Well I actually can't praise this restaurant enough! The garlic chicken is out of this world. Very accommodating and excellent with children. Amazing view. One of if not the best restaurants in Tenerife!

2 couples and we had a fantastic night out. Chicken, chips, hot crusty bread and salad. What more could you ask for? Well, where do I start. Stevie the owner and host is just amazing and had us in stitches with his stories and jokes all night. Brilliant night out at fantastic prices.
