“Beautiful setting overlooking the sea”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

Very good restaurant. The staff are very efficient and food is also very good. The location is very relaxing listening to the waves as they roll in over the beach nearby.

“Good restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

Nice food, good service. Fresh fish in large quantities. We also had salad and patatas arrugadas. Everything was nicely presented and the price was reasonable.

“Pull it Down!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2012

Sorry, but it's restaurants like this that simply need to be Pulled down and replaced with Quality, fresh new & clean establishments.....Gran Canaria is full of Plastic junk restaurants like this and people want change...

We visited here early one evening, and to be honest, i just knew that we had made a mistake as soon as we sat down.
The restaurants does enjoy a lovely sea front position, but to be frank, Thats it!....Do i really need to explain about the Food, Service & shear lack of quality everywhere....Look if your wanting cheap and cheerful meals served, no class, atmosphere or service, come here....If you want Class on the other hand, fine food, good service and atmosphere, go to one of the other restaurants that I've reviewed on here in Gran Canaria where we live......It's going to take time for Gran Canaria to change, but it's what the public want, not out of date 70-80's style.....
Hello Gran Canaria, IT'S TIME FOR CHANGE!

“Top Beach-spot but no good restaurant”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2012

The spot this restaurant occupies should be for a decent establishment.
At the end of a beach boulevard it is inviting you to sit down here and enjoy
a nice lunch drink or dinnner.
However, the service is quite slow and the food is not really very good
So just sit down, have after some waiting a glass of wine and
depart to enjoy a meal elsewhere.
