Very nice personel - good food and good music Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Table reservation is recomended. Locals jump in and sing. We went there twice during our stay and will for sure come back next visit to the isla magica. Do recommend this restaurant....More

Ate here with my nine-year-old daughter last night. Some local musicians playing and a genial host made it a pleasant experience, but the waitress was borderline rude. Seafood soup was enjoyed by my daughter and although she couldn't finish her chicken breast it was tender...More

Friendly priced restaurant slightly off the main road. The salad was very good, the deep fried goat cheese rather tasteless. The portions are huge, the quality average. We had sole, which was somewhat dry because baked too long, and cazuela with monk fish which seemed...More

Situated about Vueltas in Borbalan the El Palmar is the "local" for many German walkers that rent the plentiful, cheapish ,accommodation nearby - so it gets busy early and reservations are a good idea. The place itself is a bar and restaurant and has a...More

A bit off the main track but a nice walk. Food was excellent - especially the fried goats cheese. Local food and local musicians. Waitress looked like she would rather be somewhere else but we will definitely go again..

Excellent food and good value. The best meal we had in our week here. As the other review says a little out of the way but still busy and a good atmosphere. The only place we saw local la gomerans in.
