A enjoyed a good dinner here meeting the owner who also produces the house wine — the tinto is excellent with more than 5 grape varieties. The dining room is simple and elegant, homely, popular, with a wooden bar area and at least 2 dining rooms and a terrace; in spite of its being rather upmarket, it is a good... More

A varied and attractive menu, large helpings, good wine, friendly and cheerful service and overall very good value for money. We ate there 4 times in 7 days without getting bored with the menu

Judging by number of cars in their parking every night it must be one of the most popular places in the neighbourhood. And it is really very nice. We had 2 dinners and 1 lunch there.

My husband and I have just eaten at this restaurant. The was ambiance just right for us. The tables are set well apart so you are aware of background conversation but not able to hear every word of the people on the adjacent table. Service was just right - enough time to choose your food but once ordered the starter... More

This restaurant is not in Los Llanos, but just outside Todoque, a small village. You can inside or outside. The food is well cooked and presented, although we thought the portions were generous, to say the least. Service is slow, but if you want speed, go to a popular hamburger restaurant!

A bit of a tourist trap; a tad too expensive; a little too many German inspired foods; the pasta we ordered was underwhelming; service too slow.

Excellent restaurant, personal service, superb food. I had the goat, no fat, minimal bone, loads of top quality meat in a wonderful sauce. My wife had a superb sea bass. Perfection and worth returning to La Palma to eat again!
