Tucked away on a side street this place is an absolute gem. From the effusive welcome to the free end of meal drink via some amazing tasting food my wife and I had a great evening thanks to the sheer care and attention that goes into everything. We chose a range of tapas from the menu and were delighted by... More

If you want a laid back no frills experience with just great quality food and service at extremely reasonably prices then this hits the spot. Jan & Del are great hosts and we enjoy a meal here every time we visit Tenerife, I would encourage you to do the same.

We were going to a show in Adeje, the restaurant doesn't open until 7.00 but, via phone conversation Janis, the co-owner offered to open early. Beautifully appointed setting, varied menu, excellent food at reasonable price and we reached our show in plenty of time. That's what we call service. Many thanks Janis and Delyn

Although the staff is very friendly we were very disappointed by the food. We ordered courses that are not that difficult to prepare and yet the meat was a bit burned and stale, the seafood was not fresh and had sand in it (quite a bit of it). The vegetables were good. The card reader wasn't working either so we... More

Although this restaurant is not located on the more fashionable plaza it is definitely worth a visit. The food is freshly made and delivered with a smile. Jan and Del make you feel very welcome and I can honestly say that of the various restaurants that I have tried in Alcala this is my favourite. In the last two weeks... More

My lucky stars and insatiable hunt for unique local places during travels helped me discover it -- absolutely warm and magically friendly atmosphere with fabulous food and heart-warming conversations with the proprietors Janis and Del. I thoroughly enjoyed fish of the day platter, on other evenings--meat or vegetarian platters, while various tapas with enticing flavors and artful presentation kept coming.... More
