Would highly recommend this restaurant for a great family meal - 7 of us went and not 1 person had a bad word to say about any of the dishes. Overlooking the area of the old town harbour where the locals play bowls, it's a lovely restaurant to sit and enjoy a relaxing meal soaking up the local atmosphere. I had the chicken faijitas which I really enjoyed, others had the steak which looked delicious, and another member had a mixed hot seafood platter which they raved about. Portions huge and prices were very reasonable.

In the Old Town in PDC, it’s a long established restaurant and always gets busy later in the evenings, it’s right beside the bowls alley which can be good fun to watch while relaxing with a beer after dinner.

The staff are friendly and the food is good and reasonably priced. It serves a general mix typical of restaurants in the area.

We had 3 steaks, two with pepper sauce and one Mexican sauce. If you don’t like too much sauce ask for it on the side.

The steaks were slightly over cooked, I would have liked my medium a little less well done.

All in all a solid restaurant and decent food, it would be hard to go wrong here.

This restaurant, which is in the old town, is one of my favourite restaurants in Puerto del Carmen.we paid a visit on the first night of our holiday and it was like coming home! Same staff, same menu- brilliant. I had a beautiful pizza and hubby had he tapas. Washed down with a glass of beer what could be nicer?. Great atmosphere, you can watch the locals play bowls while you eat. All for 27€- great value and great selection of food. Will definitely be back.

We were in Puerto del Carmen for a two week holiday in August and came across El Ancla. The food was lovely - best paella I have tasted! Service was great and staff were very friendly and attentive. They had a great selection for kids. We enjoyed this restaurant so much we returned on two other evenings.

Looking forward to our visit next year when we are back in Puerto del Carmen.

The food here was excellent with a great choice of menu and kids can get suitable dishes too. Service was spot on. It’s a lovely spot too and you even get to watch the bowls at the weekend!
