View and service better than the food

This restaurant has an unbeatable location at the head of the beach, great for people and sunset watching.

The Paella of the House was excellent, but seafood paella on the second... read more

I had diner with friends at this restaurant to enjoy the view. It is the only decent restaurant located on the beach in Maspalomas. Unfortunately only the view is worth the trip. Service was rushed and not nice at all which is rare for this island. I had Tagliatelle Marinera which cost 13 euro, 5 euro over was is charged... More

A great place to refuel before & after walking along the beach. Limited menu, but food was very good. Both food and drinks are reasonably price. Good friendly service

Highly recommend it as an alternative to the Hotel and... More

My partner and I just enjoyed a beautiful evening here with wonderful food. Having eaten here a number of times I wasn't disappointed this time either. It was wonderful. The seafood we both enjoyed was delicious and we rounded off our evening with cocktails to the sound of the waves brushing the shore but feet away. Heaven!
