This was a recommendation in the Rough Guide travel guide to Tenerife and La Gomera. It didn't disappoint. We were made to feel very welcome from the minute we walked in the door. The service was friendly and attentive. The food was homemade and delicious....We had the local spicy cheese, anchovies and bread as starters. The main course we had garlic King prawns and a couple of specials. All very tasty. The food was good and the service was excellent.More

We ate here twice. The food was good if a bit variable in quality, but the friendly enthusiastic service made up for that.

We were staying literally 50 metres away for 3 nights and ate here twice. Both times we had fresh fish, which was perfectly prepared along with local wine. Sitting up on the roof terrace with the ocean on one side and the mountains on the...other was idyllic. The service was really friendly. Our favourite moment was discussing the menu - is the salmon local? No. It’s from Tenerife! Lots of humour - we felt very welcome and well looked after.More

Based on reviews posted on TripAdvisor, we drove across the island from Playa Santiago to try this restaurant as our favourite restaurant in Pastrana now closes on Sundays. Opens at 1pm and was quiet at first but by 3pm the restaurant was full. Good choice...of fresh fish specials. My sea bass was beautifully cooked. Friendly staff. Overall, a great experience. Would be going back this Sunday but they are closing for their annual holiday.More

The first time I had fish in Spain that wasnt completely dry, the lubina was really good! A very cosy ambient with nice warm light, which is also unusual in Spain. Nice staff!

We went here on a Saturday night, it was fairly busy. I got sea bass and my wife got the house salad. Sea Bass was cooked to perfection, and the salad was out of this world. I'd also recommend a barraquito. The server was nice...and friendly and the atmosphere was great.More

We dined a great catch of the day fish and a chicken salad. The fresh Orange juice was great. The rooms in the basement as well the great scenic view rooftop terrace were great!

We were welcomed very friendly and got to chose on of the 9 tables as we were quite early. The owner was very kind and patient as she does not speak English and our Spanish is very mediocre. The menu was in Spanish, German and...English, so that made it easier to choose. My husband loved the rabbit, I really enjoyed my salmon. The food was not very special, but tasty and reasonably priced. We could even pay with debit/credit card, which we didn’t expect. Definitely worth a visit!More
