The desert was great, a real treat and special of the day by the chef. But the mains were quite average. Tinned veges is never a good start, especially when local produce is so good. Over cooked tuna is also a personal dislike.

Visited as a group of four, large dining area and terrace which was nice. Service was very prompt and our main courses were all tasty. But to top it all the chef came over to discuss dessert options and the chocolate empanadas were absolutely delicious plus one of our party has gone made banana ice cream. Would definitely revisit.

Since we only had a small meal (cheese, ham etc), we cannot say anything about the dinner, but the place is nice for a quick bite to eat. What we had was really tasty.

A nice restaurant not too for from the main town with a cosy atmosphere. The cheese board starter was delicious! The service was a bit slow but it was very busy.

We stayed in Hermigua, so the restaurant was a short walk from our place. We saved having dinner at the restaurant for our last evening in La Gomera. i can't say that the dinner was particularly memorable, but we weren't disappointed with the main course. However, the dessert was disappointing. Minimal, to say the least. And having a cup of coffee together with dessert would have made the experience more positive. Coffee and tea came long after. There was a group of 10 or 12 next to us, maybe the waiters were more interested in impressing them?
