My wife and I have been coming here Sept/Oct for four years running. The owner (Domenica) and husband (Antonio) are lovely. He is a fisherman by day with his father and all the fish is literally off the boat to the kitchen.
A small choice of menu, but that is their aim. As a small business and kitchen, what they do is cook good local seafood and do it well.
We’ve had limpets, squid, different types of fish, bruschetta, sautéed potatoes and more.
The wine is mainly Canarian and well priced. A quiet place, frequented by the locals, especially at the weekends.
We look forward to our next meal and evenings with a bottle of wine there in 2019!

First off would like to say the owners seem very nice people and mean well.
My Fish was cooked lovely (John Dory) but the accompanying potatoes and mixed vegetables were a let down, the veg reminded me of tinned veg, I feel that the fish would have been better served with the traditional Canarian wrinkly potatoes with the mojo sauce and forget the veg. Maybe some garlic slices in the skin would be a nice touch and a sprig of rosemary slice of Lemon.
My wife had the Squid Which she enjoyed but would have liked it served with some Aloe and slice of lemon or lime and the aforementioned potatoes.
We were not pushed in to buying bottles of wine like some other reviews mentioned but we did have quite a long wait well over 30mins and the only ones there (although to be fair was told the fish would take a long time to slow cook.
We were presented with a kids plastic bucket with some mediocre bread in and nothing else while we waited.
After paying the bill which was very reasonable we were presented with a very generous Tia maria on ice each.
I would not eat there again mainly on the basis of the veg and lack of Accompaniments
I know the owners read these reviews and I would like to see their restaurant prosper in the future and hope they find my criticism helpful.

Located on a lovely side street near the harbour. Full of atmosphere as the night went on (we found in Spanish culture they tend to eat out later). Owner was extremely helpful, chatted about how the restaurant opened and a bit about her life. We picked the fresh fish of the day, later realising it was what we call ‘John Dory’ in the UK (from finding Nemo). The fish was excellent, nice and tender and just what we were looking for in a traditional fish restaurant. Potatoes and side salad were unreal. The owner recommended a lovely wine to accompany the dish also. Highly recommend.

A very authentic local place. Attentive service from the owner who brings out the fresh catch on a big platter and asks you which you would like. Honestly, we were well out of our depth amongst the Barracuda and other options so we asked for her recommendation and she offered us a mix. We ended up with Octupus (really great), squid and Barracuda with rosemary potatoes and ratatouille. A couple of glasses of local wine (be warned they have some sweet wines as well as dry) and we were stuffed and happy. Great place.

Visited due to all the positive reviews but was very disappointing.
The fish was well cooked but the rest was so bad I would not recommend.
The menus is very limited and the only fresh items are the fish.

Buenas tardes!
Cuando se leen los comentarios, hay que leerlos, muy muy muy bien y atentamente!
En todos los comentarios que nuestro huéspedes han escrito, desciben que, el menú depende del pescado que se pesca en el día!Eso es para garantizar un producto fresco.
Si preferien barullo, movida y un menú con muchas opciones, no reserva en un restaurante donde hay 5 mesas y quien lo lleva son solamente dos personas, la dueña y el pescador.
Siento su decepción.
Siempre se describe la carta,y siempre explicamos que si no es de su agrado pueden marcharse y no sentirse comprometido, aunque hayan reservado la mesa.
Opinamos de non quieremos cambiar nada.
Solo aún más atención a las personas que nos visitan y al producto que vamos a compartir con ellos.
Me alegro siempre que esto comentarios nos ayudan todavía más a elegir comensales que solamente aprecian nuestra forma de vivir la gastronomía.
Muchas gracias y adiós
