This is an amazing place, we booked in for 8.30 earlier tables fully booked. Exceptional service and the menu is terrific. Quality is excellent, fish soup then roast pork knuckle.... delicious. Highly recommend this establishment.

The fish soup had no fish in it. At all. The vegetable curry was extremely salty. Couldn't appreciate any other flavour. So was marinated fish(apparently they buy it already marinated) Bottled water is not source water but treated tap water (way too below the standard...More

As the restaurant is in walking distance from our finca we gave it a try. Nice seating on the Terrace but no view. We had mixed starters (good) and goat (delicious). Selection of typical La Palma wines. Overall good, reasonable prices, nothing special.

Gazpacho was good, but really they don't know how to make curry (than don't put it on your menu!), it was awful. One fish dish was very plain. Sad to say I can cook better myself.. A nice view can't make up for the food.

We ate here twice, so were happy to return for a second visit. I am not sure we would bother about a third. The food was good but I think a microwave was involved to reheat food previously prepared because there was a small cold...More
