We waited more than 1 hour to get sit while all Spanish people were given a table before us continuously. After 1 hour waiting we waited 30 minutes to order, they ran out of everything and service was really unfriendly. We were served a starter while 2 were forgotten, so we had 1 st course and then the other starters.... More

Booked table for a Sat night. Place wasn't too busy. Good quick service. I had beef, chick pea and potato stew and the wife had a mixed seafood salad. Good sized portions and we both enjoyed them. Restaurant has a lovely old feel to it. Staff were ok, not eager to please and could have asked if we were enjoying... More

We visited Santa Cruz during carnival and we were already impressed by the lively environment. We stopped for a Sunday lunch at La Hierbita and it was packed. The staff was really efficient taking our reservation, although they did not offer us any drinks while we were waiting, which was the only downside of the visit. Once a table was... More

Authentical food served in old canarial house - great interiors, we liked the most second floor, several independent rooms for 2-4-6-8-12 and more people. Great for private dinners. Good simple food. Generous portion (consider sharing with your partner ) .Low prices and friendly service make the place our favorite. Reservations recommended, as it is very busy at lunch (14-15) and... More

Had a great lunch there with my family. Beautiful building. Friendly staff. My octopus and potatoes was the best meal I had during our holiday.

This number 1 on Yelp was nothing special in our view. The fried cheese was cold, but otherwise yummy. The carne fiesta was cold and grissley. Tuna salad was OK. Ambiance was nice and service OK. A decent restaurant, but don't fret if you don't eat here.

There was nothing wrong with the food we were served here, but equally there was nothing to write home about. We had assorted dishes of fish stew, prawns, Spanish omelette, mixed salad and cheesy mushrooms. Waiters seemed more interested in keeping on top of a constant flow of customers than individual service - a pity.

This is a great place to come and sample traditional Spanish cuisine in a vibrant atmosphere. This place is tucked away in a side street of Santa Cruz with lots of locals eating here. Good food at great prices.

We chose the restaurant after reading Lonely Planet's positive comment. Food is okay, meat is better than fish. The service is poor: waiters are too pushy, and wishing to have a free table soon. We wouldn't recommend this place. Prices are okay.

The restaurant offers a good quality of food for a reasonable price, in a quiet area of Santa Cruz de Tenerife.
