A warm friendly restuarant in the heart of the old town port area. Attentive service and good food. Excellent wine choices, including several local wines.

Probably one of the worst meals I've had. I shared a steak and a tuna steak with someone, both were requested medium rare - what we got was 2 bits of inferior quality food that were 'well done' and hence it was like eating a pair of Wellington boots.

We were looking for good paella and this place gave us really good paella. The octopus starter was really tender and the chocolate mousse was like air. A great meal would go back again.

Had a lovely seabass in sauce meal here. Like many of the old tiwn restaurants it had an excellent selection of wines, including the lovely lanzarote wines. Theres also a nice harbour and sea view. Mid range to upmarket eating id say, but basing that on one meal.

This restaurant is located in the old town of Puerto Del Carmen. There is a lot of hustling going on with all the restaurants vying for custom. It is a bit off putting but if one does all have to. We were a party of 7 and the food and service was excellent. Definitely worth a visit.

What a refreshing change, this was the only Bar/Restaurant along the entire row that did not have staff trying to hassle and drag us in. When will these places realize that they just put people off? I just refuse to go in them. We called at this small and very tidy premises which faces the Sea with a beautiful view,... More

No one pulling you in or bugging you to eat at this restaurant. The waiter showed us the menu and left it up to us if we wanted to eat there. We explained one person in our group was a vegetarian and was told that was no problem. From the moment we were show our table the waiters could not... More

Visited this beautiful restaurant today. We shared a tapas for 2 people and every mouthful was a joy to eat. The food was beautifully presented and the staff extremely attentive and made us laugh. The homemade strawberry liquor which arrived with our bill was a delicious, refreshing bonus. Very highly recommended. We'll definitely be back!

We visited this year, expecting the great food and service we'd had in previous years, only to be highly and utterly disappointed, food was disgusting, service was very, very poor, total fall in every standard expected. Needless to say, will never go back! AVOID.

This is the second time we have eaten here. I agree that the service isn't particularly quick, but it is still ok. The waiters were attentive and polite. The food was excellent. I think you need to accept that service can be slower than at home, but we still had an excellent experience and lovely food. Will definitely return again.
