I'm sorry to say, I went once on my own and sat outside and was ok, returned another time wiht an out of town visitor and were treated as if we were a giant inconvenience for being there, rushed to the point of stressing to eat fast enough, contsantly being watched and questioned by the waiter and essentially pressured into...

I have been to this restaurant many times now and never disappoints, good food, in busy restaurant frequented by locals as well, old canarian house in a back street off the main high street of Calle Castillo, worth a visit if you are in Santa Cruz

Did wee bit of prawns and about ten litres of gin and tonic. Very cosy place with great atmosphere, can sit outside and watch the little world go by. Food is absolutely gorgeous.

asking for advices to passersby - I hadn't check on tripadvisor in advance - all natives recommended this tavern located in a small and dark alley instead of many other modern and trendy restaurants You can see on the main streets. They were right. Good service without frills, good food and generous portions

This was our first experience with Canarian food and were fortunate enough to come across very tasty introduction with waiters willing to explain not only the various dishes but how they were made. Well worth visiting.

Greetings my travelling chums, ‘Santa Cruz de Tenerife’, sounds like it could almost be in South America. My first visit to the capital city of Tenerife, Canary Islands, and it is a ‘proper’ city, in fact it reminded me a bit of Lisbon Portugal, only in miniature. I had a full day to roam around its streets see the sights.... More

Typical tourist fraud !! First : long waiting time and staff not at average sympathy level as for Santa Cruz style! Dishes are not cured and heavy dressing are used and for sure fresh ingredients are a dream! So strange to found one place so slovenly where I think that Owners are not worried! Price completely high , considering food... More

Probably the most disappointing experience I've had in a while. Awful food in a dirty old house. The waiters were nice but didn't seem to have a clue about they where doing or to care about it.

The service was very friendly and the red tuna recommended by the waiter was excellent. I would have rated it higher but I asked for wine and was told the choice was red or white. For a restaurant whose food was this good I expected a wine list.

Thank Mark D
