Some friends who have visited before recommended this restaurant and so we decided to try it. It is tucked away from the main run of restaurants along the promenade and you wouldn't come across it unless you were looking for it. It was full when we arrived but luckily someone was leaving and we got a table. The restaurant is... More

This is a beach bar overlooking the ocean, with half of the seating/dining area on the sand. The staff were friendly, we were seated quickly and the service was prompt. We both chose fish dishes and both were very good.

This year we arrived on Valentines Day and made a beeline for this colourful beach restaurant in warm sunshine. The guy in charge professed to remember us and offered 4 fish of the day choices but it had to be the fresh tuna served with a little green mojo sauce a bit of salad and a few Canarian potatoes. What... More

Delicious food, friendly service and great value. We devoured calamari, perfect grilled sardines and croquetas, washed down with several beers and all the while facing the sea in hot sunshine. It doesn't get any better than that.

We were staying around the corner in the Hotel Jardin Tecina and visited here a number of times over the 10days we were there. Whilst we would go and have a few beers before dinner at the hotel we did go there and have lunch on one occasion which was great. We order calamari, house salad and fries. The meal... More

A pleasant surprise - beach bar exterior with fantastic food. Do not examine menu - just ask what are the main dishes of today. There were grilled tuna fillet, grilled dorado fillet and meatballs. We ordered dorado. You cannot add something and you cannot remove something. It was absolutely perfect. With a touch of pesto and canarian potatoes. Definitely worth... More

This is a terrific little beach restaurant. Sadly no octopus salad this time but we enjoyed some excellent grilled mackerel x2, calamari, fresh sea bass and three beers all for 40Euros. Yes it's scruffy but the food is fresh and well cooked. The service was very good and it's excellent value. Ticks all the boxes for me.
