Very nice place

I liked this place, my husband was less keen. Not expensive for what i thought was a slightly upmarket place (linen tablecloths, yay). I loved my spaghetti with prawns and thought there was a good selection of drinks. However, being picky, i could not taste/see any peach content in my peach... read more

We had one evening meal at La Mariposa...and it was delicious. It was beautifully served, the staff were friendly but inconspicuous, and the food divine!

We ate here 4 times and each meal was excellent. It's a little more formal than other restaurants nearby but great food.

Very good menu with some imaginative dishes. Good cocktail list and nice service. You might wait a little for your food but it is freshly prepared and worth the wait. We loved sitting outside watching the sunset - very romantic!

The restaurant is situated by the road so is easy to access. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The menu offers a lot of choice. We both had the vegetable curry which also had fruit in it. It was delicious. For desert we both had cream caramel which was homemade and was superb. We would highly recommend a visit.

We ate the fish plate for two persons. The fish was not fresh, very obviously (if you know how fresh fish looks like and tastes) and it just was not that tasty. And for that quality it was extremely expensive. We paid in total 44 Eur for the fish plate, two soft drinks and one potatoes. I don't know about... More

Restaurant halfway the Road linking Tazacorte To Puerto Naos, in Todoque. Canarian and "international" (whatever) cuisine. Been here twice w/ partner. Traditional dishes were best. Rabbit & Fish = more Than okay. Expect To Pay between 30 and 50€ for two persons. Lovely terrace. Not bad @ All.
