This restaurant is fantastic! If you are in the area you should definitely book a table and go. The food is fresh, expertly cooked and really well presented. We visited this restaurant twice during our weeks holiday and on both occasions it was consistently good. Look forward to coming back at some point in the future.

Rarely do I link the word "joyous" to fine dinning but this is an exception. Is it really fine dinning?? Yes and no. Table cloths, polished cutlery and small portions on the degustation yes... but no unpretentious silver service nor strict dress code nor a cheese cart in tow. This family run restaurant is helmed by two brothers and a... More

Perfect meal from start (two sets of amuse bouche? You're spoiling us!) to finish. This meal had the attention to detail of fine dining, along with the presentation, in a pretty, relaxed and comfortable courtyard setting. We don't know the local wines (and have been struggling to find them) but this place has a broad range and we got a... More

From the moment we arrived we knew this was going to be very special. Oh and We were correct in our assumptions. Service was perfect. Seating intimate. Food divine. Please do not miss this absolute gem of a restaurant. We just can't believe how this has no Michelin!

Gourmet food is good, but very expensive and with limited menu. The site is poor and the interior a bit poky.

We came to this restaurant last year after reading good reviews and we weren't disappointed. Having enjoyed the food and service so much last time we decided to go again on our last night this year, it was even better than we remembered! What a treat! Would definitely recommend pushing the boat out to try this place- it's worth every... More

Every time we go to Los Gigantes we visit this restaurant, even though we stay in Los Gigantes Hotel half board. This time my husband and I had our daughter with us. We all loved our meals I especially like the Canarian black pudding - this is to die for! My husband had lamb and my daughter had steak -... More

Previously booked and quickly shown to our table. Only one fish dish and vegetarian main dishes available which was disappointing. Starters only had 2 fish dishes. Extensive wine list - chose red wine and sparkling cava. The cava was too warm and kept bringing wine back to try which was not given long enough to chill. Choice if different rolls... More
