“Beautiful Ambience and good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2012

There are not many restaurants in Santa Cruz de la Palma (as distinct from bars), but this one is well worth seeking out. Although there were tables outside in the sunshine on the Avenida Maritima we ventured into the internal patio, which was a beautiful place to have our lunch. The service was outstanding despite the lack of English, and the food well presented and good. The menu had both local and Spanish dishes and there was a selection of fresh fish on display to be chosen if preferred (some of which were unrecognisable to a Brit). When asked the waiter recommended a local dry white wine which was very drinkable. We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch and recommend this restaurant to others.

“Good alternative”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

La Lonja is not far from La Placeta and is a good alternative to said restaurant. The menu is somewhat more international, the service slightly better and the it has a larger selection of wines, both from the island and from Spanish mainland. We especially loved the ambience of the place. Warmest recommendations.
