“Basic, limited range, well cooked”
Review of Juego De Bolas

Juego De Bolas
Ranked #5 of 7 Restaurants in Agulo
Restaurant details
Reviewed April 5, 2018 via mobile

Having arrived at the national park visitor centre on a very cloudy day we went to Juego De Bolas for lunch. The menu is limited (a few meats, tuna and cuttlefish, etc) all grilled over an open fire. Now, grilling over an open fire does impart some flavour, especially if the ingredients are such good quality that they can stand on their own. But aside from garlic with the chicken the tuna steak and cuttlefish were just that - a slab of tuna and a cuttlefish which had only been cleaned but was grilled whole with zero added flavour. If you are stuck in the mountains about to start eating your companions because you are starving then I would recommend it, if you aren’t then go somewhere else where the flavours of La Gomera are allowed near the food.

On a day off from preparing boats for the trans-Atlantic rowing race, we headed off to the large national park in the centre of La Gomera. Having followed a road sign we eventually arrived at the 'Visitor Centre'. In itself not a memorable experience. BUT a few minutes walk away is Juego De Bolas where we enjoyed a deeply satisfying culinary experience! The boss greeted us, recognised that we were English, and Immediately, in English, recommended BBQ'd Pork Chops! Great choice - with warm bread and Mojo sauce to start. When the beautifully moist and succulent chops arrived they were huge! What more could you ask than great food in a stunning mountainous location?

I'm regretting not having asked them if they sold Mojo sauce. After having theirs, I didn't like any other version (I found the other versions a bit too sour for my taste) of the famous sauce.

Coming from India and being a vegetarian I had only limited options, but their warm bread with Mojo sauce was more than enough for me. The portions are very generous. Where I'm from, an entire family (of 4) will probably eat less meat in a day than what one person eats here per meal!

People who ate with me also liked the food and it's quite economical. The service is not bad (keep in mind they are locals and do their best). The restaurant itself isn't very sophisticated, but considering it's out of nowhere, it's quite good. They have clean restrooms.

We stopped at this restaurant after we couldn't get at table at Mirador de Abrante. Had gambas al ajillo, grilled cheese and fried peppers. Everything, including the house white wine and especially the gambas tasted great.
