The most delicious steak meal. Very good quality meat and cooked to perfection. The accompaniments were delicious too. Trust the lovely waitress when she says you only need one potato dish and one salad dish between two! It is a little pricey at ~ €100 for two (2 courses and a bottle of wine) but it was worth every cent.... More

We went here following a recommendation from someone we met whilst on holiday in Puerto Calero. We arrived on a Wednesday at 8.30pm thereabouts we were kept waiting before we were even given the menu. We then waited an hour for someone to take our order & finally got our food at around 11pm. We conveyed our concern over the... More

What a welcome we received when we arrived warming up after an eventful trip around the island in buggies in bad weather! We were still feeling cold after getting caught out in terrible hail showers! Our wonderful welcoming host got us blankets. The food was top notch and the steak was one of the best I have ever had. Flo... More

8 of us dined here on our first night. Table reservation was for 20.00. Our orders were not taken until 21.30 and we did not complete our meal until 23.30. This was dreadful service by any standard. Only 2 serving in a really busy restaurant. It was a pity because the food was excellent. A meat only establishment. One of... More

Busy restaurant with all inside tables reserved. Hostess wonderfully welcoming, explaining the food options and giving helpful suggestions re portion sizes. When food came it was phenomenal with perfectly cooked smokey steaks and lovely sides. Wine was great and desserts a sweet ending!

This restuarant is situated on a first floor balcony overlooking a village square beside the marina. We dined early arriving at 7.30. Only a few diners at that stage. A very knowledgeable waitress/manageress eventually took our order. Starter slow to arrive but was good. I had steak for main course, i ordered well done, however because of the way they... More

This place had some of the best service I'd seen in a while. the lady owner was very accomodating. Visited with a group, I personally found it a little expensive, with it coming in around 50 euros each, for a main meal and a few drinks. food was good, nothing out of this world, but I certainly couldn't complain, and...

We travelled here after being recommended by a friend. We got the water taxi from Puerto del Carmen from the old town harbour for 6 euro (6 euro in a taxi on the way back if you are staying past water taxi time for the return journey) Firstly the welcome we got was lovely, everyone was so friendly and accommodating...

We had a good meal here and can't really fault the food, except that quite a bit of my ribeye was fatty and grizzly, and the owner went to great pains to explain how the menu worked. Basically, you pay a price for the meat only and have to add everything else on! We had wine by the glass and... More

Took are friends to this restaurant for their wedding anniversary. Flo greated us like long lost friends! Don't expect to be in and out in a short time as Flo takes time to explain the menu to all the diners herself in detail, she is very informative about the menu. Food excellent value for money. Will be back again.
