A charming venue with very good food and service

Close to the harbour and built into a cave this slightly up market venue offers a wide range of international and local dishes. Very good service and beautifully served well cooked dishes make this a must to visit during your stay on La Gomera

This unusual restaurant is built in a cave just next to the church which is also built in a cave. You can also sit outside with views to the harbour. There is always a good selection of fresh fish on offer. The atmosphere is really nice. All our food was delicious and big portions. Good value for money. The service... More

We have never been dissapointed here, always enjoyed our meals and the service is good. Try the Chopitos (baby squid) deep fried in light batter...delicious. The fish is fresh and cooked to order. Book as it gets busy.

We had a lovely meal here on the last evening of our stay in Playa de Santiago. The young waiter was very friendly and helpful, letting us see the fish prior to preparation. We sat in the cave as it was cool outside. The fish was beautifully cooked and presented, following good starters of melon with ham and one of... More

The young couple running the restaurant were friendly and welcoming, the grande dame was seated at a table and not dealing with customers - thankfully! The food was nicely presented and well cooked. The view from the restaurant is limited by the boatyard opposite.

We arrived at the restaurant without having made a reservation, The lady proprietor informed us that there were no tables available inside, only outside in front of the restaurant, Rather than taking us outside and showing us the table, she waved in the general direction of the outside of the restaurant and expected us to decide on what table was...

A good place to eat fish in Playa Santiago, and also good value for money. We prefer Junina or Don Tomate, but this place is OK as well. The lady that owns the place doesn't seem to enjoy herself running the restaurant, but the younger couple is very friendly.

we had been slightly disappointed with our visit to this restaurant two years ago but decided to give it another try. Wish we hadn't!!!! The greeting was lukewarm and the service more or less went downhill from there. The senior lady showed no interest in us and presented the bill with an ill grace. The food was also disappointing -... More

Returned here after a few years and found that not much has changed. The restaurant is set in a cave which is quite unique in itself and the food is not cheap. However the lady in charge has little personality and no sense of humour which doesn't lend anything to the ambience. The food is OK without being outstanding. Rumour... More

The menu offered an excellent choice. The food was excellent and so was the service. This is a very popular restaurant and booking would probably be a good idea.
