We had a fish dinner! Carpaccio de palometa roja and bacalhao "a la cantera" (with garlic and potatoes), both really good. We had "papas bravas" too... Our waiter warned us they were really hot... And indeed they were, but were also deeply good! Desserts were something special too: maracuya mousse and, above all, pannacotta with gofio - incredible. Low prices,... More

We had an enjoyable meal here having dined in Tierras del Sur the previous night. The owner/manager was charming but under pressure because his wife was absent and he had to to all the waitering on his own. There seemed to be only one menu with the specials which had to do the rounds of the tables, so we didn't... More

The owner is reallly nasty and rude. The food is like fast food..all fried and really expensive. The place very nice but not confortable because of the owner. We also met the owner wife...I think she should change work and she doesn't speak English well. We won't go there anymore...the worse place we have ever been en Tenerife. Not recomended!!!!

The owners struggled with English but did everything they could to explained the menu as best they could, we where 90% sure of the menu afterwards. The food was excellent, fresh and tasty. Simple local... More

Thanks to Trip Advisor for directing us to this superb place. Normally would have not given it a second glance buy what we would have missed. Run by a charming couple and two fantastic chefs. Was so good we went back twice. Lovely internal décor and built into a cave. Plenty of space between tables and popular with the locals... More

From the outside (metal gates at side of 2 garage doors) you would not visit, Beyond the metal gates you will find a restaurant build into the volcanic rock with tables laid out with ample space between them. The owner was very good at recommending what to eat along with wine. The food was very good and not expensive, well... More

Wonderful food, specials on the chalk board, real quaint setting. From the outside doesn't look like a restaurant at all and inside the back of the restaurant is in a cave, gives a nice ambiance. Tasty food, good choice and friendly helpful staff. Will definitely be back.
