Waitress surly and indifferent. Food NOT as described on the menu........fish certainly not filleted, and in no way fresh....fresh from the freezer more like, and tasteless to boot. Far better places to eat in this little village.

This restaurant at the end of the street served very good food - we had grilled tuna and a steak - and it was all delicious. The building is set into a little cave (a Cuevita) which was a novelty, or you could eat outside.

we had a nice meal here and found the service was fine, although we were quite early and initially the only couple in the restaurant. We had the catch of the day which was very good and some Gomerian wine which was also fine. We would certainly return.

Having visited La Cuevita in previous years, it was on our list once again for this years holiday. The location is convenient, but after that it went progressively down hill. The service was appalling, with long waits between courses and we eventually gave up trying to order desserts. The female waiter could not have been less interested, even though the... More

We visited La Cuevita several times. Friendly welcoming service. The fish of the day, often vieja, was superb - as was the sweet of the day, often tiramisu. We aso enjoyed the prawns and langoustines.

Friendly staff and good value, not haute cuisine but competent cooking in a unique setting. Outside tables very close to the road.

This restaurant is in a great location and very atmospheric, basically built into a cave. It gets very busy so it is well worth booking. We went on the strength of the reviews on trip advisor and were disappointed with our food. The starters were lovely - I had the local watercress soup and my husband had grilled octopus. Both...

Fresh, well cooked fish and a pleasant atmosphere. First ate here some six years ago and much improved. Four adults and one six-year-old had a lovely meal...

Best food was the bread with two dips. Garlic chicken definitely not fresh -tasted like it had been cooked some time ago and reheated in oil to which garlic had been added - the whole lot overlooked and the chicken tough. Meat and vegetable stew comprised large chunks of tough meat (no idea what the meat was) sitting in a... More

We ate here 2 nights during our week on the island. The first night we had paella (pre-order). It was seafood paella and it was delicious. We also had local Gomeran white wine which was good. The second night we returned was a Monday when a few of the restaurants competitors close so needless to say they were busy but... More
