“Seaside Sea Food”
Reviewed February 3, 2014

This restaurant is really worth going out of your way! The location is right at the seashore, the food, especially the seafood is just great, the locals eat there, the prices are right and the service is good and friendly, despite being very full. What more could you ask for?

Very popular place, always crowded. Service is amazingly fast. Staff very friendly. Excellent quality at a low price. Had fantastic steamed fresh mussels. Tables right by the seaside. Christmas lunch wearing shorts and flip-flops!!!

“worth the wait”
Reviewed December 1, 2013

found this restaurant by chance on a sunday afternoon. the place was packed with local Spaniards, quickly got a seat right next to the shore, beautiful location and ambience.
Very disappointed with the initial service, even though it was packed they could of at least offered a drink whilst we waited.
eventually we were given the menu (English translation), decided on a starter of cheese and Canarias potatoes, big mistake as they gave us hot bread rolls and dips which filled us before the piece de resistance... a beautifully cooked seafood paella to share. the staff, all though most did not speak English, were very friendly and made us very welcome. overall a lovely afternoon.

“One not to miss!”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

A great location, just above the beach, loads of easy parking, or just a few minute stroll from Arrietta.
Waiters were excellent, with really good English, and also helpful if you want to practice your Spanish!
The food was very good- we shared a sizzling prawn starter, and had a great seafood paella which was first class.
Complimentary Gran Canaria made liqueur with the bill, which sent us off into Arrietta to buy a bottle to take home!
Altogether a lovely meal and setting, and really relaxed welcoming - it was our last day, or we would have gone again for sure.
It is possible to just have a drink or a snack, so if you're in the area, make the effort to go there- you won't be sorry!

“Nice setting average food”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

Nice setting right on the beach with slightly over enthusiastic waiters, the food we had was really quite average, my squid was over cooked, the seafood pasta my friends had, was macaroni which they didn't expect and it didn't seem very fresh, it cost us 100 euro for the four us, but it really didn't seem like it warranted that price tag. Won't be going back there.
