Try the peppers stuffed with cheese . Delicious. Good croquettes. Fried aubergines a tad unhealthy! Very good value and very pleasant staff. Worth a visit.

We visited this restaurant trusting all the good reviews... what a disapointment! Slow and inattentive service. Heavy and rather greasy food. Overpriced. There are plenty of better alternatives on the island for this kind of food.More

The food was great, the wine was great, and the staff were friendly. You will not leave hungry - the portion sizes were how I like them - large!

The restaurant was full of locals that is always a good sign, we must have been the only tourists. Huge choice of dishes including Canarian local specialities.

The restaurant is located in the heart of the historical city and serves typical canarian food. The food is really nice and the service is good. I recommend it.

This place is worth taking a trip to if you are on the island of Gran Canaria. Fresh, beautifully prepared Canarian cuisine paired with amazing local wines. The place gets full at lunchtime (I've never been there for dinner) so I would recommend reserving. From...More
