We really enjoyed the vegetable soup and 4 other tapas. Two different sorts of white wine were both barique, which we didn't expect and didn't like. The service was fine in the end, but english was difficult to order. Value for money was okay for central Santa Cruz, but outside of the city it gets much better.

Restaurant on pedestrian way just off the sea front (not so great) with indoor and outside tables. Staff quick on service and food is good with excellent portions at a reasonable price. We ate in the bar and outside when the first floor restaurant was full.

Centrally located in Santa Cruz with seating inside and out.A busy restaurant serving traditional food of good quality.Clients were a mix of tourists and locals.We visited twice. The first time service was good, the second it was so slow that we left, having failed to receive any service in 30 minutes. It seemed to be a case of severe understaffing... More

We went for dinner and had a good time! We arrived just after a larger group of people and the young waiter with a tattooed arm told us there might be a slight delay due to that. Nevertheless we had menus in no time, got our beverages a minute after ordering them and our food arrived swiftly too. Everything we... More

One hour waiting. When the food finally came it was not as explained in the menu. Guess it was not their best day. Nice place to sit outside but food and service is much better in other locations of Sta. Cruz.

We ate inside, in the upstairs restaurant, and we were not disappointed. Everything was as you would expect. Service, food, wine and price. This is one of the busiest locations we have seen in La Palma, and although catering mainly for visitors, still had a local feel. Food of a good standard, recommended.

In our week stay in La Palma, we went to this restaurant 3 times! Lovely food and great ambience! Seafood is probably best on menu - fish soup especially.

We had a quick lunch and it was quite ok. The food wasn't really super. But the location is great. There was a guy playing the guitar, and the square is very inviting. We had a sandwich, pasta and tuna. The sandwich and tuna were very nice. The pasta was poor. All in all it was a nice experience

We stopped at this cafe bar for refreshments while exploring Santa Cruz de la Palma. It is a very popular spot with both locals and tourists, and has a lovely outside courtyard. It is sheltered here so great for al fresco dining whatever the weather. We only had coffee and beer on this occasion but it was very good and... More
