Situated in a great spot in Corralejo very well decorated and with a great outside dining area overlooking the sea. The food was okay, as good as other places but the service was a little hit and miss. I particulary liked the little touch of a welcoming drink and appertizer whilst looking at the menu.

Had a meal here at the end of November 2014 and was not impressed. Food was just ok but the service was terrible and to polish it off had the cheek to add a service charge to the bill. We were eating out for the hole week of our stay and it was the only restaurant to add a service... More

I can hardly believe that the bad reviews relate to the same place as we went to - but I suppose they do. The restaurant is in a superb location, right on the front next to the street, so you have great views one way and can observe everyone passing on the other. My starter of carpaccio of grouper was...

We had to wait 15 minutes for receiving the menu, even after requesting it two times. After the order it took a long time to serve water and a lot more for the fish.

Worth walking towards the port for this restaurant. Nice fresh fish of the day and a peaceful seafront location. Service was efficient and the menu is competitively priced

On deciding to go to this restaurant we noticed on the menu that they did "Chateaubriand" for 2, this was for us and it was a very good meal and very good wine !! The staff were excellent and so very attentive to your every whim !!, Would definately recommend having a meal here and will definately return

Went for meal with friends the service was good, nice complimentary drink and nibbles. We wanted Canarian potatoes but only got jacket potatoes, all the meat was cooked as our liking and plenty of it. Sweets were good and drink on the house to finish the evening.

The view is great, right by the sea at the harbour. Our waiter was very friendly. Unfortunately, the fish was terrible and not fresh. Same with the vegetables. At home I would have refused to eat this.

This restaurant is in a great location, right next to the sea. This was the reason we decided to dine here. I have to say this must be the only restaurant in Corralejo that does not try and get you to come in. It's just the opposite, we waited to be seated for 5 minutes, with waiters constantly walking past... More

We can only say what we experienced, which was great fish, nice service and ambiance, good value and delicious house wine. We ordered a fish platter between the two of us. Beautiful fresh fish, well served and we couldn't finish it all. Nice waiter, friendly and helpful.
