night, so service was good as one might expect. If around here for a few days then would recommend

food was very average, service mostly awful, a smile/be friendly school on La Gomera should be a good idea, I think. Spend a few quid more and go next door where you feel like a valued customer. They cook better too...

Mid-week visit. This restaurant is well known for being set into a cave, however we didn't actually get to go inside, being directed to a table on the terrace. Catch of the day very good. Restaurant is on the road-side leading to the harbour so you get to see the very freshest catch being driven by the front door!

We had dinner here, on the plus side they did give us a table without a booking and the water cress soup starter was very nice. Oh and the setting is quaint as it's under a rock overhang. BUT the staff were a bit miserable, hardly a smile to seen. The food, apart from the starter, was average to poor... More

Fantastic location but failed to deliver in service and seafood. Both cuttlefish and squid were tough with the former lacking flavour, however the watercress soup and the meat and veg stew were excellent. Great setting but staff other than young waitress and lady manager had lost ability to smile.

What a little gem of a place. The setting is amazing, and old fisherman so cave. The staff very welcoming and helpful Food amazing and all freshly caught and brought in from the boats in the harbour opposite.

Nice setting in a grotto and tasty local fish dishes. Try the local speciality dish. Very slow service though...
