“Lovely, welcoming staff”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

I wanted a vegetarian meal and thought that Nordic countries should be good at that, so went along to "a la mummo", which has received so many recommendations on TA. Before my dinner arrived the restaurant presented me with an attractive little cream cheese mousse and fresh bread. For starters I ordered a Caesar salad, as one reviewer had been ecstatic about it. Now, a Caesar salad is pretty ordinary fare and nothing to get excited about. But this Caesar salad was memorable. Then I had a spinach risotto with mushrooms. It was good but a little disappointing. It became very "samey" after five minutes or so. Coffee was not as good as it should be.
What made this restaurant special for me was the staff. They were, without exception, genuinely friendly and made me feel really at home.
Now for the negatives. Service was unpardonably slow. Seemingly endless delays in presenting me with a menu, in taking my order and in arriving with the food. Now I know that one of the reasons that I, and other northern Europeans, come here to Gran Canaria is to unwind and experience a bit of timelessness. But this was beyond all reasonable limits, particularly in a restaurant that was less than half full. As I'm griping about things, let me add that the outfits that the unfortunate staff had to wear were horrendous. They looked like cast-offs from the inmates of a 1950's psychiatric hospital. Drab brown, depressing, shapeless garments.
If I were rating this restaurant solely on its food, I'd give it three and a half stars. I'd then reduce it to three stars for the poor service management and finally raise it to four stars because of the delightful people who work there.

“Still great”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

We read the reviews from last year, but this was still one of the best restaurants we tried in Playa Ingles. I recommend the salmonilla espana

“Amazing food and great cocktails!”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

We stopped here after a recommendation from a local coffee shop owner (Cafe Rokoko...also a place I recommend) and we were very happy with our decision. My girlfriend and I both started with the caesar salads (hers with Salmon and mine with goat cheese). It was honestly when of the best caesars I have had (both of us kind of wished we got the larger version and had it as our meals). I also ordered the escargot in garlic and blue cheese and the sweet potato soup and my girlfriend ordered the spinach and goat cheese ravioli. All that cheese was very rich to say the least, but all was delicious. Very good meal at a reasonable price. We also asked the bartender to make us watermelon mojitos (they hadn't made them before) and they came out brilliantly (we ordered multiple rounds)
