We visited this restaurant twice last week and it is a lovely family run establishment with amazing food. On both occasions we made use of the free taxi service from our apartment 9km away! Traditional Canarian food and an amazing selection of fish and meat. We had the piglet on the second visit which was the nicest meat I have... More

Went on what turned out to be a quiet night. Looked after like royalty. Had a fantastic meal. The steak in roquefort sauce was superb. Well worth a visit. Good views to the sea in the distance.

In a good location with good views on the way to Aljhero. It's main selling point is the free taxi pick up and drop off which it needs to do to get sufficient diners to exist. Most trade seems to come from HPB site a few miles away. Decent rustic home cooking at slightly inflated prices with strong upswell on... More

This restaurant up in the hills advertises itself with free taxi. This was very handy travelling the 7K scenic route from our apartment. Service was okay and the gazpacho soup tasty and refreshing on a hot evening. However, it soon cools and a light jacket is needed as the sun goes down giving haunting glows to Tenerfe's Mount Tiede in... More

Like mentioned in other reviews (I should have believed them) I ordered lamb and I was served only lamb chops for 16 EUR which should be around 10 EUR. Seems to be overpriced in my opinion, for that price I would have expected a lamb fillet.

Lovely bar/restaurant with good views. Staff were friendly and service was faultless. S was also a recommendation by a previous bond owner, good choice. I had the King meson steak which was basically served with a peach on the steak and a very rich sweet sauce. The steak melted in your mouth and the sauce was delicious. My husband had... More

From the complimentary taxi ride, which took as to a couple of viewpoints on the way, to the friendly welcome and the excellent food, this was a superb choice for Sunday lunch. It is a village restaurant and as such not surprising that the food was fairly "simple" as some comments before have mentioned. The suckling pig was superb. The... More
