“Nice Surprise For Lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2014

Stopped off here when we were out walking one day, and decided to have some lunch. The waiter on duty this day was great fun, we had garlic prawns to start followed by the local fish which was very tasty. We had some nice wine "Yaiza" which made a pleasant lunch.

“Friendly staff, food not great”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2014

Good service, great portions & reasonable prices but the food wasn't too great. Still edible but I'm not sure the guacamole had seen a avocado. The cheese was that kind of cheese that doesn't seem to have much flavour. I wouldn't go back.

Food was OK, Marguerita not very good and the actual restaurant was freezing, we did not stay long after finishing our meal!

“Easily missed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2014

The entrance to this place is at the ferry terminal end of the main shopping street and does not look inviting. Once inside the view from the terrace seating is spectacular. A very varied menu and we all enjoyed out choices. The portions were good too. Watch out for the tequila at the end of the meal - different!

“Always a Pleasure!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2014 via mobile

We often dine at this little Mexican restaurant when we visit Playa Blanca, and have done so for 7 years now. It is such a warm friendly place to eat. The views are lovely, looking out over the sea. The staff are welcoming and friendly. The food is good, the portions plentiful and the prices very reasonable. We'll be back soon.
