Paella, salmon tartar and delicious white wine! It is considered expensive but the quality of food and obviously the wine is more than worthy to try.

Food was good, wine selection was excellent, service and mood was o.k., we will come again! The location is not easy to find, but with Tripadvisor no problem.

We came for the michelin guide recommended Paella, which met our expectations, but we had excellent strters as well: foie gras, tartare of tuna, scallops with shitake, octopus all very well presented and tasted yummy. The place is specialized in ricedishes, but I got a steak tartare wonderfully prepared, and another got a regular steak with mushroom sauce. Good winechoice.... More

Do you want to a place where the manager and the waiter are arrogant and they make you feel unwanted from the moment you enter? Do you want to see the manager and the waiter grumble and mumble with contempt about you and your guests? That's the place then. Obviously I don't want to rate the food after this experience....

Good food, efficient service. Great wine selection well worth a visit. We went for the paella but once there we found the menu to be a lot more interesting with great seafood, fish and meats. So whatever your fancy give it a try.

Authentic paella in Tenerife. The spirit and flavour of the best rices from Spain. For us this place is a must every time we visit the island and we are always suprised with a new dish. This time we ordered raw tuna cubes, and crab carpaccio as starters, followed by the duck and mushrooms rice for 2 and the fine... More

This restaurant was recommended by one of the staff at the Costa Adeje Gran and we were not disappointed. The location is well away from the tourist areas and indeed the signage and its location on the ground floor of a non-descript block would not have got us through the door without the recommendation. But if you want good quality... More

A pretty much faultless meal – excellent food, at a reasonable price and impeccable service – attentive without being overly fawning or with false friendliness. There was excellent bread which went well with both starters. Cream of vegetable soup was well rounded with no particular dominance of any one veg. On the other plate, red peppers had been roasted to... More
