From the moment I called to make a reservation, the service was outstanding and very personable. Having worked in the service industry most of my life, I was impressed with the food and the staff. The server we had chatted to while waiting for our table even came out to wave goodbye when we left. Food- Salmon, tuna, goats cheese... More

Had a risotto that turned out to be lukewarm and having a funny texture, way to dense almost like rice pudding. The other dish was ok but lacked that touch. Service at atmosphere is fine.

Ate here twice. Had the mixed tapas starter. Waiter talked us through every dish. Very keen and knowledgable. Every dish was of very high quality. Then had an excellent steak. Second time had very good rabbit as the main coarse. Slightly more expensive than most of the resaurants around but worth every euro.

This was quite possibly the best meal we have had out anywhere as a family. The service was extremely welcoming, and they went out of their way to meet our needs and make us all feel at home. Our party included a vegetarian, a young person with simple tastes, and someone with a food allergy. The sheer effort they make... More

This restaurant clearly puts a lot of energy in constructing the menu: the dishes are original, stay close to the Spanish cuisine but with other Mediterranean and other influences. They try to bring finesse on the plate and they often succeed in this. The whole menu is explained in detail by the waiter (Dutch, German, English, Spanish...wow!) with humor and... More

When we walked in at 8 o clock we were the first customers. It soon started filling up though. The menu is quite unusual as there seems to be an Asian twist to some fairly traditional meals. My wife and I had two different starters and two different mains. All were excellent and portion sizes were good too. The wine... More

We celebrated my sister is law's birthday at the restaurant. She lives in La Palma and had already been to it. We were a party of six. The menu included a variety of dishes and there were also daily specials, several of them, which were listed on the board and explained by the owner. The wine list is not huge... More
