Fresh fish and well cooked but pricey comparing to same quality options. Poor quality shrimps-not worth it. The tiny terrace has some nice views.

Upon the recommendation of a friend who goes to Fuerteventura quite regularly, ate here with wife and three kids (15, 13 & 9). All agreed that it was the culinary highlight of week-long trip to Fuerteventura.
