Restaurant details
Reviewed November 30, 2012

This cafe/restaurant is situated in an exquisitely beautiful location and, when we visited yesterday at about 2:15pm, our waitress was a friendly and helpful lady equipped with a PDA/smartphone which whistled our order straight through to the kitchen - very impressed with this efficiency in such a remote spot!

However, we ordered 2 coffees, 2 natural juices (delicious!), and a Canarian patatas mojo and it took some 20 minutes for the coffee to arrive and 45 minutes, in total, for the other items to arrive.

Maybe their meagre cooking facilities could not cope with a minor influx of guests though less than a quarter of their tables were occupied. But we were not best pleased to have to waste over an hour to stop off for a few drinks and a side-dish. Message for the management - if you cannot cope with simple orders within a reasonable time then warn customers on arrival.

Slow service aside, tge establishment was spotless and charming with the cleanest, freshest loos I have come across in this part of the world.

In summary, well worth a visit but check the wait time on arrival and hold them to it.
