Ok we came here despite the reviews about poor service, mostly because friends had previously been 3 times and recommended it. We were a group of 7 including our 2 year old. We ate inside which is the inside of a cave so quite novel....More

Several people raved about this restaurant so we booked in last night. On arrival - no welcome, sullen robotic service. Be careful where you sit if outside - you can be blinded by dazzling security lighting from across the road. Food was OK, nothing special....More

Returned after 7 years...not the same as when we first came sadly.. Food very average although the tuna steak was pleasant..not that cheap, wouldn't rush back or recommend. Fish of the day was very disappointing.

The food was of high quality and freshly prepared, I had no problems being gluten free. The service was quick and there was great atmosphere inside the cave - be sure to sit inside!

Chose to eat inside this restaurant in a cave. 10/12 tables inside with half a dozen on the quiet roadside. Food presented was good and reasonably priced - not over busy on this night, so service was good as one might expect. If around here...More

food was very average, service mostly awful, a smile/be friendly school on La Gomera should be a good idea, I think. Spend a few quid more and go next door where you feel like a valued customer. They cook better too...
