An excellent restaurant with very attentive service. We sat at a table for two and I had my back to the view. The waiter insisted on moving another “two table” next to ours so we could sit side by side and both face the view. This eliminated two covers that might otherwise have been occupied at a time when the restaurant was very busy – amazing service. Next, we watched as another waiter produced a second small parasol from the back of the restaurant and tied it to a larger one so the couple at the table in front of us could enjoy the view with the gentleman in the sun and the lady in the shade.

But you don’t go just for the service! We ate the best meat paella we have ever had (and we’ve had a few) accompanied by a very good bottle of Verdejo (white wine). Starters were tasty and we reckoned this place has the best view of those on the beach front. It’s not cheap but I would say it was definitely good value for money.

We ordered take away, as we have a small baby with us. They insisted that we brought the food on proper plates, just to return them the day after. The food was fantastic. Well worth the extra euros. We had the delicious tuna carpaccio and tasty imberico ham for starters, an a very tender veal steak for main course. Very friendly staff!

The food and service were excellent. The best we had on the island and we pretty much ate out every evening. The quality of the food was outstanding, especially the Paella which was fabulous. The starters were all very good (recommend the avocado and king prawn dish and the mussels - both exceptional and beautifully presented). Only thing was I was full after the starters! The staff were very friendly and remembered us (and our dishes on our second visit and thereafter). It was not the cheapest, but the quality was well worth the money (starters about 10 Euros, mains about 12-15 Euros). Mainly a Spanish menu (although the staff are all Italian!).

Fabolous!!!

This is by far the best restaurant in puerto de mogan, probably in south gran canaria. Starters, maincourses and desserts - EXCELLENT!

The food is amazing. Every dish we ordered was prepared to perfection and tasted heavenly. Recommend the carpaccio (all types) and the desserts. The food alone is a reason to eat here every day.

Service is also very good, hopefully Milo will be there to take care of you - and make sure to ask him for recommendations and suggestions!

This is truly a hidden treasure!!!!
