Very nice personel - good food and good music Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
Table reservation is recomended.
Locals jump in and sing.
We went there twice during our stay and will for sure come back next visit to the isla magica.
Do recommend this restaurant.

Ate here with my nine-year-old daughter last night. Some local musicians playing and a genial host made it a pleasant experience, but the waitress was borderline rude. Seafood soup was enjoyed by my daughter and although she couldn't finish her chicken breast it was tender and tasty. My swordfish with mussels and prawns was so-so, over-salted, as were the accompanying potatoes. Would return, because a warm welcome goes a long way, and the host is a nice guy.

Friendly priced restaurant slightly off the main road. The salad was very good, the deep fried goat cheese rather tasteless. The portions are huge, the quality average. We had sole, which was somewhat dry because baked too long, and cazuela with monk fish which seemed first baked and did not have much taste either. The wine, a 1996 Faustino I, was something rarely encountered in restaurants and thus quite special. Although still OK unfortunately already slightly over its top.

Really disappointed. The waitress hardly acknowledged us, no chat, no welcome, merely basic service . The food was ok , cuttlefish a bit tough but eatable , curtains drawn back so we could see the sun set, but no ambiance from the owners, nor any effort to make our dinner memorable . Ignore lonely planet's recommendation

La Gomera knows it's pedigree and Valle Gran Rey has El Palmar - the restaurant that's best in show! On two visits we were blown away each time. The catch of the day being top dish - the schnitzel a close 2nd (perfected for the Geman pallet) and oh so local!
Well done Javier. Hopefully see you again in the near future.
