Heard great reports, read good and better views but waiting 20 minutes or more at the table before being asked about drinks in a less than half full restaurant is frankly unacceptable in this current economic crisis. We asked several times about giving our order before someone eventually came.The food took even longer to arrive so thank goodness we didn't order starters. A waiter blaming the chef for slow cooking is not very professional either. The meat dish, two of us had, was barely warm when it finally arrived but the meat was tender and the sauce very tasty. The vegetables were a total waste of money, the quantity was pathetic for two people and they were decorative at best because they were over cooked to the point of mushiness. Considering the place was far from full we could not believe the the quality and service was so poor. We left feeling we had paid a lot for very little. We were told by someone else later that they only ever order pizzas when eating there and that they are fairly priced and always good. It's worth thinking about if you do decide to eat here! Hope you get a better night out than we did.

This restaurant is in contrast to the various other, rather traditional, restaurants at La Caleta having a much more modern feel. It is set slightly back from the sea but still with good views and has both covered and outdoor tables.

We were visiting with my wife's elderly father to whom the staff were very friendly and made a real effort to ensure he got what he was looking for.

The food took a little while to prepare but this isn't fast food and the wait was entirely in line with how long I'd expect preparation to order to take. The portions (particularly of the calimari) were generous and the flavours very good. We liked the docor and choice of music.

There is a small children's playground adjacent to the restaurant and this allowed families to keep their children entertained which we saw as a benefit rather than a problem.

Prices are not low but the food was good and we felt we'd had good value

We went here on a Friday night, the place was absolutely bustling, service was great, and best of all was the cooking which was at a truly gourmet level. It was a nice change from the "factory" type of dining one experiences in the main commercial resort area of Costa Adeje. I highly recommend a walk over to La Caleta for a meal as it still has a little bit of fishing village atmosphere, and several decent restaurants.

Food in Tenerife is far not great. Still if you want to keep on safe side - La Caleta strip is one of the best best places to dine in. And this restaurant is definitely worth a dinner.
