“Beachside shack!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2014

If you ever get to LaGomera ,go to playa Santiago . Get down to an old shack on the beach ,is fab for midday tapas. Lovely guy serving ,with suggestions for combining dishes etc and the portions are great. Music is just right for an afternoon chill out ! Location is probably one of the best I have visited,and done a few!!

“Relax and unwind”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2014

A must when visiting Playa Santiago. Great welcome and great food. A perfect place to sit in the sun (or shade) and relax! Food is served all day and there is plenty of it! It's very easy to forget time and linger!!

“Chillax!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

As places to relax go, they don't come any more informal than this. Perched above the tideline on Playa Santiago's shores you can be assured of a welcome from Owner Eric with food served during the day and music as the sun goes down, where people laugh and dance and stay far too long before heading home. Outstandingly good fun!

“Brilliant little eatery!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014

Not a building of architectural significance but, hey, who cares when the owner greets you like an old friend and the food is to die for. No wonder the place is frequented by the locals. Highly recommended for a delicious lunch at a very reasonable price. Wi-Fi is available after 5pm.You are literally right on the beach!
