Come here for a nice meal, or just for cocktails, just 3 metres from the sea. Not cheap but a lovely spot.

.....but the service leaves a lot to wich for. We had different fish diches that were all excellent. The location is great but you dont feel that the staff is especially interested in you as their guest

A place to be seen at sunset. Great place for people watching. The Restaurant is very clean. Food was good but not fantastic Service is a little bit disinterested It is too expensive for what you get..but you pay for the location not for the food

This restaurant is located just five meters from the seaside. Most restaurants are were simple and not to clean. This is a good exception. Toilets are clean, restaurant is clean and the staff is friendly. They offer a menu of fish and meat dishes and some fresh lobster straight from the tank. The fish meals are all nice. The vegetables... More

Had a great lunch here of spicy garlic prawns, ham, cheese and tomato pizza together with a tasty tomato and onion salad. Great place for people watching although their live music is a bit depressing.

In our recent holiday on Gran Canaria we eat twice at this restaurant. On both occasions the food was top quality, both in quantity and the excellence of the ingredients. The salt cod dishes are a stand-out for me. Salt cod croquets were very, very tasty as a starter and the quantity would for a good snack as well. The... More
