I always go here in tenerife because of the location and alright the food is not amazing is acceptable but over the last few years the service has deteriorated and when we last visited we waited for 25 minutes for any service despite asking two or three members of staff for a menu and a drink. We eventually left and... More

Excellent situation with great view across Bahia de las Vistas Beach so always quite busy but far better to visit during the day to give a golden opportunity to people watch. Service & quality of food not up to the same standard as previous visits but may be the mind plays tricks as we review our experiances, the setting of... More

The choice of food for breakfast was very good. Staff was friendly but very casual dressed. Don't rate it for evening food as its like a British Pub Menu.

We have been to this restaurant many times and almost always enjoy it. It is well located overlooking the beach promenade and serves good food- we more often than not go at lunchtime but it is also perfectly good for an evening meal. Unfortunately the service this year was extremely poor- the staff were offhand almost to the point of... More

Situated next to Compostela Beach, this was an ideal restaurant for a light lunch overlooking the beach, and good for people watching. The salads we had were fresh and delightful - would happily return here!

I've eaten there numerous times in the past, but this time was a joke. From the moment me and my friend sat down, they were making rude comments to us. They even referred to me as "boobies" when talking to each other about our order. The worst was when a waiter came to take our plates away. He stood over... More

Had difficulty reporting because Arona is the region not exactly the spot. Much effort to report this quality food and super position. We have used it for many years for coffee and snacks, walking from the Arona Gran. Now we continue for dinner whether fish or meat or Italian dish. Always pleased, may be the hypnotic view. Returning again tonight.... More
