“Top Class Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014

Down by the Marina has to be one of the best restaurants in Playa Blanca if not the best.
Excellent Service, top quality food cooked to perfection in a beautiful setting.
The Langostine Risotto is highly recommended

“Consistently good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2014

Ate out as a family of 5. Everyone enjoyed their meals. King prawn and mushroom risotto was lovely as was the sea bass and the kids burger - still pink in the middle rather than being overdone. Daughter loved her spaghetti bolognase. Drinks were good as well and views of the marina are beautiful.

“Fine dining”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

Quality food cooked very well indeed. Iberian pork and rabbit off the bone were delicious. Service was excellent but the house red wine, as good as it was, was rather expensive. Also, compared to the vast majority of other establishments in the area there was nothing to start or end the meal via the way of a small, signature token.

“Simply the best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

We ate here during our two week stay and it stands out from a quality, ambience, setting and service perspective. We chose the tapas and we're not disappointed, beautifully presented and served with a care and commitment to providing an excellent experience. We selected 6 tapas in total and the thing that stood out for me was the consideration the staff put into bringing the food, not overbearing you with all the tapas simultaneously but selecting the right dishes to complement each other at the table and with impeccable timing.

All in all a memorable experience that stood head and shoulders above our other culinary travails.

“first class tapas!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

Travelled from corralejo on the lanzarote express to visit this restaurant and it was worth it! Tapa choices were excellent staff very eager to please the black pudding, the prawns in garlic oil and the Serrano egg and potato were all delicious three was plenty between two. Next visit will be in the evening time as we can only imagine how spectacular the view must be at dusk.
