Very good and price worthy. Friendly owner. Beautiful terrace of an old canary island house. The pollo al grill is one of the best I ever had. The salsa is lovely.

THE restaurant to visitor you prefer perfect food over sophisticated service. We like it, we love it, we would always come back. Go there with people who like Spanish hospitality like home!

We ate here a couple of times in a two week stay in La Calera, La Gomera and enjoyed it each time.
