Quite good

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.

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

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

Almost everything we ordered was very good. The owner is acharming man, serves good house wine and bananas. Nice garden area. They should probably... More

My husband and I have just eaten at this restaurant. The was ambiance just right for us.
