Great intimate atmosphere with a thoroughly local authenticity; really lovely seafood and fish served by staff with character. Would recommend if you're in town.

We ordered fish soup, avocado salad and a big fish for two. The soup was too salty,the salad was fine but tomato too green but the fish was delicious and the white house wine was veeery good,so I can recommend it. The restaurant is old fashioned but it has its atmosphere 🙂

Went here by accident with no high expectation and was wow-ed. The food was delicious and the atmosphere great and local. Only downside is that today was very windy day and because of the single glass it was also chilly with some wind inside.

Had a wonderful meal here. I would really recommend the fresh cherna with Canarian potatoes. Lovely setting and lovely staff. I will definitely be back.

This year we sat near the kitchen, and were amazed at the quiet efficiency of the two chefs producing a wonderful variety of traditional fish and meat dishes, including beautifully cooked rabbit. Very welcoming and varied menu - worth a visit.

We go every time we visit, usually twice in a week! The staff are lovely, always remember us & will accommodate whatever you want. The fresh fish is amongst the best we have eaten anywhere in the world and the prices are so reasonable.

This place should be avoided. My wife ordered avocado salad and received a normal salad with the explanation that the avocados were to soft to serve and the waiter left before she could order an alternative. (They still tried to charge us for avocado salad at the end). I had octopus; thankfully a small portion was served as it was... More

We visited this restaurant as your reviews on here were excellent. We had Canarian potatoes and octopus for starters. The potatoes were dry and the octopus left my partner throwing up. The main courses were fried half chicken which was that dry my partner couldn't eat it. I had a fillet steak but was under seasoned and bland. Such an... More
