After reading some reviews for here, I was looking forward to trying it. I hoped to order pasta as I'm not a huge steak person, however they didn't have any pasta and we found that half their menu was unavailable. I ended up with the fig and goats cheese steak which was delicious (despite the fact that I don't enjoy... More

Very good food albeit understaffed. Lone waiter heroic. Wines good but pricy. 3 course with white & red wines €45 a head. Well worth a visit: deservedly #1.

Small place with friendly personal service. Perfectly cooked tuna and some very tasty octopus ink tagliolini. Even fussy children enjoyed it. Well worth a visit.

As La Salamandra has only some 8 tables we stumbled upon a full restaurant in the evening, so decided to return for lunch the day after. We made the right decision! The food was delicious (grilled cod and vegetables), the ambiance perfectly OK and the waiter very very friendly! Whenever I return to La Gomera I will certainly eat at... More

We sat outside here and had lunch, it's in a little pedestrianised side street. We had a tradtional dish whereby fried battered aubergine slices are stacked up with salt cod puree inbetween the slices and a drizzle of the local speciality 'Miel de palma' on top, which was big enough to share and delicious. Afterwards I had a black olive... More

... especially for those who want to take a break from Canarian and Spanish food or try some new tastes. Not very cheap but offers a really creative choice of fusion dishes. We had meats, fish, soups and everything was very original and tasteful. Classy choice of wines.

This is a small restaurant - only about 8 or so tables - but what food! The service is slightly slow but that's because everything is cooked to perfection. There is quite a fair selection on the menu for such a small restaurant. Well worth eating at, at least once during your stay in La Gomera.

The food when it came was excellent but it took over an hour. The waiter was charming but there were not enough staff and he struggled to keep everyone happy.
