“Gtreat food - poor service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

Despite being a regular visitor to the area, this was my first visit to this restaurant on the back of recommendations from friends.

Whilst the food was well presented, hot and tasty, the service was extremely poor and it was clear they were short staffed - so much so that we didn't feel we wanted to put them to the trouble of ordering dessert or coffee.

Will give it a try another time on the back of the quality of the food - though only after checking they have enough staff waiting on!

“Frozen”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

Went with my husband he had the four cheese pasta which he said was nice, however I had the lasagne which was still frozen in the middle. I said to the girl she apologized said she would get the chef to make a new one and when I came back it was the same one. Unbelievable.

“Best pint of Estrella Damm ever....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

We've been to Dabda's many times in the past 6 years on our annual trip to GdS.
Just love the place - great ambience and very tastefully decorated.
Staff very attentive and offer friendly, efficient and professional service.
They serve quite possibly the best superchilled lager you will find in Tenerife - not cheap at 3 euros ( when others nearby sell at 1 euro), but well worth spending that little extra for the quality.
Tapas is varied and delicious and meals are beautifully presented as well as being of the utmost quality.
The spinach ravioli and cheese board with honey are divine.
Looking for ward to our visit next year!
