Our family loved this restaurant which is run by a family...They are so nice and polite...Nothing was too much trouble for them. We ate their 5 nights out of 14 which shows how much we enjoyed it. The Steaks are to die for....There is a 3 course meal which is served with Water or Wine for 12.50....Very affordable....Loved it. We'll be back next year...Bon appetit

What a hidden gem this place is - Situated on the road down from biosphere shopping centre to old town on left hand side. There is also a sign that says Santi's. We ate here 3 times on this trip and could not find fault in any of the food. This is a family run business and has stood the test of time due to the hospitality shown- no need for a tout on the pavement says it al to me! Put this little gem on you list of places to eat you will not be disappointed.

Great local place, cheap, friendly family owned. Try the specials! There's a reason they've been there 37 years.

just back last night. We have been using this restaurant for over 20yrs and are well known to Santi, Maria and Renata. Although Pepe has taken over from Manolo as Head chef the standard of food is always 1st class. Agree with all other comments below and El Golfo is a significant reason for us to come back year on year. If you haven't already tried the mixed fish platter, do yourself a favour you wont be disappointed! Enclose a picture of the "boss"

Having read some of the reviews from trip advisor I would fully agree with the sentiments. This is a very cosy and typically Spanish restaurant that is run in a relaxed but still attentive way. The food was excellent from the Spanish tortilla starters to the cod steaks and fillet steak with pepper sauce. After we had ordered our starters we were presented with two crab claw bites whilst we waited for our food to arrive. soda and water to drink and two coffees to finish. We were also offered some brandy which as non drinkers we declined and the whole bill was only €37. The whole experience was very pleasant and relaxed and we will be back for sure
