This is an exceptional family run restaurant, offering a great welcome, good food and superb service. we ate here on two occassions on this holiday and only we had to return home a day early due to the National strike we would have had a third meal here.

I submitted a review of this restaurant last year but for some reason it was not published.My two companions and I ate in this restaurant inseptember 2012.We each ordered the half shoulder of lamb.We ordered 3/8 bottle of San Valentin and abottle of water.This restaurant is run by the Carpenter family from Cork-Bob is the chef and his wife Maura is the manageress.There is indoor and outdoor seating.Normally Bob comes out from the open view kitchen to have a quick word with the diners but on this occasion he confined himself to the kitchen as the restaurant was very busy.Maura made us welcome and recognised us as previous diners.All meals are cooked to order . Our lamb was served with beautiful creamed potatoes and fresh carrots and cauliflour.Iasked for an extra portion of creamed potato as it was so nice.Chips are homemade.The service was excellent as was the meal.It is a little dearer than other restaurants in the area but the fresh vegetables and the creamed potatoes made up for this.

We usually walk past Irish pubs/restaurants when we are on holiday but on our last visit to Lanzorete we arrived to our hotel quiet late and decided not to stray too far on our first night. As the other restaurants in the immediate area had soccer on we decided to try Kinsale, and were delighted we did. At first glance at the menu I thought 'nothing special' but I have to say the food was fantastic, lovely and hot, we both had fish and I could see the min it was put by the serving hatch it was dispatched to our table without delay. The staff were so pleasant and helpful not just to us but to all customers. My husband asked for a wine recommendation and the waiter recommended the house red, unfortunately I forget it's name but it was lovely. I noticed many had eaten there before and seem to know the staff which is a very good sign. Don't be like us and walk pass go in you will be glad you did... we even went back on our last evening, and are looking forward to trying it again at the end of November. If you like food you are familiar with cooked to perfection this is the place for you.

Been meaning to pop in on previous hols. Eventually did it.
Pretty good steak, pretty good all together although there was a mix up with the order. Would possibly go back but have other preferred haunts now.

During our stay in Puerto Del Carmen we dined twice at this beautiful restaurant and enjoyed both meals. If it had not been for Trip Advisor we would probably have walked past the restaurant however once inside we were not disappointed and the attention from Bob and Maura was excellent.
Hope to return next year.
