As the name suggests the restaurant is in a cave and so is the kitchen. As the weather was hot we sought a table outside but were told that the tables were reserved and in order to have an outside seat it was necessary to reserve a table for another night - this we did. returning two nights later we...

Based in a roadside cave next to the harbour. This is a busy restaurant with good food, but service can be a little slow. Worth a visit though. Book early.Also used by the locals.

During our two weeks holiday on this wonderful island of La Gomera we visited this restaurant on 2 occasions. The visits were both busy Saturday nights and the staff were hard working, attentive and very helpful if you tried to communicate with them.

The four of us stopped on for a drink before lunch. The place has been open for at least 20 years, first by original owners and now by their sons and daughters. The fish is fresh and the beer is cold. Well worth a look in.

We sat outside next to the road and would probably sit by the restaurant IF we returned. The food was delicious but the staff seemed unhappy and the owner almost threw our main courses onto our table. This spoilt what was our wedding anniversary celebration.

The food was good. Steak, fresh local fish, tuna in mojo sauce. All very tasty. Unfortunately some of the staff seemed grumpy and lacked finesse. One staff member was more helpful so it probably depends who you get.

Thank Robert E
