There's no menu, so basically, you eat what they bring - a hearty portion of chicken, fries and salad. Cheap, simple and delicious. A better version of the KFC, I'd say. The owner is a lovely chap from Glazgo. They are always... More

Love this place and always visit when in Tenerife. Steve is an absolute comedian whose wit and humour never fail to have us laughing. Ask him about sailors in Cuba! Food is simple but fresh, tasty and plentiful. Excellent value - we went 3 times last holiday and the bill for 4 of us was never more than 47 euros... More

The owner, Steve has a brilliant concept here which works well. A simple menu of beautifully cooked chicken, plain or spicy, great home made chips and an accompanying salad. Generous portions and friendly service. Not to be missed!

Very simple menu to choose from,salad homemade chips and chicken,spicy or plain. Big portions served. Stephen is a crackibg guy with high spirit. He should be on stage. Try his Irish coffee. Great value for money and you will go home with a full stomach. Brilliant night out
