“Great value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2011

We tried this local restaurant and ended up going back for a second visit within 3 days! We arrived in Agaete late on a Thursday night and the restaurant was empty but the owner was very friendly and explained what specials there were. We chose grilled fish for mains and gambas al ajillo and gofio for starters - there were all very tasty. The owner then brought out local liquers as a digestive on the house. When we asked if a shop would be open nearby as we wanted to buy water, the owner told us nothing would be open at that time and then went to fetch a large bottle of cold water for us, refusing to take payment for it. Highly recommended if you are in the area.

“Best restaurant in Puerto De Las Nieves”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2011

Very friendly family run restaurant in the centre - Excellent food, especially if you ask the owner what he recommends or go for the fresh fish of the day. Generous portions (beware if you are a small eater!) Ideal for evening meal. Must book at w/e as it gets full very quickly.
The only minor point is that it does not have a terrace or outdoor section but the restaurant offers great view of the harbour and the sea front.
