Decided to go for a lunch in Santa Cruz and we liked the location of La Placeta. This is not the cheapest place but still under average UK high Street restaurants. I had a duck breast with plum sauce and it was probably the best i had recently, cooked perfectly, stayed slightly pink in the middle. The other meal was... More

This restaurant occupies a prime site in the centre of Santa Cruz but that is about all that it has in its favour. The service was indifferent and our meals were poor.

The food and wine were good but the whole experience was overshadowed by the simply awful staff, particularly the young lady - at least the man tried to be less obnoxious. Never again but they have no incentive to train staff as they have a prime location in the centre of town. There are better places to try first.

We really enjoyed the vegetable soup and 4 other tapas. Two different sorts of white wine were both barique, which we didn't expect and didn't like. The service was fine in the end, but english was difficult to order. Value for money was okay for central Santa Cruz, but outside of the city it gets much better.

Restaurant on pedestrian way just off the sea front (not so great) with indoor and outside tables. Staff quick on service and food is good with excellent portions at a reasonable price. We ate in the bar and outside when the first floor restaurant was full.

Centrally located in Santa Cruz with seating inside and out.A busy restaurant serving traditional food of good quality.Clients were a mix of tourists and locals.We visited twice. The first time service was good, the second it was so slow that we left, having failed to receive any service in 30 minutes. It seemed to be a case of severe understaffing... More

We went for dinner and had a good time! We arrived just after a larger group of people and the young waiter with a tattooed arm told us there might be a slight delay due to that. Nevertheless we had menus in no time, got our beverages a minute after ordering them and our food arrived swiftly too. Everything we... More

One hour waiting. When the food finally came it was not as explained in the menu. Guess it was not their best day. Nice place to sit outside but food and service is much better in other locations of Sta. Cruz.
