if you want original canarian Tapas, then look no further than this place. Carlos and his family have run this small but large in character for so many years that he is now part of the furniture. Highly recommended is the sardines

We went here on a Friday night to meet a local friend. The service was great, the food was brilliant and clean, they didn't try and rush us even though they were busy and if we had been staying closer to the town we would have gone there every day. Toilets were very clean parking close by.

This is a very small bar/restaurant and mostly the local people go there. They really use daily fresh sea food. There is not a big variety of foods, but doesn't matter which one you choose, all of them were very good! We never payed more than 30 euros for 2 meal and 2 beers. The place is not fancy, don't...
