The waitor is very inpatient and comes to us after giving the menu. The waitor Also dropps 3 glasses within one hour, and if you ask me that is very clumsy. Otherwise the food is ok not the Best not the worst, just ok.

Food was good with wide choice of dishes. However, the restaurant rather lacked atmosphere with its formal white tablecloths compared to the basic local cuisine on offer. Service was friendly.

We eat there three times during a week at La Restinga and thought it the best of the restaurants in this town, Typical Canarian food and fairly predictable menu with a slight emphasis on seafood. Friendly service and pleasant atmosphere.

Very few guests, though it was low season. But the paella was good, and the prices reasonable. Average service with not the most entusiastic waiter. But OK.

Easily the largest restaurant in the small fishing village of La Restinga Coped easily with the large group of walkers and divers I joined. Plenty variety on the menu and local wines available of good quality. Friendly efficient service. The restaurant is clearly used to catering for large groups

I had dinner in La Restinga for the first time and none of the subsequent weeks meals came close for quality. I had steak in a "whine" sauce which was delicioius.

Disappointing and expensive. They served huge plates as a starters for the two of us and didn't tell that would be enough for the whole dinner. The fish quality was simply average, specially being 50m from the sea.

Large restaurant/bar just off main seafront; outside tables virtually on the road, although not much traffic. Usual Canarian suspects on the menu, including lots of lovely fish, although couldn't bring myself to eat the ones we'd seen earlier in the day while diving. Mojos are good. Generous portions. Very entertaining conversation with waiter (mixture of Spanish/English/German) resulted in most of... More

There are so few restaurants in La Restinga that comparison between them is hard. Dishes here are always nicely presented and the portions are generous. Fish and meat courses are good and the salads are the best in town. They don't do draught Dorada (beer) but the bottles and glasses are always nice and cold.

Thank Dave-n-Fran
