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... read 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.

This place is always busy. We were the first diners the night we went in but it was full within the hour. The staff are very on the ball and we found the service excellent. It's got a family restaurant vibe and I save the chef come out and help move tables. They specialise in a metal hat that is... More

Had the juiciest steak here. A lovely bottle of Rose wine and an amaretto coffee. The ambience is tactile. Loved it. Lovely staff. Food perfect. Highly recommended.

Good service and a menue that satisfies most people. Try "Meat on a Gallow", that is a social way of sharing a good meal.
