I'm a massive fan of TripAdvisor and consult i whenever i go on holiday. I think the listings need a bit more work (on the app certainly) and the main reason i say this is that this restaurant did not show up for us when looking for "Italian" food in Los Cristianos. For that reason, we spent forever trying to find a different restaurant and only "settle" for Ma La Luna when we were too tired to continue searching.
What a result!
The restaurant has a chilled and elegant setting even though it's located on the balcony of a mini shopping centre and the staff are very attentive. I ordered the home made spaghetti with Prawns and Rocket and was quickly informed that actually they had run out of rocket - expecting to be offered alternatives such spinach etc i was stunned when they offered mussels and other seafood as an accompaniment too! This was if anything an "upgrade" from my original choice so i eagerly accepted!
For starters, we chose the Bruschetta with ham and cheese (it has a much more exciting italian name but unfortunatey the name eludes me for the moment!) which was just delicious. They make their own bread in house so I would be hard pressed to find it elsewhere, which is a real shame.
My friends ordered the home made lasagne and a standard bolognaise and when they dishes were served we knew we were in for a treat. The rich aromas and presentation are top notch and my "upgraded" pasta was to die for.
We left fully satisfied and my only regret is that we wasted all that time looking for a different restaurant.
- The restaurant is largely "open air" seating so even if you don't see an ashtray on the table. there is a good chance you will be sat next to a smoker. If this is a problem, pick one of the inner tables.
- Definitely get a starter!
- Ignore the "standard" pasta options. If you want pasta, go for the home made!
