Lovely evening

Lovely restuarant on the sea front. We all had the mixed grill and it was beautifully cooked, the steak was very tender and the chorizo was spicy!

tried this place after reading reviews on tripadvisor and was looking forward to trying the flambed gallows, however we sat outside and when we ordered were told that all their speciality dishes are only served inside due to fire regs apparently. We opted to stay outside as it was a good warm evening after some cold wet nights and the... More

Lovely location and that's it. Good over cooked and boring menu. Massively overpriced given the quality and quantity provided on each course. One fish Kabab (cooked dry) and salad and chips - 14.50, compared with a massive plate of grilled fish at Avenida for 8! Don't bother

Great choice on the menu, in a fantastic setting. Would recommend you eat in the restaurant (not outside) as you have more to choose from on the menu. Some dishes can only be served if you are inside, and these are the best (house speciality) dishes. We had a superb meal, would recommend the house special meals....

We visited here as a couple at the start of our holiday. Absolutely beautiful setting right by the sea. I had the seabass and my partner had the fillet steak- both were very fresh and cooked to perfection. Great service and lovely meal- you must visit when you are in Corralejo.

Try the Sombrero dish to cook your own meat and the prawn starter. A good mix of Spanish and tourists, very friendly staff.

We wanted a meal on our last evening with a varied menu...something to please everyone. Great menu, lovely lamb and fish specials. Super steak! Fried aubergine started in honey will stay in the memory. Well worth a visit and lovely setting over the bay.

We visited here early one evening, the food is good as was the wine. The scenery is lovely and a seat by the water is very relaxing. We really enjoyed our visit and would return. A lot of the menu along the water front are all the same but the menu here was a bit different with some nice specials.
