We had dinner in the end of February. We chose a selection of 4/5 tapas and all of them were really tasting. The staff was very kind and helpful and the atmosphere was perfect for a romantic dinner as well.

We visited here for beer and tapas in the afternoon, and it fitted the bill perfectly. The raw tapas are on the bar inside, and the waiter was very helpful explaining what they all were. The fried baby squid were amongst the best I have had anywhere. Next time, we'll go back for an evening meal.

We've only used this place in the afternoons when they're selling beer at €1 & jugs of sangria @ €4.50 😄 during this time of the day they also do some VERY cheap burgers, hotdogs, wraps etc to fill the gap. They do a full menu but we didn't try that. Maybe this year!

Saw this mentioned in a book on Lanzarote restaurants and decided to give it a try. What a find. A simple bar and restaurant - very Spanish. The main waiter was very friendly and was helpful regarding portion sizes etc. There were two ladies cooking (and washing up)! What was so pleasing was the simple menu - the tortilla was... More

Has always been a spanish restaurant where english are tolerated rather than welcomed but the food has been better in the past. Portions were small with nothing included. Meatballs were not homemade but processed. Have been there quiet a bit over the years but probably wouldn't choose it again.

Menu also available but if you want authentic tapas choose from the bar.... Freshly cooked, huge potions reasonably priced and served mostly with a smile! No kids menu I get a burger and split it between my 5 yr old twins but ask for it cooked through! Be back soon!

Had our 'Christmas dinner' here when staying at the nearby H10 Lanzarote Gardens, having had enough of bland hotel food. Was amazed (and delighted) to find such an authentically spanish experience in a tourist resort. There are no concessions to tourists so take a phrase book if your Spanish is minimal - try the coca-cola basted chicken which is delicious!... More
