A family run place with simple but great tasting food. Sitting on the terrace looking at the views sipping my beer, eating our Frittata and salad with added avocado grown in the garden below, life doesn't get much better.

The place was indeed special with a spectacular view and friendly staff. We tried some local tapas and also some local fruits with real taste :) We especially were in a search for something to give to our little daughter (1 year and 9 months) and the vegetable soup was fresh and tasty. When I will remember this experience, for sure I will also remember this place.

A cozy restaurant with a spectacular view of the valley. Some toys and a swing to keep the kids happy was appreciated. The service was friendly but not professional, our order was forgotten a couple of times and the wait felt long especially for the kids. Perhaps because it was quite busy when we visited.

The menu was exemplary short and we had cheese tapas which consisted of a selection of cheeses and two salsas, all good. We also had the set menu which consisted of a good serving of a simple but tasty vegetable soup, some deep fried dough of corn, onion, eggs and possibly something more that was nice but quite greasy. And a banana-drink. A nice break from canarian potatoes and grilled fish.

and the wait felt long especially for the kids. Perhaps because it was quite busy when we visited.

Park in the appointed parking near the roundabout and then walk down towards the restaurant. When you have just passed the square on your right hand side hound down, the stairs to the right are quite steep but if you steer left you can go down the hill past the cactuses and also reach this and other restaurants.

Dear Mostlyveg,

Thank you for taking your time and leaving a review about your experience in our Restaurant.

We are glad to know that you have enjoyed our atmosphere and our specials, we apologize if it has taken too much time, when we have busy days and our terrace are overbooked, we try to be so fast as possible, trying to satisfy all our customers, but our homemade dishes are freshly made and its take more time preparing everything recently .

We hope to welcome you back soon making your experience better.

Kind regards, marysol König

I have tried the meal of the day: ''panierte Champions'' with salad and an fresh caramel cake as dessert. My girlfriend tried a salad and a fresh apple cake. The cake was amazing...the salad and the mushrooms okay. The view was amazing and the service very kind...all in all 4 of 5 points!
