My wife and I have visited this restaurant on several occasions and have never been disappointed with the food or the service. We have always been encouraged by the fact that many Spanish people eat there and if our experience is anything to go by, I'm not surprised.

The fresh fish was perfectly cooked and the papas arrugadas (local potatoes) with the mojo sauce was delicious. Very friendly service. The house wine was very good (local wine from Lanzarote).

Great food, a bit fiddly dissecting the fish but it was worth it. I may ask to have the fish filleted next time. The staff were very attentive and I have no hesitation going back, even if I have to tackle a fish or two

I went there for a quick lunch with my friend. We got two portions of tapas and two glasses of coke and payed about 18 €, which I deem a bit too high. Food was okay, the waiters seemed unnecessarily busy. Also, we got the impression that they didn't appreciate us as guests very much because we did not order... More

Was given in the most splendid surroundings. Fresh fish a plenty, salads, pasta and the most helpful service to boot - the waiter even boned the fish platter for us!!! Do try it, oh and by the way, the views are stunning too!

We went there for a quick lunch before going to el Parco National. We checked on Tripadvisor the reviews and we choose this restaurant. We set inside, as outside there was no tables available, but this was not a big deal. The menù is quite short, with no many choices. We asked for the Paella, but they said that the... More

Came here as I fancied trying limpets and what better place to go than a place named after them. We received a warm welcome from some lovely waiters and sat on the terrace next to the road. The road isn't busy and you can see the sea so it was a really pleasant spot for lunch. The waiters were so... More
