Simply a must

We were fed up of the standard holiday food and asked for a recommendation from the hotel, wish we had done that sooner. Lovely atmosphere, followed by even better food at vey affordable prices.

A very busy restaurant, a reservation is a must. Really good selection of fresh vegetarian and meat dishes. Excellent value, very reasonably priced good wines. Helpful and friendly staff. Quirky interior with walls filled with comments from happy customers (good sign). We loved all the dishes but especially the grilled asparagus, the honey crusted aubergine slices, the prawns and the... More

This is my third visit and it's definitely gotten better with time. My last trip I celebrated my birthday there with friends and the owner went out of his way to make it memorable and he remembered us when we arrived this year. We had a table outside and it was quieter as it was a bit cool. You need... More

Was a bit lucky as we where able to get a table although we had not made an reservation. Overly helpful and service-minded they manage to arrange a table for the four of us. We ordered 7 tapas dishes although we where I formed five would be enough for the three adults and one child. Few dishes worth mentioning is... More

If you like authentic Canirian Tapas Restaurant, this is the place to go, (beware you have to pre-book) but worth it. The restaurant is located 10 minute walk away from canter of playa del Ingles in San Fernando, it is small & quant. Food & Wine quality excellent. The owner (Oliver) very helpful the menu is limited but well worth... More

I have been eating in this place several times and it is never disappointing me! Atmosphere is unique and cosy and the food is the best in Gran Canaria. Try for example "cucarachas", canarian potatoes, tomatoes with cheese, jalapeno poppers and pimientos de padron. Restaurant is quite small so table booking is recommended.

I have been to this place over a dozen times and it never disappoints. Yes Wapa T is cool and yumyum, but this long established place is just as good in my opinion, well worth the walk into San F. Glad to revisit each year x

This place was recommended, and as our favorite Wapa, was closed, we tried this one with 6 friends. We had a variety of dishes, all fresh prepaired, but these, except some, were not our piece of cake. Taste and preparation could be more better. Staff was verry kind.

After reading all the good reviews of this place we tried it last night as we wanted a good tapas bar. It was ok but nothing special and very expensive. The prawns in garlic were tasteless, as were the mushrooms. It is a nice looking authentic tapas bar but unfortunately the food does not match the prices they charge. Will... More
