Visit here every time we are in Tenerife. Great value seafood served in a rustic,friendly manner. Limited choice which makes it better as the quality and quantity never varies. Difficult to find but well worth the effort

I had the octopus and my girlfriend had the sardines, and thats what you got, a whopping plate of just that, no garnish, nothing. perfect, we just shared the tomato and onion salad which... More
