Certainly a stunning view, think it was 4€ approx to get into the restaurant with the outside walkway to see the view but if you don't want to do that you can see from just along the road. We went in and had an ice cream and sat taking it all in. Interesting Cesar Manrique architecture again. Enjoyed it a... More

Tried to visit here on a previous holiday but there was heavy mist and to their credit the attendants stated not worth entering. Returned this time on a bright sunny day and it was certainly worth it. The views across to La Graciosa were spectacular and well worth the 4.50euros entrance fee. A great viewing area carved out of the... More

Very unusual building with an exceptional view of La Graciosa island from the top. Make sure you take your camera

Love the view of the island across which we visit the day before. Good for a drink and the view. Gets you to put the island into perspective

What a view on island La Graciosa. When you decide to visit that attraction pay attention on weather. It can be pretty foggy up there and it can ruin your pictures and visit. So plan your visit of Mirador del Rio on mostly sunny days to get most of it. Enjoy the view.

The views of La Graciosa are amazing and the building blends into the volcanic rocks quite naturally. Try a smoothie as you linger and watch the ferry plough across to the island. Well worth the trip

The views from the café and the viewing points are superb, they take your breath away. It's a bit of a hairy drive but take you're time and it's well worth it. Looking down on La Graciosa is a sight not to be missed. It actually brought a tear to my eye.

we were initially not impressed that were had to pay (4.50euro each) to go in. But it was most definitely worth it. Beautifully designed visitor centre showing the view off in a very impressive way. Different levels of viewing platforms and I was even able to fully enjoy it despite being afraid of heights! So glad we went. One of... More

An amazing space carved into the cliff with fantastic panoramic windows and views from the restaurant area. Loved the ceiling lighting artwork. Typical Cesar Manrique design inside the seating areas. The best was yet to come when we went out onto the balcony level and then the upper level. The views across the bay to La Graciosa where breathtaking although... More

Perched on the cliff top overlooking the island of La Graciosa is the viewpoint and café of Mirador del Rio. The café has huge windows and a gift shop above. Above that there is a flat roof.
