I wanted a hotel near Garajonay National Park as a base for walking and excursions in the area and I chose this right hotel, run by two brothers. Simple and somewhat dated rooms but clean and with the right services. The food in the restaurant is very good, well cooked and cheap local dishes. It has parking directly opposite and is easy to find. Price: 40 euros with breakfast included in double room, single use.
A 2 night stopover on Sherpa self-guide walking holiday. Sonia greeted us after each gruelling day with warmth and wine 🍷. As other reviews mentioned, can be chilly but heater & blankets in basic but functional room. WiFi strength in room sufficient to write and post this review. Food all cooked by mama (the best) with ingredients from the island. Try the goat stew (with spuds and a few veg could easily become scouse) or if veggie/vegan ask for Garbanzas without meat (chickpea stew)
We stopped for lunch after a great walk from the highest point of the Island. The food was pre-ordered by our guide . The veg soup was extremely tasty and very hearty - infact a meal in itself. We had beef as the main which was also very tasty . Note that we managed to avoid rabbit which we do not like after a discussion with our guide . A simple dessert of mousse was followed by coffee . The service was excellent throughout . The only downside was the carafe of red wine which was horrible . All in all a great lunch stop for proper rustic food
After a guided walk from Laguna Grande to Chipude, we were taken to Bar Sonia for lunch. We were pleased to note that there were also a number of local people eating here, and having the same food as us. We started with vegetable soup, with ground corn to add if we wanted to thicken it. Then the waiter put huge bowls of rabbit stew and beef stew on the table for us to help ourselves, together with Canary style potatoes. It was all really tasty, and clearly using mostly local ingredients. The homemade wine was a bit rough; the white slipped down easier than the red! The meal was rounded off with a light pineapple dessert. An ideal meal for walkers!
Good food and service, positive surprise as we did not expect much. Neat, clean place overall. Chicken was really good. Place was empty when we arrived but quite full before we left, still service was good and promt.
