Every New Year we stay in Costa Teguise but always have a trip out to Playa Blanca and have lunch here. Good food, pleasant service and good views = a restful relaxed and enjoyable experience. 2017 we will be back staying in Playa Blanca and hopefully reserving a table for the New Years Eve diner.

We love going here for Birthdays and special occasions. If you like olives there are always some lovely ones on the table when you arrive. We enjoy the Chateaubriand. The meat is always good and is served with veg and bernaise sauce. The desserts are always special and it is hard to choose which to have.

This was the best restaurant we went to in Playa Blanca. The seafood was absolutely delicious, views were great and personal and friendly service. Highly recommended. It's on the 2nd floor so not along the beach but look for the building with giant cacti and you will find it up the ramp on the side. Paella was one of the... More

It was hard to choose. The menu has many wonderful dishes. I finally picked the beef with the sauce made with Pedro Ximenez Sherry. It was superb but is the chef's secret so I won't be making it at home, sigh! The restaurant itself was charming and even without having a table right at the window (book well ahead) we... More

Food is really tasty and hot, however if you have a large apitite this is not for you, portions are quite small order starter, house wine is lovely, views are great windows could be cleaner and watch for the floor it is really slippy, fillet steak not like UK and prices are high

We chanced upon this restaurant one evening as we strolled all big the sea front. Lovely location - upstairs with panoramic views over the bay. The service was lovely. Our waiter was attentive without being oppressive. The food was excellent. We both had large starters and followed with a paella. Everything was very tasty and well presented. We did not... More
