I visited already three times (in two years), and I like this place. The service is very friendly and helpful. Food is seems to be traditional Canarian, and is as good, as this seems to get. Don't expect complex flavors or a variety of textures - but simple, down to earth food. I also like that if you order wine... More

We had dinner at this restaurant an evening during our holiday. We liked the atmosphere and the staff was really friendly. Good wine selection and the steak was sublime! Would absolutely recommend the place.

Being British we arrived before 9pm and got a table! The staff were really good and very helpful. The wine was lovely and we had really nice pudding wines recommended by the staff. But the food was nothing more than average. Salty peppers, soggy batter and cheese with tomatoes that anyone could have constructed. The puddings were obviously bought in.... More

I go to this restaurant often. I think it's one of the best Canarian restaurants in La Laguna. The food is very good and the price is fair. The only negative point goes to the service. Personally I find some of the waiters impolite. Once I reserved a table, when I arrived there I was told that it was not... More

The restaurant is situated in the basement, but the day we visited the weather was not very good so no sunligth was no problem. The place is very comfortable and cosy just what a winecellar should be like... We enjoyed a great variety of tapas. Especially the mixed plate with cheeses and meats were appriciated. The grilled gambas too. The... More

All the food we had in this restaurant was good, both in quality and quantity (but note that a medium steak would have been called rare in most UK restaurants). The house red wine was good value at 12 Euro – indeed this plus a two course meal for two, water and coffee was good value at a total of... More
