Just back from Tenerife where we had a meal at Fados. We had grilled salmon with canarian potatoes which was lovely. The food was very tasty and an ample portion. Staff were attentive and the food offered value for money. Would be happy to visit here again for another meal. The restaurant is suitable for families, couples or friends.

We have been visiting this restaurant for several years and have never had a bad meal. Food and service is always of a high standard and this is proved by the number of other people who return to the restaurant. We are always happy to recommend this restaurant to other people .

My wife has Chicken Hawaii and I had Chicken and Vegetable Paella. Had no complaints about the food or wine but the attitude of the staff was something else. We had 4 different waiters serve us. 3 didn't smile or make any eye contact. The 4th waiter when realising we were English just kept saying Manchester City and football and... More

Went there twice, their starter of avocado with prawns - gorgeous, their salmon with green pepper sauce is to die for and reasonably priced too

We were here for breakfast. Breakfast was decent, and well priced. Not sure I'd go here for any other meal, as the menu seemed lacking. Service was good, but not great. Good location.

The steak was 'fresh' out of the microwave. Should have known when we ordered & the waiter didn't ask how we'd like it. Terrible service too. Never again.

Had lunch here a couple of times, great menu, tuna salad very nice & mussels marinara were superb. 12 Euros for a bottle of white rioja & 25 Euros all in for lunch. Nice spot for some afternoon sun & service is excellent.

Recently ate with my wife The food was ok but nothing spectacular. What both me and my wife found strange was the attitude of the staff. waiter who took our order apparently found the fact I ordered steak in blue cheese sauce and chips hilarious as he sarcastically said we were very British as he was laughing to himself and...
