Enjoyed the local parrot fish whilst sitting outside in the sunshine with a lovely view! A simple meal but tasty. Well looked after. Muchas gracias!

We ate a simple tasty lunch here that was well cooked and had all the islands local dishes. If you sit on the veranda, the sight and sounds of the waves pounding the shore makes it worth a visit to. The interior is rustic but...comfortable. The beans in saffron with ham and chorizo was delicious. The fish soup was simple but deeply flavored. The salads are fresh and they do good local Frontera white wine and and red choices by the glass. The locals on the table next to us had the fish and salt potato's which were their favorite with the cheese starter. If you want to try the limpets this is the place to come, as many hotels do not do these local delicacies.More

Stopped in for lunch and were served by a pleasant lady who done her best to guide us through the menu which unusually for El Hierro, had English translation. The restaurant has both internal and a covered external veranda type dining areas. We choose to...sit outside and thereafter the faults with the dining experience were of our own making. I eat a lot off fish and as I had never eaten Moray Eel previously, I opted to give it a go. Not a good choice for me personally as it turned out, it is an extremely bony fish and about 70% of what comes out goes back as waste. It takes so long to work your way around it that it ends up cold and even at its best doesn't taste that good anyway. Glad to have tried it but will never require to order it again. My partner ordered a salad and all in all we had a pleasant lunch in a nice setting whilst being served by friendly helpful people.More

If you like to combine a nice view, beautiful sunset and you love fresh fish, nice wine and as dessert a surpise, this is the place to be in El Hierro!

We went here for a meal when we were in the neighborhood. Based on the reviews, we expected to taste great fresh fish since it was close to the waters. Unfortunately, all the food that we ate there were subpar. The calamars were rubbery, peto...and gambas a la plancha did not taste fresh at all. Compared to other restaurants in El Hierro which serve great seafood, this place was a great disappointment!More

We came here a couple of times for squid and chips/ squid and papas arrugadas, and they were great. If memory serves, they didn't have Vina Frontera dry- we had to make do with afrutado- off dry. Apart from that a lovely spot, and inexpensive,...well-prepared food. Lovely service too.More

We had the moray eel and parrot fish outside on the front porch. Nice place to eat. Our choices were both very boney and had to be eaten with the utmost care so we didn't choke on any bones. They were both tasty but very...time consuming to eat and were cold by the time we were done.More

We ordered different marine food for starters and as main dishes and they were of excellent quality and taste. The food orders are taken by the chef du cuisine who asks for personal tastes and options for preparation. A very delicious lemon soufflé with caramel...was served free of charge at the end.More

Local restaurant. We shared a fish which was not on the menu, but recommended by the lady who served us. It was a real treat, prepared with onions and bell peppers.

I saw no "jackasses" there or (the other meaning in Spanish) any "brothel keeper" but just a hard-working proprietor attempting to keep up standards by excluding those who enter wearing beach clothes or without a shirt. It is also "cash only". The comedor or dining...room has space for around thirty people and there were about a dozen when we visited from 19.00 to 21.00 on a Thursday evening. It appears to be a family-run business as we were served by a woman as well as by the male proprietor who was tending the bar. The attraction of this place is its proximity to Las Puntas (which has several apartments) and to the Punta Grande hotel - which used to be the smallest hotel in the world but now is not. Contenders are in Copenhagen and Bavaria but neither is in such an invigorating spot as the area by Garanones - reached by a slight detour off the main HI-5 road near the lower portal of the tunnel. Our meal for two with drinks came to €27. The menu has only starters and mains (we had ensalada and chipirones) but a surprise ending was a pot of chocolate mousse and cream as a postre/dessert. Excellent value and we much enjoyed getting food at an early time after spending much of the day up on La Dehesa and then a dip in Charco Azul - about fifteen minutes drive away. There are no evening transport services but during the day the five services between Frontera and Valverde stop about ten minutes walk away.More
