“Great Location, Good Food”
Reviewed March 2, 2014

This is a lovely restaurant overlooking the little port/marina. You can sit outside on a long terrace that runs the length of the restaurant (and there are some gas heaters) or inside if it is too cold. Both times we went (went twice since food so nice) we sat out despite it being January and rather chilly in the evening. The second time though they had the awnings closed and we realised afterwards that in doing so it was like being in a marque anywhere - it meant we lost the feeling of overlooking the sea/boats and that actually we should have sat inside where it was warner and cosier. Would be ok in daylight though as you would still get the sea view.

Service was a bit variable. Attentive to begin with but on the first occasion a large group came in and after that we were not asked if we wanted more drinks, desserts, coffee - they were totally occupied with the group and managing to pay and leave proved a challenge. Otherwise though it was fine, with nice food. Probably similar price to Quintins, but more Canarian, whereas Quintins is more International (I would say about 12-19 Euros for a main, guessing slightly, sorry, food so good at both it was worth the prices charged)

“Good food in a nice athmosphere”
Reviewed February 19, 2014

This restaurant situated at the old harbour is worth visiting.
The restaurant has succeded in creating a maritime athmosphere and you have lots of items to study on the walls and ceiling while you are waiting for your meal.
The fresh fish and wine was excellent. Especially the grilled mixed seefod starter was great
The desserts were delicious and very (too) large portions.
A bit expensive but if you want to spoil yourself this is a perfect choice.

“Great setting and good food”
Reviewed February 19, 2014

Right by the harbour in the old town with a great view. The food was very good - the baby squid starter and the creme brulee desserts were particular standouts. Very good fish as well - I had the sea bream.

“Great food but expensive ...”
Reviewed February 16, 2014 via mobile

Lovely and very delicious food but felt it was a little overpriced, especially what they charge for a simple bread roll! The service was good and I did not notice any of the negative comments previously mentioned.

“Great setting, great food, great service”
Reviewed February 10, 2014

This was the best meal we had during a week of eating out in Puerto Del Carmen. It is a little bit more expensive than some of the other restaurants but well worth the extra few euro. The fish . . bream and hake was beautifully cooked and presented and tasted great. Service was excellent and the setting is lovely right on the harbour.
