Just Behind The Seafront

In the row of cafes and market style shops just behind the beach this little restaurant served the best seafood soup I have eaten for many years. Lots of prawns, mussels clams etc in a bisque base.

I came here for lunch and dinner everyday for my week stay in Gran Canaria. ALL of the staff here are welcoming, helpful & lovely people and the food is lovely! Recommended their chicken, cheese & salad baguettes for lunch. Definitely will be coming back here when I come back to gran canaria.

Stopped off here for a light dinner .... What a lovely place this is. The waiters are all very friendly but not overly obtrusive..... they even wave and say goodbye when you leave..... I had a lovely dinner, fillet of sole... and it was cooked perfectly and there was plenty of it. A nice find....

We sat in the bar a couple of nights before deciding to eat here on our last night. It was fabulous. Seafood paella and jug of Sangria. Great service. We got garlic bread 'on the house' as paella took good 25 mins to cook but we knew that. Attentive service and great to people watch. Would recommend.

Nice food, certainly worth the money! Nice to sit there and see the people stroll by. If you want to go to the toilet, you have to ask for a card, and then go downstairs to a kind of "central toilet block", that's a bit ennoying...
