We are visiting La Hierbiata every time we are in Santa Cruz. It's an extraordinary restaurant in a small street in the city centre. The food and drinks are local and superb and the prices are moderate

Nice location in a quiet street. Waiters only spoke Spanish but we managed to order without any issue. Customers are half local, half tourists. Fish was very good. Reasonable prices.

We had an excellent meal here, and I don't hesitate to recommend it. I enjoyed it so much that I didn't notice that two 20 euro notes were stuck together in my wallet, and overpaid substantially, without realising it. The staff (plural) came out to find us as we were walking away, and gave us back the money, which we... More

We waited more than 1 hour to get sit while all Spanish people were given a table before us continuously. After 1 hour waiting we waited 30 minutes to order, they ran out of everything and service was really unfriendly. We were served a starter while 2 were forgotten, so we had 1 st course and then the other starters.... More

We visited Santa Cruz during carnival and we were already impressed by the lively environment. We stopped for a Sunday lunch at La Hierbita and it was packed. The staff was really efficient taking our reservation, although they did not offer us any drinks while we were waiting, which was the only downside of the visit. Once a table was... More

Authentical food served in old canarial house - great interiors, we liked the most second floor, several independent rooms for 2-4-6-8-12 and more people. Great for private dinners. Good simple food. Generous portion (consider sharing with your partner ) .Low prices and friendly service make the place our favorite. Reservations recommended, as it is very busy at lunch (14-15) and... More

Had a great lunch there with my family. Beautiful building. Friendly staff. My octopus and potatoes was the best meal I had during our holiday.
