Was looking forward to our night out at Le Penon as it was my Wife’s birthday and this was the number 1 on Tripadvisor. I was a little disappointed. The food was ok the service was cheerful but they got my order wrong. This can happen so as long as they sorted it out, it would be ok. The waiter immediately blamed the Kitchen and spent over ten minutes on the computer. He then came and blamed the “machine” I ate what was provided as I did not seem to have much choice. I could see into the kitchen from where I was sitting and could not understand why he could not have gone and spoken to the Chef to sort out the order. But the “Computer said no” I suspect.

Vegetarian meal selection on the menu could be bigger, but the ones we chose were delicious. Wonderful staff: friendly and attentive.

Went here while staying in El medano, expected not much and were happy to have visited this place, location is nice and staff really kind, offering kind of live cooking (apperitiv or some desserts) the starters (fois gras and tuna carpaccio) just awesome, then we had the duck and cod fish, both were awesome, the sauces...great, the food or kitchen is really high class and excellent, didn't expect that in El medano, the prices are still good for that sophisticated kitchen, way cheaper than Germany but ofc no tourist junk food, your decision, if you like to have a really nice evening with also excellent service, this is a place to be, will def revisit this place

Another great recommendation from T.A....the food was very good but was a little put off due to the speed at which we were served. Still the staff were excellent, a lovely setting.. Again another not to be missed
