During our recent week in La Palma we ate in Restaurant Sadi twice. It is probably the most upmarket restaurant in Los Cancajos (linen tablecloths etc), but that is not saying much because most of the others are informal tapas bars / Cafetera etc. While there may be a small premium on prices, they remain very reasonable [we found meal prices on La Palma to be at least 20% lower than in equivalent tourist areas of Gran Canaria]. We also realised that we ate there 9 years ago on a previous visit to the island and it appeared to be under the same ownership (local residents of German (?) origin).
The standard a la carte menu offers a wide range of dishes from pizza and paella through to more typically Northern European dishes such as steaks in sauces. There are special dishes on a separate list, which claims to change weekly – but I don’t know which day it changes as it was the same all 8 days we were there and the ink was beginning to fade on the copy posted outside! Service is friendly and leisurely and staff are happy to help in English (we had some fun with the translation of pumpkin [soup] – very good).
We tended to select more modest dishes such a soups and pizza but enjoyed everything we had and had absolutely no complaints. Ambiance was exactly as you would expect of an unashamedly tourist restaurant with a clientele that reflects the visitors to the area. Most of the tables are inside but some are outside (road level at one end, basement level at the other side due to the slope on the road).
All in all, a reliable restaurant offering a welcome change from either the buffet offerings in the hotels or the typical local bar/ restaurant menu.
