Me and my boyfriend visited the restaurant based on good reviews, but it turned out to be disappointing. He ordered a sirloin steak and asked to be medium, but the steak was served rare. It would be okay, but for 16€ the portion was small and tasteless. They did come and ask if the steak is okay, but it was after he almost finished it. I had a tuna salad and it was okay but not worth 8€. Although, the food was served fast, the staff was very nice to us and the wine was good. The only thing is that food was not worth the price.

I visited already three times (in two years), and I like this place. The service is very friendly and helpful. Food is seems to be traditional Canarian, and is as good, as this seems to get. Don't expect complex flavors or a variety of textures - but simple, down to earth food.
I also like that if you order wine by the glass, they ask you what you like, and then bring a suitable bottle that is left at your table to have as many glasses as you like.

We had dinner at this restaurant an evening during our holiday. We liked the atmosphere and the staff was really friendly. Good wine selection and the steak was sublime! Would absolutely recommend the place.

Being British we arrived before 9pm and got a table! The staff were really good and very helpful. The wine was lovely and we had really nice pudding wines recommended by the staff.
But the food was nothing more than average. Salty peppers, soggy batter and cheese with tomatoes that anyone could have constructed. The puddings were obviously bought in. A rubbery creme caramel and a gloomy sweet almond concoction which was inedible.
Nice place but poor food. Depends what you like!
