We visited here after having a stroll around El Medano and were not disappointed. If you can, book in advance as it gets very busy. Popular with locals and tourists alike. The food portions are generous and good value. But most of all the food...More

We really enjoyed our meal here, we had garlic chicken and grilled tuna between us. Both tasty and very reasonably priced. The restaurant was busy but the staff were calm and in control. The service was faultless. Would highly recommend
