Great place for people watching but after going here for breakfast for a number of years we found it was becoming expensive for what you got. We found 2 other cafe's just a short walk away were the breakfasts were much cheaper and tastier. Wont go back for an evening meal but hubby does like the "sausage"! Avoid the crepes!

Didn't eat here as there are way too many better places further up the strip but we stopped for a few drinks early evening to take in the last bit of sunshine. Staff were friendly. Drinks were OK price wise and unusually for bars here you got nuts and popcorn which made the kids happy. Looked at menu and it... More

Food was ok but beware - you may not get what you ordered as some menus (ingredients tippexed out) get changed and others don't! Whilst there, we were aware of a number of tables getting the wrong things but too polite to complain! Staff assumed that as you are British you are stupid. Having lived and worked in Spain for...

My boyfriend and I visited this restaurant 3 times while we were on our holidays in Tenerife. If i was rating purely on the food i would give 5 stars but we didn't feel that the staff were very friendly. But apart from that we enjoyed our visits!

While on holiday me and my mam decided to visit this restaurant one night. I got a chicken mayo sandwich and chips, my mam opted for a chicken salad. Both meals were fantastic. We also got cocktails, mine had an apple sliced into the shape of a duck. Both were amazing. Staff were excellent. You also get a bowl of... More

We stopped for lunch. The cafe is situated on the main street, in a good location. The staff were friendly and polite. My son's chocolate milkshake was yummy. The vegetarian pizza we ordered was 9 euro. It had: carrots, cauliflower, peas, mushroom and onions on. It tasted a bit a strange, we then felt ill later on.

Visited this restaurant a few times, they do a fantastic 1/2 meter Spanish sausage served on a slab and it's beautiful. Staff are friendly and really helpful, watch out for Mr Sneaky Sneaky (the butler off Mr Deeds!) Good Value for money, and an ideal place to sit and have a drink and people watch.

The first thing we would say about this place is the absolute brilliant service. The guys are all really hard working and yet all were great with the kids and us..especially our 3 year old who was mesmorised by the acts each time we visited. We only had one meal here and it was nice, we did go here almost... More
