The food was very good; we learned later that it was probably cooked by the owner's mother - often a good sign in rural restaurants.

However, our meal was marred slightly by the most amusing, if rather manic owner, who simply couldn't keep still for a moment! Perhaps if more people had been there it might have been less intense for us. There is a limit to the number of times one can be asked if everything is fine and then to hear 'yes, it's all very good' before you have even had time to answer yourself!

As others have said, there is wine everywhere - literally, on every shelf, all over the bar, and in several fridges - reds and whites all cooling together is not always a bad thing but the reds do need careful selection for this. All the wine was standing up - and yes, many Spanish wines do still have real corks in them, so that was not so good.

Very well priced and a good meal. Could easily have been very good to excellent for the rural area, in other circumstances. Certainly worht at least one visit for the entertainment.

This nicely positioned place, just up the hill on the road out of Agulo, was just what we were looking for. Good Canarian food, well cooked and a surprising wine collection. The service is efficient and quite entertaining!

The owner made us feel very welcome. He was enthusiastic and had a good nose for wine. The fish was good.

This place is also frequented by Spanish people, which says a lot. There is a good selection of local food and it is prepared properly and tasty. The athmosphere is good and the owner is a nice and funny guy. Not expensive and good value for money. We really liked it.
