I have been going to this place for years and cannot find the same quality for price! Service is friendly and nice even though they are always so busy. A must go place if you go to Tenerife!

The first time i went with my wife and friends we were very impressed. Although we had to wait over an hour as it was so busy it was will worth it.
The fish was so good. We had a variety of fish as there were 8 of us. We all enjoyed the meal. The atmosphere was very good. As with us, the majority of people were local with a smattering of tourists.
Well worth a visit. We will be going again and again.

One of the best fish restaurants I've had the pleasure to eat in! This restaurant is quite well hidden and we only found it through the directions from a local. The first impression wasn't so great, the building is quite run down and the interior is a bit old-fashioned, BUT the food... it is amazing!
Once you have been seated you get up and near the kitchen to personally choose the fresh fish you want to eat. You can also choose which way you want it cooked/grilled. We went for grilled, with two bottles of white wine, with some side dishes.
The fish arrived and as we dug in, we simply couldn't stop filling our mouths! It was perfectly cooked and seasoned and we only stopped eating, once there was nothing left at all!
We all recommend this restaurant to every person that likes fresh fish, for a VERY reasonable price :)

Since the staff doesn't speak English, speaking a bit of Spanish is recommended!

We have eaten at this restaurant many times and why, it is one of the best places to eat fresh fish. The kitchen is open to the public eye and you can see how clean it is and how efficiently the kitchen works. It is always packed with people which is also a good sign. They always have fresh fish which you must choose before being seated at your table. The first course you can order once seated with a variety of camarones, pulpo, ensalada, gofio etc. There are also the typical desserts to choose from later if you still have some apetite. There are a range of good wines, but the local white and red wines are excellent and really there is no need to order anything better. The service is efficient and pleasant and the standard never drops which is one of the reasons I recommend this place highly and of course will frequent again many times in the future. You will not be disappointed.
