For many years we used to go to La Camella to Meson las Rejas but sadly it closed three years ago. El Lajar de Bello by my husband's Belgian friend, so we thought we'd try it last night. It was quiet, being a Tuesday, but we were more than happy and the other 4 tables were very content and the... More

Visited this place a few months back and it was a real pleasure. The service and attention to detail is spot on. The quality of the meat products could be a bit better. Although i enjoyed the taste and cooking style the texture of the beef was a bit hard. I will definitely try this place again and i suggest... More

We were looking for somewhere new, both restaurant and town but not too far away and combination of TripAdvisor reviews and Google maps took us to El Lajar de Bello. We booked a table for 8.00 and arrived to find we were the only diners, although another small group arrived shortly after, and that was it until we were just... More

Its a nice and quiet restaurant in La Camella far from the touristic craziness.Most of the meals ive tried are very good quality,i would definetly recommed the Secreto Iberico. Would give them 5 stars,but last 2 times there was an arrogant waiter,apparently new in the restaurant,who made me feel uncomfortable asking him for basic things.Also is a bit pricey. But... More

Quaint, charming, and clean, the interior was definitely rustic Canarian: that was our first impression when we accidentally stumbled upon this fortune last December. And since then, we have returned handful of times to try their ever so interesting menu. They do have English menu upon request, and some are better English speaking then others; they are however so helpful... More

This is a lovely restaurant off the main tourist trail. It is very welcoming & spacious. The bread basket is varied & comes with butter/alioli/cream cheese & jam, which is quite nice. Please be aware although the wine list is "cheap" they add a €6 corking fee on top - have never seen this in the canary islands, (so logically... More

This restaurant only works with the finest ingredients. I had the grilled porc and beef dish (gusto or something) and it really was maybe the best porc I ever had. Good wine, good service. perfect!

A unique twist awaits your palate here, service was impeccable and food so different from other restaurants in that you expect traditional but get so much more. Prices are middle to top of the scale but you really do get what you pay for. The best fillet steak ever tasted, it cut like butter. Succulent salmon. Fabulous courgette and black... More

Have had the pleasure of dining here on now many an occasion. Always, even when busy we get a table accompanied by a friendly smile. The iberico is a must as are the steaks. Cooked always to perfection. A wide selection of great quality wines at a very resonable price. All who work there are professional to the last cant... More
