Food was so delicious. Would love a piece of that roasted goat kid again. Service was warm and relaxed. I think that the hostess ( a german woman) really loves her job - it seemed like she is the type who makes everybody feel like they are her favourite customer. The place is cosy, beautiful and there's much interesting decor... More

We visited for lunch and ordered some meat / cheese platters from the menu on the table and a fish dish from the main menu. We met some resistance from the waitress because she believed the platters were for sharing (although it didn't say this on the menu!) but we eventually convinced her that the men in our party had...

Good food, wine and service. Dress code, Spanish lessons and bookings are not required at this time of year. I booked a table over the phone. My Spanish came courtesy of Google so I was really grateful to the patient man on the other end of the line who managed to explain that they only open for lunch without using... More

We drove to Betancuria to have lunch at Casa Santa Maria, but got much more than that. The restaurant looks nice, offers both a pleasant atmosphere and food cooked in uncomplicated yet sophisticated ways. We sat in one of the courtyards surrounded by flowers, quite a contrast to bare rocky landscapes for miles around. The road a few miles either... More

We visited this quirky restaurant as part of a day trip from Lanzarote. We booked in advance and were made most welcome on arrival. Food portions were generous and the flavours robust. The house special of braised kid didn't disappoint and the recommended wine was excellent. We were pleasantly surprised by the bill. We would happily return.

The service was superb, the lady who served was helpful and even gave us a cloth bag to take away our unfinished wine. The manager was not rude to us, in fact quite pleasant. Food was special and good value, we had three excellent courses for 23 Euros each and the wine was reasonable. Best food I have had this... More

Thursday 27th February 2014 Betancuria is a very pretty little village. It has beauty and happiness all around it but all this beauty and happiness is destroyed by one man. Why, after all the review comments concerning this man is he still in a position of running this restaurant? Words fail me. I can uphold everything said about this man... More

Betancuria was the only bad experience we had in exploring Fuerteventura so we did not stay long there. Our guide book recommended this restaurant, so having looked at some pleasant souvenir stalls we made our way to the restaurant for lunch. When I walked in I was met by an extremely unpleasant man who was obviously in charge and who... More

This is a bit of a tourist trap right outside the church on the square in Betancuria. It is an authetic taven / restuarant, and inside is stunninly beautiful. However, it attracts tourists who just want to come in and look at the inside, rather than eat. This is not a museum, but a beautiful restaurant, so take the time... More

We had eaten in this restaurant during a previous visit to Fuertaventuria and enjoyed our meal so this time we returned with two friends, unfortunately to a totally different experience. A lone waitress was attempting to deal with every table in the restaurant so that every course took forever to deliver extending the lunch to three hours. One main course... More
