This was the only place which was recommended by our travel guide (Lonely Planet, 2017) to eat in Agüimes therefore we tried this place but it was very disappointing. We ordered home-made speciality, Ropa Vieja because the waiter recommended for us but a part of the plate was very cold and somewhere it was quite warm so it was definitely... More

Everything we ordered was delicious! And high quality. Also the way they serve it looks great. We really regreted we couldn't eat more. Portions are big and prices reasonable. Service was freindly and could speak english which is very convienent unfortunatly not so common in little canarian resturants (they also have menu in few languages). Highly recommend it!

We ate here for the 2 nights we were in Aguimes. The menu is quite varied but I think the best choices are those that have a local slant - the Aguimes black pig posrk was lovely as was a chickpea dish with shredded chicken and beef. The 2 went together well, I think the chickpea dish on its own... More

This busy cafe serves good local dishes and snacks. The staff were very friendly. Situated at the corner of the main square the cafe is ideally placed for a visit to the attractive historic centre.

The food is typical 'pub' tapas, not gourmet but some hearty and filling dishes. Gets quite busy early on. Very friendly and efficient staff.

Fantastic authentic Spanish tapas at very reasonable prices. Amazing atmospheric place too. Gorgeous light fluffy cakes. Can't wait to return in November. Can only recommend. Staff extremely friendly considering how busy they were too.

Had a delicious, authentic meal at El Populacho earlier on today, eating outside in the loverly Plaza del Rosario in front of the Iglesia de San Sebastian. From the outside you might think this was just a cafe, but don't let that fool you. The food was exactly what we had been missing on the holiday so far, proper tortilla,... More

It's on the edge of the town square and is easy to find. The menu is typically local and the food is prepared with fresh local ingredients. This was our third visit! It's just a lovely place to relax over a dish of local food and a nice cool beer in the middle of the day. There is a nice... More
