We are staying in a hotel up the road and just stopped for a drink and some food, I’d recognised the name as I had seen the good reviews when I was looking what is nearby and they are not wrong, we had the special...and it was honestly the best nachos and tacos I’ve ever had! P.s I love Mexican food, this surpassed way over my expectations. We are so impressed and the owner is lovely. Make sure you book as I believe they are fully booked most nights!More

Well we have visited Tenerife for many years and stayed local so often. Embarrassed to say have never ventured to this little treasure before. The food tonight was amazing. Staff fantastic. Hope the pictures reflect this little gem of a restaurant.

From the first time we visited this little sea view restaurant at the beginning of the holiday for breakfast, to the last night of our holiday for dinner the service and the food were excellent. Nothing was to much trouble for the owner (Julie). She...was so accommodating with everything. It is a fantastic place to grab a bite to eat or a full 3 course meal all home made and cooked to perfection. And the sangria is good too. Lots of the local people eat there so we found it the perfect place for us on several occasions.More
