tucked away in a small corner of los gigantes{its down an alley on your approach to los gigantes squcare} we had our special 45 years wedding anniversary there, its not cheap but for something special its ideal, the staff are so attentive and the award winning chef produces superb food, for that special treat try juan carlos.

If you want a treat on holiday then this is the restaurant for you... Situated in the centre of los gigantes in a pretty little square .. Food always so beautifully presented and cooked with great skill and attention to detail... We eat here at least twice each holiday ... Steak delicious... Little petit fours always so good......

An excellent retaurant with a very good selection on the menu. It is a little more expensive than some other places but the quality of the food and service is worth it. Portions are well presented and the waitresses were lovely and helpfull. An excellent choice of restaurant for a special occasion.

We opted for Juan Carlos as our final restaurant on our holiday, having done ten or so other restaurants for dinner on previous nights. High expectations were being served by us and we certainly weren't disappointed. The restaurant is set back off the street in a lovely picturesque tiny square almost on it's own. The setting is wonderful. The restaurant... More

For some fine dining, I doubt you could do better than this restaurant. We chose from the a la carte menu but were treated to two 'extras' that were just delicious. The quality of the food, the presentation and the service were all outstanding. I had what I believe to be the most delicious dessert I have ever tasted -... More

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.
