The place is an average, however the female waiter is very good at showmanship. She can easily make you switch from a regular menue to the "special " one. The only thing that's special is a missing price on the menu that translates into a huge bill totally unjustifiable by the quality of the food and drinks. When you politely... More

The team is superbly helpful in making your visit memorable. Betzy, Vannessa and Silvestre were very helpful in translation and hospitality.

Great friendly service. Very willing to accommodate dietary needs. Lovely salads. The lamb dish to share was really tasty with loads of veg and Canarian potatoes. Recommend that you try it.

The fantastic position is already a business. The menu is varied and staff able to explain and suggest the dishes. No remarks for fish , but several typical other specialities are the normality and no reason for high prices as for the bill. Wines list to be reinforced!! and also draft beer!

Just down the street from our hotel, El Lateral 27 was convenient to starting our evening. Upon discovering we were American, we were accommodated with an English speaking server, who made lovely recommendations. We tried a traditional beef and fish plate, and both were very nice. With both dishes, served with fries, a beer, and a glass of wine, our... More

A very good and simple restaurant in the center of Santa Cruz, with good seafood not indulging in a too touristic approach. Very good boquerones (anchovy) in vinegar and very good squids a la plancha. Friendly staff and agreable terrasse on the street. Good price

It's a good place with nice staff and great coffe. They have good montaditos and the prices are fair. Only bad hing was the fact that after a while the wifi stopped to work and they didn't care about that...

Had walked past a couple of times and it always seemed busy so we assumed it couldn't be bad. We were not wrong. We were served by Joseph who could not do enough for us despite it being quite busy. Food was good and uncomplicated and came out fairly quickly. Would have gone back again had we had time. A... More

The place is in a very touristy area and preys upon the unsuspecting. They try to 'up sell" and are pushy. There are many better choices.
