Went here twice while we were spending one week here. Food was really nice, seasoned well and good portion size at a fair price. Restaurant itself is very pleasant with a great atmosphere and lovely surroundings. Staff are very helpful and attentive and will happily explain the menu. I would recommend booking as it gets very busy and on most... More

Ambience / Decor - nice welcoming and relaxed atmosphere. There are tables available either inside or outside on the terrace. Our preference is the terrace where it is very light and airy, and perfect for soaking up the atmosphere of the Safari Centre. The decor is starting to look very tired and could really be doing with a facelift. The... More

Food & service were great, the place has a lovely atmosphere & the staff were more than willing to do whatever they could to make our visit one we wouldn't forget. It's just a shame that we had to wait over an hour for our main courses. However, the restaurant did everything they could to rectify this & couldn't have... More

Ate here twice in the 7 nights we were here. Courteous, friendly staff that were only too happy to help. A nice chilled atmosphere with sumptuous food & quick service. Hats off to the staff as they really do bend over backwards for you. Would thoroughly recommend this place to everyone should they visit this part of Tenerife.

Having read the other reviews we made sure to book, which was a wise move as the restaurant was very busy. Food was great, would even go as far as saying one of the best Chinese meals I have had, and the service was very good for such a busy restaurant. My only nag is that it wasn't a very... More
