Good

Just had a quick bite in this restaurant. Located right beside the beach. Do not sit to the front if you do not want to be offered a 'Rolex' watch etc by the street sellers. Enjoyed a lovely pizza.

Date night! kids are in bed, so time to dress up and go to one of the best restaurants in the area food is superb if you chose wisely - seafood, galician cuisine in particular, is really excellent friendly, relaxed staff make the night memorable

Lovely position right on the sea front and lit by candles in the evening. An alley-way with huge cacti on either side of the entrance. The staff were rather slow in serving; it seemed to us that there were not enough of them and the cocktails we had were not very strong. When we went back a second time we... More

Visited here with some friends for lunch..........location by the beach is lovely. Large spacious restaurant, even serenaded with some music, and friendly waiters. Clean crisp white tablecloths...........service was very good, and the food was excellent. I sampled the 'Spicy Wok, Beef & Prawn with sweet chilli sauce'........quite spicy, just how I like it, served on a bed of noodles, which... More

Visited with my wife for a lunch after walking the long Maspalomas beach. Ordered tuna tartar with avocado, a fantastic meal. Service was not top notch though.

Great beach front bar and restaurant. Loads of staff. One of the best pizzas we have ever had (tasty and thin base). Wonderful to overlook the beach and sea.

The location of the restaurant right on the beach is really nice, but the relationship between cost and quality of the food is very much important. While the quality of the entrees was good, the costs compared to other excellent restaurants, is far from proportional. The Paella was just too far from being reasonable and was not even near any...

Right on the beach, modern and pleasant decoration, so great location. Food? We had fish which was fresh and well prepared but uninspiringly presented with next to no vegetables. If you want friendly service this is not the place and the prices are relatively elevated. With a little effort this could be a superlative restaurant as it is not a... More

Had Saturday lunch with Spanish friends last weekend The restaurant, which is right on the beach, was crowded but service was very good. They specialise in fish dishes and the quality was very high.

This modern looking restaurant was recommended to us by a local taxi driver and we had high hopes of true Canarian charm, having grown tired of the generic food being served in our hotel. Upon arrival we noticed that the restaurant was of modern design, and decorated a tasteful white. The staff wore blue polo shirts and resembled the Thompson... More
