Food was amazing, the best tofu I have ever eaten! Service was great too, we felt welcome, everyone was helpful and friendly. We loved the menu and my 4 years old has been given coloring sheets and crayons. We came in when they opened for the afternoon and stayed until the evening. By the time we were leaving, the place...

Long way from touristic menues! Falaffel, couscous and ravioli, all tasty and with a twist. Good (local) wine list. We loved it!

Great place for a romantic meal. Not that big, so you need to book a day or so in advance. Food was lovely and so were the staff. Would go again. Goat cheese parcels were fantastic.

Staff is super nice, food is delicious and creative, wine is great, and atmosphere is relaxed and friendly. Definitely the nicest place we've had food in Tenerife so far. And would come back for something else on their menu.

We found this restaurant by accident when we were walking in the area. The food they make is one of the best I have ever had. Organic, fresh, great plate designs, most of delicious and great wine to match. Also amazing deserts. Definitely going back there if I am ever in the island again.

The service here is excellent and the food is exquisite! We recommend the goats cheese nests with honey and thyme, the hummus with Canadian coriander, the mixed salad with nuts and the middle eastern style couscous, washed down with a bottle of organic wine and topped off with the organic vegan brownie - everything was delicious! Make sure to reserve... More

This was by far the best restaurant we went to while in Tenerife. Although I am vegetarian my fiance is not, he enjoyed his meal very much. I loved all of the choice there was for me and thought it was delicious. The service was very good staff friendly. Could not fault it!

We have just returned from a week holiday in Puerto de la Cruz where we ate here 3 times! We had the vegan thai main, vegan veg and tofu stir fry main and vegan korma main. All were absolutely delicious and very fresh tasting and made such a nice change from pasta and pizza with just tomato sauce! The meals... More

I ate here with my husband, the restaurant is small and friendly, the service isn't fast but it's relaxed. The food is amazing! We had samosas and falafel for starters, my husband had a tofu korma and I had the daily tagliatelle which was pumpkin and leek, both were delicious. We very rarely have dessert but did here, a vegan... More
