The girls really enjoyed the steaks which came on hot stone platters. They are in their 20s and this dish is not suitable for young children, but there are excellent other dishes as well. The tapas were excellent

We visit our holiday home in a neighbouring village but we always make time to visit La Puerta Ancha for a meal, where we get a warm greeting from the lovely Cliona, who owns the restaurant with her husband the chef. For lunch we have had the wonderful goats cheese salad, or the new smoked cod salad. In the evenings we have had the "Steak on a stone" which is always good, or the new pasta dish with venison which was delicious. They change the menu on a regular basis, the tastes are interesting, very different to the other restaurants in the town, and is also good value. Service is excellent, always a smile! The Sangria is a good choice or any of the various cocktails.
I can thoroughly recommend having a meal here, you won't be sorry!

We've been twice to this lovely restaurant in the past 2 weeks. The first time we ordered the excellent shrimp salad and fried calamari. . . delicious! The shrimp in Thai noodles was good also.

On our second visit, we did not fare as well. I thought the mussels in a creamy sauce were not the very freshest I've ever had and they were very large and so the soft texture was off putting. The shrimp salad was again delicious, but the potato salad with octopus again very fishy tasting and not that fresh.

We like the ambiance and the music. . . and the service was friendly but very casual. We had to go looking for a waiter during our second visit at 1:00 in the afternoon. We were actually surprised this restaurant was rated so highly as there were very few customers during either of our lunch time meals. We found the prices reasonable for the style and ambiance.

My husband & I always eat in Puerta Ancha when we go to our apartment in Isla Canela . We love the Tapas and you can have a larger portion if you wish to . You sit inside or outside, we cannot fault the food or the wine. Try the Sirloin wrapped in bacon with Iberico sauce & roast potatoes, lovely ! You will not be disappointed .

Fantastic food and a fabulous atmosphere - Friendly and inviting!

Thoroughly enjoyed the steak on the stone 9 oz fillet of German beef, place raw on a hot stone so you can cook to your liking ...... great experience for my teenage daughter! Deserts were to die for - will be back with friends in July!
