We were recommended this by our hotel but put off by reviews. We decided to go with gut instincts and found the location attractive. It was a lively spot. Our food arrived quickly and easily and was all delicious and plentiful with a good wine at very reasonable cost. Don't be put off by previous reviews. This is a good... More

The square in the centre of the old town has some bars, like El Populacho, and they do a great job serving you cold beers in the sun. But the tapas El Populacho serve, are the best in town and this tells you more about the competition... More

We stopped in Aguimes by chance and had a late, great value Canarian lunch. The cafe is located by the leafy town square. The waitress spoke no English and didn't quibble when there was a misunderstanding with our order. Thanks! Excellent service and food. Have the sizzling prawns, there were DELICIOUS.

We were directed to this restaurant by the hotel we were staying in and we were prepaid so were given a set menu. This was very good and consisted of real home cooked meals. The wine cost €1 euro per glass! I don't know how much the food cost but I'm sure it was on the very reasonable scale. Service... More
