Five of us managed to have a meal on the very last evening the restaurant remained in business, 31st March 2018. The food and service were very good. We wish Susanne and Risto lots of luck in any new venture they undertake. Hopefully, after they've profited from some R & R, they'll open in a new location in Playa San Juan where we'll be able to once again enjoy their eclectic mix of "soul food".

Definitely "food with soul" as it says on the gate to the restaurant. You feel very welcomed by the host and hostess who throughout the stay made an effort to make you feel your best. The food was great, but it is the soul of the place, that for us made it the best restaurant experience we have had in tenerife. Our host was superb in his recommendations, since he very quickly sensed, what we would like.

Really liked this place. Food was great and service exceptional. A mix of Spanish,m German and Finnish. We had all 3 (meatballs, Iberian stew and German sausage) - all would happily order again.

great outdoor space and stunning basement grotto like space - worth going to for this alone.

Will def return
