We've eaten here a fee times and the food is always excellent. Fresh home made bread dip and tapas. Tonight grilled tone and chicken. Lovely setting and friendly staff who remember that you've been before. Good prices too.

One of the best ham and cheese omelettes I have had in ages. All the food looked good and the staff are very accommodating. Highly recommend this place for lunch.

We had an excellent meal very good quality unfortunately the evening was cool which wasn't nice. Worth a visit if your down near the harbour with a good choice of food and drinks. The waiter regularly told us his mother had baked this today eg fresh bread deserts and more. Have to say he kept us entertained the whole evening.... More

Extremely friendly and attentive service at this restaurant. I had the Sole which was very enjoyable and well presented. The steak one had was slightly fatty and the pizza was enjoyable. Nicely positioned by the seafront and heaters in the outside seating area. Very busy and a good atmosphere.

We had Coquetts as a shared starter followed by fish fillets in an onion sauce and my wife had the mushroom omelette which she said was the best she had ever had on the island my meal... More

We were in need of some tapas for lunch one day and decided to give the mixed tapas platter for 13 euros a try having been well and truly schmoozed by the very friendly owner of the restaurant. My husband enjoyed the tapas although I must admit I was rather underwhelmed. However it was a very pleasant place to sit... More

We found the food less enticing than other reviewers. My wife's tapas selection was all deep fried (maybe she should have looked more closely at the photo menu) and the flavours were swamped. My mixed seafood was more than ample in proportion and OK, but none of the items were outstanding in taste. The local beer was possibly the best... More

Visited Puerto del Carmen for the afternoon and stopped off here for a very long lunch. A very good choice! The Vegetarian Paella was excellent and very fresh. Good house wine. Good place to sit and people watch. The staff are so friendly and really make you feel welcome. We watched a beautiful sunset over the mountains. Wouldn't hesitate to... More
