We planned to go to this restaurant on the last night of our holiday in Peurto de La Cruz as we wanted something a bit special and therefore weren't put off by the slightly pricey menu, which offered a good range of choices. We had already selected this as our choice earlier in the day as it was presented very well and had a good vegetarian selection for my friend.
When we arrived we had to wait ages to be seated. Then it took even longer for them to bring the menus and then yet another wait before they came to take our order! We ordered some bread to start which we were slightly disgruntled about as we'd been to a restaurant earlier in the week where we had complimentary freshly baked, piping hot bread with fresh mojo (both red and green). Nevertheless we hoped this would be better and were willing to pay. The waiter (who seemed very rude and thought he was above everyone else) arrived with a bread box and uncovered it and allowed us to pick a few slices. There was no mojo, but only butter and some ‘aioli’ (was very dry and didn’t seem like aioli). When we tried the bread it was hard, cold and stale. We were not impressed!!
The starters and main courses were presented very well but the food did not taste very good at all. I ordered the lamb but it was far too salty it felt like it was burning my tongue. We also had some wine which tasted horrid- thankfully we only got a glass and not a bottle!
It also took them a very long time to clear the plate when we had ‘finished’ (we couldn’t eat the meal) and when the bill (presented in a small treasure chest) came we saw they had overcharged us for the bread! We had only ordered one portion, not two and it was stale, cold and we did not even eat it so you can imagine our fury when we were charged twice! I disputed this as it was unacceptable, and they were very quick to remove the charge which was one positive to come from this experience!
Will never go back to this restaurant again! Very annoyed that we paid so much money for such terrible food which we couldn’t even eat! Especially when a restaurant around the corner was a fraction of the price (less than half what it cost us here) and MUCH tastier- the best tapas we ever ate.
