Good food and friendly service

Simple dishes but tasty, good quality and well prepared. Not expensive. 4 euros for a kids menu and average 10-12 euros for a main dish. Friendly service. Cosy restaurant.

Visited here twice on our week's hol in Corralejo. Food stunning, nice "family run" feel about the place.Advise booking as it's not very big and can get busy.Get a table in a corner, out of the way of other diners passing by.

Thought we would try somewhere different on a return visit to Corralejo. Did not start too good as sat next to toilets at the back. A lot of meals seem to come with French fries, not our preferred choice. Meal was ok but nothing special, mixed grill a bit small.

Lovely atmosphere. We had one of the speciality sharing dishes which was very enjoyable. House wine great value for money. Plenty of seating inside or by the waterfront. Staff really lovely and friendly. Wish we hadn't discovered this place on the last night of our holiday or we would definitely have returned

Visited this restaurant last year to try the house specialities (The Sombrero and The Pirates Gallows) which were a superb experience. However we were puzzled as to why it did not register higher on Tripadvisor. We returned twice this year and think we discovered the reason. The Pirates Gallows and the service on our first visit was again good but... More

We went for a meal here on the advice of the staff in the hotel we stayed in. The restaurant was very crowded, but the staff were excellent. We enjoyed our meal - I had a skewer and it was very good. My husband had sea bass and he said it was very good as well. The Sangria was good... More

Went here last night and whilst the food was very good (maybe except 1 starter - anchovies and Parmesan) the service was poor! Very slow, took about 15-20 minutes to order our drinks despite 3 people coming over hurriedly to tell us they has fresh Seabass whilst passing the table and disappearing again. The girl serving us very somber and... More

Seasoned travellers with over 20 years in corralejo and this is the best we have been to - the quality of everything - service, food, wine and ambiance is at a level unsurpassed not only in Corralejo, but many places (we go abroad 5 times a year)

Came across this restaurant which was busy all night but able to seat our family of 5. Service was excellent. We opted for the pirate menu of Pork and steak which comes spiked and then set alight at the table. Certainly an experience. Delicious food would definitely go again.
