We had a plate of squids and some fish. All was tasty, plus bread with two dressings, that really tied the meal together. ;-) And they did not charge for that extra. Staff was nice. Great view from the balcony.

We had just arrived and wanted a good place to eat. There was a table on the balcony over looking the bay, beautiful setting. Tried the tapas the meatballs were tasty and the Canarian potatoes were lovely. The service was good nothing was too much trouble. Very reasonable priced would definitely go back.

We had a late lunch at this restaurant with friends who live in Tenerife and recommended it. We could certainly see why. We had various plates of different tapas with salad and Canadian potatoes.

We were just passing by this place and decided to pop in for a quick lunch. I'm very glad we did. Good food and good location. Ate while watching kite surfers and listening to the waves.

Overlooking a small beach with pavement tables this is a great spot for lunch or drinks. I recommend the Russian salad and Croquettes pescados.
