We visited this restaurant after reading the excellent reviews. We didn't book and were informed on arrival that they were fully booked until 3rd Sept however they could fit us in if we could vacate the table by 10.15pm. We gratefully accepted although I was dubious about the truth of this as the restaurant was only about 1/3 full. The... More

Hi MCB1819 Thanks a lot for your words. It's really a compliment to our work. We know sometimes (specially on weekends) it's a bit complicate to find table in our restaurant. And as you know now some tables are booked really at 22:00 or 22:30. If the customer arrives at 19:30 or 20:00 without a booking we explain it and... More

Hi dejar Arnaud, only gay men can use a neckline? We've really an open mind dress code. But any one must to have a limit. And I think than if you go to a restaurant to have a romantic dinner a neckline is the limit, If doesn't depend if you're gay or hetero... Anyway, I understand than if you've a... More

Samsara is a very charming restaurant with a very enthusiastic proprietor, who has taken great care to create a memorable dining experience. I've read many rave reviews about this restaurant, which I can understand if you have no experience with real Asian food and you want to eat the watered-down European version. This is only fair, as the proprietor and... More

Hi Tim, thanks a lot for your time. We understand than some people don't enjoy the way we do the thinks. Fusion food to share (no we aren't an asian restaurant and yes we offer huge portions to try to create dialogue on the table) isn't an offer for all the people (as meat isn't an option for vegetarian people)....

Very good mixed cuisine. But remember to make a reservation. When you go to gran canaria, you must eat there. The boss is very dedicated when it concerns food preparing and service. Don't order to much, you can't finish it all. But he will stop you and tell you. Also very low price for a place like that. Greets Bjorn... More

A fantastic experience if your a foodie! It's a fusion of several tastes and they work together in culinary harmony. Heed the guidance of your informative host though, the portions can be big. We had two vegetarians in our party of four, all of us were well catered for. The desserts are works of art, make sure you save space... More
