We have eaten here twice on our last two visits to Puerto del Carmen. It is very reasonably priced and it offers a varied menu. It is a traditional British bar in the sun with great views out to sea.

This pub/ diner is great if you want home from home. Lovely sunny terrace. All sports shown. Food from breakfast through lunch and dinner all excellent - ate here 12 times in ten days. Very good value for money. I think some of the posters on here must have been in the wrong place !!!
