Good food and service, with both some ambition and quality. Not excellent though, but decent value. Served bread which we didnt ask for but still had to pay for.

If we could give the six stars on value for money, we would:

Delicious tapas, particularly the Salmon on potato salad and the mushroom croquettes.

The desserts were heaven; we had passion fruit sorbet with white chocolate, and the creamy quesillo.

House wine, always of interest, very tasty.

Service was friendly and helpful.

Absolute recommendation!

After trekking around the city for a little while wondering why all the restaurants seemed closed turns out we were just looking too early! Checked with TA and recommended this place. Waiters were very friendly and have recommendations on their best dishes! Hands down best food we've had in Tenerife. Pork with horse chestnut and the deserts highlights! Definitely recommended!

We found this restaurant the last time we were in Santa Cruz, and we had such a fantastic experience that we were determined to make a return visit. It was every bit as good as we remembered - so much so that we went twice in one day! It's owned by the Condal and Penamil cigar company and the restaurant itself is full of references to that part of the business. Tapas highlights included Iberico Ham with tomato bread, carpaccio of tuna, pork loin with chestnuts and prawns in filo pastry, all helped along with a good selection of wines. Our waiter and waitress were really friendly and helpful - and we left with hugs and kisses and promises to return. Fabulous!
