Lovely restaurant with very friendly staff. We sat outside but under cover and I think this was nicer than inside as really big and lacking a bit in atmosphere. The fresh fish and grilled prawns were delicious and the complimentary drink that came with the bill was so nice we had to stay to have more. Views of the ocean... More

Good food and great service. It is an ideal option for late dinner cause they close late. The price is a little high but the food is very fresh

Excellent restaurant. Large portions, well cooked and presented especially the seafood, would recommend the fish soup. Helpful and pleasant staff, thoroughly recommended.

Antonio and the team gave us amazing food, service. The fish was superb, my husband also had the Canarian Soup which he said was also superb. The whole restaurant worked as a team and every detail was catered for. It was clear everyone knew what the other was doing so nobody was left out of feeling they were important.Couples, Families...

I found this place one day driving around the Island we stopped here for Lunch it was very busy but not touristy. We were not that hungry as we had a big breakfast but ended up eating more than we wanted as the fish was so good and the hot bread served as well was a lovely touch. We can’t... More

Looks really authentic. Many spanish local people were there. Portions are quite so we ended up over eating and leaving food on the table. Octopus with mashroom wasnt very good but grilled octopus was divine. Fried fish wasnt mixed fried fish (like calamares) but was actually fish but very good. Paeilla was excellent. Service wasnt that good. We had to... More

We chose this restaurant as it was recommended by a local person. The view is spectacular and the service was excellent. The food was good, I recommend the local "soup" - potaje, the fried cheese served with jam and the daily fish plate.

At first, we thought it would be the most touristic restaurant of Arrieta. Although there weren't many locals, it was not very noticable. The location is great and the staff is very enjoyable and pleasant. The food was absolutely good.
