We enjoyed our meal here at a reasonable price. The local white wine was excellent, the service good and the food was well presented. We had a plate of baby squids which were well cooked and not greasy. The fish in the cabinet didn't look fresh so we didn't choose that. I had lamb which was plentiful, tender with an interesting flavour. It was a little oily although I guess this is the way it is cooked in La Palma. My husband had the rabbit (1/2!) and enjoyed it. We sat outside and although the inside was more atmospheric it did smell a little of cooking. Although we have found better restaurants with fresh fish which we like to eat we would return if around the area but wouldn't make a special trip.

We went to La Lonja after reading all the good reviews om TA, but we were really disapointed. The place were understaffed and there were dishes everywere. We orded 2 steaks, medium and one of them was well done and the otherone was pouring blood. No salt or peppar. The sauce where lumpy and the weggis were overdone. Did we go to the same place at all?! We asked for red wine when we ordered the food but we got it half through the meal... It's a good spot with a nice atmosphere, but the rest wasn't what we expected at all.

This Restaurant is a good choice for La Palma. It has a nice patio, the food is good, the fish fresh. Compared to the prices on the islands it's a bit upmarket, but quality is worth it. Don't measure with Restaurants in more famous places though. To compete with higher class this place would need to improve a little bit.

Certainly more upmarket than most of the other restaurants on the seafront, but by no means eye-wateringly so (most of the others are more bars / fast food places). Seems to have a good selection of local styled dishes - I enjoyed a very tasty rabbit in almond sauce. Dining alone, service was a bit on the formal rather than friendly side. Just a bit of a shame that (as with all the sea front restaurants) the tables out at the front are very close to the main road though on an evening this is less busy.

We just returned from our 2 week vacation in La Palma.
Went to this restaurant because of the good reviews here at Trip Advisor.
We were not surprised.
The prices are a little bit more expensive, but you get a good quality for your money.
Service is great and the inside of the restaurant looks amazing.
They just should remove the green umbrellas, so you have a full view on all the plants.
Our favourite was the Principe Alberto a specialty dessert of La Palma.
