AMAZING tapas. Best one in Tenerife (out of the ones we tried and we tried a lot;)). Sat by the open window looking over the sea. Excellent red wine as well and outstanding service. Can highly recommend.

We Visited in February and ended up coming back twice more (you were closed once though :( ) Fantastic food. The Baby octopus was so tasty, as were the Croquettes. Best Tapas in el Medano by far, the other place does not compare!! The lady serving was very helpful and attentive also. Looking forward to coming back next week

I can only assume what's up due the high season - anyway, the staff was very friendly, patient with changes on the menu and the sandwich was delicious.

We visited first for a lunchtime baguette and were so impressed by the food and service returned for dinner and lunch again the following day. The padron peppers, aioli potatoes and garlic prawns were delicious and washed down well with a very acceptable house red wine.

We can absolutely recommend garlic prawns and padrón peppers. We really liked the tapas, the music and the view on the sea.

very nice food with a lovely view of the ocean, just the portions are very small for the money, service could be a bit better and faster
