We had great expectations, but despite a very nice hostess the food itself was in fact below average.
My wife had fishplate - most of it dry tuna and some mussels. Myself, I had rabbit that was ok - but could not eat all because it was far too salty. We saw that Esperanto had a good score on Trip - do not understand why, however. Not our lucky day, I guess.
Got a free Jäger though.

Late afternoon lunch - we were led by the reviews however when we looked at the menus we were a little concerned. A gorgeous tagliatelle with chicken dish and a grilled goats cheese dish later - we were converted. Lovely wine , ice cold beer and an outlook over the beach and harbour - just the thing ! Thanks

Valle Gran Rey on the Canary Island of La Gomera is not a gastronomic destination. ..with the exception of two outstanding establishments...one at each end of the strip that stretches from La Playa at one end and Vueltas at the other. Esperanto opposite the port and family beach could qualify for a Michelin star. The ambiance is warm and welcoming the service is impeccable and the food is totally delicious and assembled individually with extraordinary creative flair. It is advisible to book in advance because unsurprisingly Esperanto is very popular. And as a bonus by international standards the prices for such high quality are very reasonable.

Esperanto brilliantly combines relaxed surroundings that emphasize personal touches with very high standards of very well executed cooking. There are Middle Eastern flourishes as well as locally inspired dishes. It makes a nice change for a restaurant in Valle Gran Rey to focus on vegetables and fresh herbs, while dishing up superb meat and fish courses. The choice of wine was very good, and the desserts were out of this world, especially sticky toffee pudding. The service was attentive and friendly and even greeted us in Spanish, even though the clientele is mostly German-speaking. If you sit outside, you can enjoy views of the harbour. We were happy to sit inside though. Esperanto is absolutely worth visiting!

Very nice lamb balls and fantastique beef. You need to book in advance because lots of people know how good this food is and how personal and high EQ the service is.
