“Superb meal.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

We tried El Timon by chance, and I wish I could have the same luck when playing the lottery !.
Alain, our waiter ?, was great, and the food was cooked to perfection !.
Our two friends, my wife in her wheelchair, and myself all enjoyed our meals immensely !.
Would reccommend to all !.

“Excellent value, great views, lovely food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

Our 2nd visit to this restaurant and we visited last night. I'd forgot how good value this is. A family run restaurant who are extremely focused on giving their customers a positive experience - home cooked lovely dishes with friendly, attentive staff. Definitely be visiting again, thank you.

“Average food and service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013 via mobile

Stumbled across El Timon by accident. After the huge build up by the man on the pavement outside telling how good it was and the rave reviews on Trip Advisor we went in for a meal.

This restaurant we found to nothing more than average in good, quality and service.

Wouldn't recommend or go back

We have been coming to El Timon for over 5 years now and it never fails to please - the menu has developed in sophistication and the staff as always are lovely. A fantastic restaurant in a wonderful setting - what more can you ask for.
