Best garlic prawns

Great service, and had the best garlic prawns, very comfortable and relaxing terrace, it is at the end of the marina, but well worth the short walk

We found this restaurant via Tripadvisor last year and it was so good we went there twice. This year we returned and our welcome by Anabel was warm and friendly, also her son Ignacio has joined her as front of house. As usual the food, service and surroundings were stunning. A fabulous place to go for something different and away... More

This restaurant is simply head and shoulders above any other in Playa Blanca. We had 2 meals on consecutive Wednesdays ( they are only open Monday and Wednesday) and these were far and away the best of our holiday. Annabelle is an amazing host, very welcoming and knowledgeable and her husband a superb cook. Add to that the beautifully designed... More

Don't miss out on this restaurant - it's well worth a visit. Wish it was open every night. Fairly expensive but not in comparison to some of the other local restaurants, which are a disappointment in comparison. If you''re stating at the hotel volcan it's a 5 minute walk.

Found through TripAdvisor, we were very impressed with the standard and choice of food and service. They are only open Mondays and Wednesdays due to the owner's health. He is the chef and a great one at that. His wife is the service and she is exceptional, so a good package between the two. Best meal we had this holiday.... More

Wonderful food and excellent hosts. Quality of food was superb with every item on the plat beautifully presented and individually tasty. My wife had a salad to start and I had asparagus with smoked salmon. Gorgeous ! Followed by lamb and suckling pig and then great puddings. More expensive than other local restaurants but definitely worth it. 110 euro including... More

This restaurant is a must visit if you are in Playa Blanca. It is only open Monday and Wednesday so it is essential to book. The food is amazing and the wine list superb. It is a little more expensive than the rest of the eateries but well worth it for the experience. The dramatic views of the mountains make... More

This restaurant is very special, it only opens two days a week but offers a Mitchelin star standard food and experience. A beautiful room with views into the kitchen, husband cooks and his lovely wife serves. Well worth a visit.
