“Charme, service and delicious dining”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2014

A very nice establishment with great service and astonishing view of the ocean.

We orderet a selection of tapas dishes which were all very good, deliciously prepared and the atmosphere was perfect.
For desert the waiter decided for us and we got a taste of a typical canarian desert which was extremly delicious and he said that if we didn't like it we wouldn't have to pay, we liked it a lot.

The very good service continued with a honey rum drink that we did not pay for, but was served to us as a after dinner drink.

It was a very nice evening in a beautiful place with great food and kind service, we will go back there no doubt.

“Better inside”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014

This Restaurant was recommended to us by a regular visitor to Playa Blanca. The outside looks as though it is a tappas bar, but once you get inside it opens up. There is a sea view at the front of the restaurant. We started with Garlic bread and Tomato bread which was very enjoyable, the 3 main courses ordered were: Lamb Leg, Slices of fillet in a marsala sauce and a spaghetti carbonara.
The lamb leg was in fact 2 thick leg steaks which were well presented, served with a variety of veg, rice and delicious chips. The meat fell apart and was very much enjoyed.
The Marsala sauce was delicious and complimented the fillet steak, this was also served with veg, rice and chips.
The Spaghetti Carbonara wasn't very well presented but tasted okay. However we were told that this restaurant was good for meat dishes.
We had a bottle of House red which was pleasant if not a bit on the thin side.

“Great restaurant, food, service and atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

6 of us went for a meal at La Cuadra yesterday evening. It was the first time here for 4 of us. We were all impressed by the food, atmosphere and by really great service.

The 2 waiters were very impressive with their attention to detail. Not many restaurants give you 3 different types of sea salt, or advise people not to "have the fresh prawns as it is not the best time in the season". Their recommendations were spot on - for example Shark goujons with the Black Pork and wine combinations.

An interesting twist was the 2 teapots full of warmed brandy to go with our coffees. This was set alight at our table.

We all rate this restaurant highly.

“Nothing great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

Virtually empty when we visited, had two guys playing and singing, don't usually care for entertainment when eating but they were the best bit about the place, really goo. Service pretty offhand and staff miserable. BBQ ribs would take the lining off your mouth, far too strong, though there was plenty of them and the veg were good. Seabass was ok, wine ok, wouldn't rush back. Would give 3.5 stars taking entertainment into consideration.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013 via mobile

The food we had here was rather bland, my wife's fish was slightly over cooked, my salad was OK, but didn't consist of a lot. After we had started our meal, my son wanted some chips, we asked for them and they arrived at our table within a couple of minutes, good service I thought, until I tried them. They were only warm, limp and rather oily, I think they were left over from lunch, and then just re-heated. The waiter was also a bit of a grumpy person and didn't try to strike up a conversation with us. Nice views over the harbour was its only good point.
