We arrived here one evening to find the place heaving! Be warned - get here early as it appears to shut at 8pm (or stop serving at least). We waited to sit outside (took about 15 mins) - much nicer ambience on the terrace. Both our dishes were lovely (I had the Corvina/sea bass and other half had battered prawns) - lots of potatoes and salad, along with the obligatory mojos! Dessert was a little disappointing - the usual mass-produced ice creams found across the island. Place was mostly full of Spanish-speakers and a few tourists.

Recommended to us by our site manager at the other end of the island.
The place was full of locals, and we had to queue to get in for about 10 minuets.
Well worth the wait, fish was exellent and so fresh.
Lovely terrace view on a nice day.
Service was a little slow, but we did go on a weekend, will deffinatly go again, but will try midweek next time to avoid the weekend rush.
Best fish resaurant we found on the island and not touristy !!!
Closed on a Thursday.

When in Arrieta, we usually have lunch in one of the other restaurants but decided to have a change, glad we did. I had battered king prawns and OH had canarian stew followed by prawn tortilla, all well presented and delicious and with a fantastic view included.
Whilst eating we remembered that we had eaten there before many years ago, but had not been able to get a table the following year. Get there early!

This became our eating place of choice during our two week stay in the area. Generous portions of beautifully cooked fish and meat together with a good selection of reasonably priced and good local wines, served by friendly and efficient staff. What more do you need?
