It is only a basic beach bar who serve food. Their daily special is usually fresh fish and the week we visited it was Seabass served with potatoes and salad for 9 Euros. It's excellent with good and friendly service, unfortunately its getting busier and you made have a wait for a table. Do not be put off by the... More

Went for lunch one day and had a lovely meal. My husband had the fish of the day and I had sardines which were both delicious. The setting is beautiful.

We found this place by accident. A wonderful simple menu of fresh food all cooked to order. Not the fastest service but who is going anywhere. It is on the beach so sit and watch the sea.

A fantastic spot for a casual lunch, coffee, beer, glass of wine, brandy etc etc. Selection of tables and comfy chairs.

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!
