Impeccable!

This restaurant was wonderful! The restaurant itself is in a weird setting, seemingly in the middle of an apartment block but once you're there it's lovely, set in a nice courtyard, with a view of the sea in the distance. We were there as a group of family and friends celebrating a birthday and... read more

Nice service and perfect food. Nice place at the pool and great view over the water. Hard to find but worth the search.

I'm fortunate enough through work to visit many fine dining/Michelin starred restaurants in the UK and this place for sure compares very very favourably against them. The food and service were both outstanding with the service being perfectly balanced so that you felt 'special' but not 'awkward'. My wife doesn't drink wine and I didn't want a full bottle, so...

Visited on the last day of our holiday and it is without a doubt, the most delicious meal I have ever eaten! I cannot fault anything at all. The food, atmosphere and staff were all amazing - would love to return if holidaying here again.

Having read the reviews on this restaurant, we just had to visit it to see if it was as good as others say. It was! Virtually needs no other comment - not inexpensive but truly value for money and an experience in perfect customer service - even have 'chairs' for the ladies handbags!!!!! We now have our 'last night at... More

All the staff are very professional. The complementary amusees of delicious onion crisps, parmesan bread sticks and eel sliders (the 'bread' was black from... More

We are a family, of four, from scandinavia, that wanted to find the best restaurant in Gran Canaria, for our only gourmet evening of our holiday. And we found it! The whole experience of the tasting menu was without any exaggeration quite remarkable. It was a memorable meal, that we will be thinking about for a long time. We paid... More
