Food was bland or unpleasant, service incompetent, offhand (requests for drinks had to be repeated after long wait) and dishonest (waiter took "tip" and made himself scarce when bill being paid). Overpriced for what it was, much better value and quality to be had in place opposite. Lesson learned, go elsewhere if you are after a reasonable dining experience.

If you look for a taste of local food , this is the place to go. DO not miss their specialties in cheeses.

If you want to try canarian food, this is the place! Nice atmosphere, amazing staff (let them advice you, they are pretty good at understanding customers' needs) and great quality/price. The owner produces cheese and you can try it here, amazing!! If you go there during weekends, it's better to reserve a table.

The food was of average quality and different in that the choice of meat was limited with goat and rabbit on the menu, no beef steak. The goat was challenging, a plate of bones with a dark coloured sauce. Unedible.

Went here with friends because the views from the terrace are great. El Medano is known as the windy town so you'll be in for a treat if you like watching the local kite surfers. The tapas was tasty and the service was ok. It's a nice place to go if you want to get out of the hustle and... More
