“Fabulous food, brilliant service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013 via mobile

We received a very warm welcome both times we arrived. The staff are friendly and helpful. We plumped for the house wine which was fantastic. The food was all home-made and very high quality and tasty. A great laid back atmosphere with great food and wine and friendly and attentive staff, what more could you want?!

“Simply the best.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2013

Where to start with this wonderful restaurant.We have been visiting Costa Teguise for over 20 years,and since we found Nati's 20 years ago (because that's what this restaurant is known as by all who regularly frequent it) this is our first port of call for a meal.It is also the last place we eat before we leave for home.We eat here as many times as possible in between.
The menu is varied, freshly prepared by excellent chef's,and served by friendly knowledge staff along with Nati and her son Daniel.If there is nothing on the menu that takes your fancy (hard to imagine) then ask for something else and if this family restaurant can oblige ,they will.
The wine list is sufficient for anyone.Red at the correct temp.the rose and white always chilled to perfection,as is the beer!!
It's not a large restaurant by some standards,but speaking of standards, they are the best.
The best sign of a quality restaurant is if the local's eat there,and they do.
We have spent New Years here and eaten some of the best food ever.
Try the Salmon Carpaccio,any of the pizza's,wonderful veal and the best tiramisu on the island.
Have pizza or pasta ,steak ,chicken or fish it's all excellent.
And if you happen to be one of those very rare people who visit Nati's and find things not to your liking,then let her know.Don't walk out and log on to Trip Advisor and whinge and complain.
Give her a chance to put things right.
We have eaten in other places in Costa Teguise and all around the island but always come back to Nati's.
It's a great place,owned by a lovely lady and her family.They all make you welcome,it's like a home from home for us.
That's why we will be there on 21st February at about 9.00pm for the first of may meals during our 3 week stay.
See you soon Nati.!!!!

“Friendly, and delicious food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2013

Nati, the owner, is so kind, and they have gluten-free pasta! Also, great pizzas and pastas, garlic fried with garlic--delicious. Great service and child friendly!

“Ravioli”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2013

Undoubtedly the best ravioli on the Island whether it be spinach, seafood, or meat ravioli, such loving care and attention go into the making and cooking of it. It is served with a delicious sauce and is a real culinary treat. Nati (the owner) is the Hostess with the mostess and always has a warm greeting for her customers. The homemade pate is a must. Altogether, well worth a visit.
