“Expensive for what you get”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

The service is very good, you feel very welcome, but the sepia was a frozen one, not fresh. The fish was ok, but just that, not really tasty and potatoes seems like from the day before.
And...
you have to pay 1.70 € for a bit of bread and even for the "mojo". Never have seen before in a restaurant, that you have to pay for this tipical canarian souce. It use to come when you order freash fish.
So, its not bad at all, but you can eat better for less.

“Simple fare beautifully cooked”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Arriving late, we had little choice of the catch of the day but chose a large bream which was simply grilled and served with salad and potatoes. The fish was jumping fresh and cooked perfectly - a fantastic example of treating the ingredients with respect and serving it in such a way that enables it to speak for itself. The service was attentive but not intrusive and the restaurant honest and unpretentious.

“Good food, good service, local style”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

One of many restaurants in Garachico. The style is simple, bright and unsophistcated while the service and food, especially the local fish, was very good. Good value

“A very average restaurant”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

Maybe I chose the wrong dish off the menu, goat stew which is a local speciality. It was tough and unpleasant to eat. The chocolate mousse was good though. The waiter was friendly. However, I would not visit the restaurant again, shame because it is a stones throw from our hotel.

“good value”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

have been eating here for 5 evenings. Fresh fish is very good. Service is good but not stiff upper lip. Very nice contact with waiters and cook. We once had a diner that was 5 starters and it was terrific!
