We went here for an evening meal with our two kids. The food was excellent. The pear and ricotta tart was the best dessert I've ever had in my life. Literally I could have cried. The view is second to none in the evening, we were right on the waters edge. The waiter was attentive and noticed our young kids... More

Quiet restaurant near the water. Staff was friendly and efficient. We ordered the octopus and shrimp as starters and sea bass and turbo ad main dishes. Food was average.

Have the seabass ravioli. I went here a couple of times and they managed to cater for around 30 people without resorting to a set menu. They serve free liquor at the end of the meal. The wine is cheap and good. What is not to like?

Bad over priced food. We came in since it was the last place open for lunch. We knew that it might be a turist trap but walked in with no other alternative. The food was as of industrisl ready meals warmed in a microwave. A real tourist trap.

Perfect location, delicious meal, beautiful view, friendly staff. I have been to Arona twice, and had my dinner here. Beef with green pepper is my favourite. You can have variety of local wines. View is beautiful.
