This restaurant is a little way out of town but worth the short walk for a very good location. The views across to Tenerife being excellent. Good food and the service very good from friendly staff.

Everyone we spoke to said this was the one restaurant to visit so against our better judgement we booked an evening meal. First impessisons were the total lack of ambience. The staff were just trying too hard and it didn't come off. Having said that...More
