Small place but there are a few tables outside as well. Delicious sandwiches and at a good price, will return again! Staff are friendly and service was quick.

Nothing much to add to the title - eating at this place is really a must! I went at lunch time. The staff is really friendly and honest (I forgot my camera and got it back).

There are two good places for breakfast in El Cortillo: El Goloso and this one. Our favorite is El Mentidero because of the personal attention. And Canarian breakfast. Just try it !!!!!!
