Had a wonderfully delicious salad after bread and olives, followed by a paella that was quite good but not amazing. Nonetheless, would recommend this restaurant for the experience, the service and would try another meal.

We ate here on a short break and did enjoy our meal very much. The starter I had of garlic mushrooms was a bit basic, simply chopped mushrooms, with some chopped garlic and hot oil, but couldn't fault the mains.

The food was good, very tasty, I had a steak with mustard sauce, the steak was cooked perfectly and the sauce was really flavoursome. The two waitresses we had were friendly, efficient and attentive.

If you are visiting El Medano (very windy at this time of year) town/village. I most definitely recommend the familiar restaurant, very warm, friendly, professional staff, the food is absolutely delicious food. A tip for anybody wishing to eat at this delicious restaurant, either try and reserve a table, or be there for the doors opening at 18.30

This is a very small and popular place and booking is advisable. The staff rush around trying to keep up with business and are friendly but don't give you much time. In fact I felt under pressure to eat up and leave since they wanted the table. The food was good but didn't justify the places popularity. Not as good... More

From the moment you walk in you know that you are in for a treat, the staff are amazing and so is the food. Book early as it's always full.
