“Ok, good location, tad expensive.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2012

A very serviceable Spanish restaurant. Fresh fish, reasonable service. Nothing to write home about but fine. Average, let down by being €€.

“Not impressed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2011

We speak fluent Spanish, but the server insisted on English, which of course resulted in his forgetting/missing our entire fish order. Obviously we didn't go there during dinner for cheese and meat plates! Nevertheless, we left disappointed and hungry. Won't be going back.

“A must when you are in Garachico”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2011

We have been staying at a Hotel only 50m away and there really was no need to walk any further. The restaurant is not fancy bit rather traditional. I enjoyed fried baby squid, my wife had grilled mushrooms as a starter. Both was great but was beaten by the main course which was fresh fish we picked from a an iced display. Fresh'n simple, exactly as you expect it, a true recommendation. Definitely not our last visit.

“Good but not special – closed Saturdays”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2011

This restaurant has a rather small inside but a larger terrace on the main square. The food is good but not special. Unusually it is closed on Saturdays but open every other day – including Sundays and Mondays when alternatives are limited.

“Excellent fresh fish”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2011

Situated on the corner of the town square in Garachico. We ate there one evening, and went back for the next two! On each occasion we had a different, equally delicious, fish dish cooked for us.
The fresh fish of the day is on display (you can more-or-less choose your particular fish which they then cook for you) ... One evening, we actually saw the fisherman arrive with the fish!
(We would also recommend a very nice wild mushroom starter.)
The restaurant was quite busy each night, even though it was weekdays, which is always a good sign! Although it was busy, and there was only one person serving, they were working hard and the service was both prompt and friendly.
Excellent value for money.
