After driving round and walking for ages to find somewhere to eat we found this little place. It was a great find, delicious food and very helpful staff in guiding us through the local fish available. We had Lapas, and the fresh grilled fish of...More

We had a couple of fabulous lunches here. The fish were Alfonsinos, a sort of deep water bream, with big eyes and delicate rosy skin, susceptible to overcooking. Ours- we had big ones between two people- were exceptional, and exceptionally well-cooked. Sweet and juicy with...More

Extremely welcoming and friendly service! Much appreciated! The food was excellent and the price fine. I could have rated 5 stars but the setting outside was not very cosy. The lights were "cold" neon lights. But a great restaurant in La Restinga!

Delicious, fresh local food. Amazing fish and seafood, “mojo” and salads. Very friendly service, you can count on their advice. A must in la Restringa.

Ate here twice, salad was really good, seafood soup a bit thin, fish of the day was ok but both times cooked in the same way with far too much garlic (and I like garlic). Owner was friendly, helped with menu and was attentive.

Had seafood soup to start, watery with only a hint of the sea. We had grilled fish, not sure what the fish was, but it was OK served the ubiquitous hard Canarian potatoes and mojo. Highlight was the creme caramel.

As a vegetarian I was going here as it was recommended to my husband to try the fish. On our first visit the owner recommended peto (Wahoo). Freshly caught. The portion was very generous but no sauce was served with it. He found the dish...More

We enjoyed fresh fish, salad and fries here all washed down with cold beer. Upon being seated in this simple restaurant the catch of the day is shown to you on a platter and you choose what you would like. The fish was well presented,...More
