Helpful staff despite being very busy despite being very busy. The three of us shared the Fish of the Day platter which was hot fresh and quite delicious.

Nearly didn't eat here! I e-mailed the address supplied by La Gomera Travel & got an 'ok' to my request for a table, however no such e-mail was received as they told us they didn't have one! They were fully booked, feeling sorry for us as I was somewhat puzzled they put an extra table out front for us. Thank... More

We were very much looking forward to our visit to this uniquely situated restaurant, and had booked 48 hours in advance, what a disappointment ! Yes... It is a unique place to find a restaurant, stuck in a cave by the side of a road beside a harbour in La Gomera. But I suspect that for too long these guys... More

We visited during lunch time and ordered the paella. The two waiters were really nice to us and especially to our daughter. The service was quick and the paella was worth the wait - full of fish & seafood! Would absolutely recommend.

We visited this place New Years Eve. For now unknown reasons the front desk at our nearby hotel recommended it. Well - it looked interesting as it is built in to a lava cave. But that said the rest was awful. We ordered an octopus dish which turned out to be of no taste at all. And when you overcook... More

We had dinner. The service is friendly. The food was okay but not as good as other restaurants rated 4 stars in la Gomera. The restaurant is built in a cave which is really nice. Prices are to hight for what it is. There a way better restaurants in Playa de Santiago.
