“Friendly Welcome, Good Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

Although staying in the south of the island, we did a day trip to Puerto de la Cruz and found this restaurant purely by chance. As it was lunchtime we sat outside overlooking the bustling square. It was nice to be able to look at a menu without being pounced on immediately. A friendly lady took our order, asked if it was our first visit to the restaurant and asked us to look at the interior before we left ( beautiful canarian style with a retractable roof, very airy feeling). Drinks service was very prompt( much needed in the heat!) and the meal was nicely served. There were 4 of us, each ordering a different main course, and all 4 professed themselves to be very satisfied with the quality of the food. Prices were not unreasable and we will very happily return there in June when we next visit Tenerife.

“Loved it so much we went back”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

This restaurant quite literally saved our taste buds. The food at our hotel was so appalling we decided to eat out. We were drawn to this restaurant by the pretty seat covers on the tables, and the fact that they let you look at their menu without pouncing on you.

Sat down overlooking the lovely square and were greeted by very friendly staff. The menu is very varied, and whether you want a snack or are ravenous, there is something for you. I really wanted to try Paella and asked if they could make it for one (said for two on the menu). This was no problem and they warned me it would take half an hour. It was well worth the wait. Obviously cooked to order, the most delicious Paella I have ever had. My partner had the pork dish and was so taken by it, we went back the following evening and he ordered it again.

We found the staff really pleasant, and they obviously recognised us the second night and were utterly charming. Wish we had found this restaurant on the first day of our holiday.

We will definitely be going back to Puerto de la Cruz, and will try to get a self catering apartment near this fab restaurant.

“Nice inside”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

Food was a little above average - the rabbit was very boney and if cooked slightly longer would have made removal of the bones a bit better. The starter of prawns in advocado was very tasty.

“Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Situated beside the Plaza de Charco this is lovely restaurant. A very pretty situation - the dining area has a fountain in the middle and canarian balcony overlooking. Staff very helpful and welcoming. We have eaten here a number of times and the standard has been consistently good. On Saturday evening there is live music.

“Volcanic Rock Steak”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

went to this restaurant on recommendation of our rep. Lovely little place with outdoor seating area near the port and looking at the pretty square. Staff were really helpful and attentive, we ordered the volcanic rock steak.. Fillet steak brought to you raw and you cook it to your liking on a super hot volcanic stone! Great experience, and the meat was brilliant and came with canarian potatoes, vegetables and a selection of mojo salsas... All for 16 euros! Would reccommend just for the steak!

Tip, steaks are HUGE so can take a while too cook, butterfly yours through the middle and it'll cook to tender perfection!
