If this restaraunt was in South Kensington, I'd probably not venture through the door .. if the quality was expressed in UK prices it would truly be astronomically priced. The accent is on fish, its all spark fresh from the the wholesaler round the back and he gets it straight of the boats you can see from the restaraunt balcony.... More

We ate here twice during our stay, and every meal our party had, was absolutely superb. Starters were large, & we sampled a huge bowl of clams, fish croquettes, squid, several salads, including a goats cheese one. Mains we tried included delicious home made pasta with lobster, fresh fish (shown on a platter before choosing) including tuna, whole sea bream,... More

Apart from the disappointment at the restaurant being closed for the first 10 days of our holiday the wait was well worth it as we ate elsewhere in the area and can confidently say again this is the best food on the island. The restaurants fresh seafood and hand made pasta dishes are very good and a range of meat... More

Although Playa Santiago on La Gomera is blessed with many great restaurants, if your thinking about somewhere more intimate with outstanding cuisine then Junonia is where I would head for. On a menu of memorable dishes Owner/Head Chef Fran's hand made pasta is something I will never forget and always look forward to.

Having done the fish course to death in the week I spent on the island I decided to try a ravioli dish with a pear sauce. It was without a doubt the best pasta dish I have ever been privileged to eat in a restaurant. I was in awe at the quality and presentation of the other dishes that we're... More

This restaurant has a nice view of the sea. It is primarily a fish restaurant and the fresh fish is good, I am used to good sea food and so for me the restaurant was OK but not spectacular but for a small place like La Gomera it was a cut above the others. There is no childs' menu so... More

Picked this restaurant on appearance, nice balcony overlooking the harbour, and a friendly atmosphere. To start we had a watercress soup and a fish soup, both clean and light. Main courses were a perfectly cooked tuna steak with a coriander sauce and a classic spinach and ricotta ravioli with butter and sage sauce. My 8 year old daughter was served... More

my wife and I ate at Junonia whilst on holiday in the village. High expectations due to good reports on this site. Ordered meal and the wrong wine was delivered. After a lengthy wait I was served the wrong starter and had another wait for the correct one to arrive. My main course of rabbit was ok. My wife had... More

For the best fish and the best service in Playa de Santiago, be sure to book at Junonia. If you just turn up you could well be disappointed. We had two excellent lunches and a dinner here in January. The food is even better than ever, especially the local fish, while the presentation has moved into top gear. Wines, including... More
