My husband and I had a wonderful meal here last week. Curried Goat, Ribs, Prawns & Mussels, Beef Stew, Lamb & Sweet Potatoes all washed down with a very potent Rum Punch. The Goat, Ribs and Lamb were particularly tasty and it was a lovely relaxed atmosphere. As many have mentioned this is a man and wife team, so don’t go if you are in a rush, sit enjoy the atmosphere and chill out.

Restaurant run by a lovely couple. The food is fantastic, reasonably priced, it is in the old part of Puerto Del Carmen, Jerk chicken, Caribbean Chicken, oven baked ribs. Restaurant only opens at 6pm at night. Definitely will be going back.

We should have had a quick look at TripAdvisor before getting in, there are many other reviews echoing ours. The Chef's behaviour is inappropriate in the presence of children.
If you're not a family, then enjoy. The food is quite oily, but really good.

Hi
The night you came into our restaurant we were very busy.By the time you had eaten your meal we were full,your son was getting a little restless which is understandable.You decided to take him out of the high chair to let him roam around the restaurant.This is very dangerous in a busy restaurant as at one point your toddler ran towards the door right in front of the waitress carrying a tray full of hot food.You then decided to let your child play with our take-away menus and business cards.This is when the chef actually asked you not to let your child do this as they are not for children to play with.I do not think this is unreasonable or anyway makes us not like children which you have suggested.As a parent you must remember when taking your children out to restaurants we are not play grounds or creches for children while parents take time out to eat&sit on their phones all night.Your job as a parent does not stop when you walk through a restaurant door.
thankyou

The restaurant is fantastic and run by a lovely couple. The food is fantastic, and would highly recommend the curry goat. Reasonably priced food and have to visit every time I am in Puerto del Carmen.The restaurant opens only at night and is closed on Thursdays.
