“Great Canarian food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

Food is delicious and great value. Portions are huge. Litre of delicious red wine for €12. If you can't finish all the food they'll pack it up for you to take away. Started with warm bread and dips. Then had prawns in garlic oil, tuna and Escalopes de Pollo. Great restaurant!

“Good food friendly helpful staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

Visited twice during our week in El Medano. Would have been more times but they are closed on Thursdays!

Good food - I had grilled tuna for 6.5 euros. Large house salad was great and a small portion of Canarian potatoes was fine for 2 of us. Busy both nights we were there with locals and people on holiday. Staff were busy but friendly and helpful.

We didn't have desserts so can't comment on those.
