It has wonderful views of La Gomera, possibilities to have a swim, ideal in the mornings or at night to enjoy its Mediterranean kitchen. 3 different terraces with tropical vegetation where we serve cocktails, sandwiches, pizzas and a la carte menu.

“Terrible food and staff”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2013

We stumble upon monkey bar on a walk along the beach, it looks very nice from the outside, but let me tell you the food isn't good at all and the service is terrible, when we got seated our table was dirty and my boyfriend asked the waitress nicely if she could please wipe the table for us, after that she completely ignored us we had to call her a few times to take our order, my salad looked and tasted like the dressing was on for a few hours and not fresh at all, the chips my boyfriend had were refried and not fresh either, for a higher priced restaurant we expected more, only good thing in this bar was the lovely bar man that took the salad of my bill and i gave him a nice tip for it, stay away from this bar way too overpriced for what it is

Absolutely gorgeous restaurant overlooking the sea. The food was gorgeous, best cesear salad Ive ever eaten. The drinks however were quite a bit more expensive than anywhere else we went!

“Superb place to relax- ALMOST!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2013 via mobile

We ate here one afternoon and we had ceasar salad 10, 50 euro, portobello pizza 10, 25 euro, fries 2, 85 euro and 1 large 1 small beer 4, 86 euro. The food was not the cheapest nor the drink but it was superb quality. It was so good we decided to go back the next day, eat again and relax on the sunbeds afterwards.
On our return the next day the food was superb again and we made our way to the sunbeds. As we were just nodding off the waiter who had served us came over and politely asked us to move! He said the aunbeds were owned by a hotel above the restaurant. Such a shame! I see other reviews have stated they used the sunbeds so maybe we were just unfortunate.
All in all though a superb place, great beach views, great food and atmosphere.

We were there as party of 5 friends, everyone ordered different dishes, and all of us were happy with their food. It was also lovely live guitar music in there, wonderful evening.
