A lovely restaurant looking out to sea, A different experience with our meat on a roasting hot cone keeping it warm.They flambe the meat at your table. Very hard to explain but worth a visit.Think the owners are Swiss and Spanish.

We don't usually eat in the same place twice in a week, one meal was a Sombrero - you have to try it - its not as "gimmicky" as it looks. The other meal was fish specials - sea bass & tuna. All were good. If you need a starter - share one, you won't have room for the main... More

My girlfriend and I visited here on our 2nd night of our holiday in Corralejo which was also my birthday. We opted for the prawns for starter which had been recommended to us by a friend who had visited before- they were lovely. We then went for the "la horca bounty" which was the sirloin and fillet steak, cooked in... More

The food was fine- we had what were previously called the hangman and sombrero. Great theatre and nice meat. The children's meals were average with one being distinctly less than... More

We ate as a family of 3 one evening, despite other reviews saying the restaurant was child-friendly, we found the service to be quite slow and unfriendly, although this did pick up slightly when the waiter changed. The food was pleasant if mediocre, and there is a nice harbour view, however there are much better restaurants to eat in at... More
