I went here twice on a 7 day holiday to lanzarote , I have never tasted food like it , everything was delicious , fresh and extremely more-ish. Not to mention the cocktails are superb. Wasn't the cheapest place to eat over there bit it's worth the money. I would fly back just to eat there.

This was a mistake. Which I think can happen in the best of places. As soon as it was brought to Daniella's attention (... More
