Had a lovely meal but beware. The recommended meals are not priced and considerably more than those on the menu and the bread brought to the table was charged for. All of this is a shame as the service was great and the food lovely. I would just like to known what I was paying before getting the bill.

one of my favorite restaurant in Santa Cruz, you find good salads (don't hesitate to ask exactly what you want), very good seafood (pulpo asado, chipirones, etc), and a warm and friendly welcome.

We discovered the restaurant during an evening walk and decided to give it a try. The food was so good that we had all of our dinners here during the rest of our stay in Santa Cruz. The staff was very friendly, especially Betsy who always recommended something special which was very tasty and fresh. Prices are reasonable.

I was attracted in by a friendly waitress and took my chance. I'm glad I did. The food was very good on both of my visits here. One day I had the house special, a very tasty pork dish, and next a steak with garlic sauce. I was able to sample some local Tenerife wine, so it was an additional... More

My wife and I had a supper in this restaurant. We took a salad to share, fish sama and lubina (I liked sama more), sangria and fresh squeezed juice (€52 total). Everything was very delisious. The service was great as well. The waitress Betsy explained us everything and recommended really lovely local food, which we enjoed so much.

Great food simply served in a central area of Santa cruz. We ate there twice and had excellent service, wonderful flavoursome food and good service. Many local spanish people ate there which is always a good sign.

Visited here last night as we wanted a meal rather than tapas. As mentioned before the waitress is an excellent persuader for the menu with no price, however we were fine with that. We shared a local cheese starter topped with nuts, delicious. We shared steak on the stone which was very tender once cooked. The wine was local and... More
