“Terrible”
Reviewed January 18, 2014

We went back today following a previous visit which wasn't entirely successful, because the place has brilliant views and everyone deserves a second chance! Big mistake. Clearly the experiences of our last visit were not a one off, because we had exactly the same problems again. The service was dreadful, the attitude of the staff was even worse, and the food? Not worth the aggro from people who think they have done you an enormous favour just by turning up. This place could give Fawlty Towers a run for it's money. We shall not be returning.

“An Absolutely Fine Restaurant”
Reviewed January 1, 2014

We visited El Volante on the way up the mountain. It is a very nice restaurant and we all enjoyed what we ate. The view from the outside balcony is fantastic. It is definitely better than it looks and is absolutely fine for a quick meal! We enjoyed it!

“Local, basic, but nice”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

This is in Los Menores, above Adeje toward Guia de Isora, on the main road. The views are fantastic if you sit outside. Grest views of La Gomera as the sun sets in the evening.

The coca-cola table and chairs are par for the course. This is frequented by locals, accessible only by car unless you are willing to take a bus toward Guia de isora.

Food is what you'd expect from a cafe bar. Arepas are the speciality - like mini pastries stuffed with a variety of savoury fillings. More like a bar snack. Good to try.

There is also a more traditional menu with chicken, pork, steak etc all at very reasonable prices. Chicken breast, sauce, chips & rice is 6euros for example. Home made tiramisu was excellent.

Certainly not fine dining, but reasonable quality food cooked fresh, very good value.
