A very busy restaurant full of tourists. The staff worked well, but the quality of the food was poor. I asked what the soup of the day was, and told vegetable. I was supplied with a coarsley liquidised lukewarm tomato and capsicum soup that, if hotter would have been the tomato soup, and if cold would have been the Gazpacho.... More

Excellent quality of food and sufficient service. Great décor and felt very much in a Scandinavian restaurant.

The staff are very friendly, the food is great and the prices are very reasonable. One of the best restaurants I've tried at the Yumbo center and the T-Bone steak is huge!!

Went here to try the chateaubriand as it appeared to be good value at €30.50 for 2 on the menu.Some of the other dishes were not as cheap in comparison. This is a larger than usual restaurant and was busy when we arrived, but were seated quickly. Drinks and food were ordered fairly quickly as well. Although busy, the drinks... More

One of the best restaurants in the yumbo centre, ate here most nights steaks are large and delicious. Prawn cocktails are great too! Has occasional cabaret in the evenings, the Elvis impersonator isn't bad but entertaining, Waiters friendly and attentive

Ok I'm a solo traveller this time but my treatment was ridiculous. I walked around YUMBO looking for a place to eat on my first night in Gran Canaria. Skansen seemed busy, buzzing and welcoming. All anyone needs to know is that I ordered a relatively simple steak with mushroom sauce and chips and a bottle of sparkling water. After... More

fun place to eat, the staff here are always having fun with the customers, specially if its your birthday. Live music on most nights too, Elvis was quite good. Food was fab along with the service and the dummy sweets when your ready to leave

Wasn't sure about this place as it was quiet on arrival. Staff were professional, courteous and appropriately attentive from beginning to end. Menu was varied with something for everyone. We both tried the filet mignon. Having had bad experiences in the past we were cautious. We shouldn't have been. The steaks were perfectly cooked to medium rare as requested and... More
