“Great food , the worst service”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

I was tempted to give this restaurant an average rating, but that would be a disservice to the chef .
The italian food tends to be very good (although not all the dishes enjoy the top quality ) but the service is not bad, it goes well beyond that adjective .
If you are lucky, the stars will shine on you and food and service wil work out fine .
The unlucky visit means that you will be sorrounded by stressed looking waiters, not approaching your table at all, while they serve everybody and their mothers, who happened to arrive some time after you did .
So I can only wish you good luck when you visit the place . The opposite means that you might never return .

“A little gem”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

Just back from two weeks in Puerto del Carmen and we visited this restaurant 3 times in seven days. We have been coming to PDC for years and cannot believe that we did not hit on this gem before now. It was recommended to us by a resident of the island which is always a positive sign. The food is excellent and full of flavour. The decor is warm and relaxing with a wonderful ambience. The staff are friendly and efficient and we particularly enjoyed meeting Florencia who is wonderful at her job. The only slight quibble we have is there is nobody to meet and greet customers when they arrive. We had pre booked the first night and after waiting five minutes at the door, went and found our table ourselves. Not the norm in other PDC restaurants.

“Busy but good”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

The food here is good and there is a wide choice on the menu. The staff are pleasant and efficient. This is a busy restaurant so, while you will usually get a table on arrival, if you want to be really sure, it's a good idea to book in advance.

“A little dissapointed considering previous reviews.”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

My partner and I were somewhat disappointed with our experience at this restaurant as it came highly recommended.
As the main part of the restaurant was full we dined in the outdoor area, a big mistake. We were waiting for at least 30 minutes to be served but at least we did have a drink served to us while waiting. The staff seemed somewhat indifferent, which is so unusual for the area, but maybe due the lateness of the evening about 9 PM.
The meal when served was delicious and reasonably priced. If dining here I would recommend that you pre-book and of course make sure that it is indoors :)
