Excellent location on the sea front and a very relaxing experience. We enjoyed the food especially the octopus stew and the local wine was very pleasant. We had no experience of Gran Canaria before and selected the restaurant on location ambience and menu. The staff were attentive and friendly. Altogether a lovely experience leaving us feeling very mellow.

This place must have invested a fortune on publicity because it is in every single travel magazine and it welcomes passengers from some of the cruises. I do not mean it has bought its reputation but it cannot all be due to their food because the competence around is ferocious.

The venue is nice with a lovely outdoor sitting near the sea and the staff is friendly. The breakfast menu is excellent with a set breakfast of fresh orange juice, coffee and sandwich of your choice.

The menu for the rest of the day offers simple food with good quality ingredients but there is no signature dish or product. There is nothing that would keep me coming back again and again. It is definitely not outstanding especially when you look at the offer around you. Within less than 50 yards in any direction there are countless restaurants offering top quality traditional Spanish food or modern variations which will keep you coming back each night.

It may be the only restaurant with available tables outdoors on a sunny Canarian day but if you are not starving, walk around and explore. You will not regret it.

I've been multiple times in this bar/restaurant in the beach. If you sit in the outside terrace, you are just a few meters away from the sand and you can enjoy the view, specially during sunset. The food is quite good and they are open all day and have a menu that covers breakfast, lunch and dinner. When you are in a table outside, they have a nice system to call the waiters.

Try the squid sandwich (bocadillo de calamares), the tapas or the montaditos.
