“Still a great restaurant!”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

I have been going to the Casa La La since the 1980's and it is still a great restaurant! The food excellent, especially the conejo and the beefsteak! The staff are so friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Very resonable prices too!

“Still great if you can find it”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

This restaurant is on the edge of town , up the hill about a mile past the botanic gardens. It is well worth the effort to find it . It is in an old rambling building and most of the customers are locals or expats . There is no English menu but the staff will translate if you need it .
The food is a true taste of Spain , well prepared and equally well served . Not for steak and chips tourists !
They have good local wines as well.
We always go when we are in Puerto its a real treat

“Nice place but pity about the food”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

We used to frequent this restaurant years ago in the days when it was really good and a more typical canarian restaurant. Have been there recently and quite honestly it has gone downhill and the quality of the food is sadly no longer what it used to be. We also had to return the local wine and ask for bottled wine. On entering the restaurant on my last visit there was nobody there which really said enough to me. This restaurant was always full in the past.
There are many other better places to eat in Puerto de la Cruz and to me this not one of the "musts" to try.

“Not been for a couple of years - sorry about that forgot how excellent it was!!”
Reviewed July 9, 2011

Menu in Spanish but staff will do all they can to help. Typical Canarian food and so tasty. We had Cod for our main course - cooked very plainly but the biggest flakiest fillet I have ever had. even in Canada I did not have Cod as good as this. Prawns to die for - bread wine - everything spot on!! Very good value for money. Pity is out of the way but well worth seeking it out.

“Casa Lala - Simple and Excellent”
Reviewed May 25, 2011

You may have to search for it but it is worth it. Simple, well cooked, quality food. We went on a quiet night but it was half full with a loyal following of locals and ex pats. Little English spoken but they get by. The steak was excellent, the fish also - small but lovely menu using local and quality produce - make the effort, you won't regret it!
