Very popular with the locals, this is the best fish restaurant we've been to in a very long time. The entrance is at the back of the building where you also find a carpark. Don't expect a menu as the fish is laid out on a counter and you choose what you fancy. Everything's freshly cooked in front of you... More

The place was recommended by a taxi driver as the best seafood and fish place "where locals go". Because it is really a "very local" place, it was not on the list of recommended places from our hotel. But when we mentioned to the hotel that we were going there, everyone was giving a lot of "thumbs up" as the... More

It was a real experience to come to this genuine small town fish restaurant in the countryside in Orotava. First we had boiled Octopus arms that our host did cut at the table and flavored with balsamico and oliv oil and a bit of pimiento, so good. With that we had Escaldon de gofio (like a porridge) with Mojo Verde.... More

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... More

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...
