we tried out this restaurant near san fernando because of the recommandations but we absolutely won't recommand it to anyone. the waiter was soo bad and distracted, we wanted a spanish or german menu card, he brought it in english, before dinner there was an annoying pseudo-canarian music group singing trite tourist songs, they brought us pan and coperto, this age-old trick, the bread was very old though, in the end they wanted 2.50 euro, we didn't pay it of course, the soup of the day (potaje) was medium, (4 €), the mixed salad medium and half an onion salad (cheap ingredients, 4.95€), served much too early, the grilled rabbit (some little pieces of it, nothing more) much too dry (we waited half an hour for it although the restaurant was empty), and also VERY burnt (9.95 €), the vine was ok but a cheaper mass product (1/2 litre: 8.90 €).
if this is canarian kitchen and atmosphere, i prefer mc donalds or pizza hut.

my recommendation: choose another restaurant and please: don't pay for anything you didn't order (like pan y coperto), tell the personal if you aren't content like we did! direct critics are always important!

The place is next to the road with a speed road in the hearing distance, so seating outside might be a bit disturbing. The interior is nice, but was quite cold because of the airconditioning.
Waiters were friendly but a bit annoying.
We took paella, which had plenty of "filling", but the rice was undercooked.

The servers were all friendly and spoke english well. The steak was cooked well, potatoes with garlic butter were great, and the fried octopus with green mojo sauce was really good, fun, and different. Reasonable prices completed the experience. We were very happy with this choice.

AVOID!!! We were told this restaurant was good by two separate locals but felt cheated when we went there. The wrong starter was delivered to our table when we were one of only 4 tables there at the time. When our Galician style octopus arrived it was swimming in tastless oil and the chef had not bothered to remove the slime from the mollusc!!! I'm no chef and have never cooked octopus but even I know that you must wash this off before cooking! Our main course of stewed goat arrived without vegetables and with unseasoned boiled potatoes... would have been nice to choose between chips/baked/local-style but I think the restaurant just couldn't care a less whether the guests enjoy themselves. My girlfriend and I left after hardly touching our main course and walked the short distance to Tapas Bar Capaco (read my review) to rid our pallette of the nasty taste.
