We visit this small back street restaurant every time we visit los cristianos. They don't have a hugh menu, but what they offer is lovely, especially their chicken wings. It's full of locals art lunch time and long que, but worth the wait.

This was a great last minute find- I recommend this as a pit stop-layover spot for lunch, especially for those who are travelling as foot passengers to La Gomera on the ferry from San Christiania & have an hr or 2 waiting time before boarding....More

Delicious food, reasonable prices and fast service. But: hard to find, it's a small enclosure with the tent above you, the tables are very close to each other and people smoke around. So you decide. Ps the best squid I've tried

This restaurant is located in a prominent area. I doubt they will close during the busiest time of the year.

Limited menu and dependent on fresh fish available but if you go might be worth suggesting they do paella, they are very friendly and open to suggestions, could become a 'Sunday' special or similar
