Great place for Canarian tapas

During a recent trip I actually went twice to this place once with one colleague on recommendation of our hotel for a place open on Sunday evenings and with Canarian food, then again, some days later, with a whole group of people brought there by a local. The place is quite busy usually and larger... read more

We went here on a friends recommendation and we weren't disappointed. The food was delicious and plent of it....local Canarian dishes and we were spoilt for choice. The cost for five worked out at 20€ per head, including starters and drinks....fantastic. Definitely in my must visit again list

I went there on Tuesday night and I was quite surprised to find it quite busy at this time of the week and the year. Staff was pleasant and helpful. Food was very tasty and cooked in traditional way (which is very hard to find these days). Also, the wine I chosen was quality too. Also, the ambiance is very... More

I like the food at La Hierbita. It's typically Canarian, but of high level. In general I'm not a big fan of Escaldón, but here it is particularly good... Not to talk about Ropa Vieja! Between all the Canarian restaurants is one of those I like most. Suggested.

A chance find on a hot Canaries day. Nice to sit outside in a quiet street and enjoy authentic Canarian food. Nice decoration in the interior in cool surrounds if you prefer to get out of the heat. We tried local fish (a bit like salty whitebait, but better), paella, patatas bravas (served with lovely fresh chilli and green salsa-like... More

We enjoyed a dinner in this atmospheric restaurant. The food was good, the wine was good, the place was busy and alive. The service was good, and the price was very reasonable. Recommend.

four of us turned up hoping to try the food that was rated so highly on here and was told the kitchen was closed. returned a couple of hours later, was sneered at and shown the door. Avoid like the plague.

We had fish (cerro) that was prepared in a simple, tasty way. Nice housewine and nice interior. All a tourist wants:) And at the end a low price.
