A fantastic spot for a casual lunch, coffee, beer, glass of wine, brandy etc etc. Selection of tables and comfy chairs. Very relaxed, excellent selections of music to chill out to and enjoyed by all generations. They serve a fish of the day which has come off the boat, along with a range of platters, sardines, squid, salad etc -... More

Don't be put off by appearance from a distance. This shack on the beach at Playa Santiago on La gomera is a great place to chill, eat, drink, linger and soak in the scenery and ambience. It is popular with the locals and easy to see why. Serves a great variety of lunch time tapas, generous portions and excellent value,... More

A must when visiting Playa Santiago. Great welcome and great food. A perfect place to sit in the sun (or shade) and relax! Food is served all day and there is plenty of it! It's very easy to forget time and linger!!

As places to relax go, they don't come any more informal than this. Perched above the tideline on Playa Santiago's shores you can be assured of a welcome from Owner Eric with food served during the day and music as the sun goes down, where people laugh and dance and stay far too long before heading home. Outstandingly good fun!

Not a building of architectural significance but, hey, who cares when the owner greets you like an old friend and the food is to die for. No wonder the place is frequented by the locals. Highly recommended for a delicious lunch at a very reasonable price. Wi-Fi is available after 5pm.You are literally right on the beach!

Known affectionately as The Shack, this beachside spot is good for drinks and food from a limited menu of freshly made dishes. The kitchen is tiny, so order your food straight away or face a wait. The old sofas on the beach must have got too old and have been replaced by plastic ones while tables and chairs are a... More

This is a very basic Beach cafe that is well positioned at the waters edge, Popular for drinks at sundown, it has generally good WiFi, excellent music, friendly staff, and great value. Didn't try the food so unable to comment.

La Chalana is a small, informal bar situated on the sea front and with direct access to the pebble beach and the sea. It's a good place to meet with friends for drinks but I don't usually eat there. It's popular with locals as well as tourists. It's quite a charming little place but the surrounding aera could do with... More
