Delicious, fresh local food. Amazing fish and seafood, “mojo” and salads. Very friendly service, you can count on their advice. A must in la Restringa.

Ate here twice, salad was really good, seafood soup a bit thin, fish of the day was ok but both times cooked in the same way with far too much garlic (and I like garlic). Owner was friendly, helped with menu and was attentive.

Had seafood soup to start, watery with only a hint of the sea. We had grilled fish, not sure what the fish was, but it was OK served the ubiquitous hard Canarian potatoes and mojo. Highlight was the creme caramel.

Totally we've been eating here 6-7 times in 2016/17. We rarely choose from the meny, but rather from the plate of today's fish. Delicously grilled with garlic, and as a spesial service the owner got my phone-number and called when our favorite fish had been...More
