Great food, great staff

Had a couple of lovely meals here. If you can get a table on the balcony overlooking the sea it is a better view than overlooking the Barbacoa. Not too expensive and staff remember what you drank last time you went. Greet you like a long lost friend or member of the family. Would go again next time... read more

This really used to be the best restaurant on the island - think it changed hands but still had real potential. What disappointed us was that the chef doesn't seem to have quite the passion of the previous morrocan owner - whilst the meat is well sourced it is not cooked as well and the advertised homemade chips are frozen!...

I ordered the Canarian potatoes to start which can't go wrong but we're still poor. One of the orders for starters didn't even arrive then came after everyone else had finished, a mistake that can be acceptable if the main is top notch. Two steaks were ordered for mains; one with garlic sauce, one with peppercorn sauce - both with... More

We have just had a beautiful meal in El Brasero. €82 for a family of four including a bottle of bubbly and two rounds of drinks. My hubby and I both opted for steak and the kids had a pizza each. My steak was so large I had trouble finishing it. I opted for a medium - well done and... More

For the last ten years I have returned to this restaurant to eat, the food is absolutely lovely, the menu is rather extensive and you could be a while deciding what you want but you won't be disappointed (I don't think anyway). On a downside as this restaurant is so nice it can be very very busy and sometimes they... More

Ate here several times during our stay. The home cooked paella and chateaubriand are a must try. Definitely the best place to go in the Europa centre

By far the best food and service at Europa. The guys always greet you with a warm welcome. They not only remember what you drink but how you like your steak cooked. Can't rate the food and staff highly enough. We ate here many times and always consistent

Owner Jaimie (pronounced Haime) is a lovely guy and looks after his customers well. The service is great and food lovely. When busy you could wait a little longer but you know it's fresh then. Try the fajitas and chocolate fudge cake which are yummy. Well done Gringo 😉
