We've been here on our vacation. The service was friendly and very helpful but the food is wanting. The sea food was over cooked while the stake quite nice. Sorry to say few of us had a soft stomach afterwards...

Any fish, any shellfish all fresh at £ or ££. On the coast road in San Andres 5 mins from Santa Cruz. All locals and very quiet during the week. Nothing to look at but worth visiting for the fresh fare.

Absolutely fantastic! The food is amazing. Me and my boyfriend went there to have a dinner on Friday, we ordered only fresh pescado. The waiter was professional, carefully, nice, kind and try to understand our preference to suggest us the best dishes. Full felling our wishes.
