As soon as we stepped foot into this restaurant after a long absence of some ten years, I was instantly recognised from my past visits and made to feel like I was a wanderer who had returned....santi and his whole family work so hard to make you feel like one of their family and they always aim to make your meal as enjoyable as possible and everyone who dines here always has a smile on their face!!!! Situated on the hill down towards the old town on your right, just after the newish shopping centre, the decor is typical canarian village style with plates from around the world adorning the whitewashed walls, so nothing plush....but it all adds to the real feel your somewhere special. And then theres the food.....zarzuela to die for, mussels that melt in the mouth and steaks that are cooked to perfection....i cant reccomend anything in particular though as its all so well cooked and delicious! Hats off to santi and co.....they really do make your holiday so much more special!!!! I promise we wont leave it so long before were back to see you all! Hasta luego!!!

Lovely friendly atmosphere. Food was excellent and well cooked. Simple food that had first class taste. Was recommended by a bar man and we weren't disappointed.

This was a wonderful experience that no one should miss. The restaurant is in the heart of old town Puerto Del Carmen, away from the commercial/pub restaurants, that offers REAL family style Spanish food with a warm family environment. Couldn't recommend it enough!! Great sangria, excellent food, warm, friendly atmosphere... What more can one ask for? A must!

We travel on an ongoing basis to Puerto Del Carmen but somehow had missed this restaurant on previous visits. We were taking another couple out to dinner (they are resident in PDC) and they suggested this restaurant for our meal out. We enjoyed the food, ambiance and service so much that we visited this restaurant on 3 separate occasions during our last 9 day stay. Santi and his family are so welcoming that you really do feel like a valued customer. We are returning to PDC next month and will definitely, defintely return to this restaurant.

Great place to eat found this place on the first night and went back there 2 more times. Great atmosphere you are made to feel very welcome and an individual by Sante and his wife and waiter Marcial. Both meat and fish dishes were delicious and house rose wine good. Very good atmosphere warm and friendly. This is a traditional Spanish restaurant and one of the oldest around the old town area of Puerto Del Carmen.
