Lovely fish

This genuine fish and seafood restaurant is really worth a visit. Next to the Atlantic ocean with seats both indoors and outdoors you can always find a suitable table. The waiter was very welcoming and the service was perfect all through the dinner. A warm roll was served with a tasty dip together... read more

We visited the restaurant on a very busy Sunday lunchtime. It was packed both inside and outside and we had to wait about fifteen minutes for a table. The restaurant was busy, and a buzz with conversation giving it a great atmosphere. The service was efficient, friendly and attentive particularly as the staff were so busy. There was an excellent...

Loved the position, looking up along the gorgeous beach and views over the sea. Good seating outside and inside. Vast selection of fresh fish, good portions and authentic feel.

The most commonly ordered restaurant dish in Morro Jable has to be the local fish, plainly served. All of the local restaurants will offer this option. This is served in either of two ways: one with garlic and the other without. I would recommend that you try it without initially, as I find that the strong flavour of garlic is... More

Ate here twice. Good fresh fish. Sole a bit overcooked. Papas arugadas not very wrinkled but good flavour! Prawns and garlic good and plentiful. Service good.

This restaurant has one of the best locations along the seafront in the old part of Morro Jable. The tables are nicely presented with table cloths, although the building itself is a little dated. The meal portions and prices were both reasonable. Many of the restaurants along the sea front offer similar menus, and it was no better or worse... More

Took a day trip to Jandia - recommended to visit the old village for lunch. Spotted La Laja - great location right on the sea shore, looked professional with attentive staff. Don't be mislead - the food did not reflect the image of the restaurant - don't eat there! On the other hand would definitely recommend the "La Isla" in... More
