I went there by night, but i think, if you would go by daylight, you also would get a very nice view. Make sure to take a table at the windows. They have very good steaks and lovely desserts (hey should make a menu with there desserts, because you need to ask for the desserts). Anyway i'm happy i've eaten... More

My wife and I ate here during out stay in Maspalomas. It's a couple of hundred yards up the road from the Vista Oasis, where we stayed. On arrival we were welcomed and shown to our seats, which have a great view overlooking the plateau and the backs of the dunes at Maspalomas. Our food was reasonable priced, arrived in... More

Being near our hotel we gave it a try for one evening, the steak and mixed grill were ok, you get what you pay for. The main reason for my bad experience is that whilst eating we soon noticed everyone in the restaurant had been given a different menu than ourselves. I soon realised that those who'd been given this... More

Strange restaurant that on first glance you would think "No thanks" but be brave and go try it. Good choice - especially if you like steak - chicken and pasta dishes as well. The mixed kebabs are well worth a try and the wine is reasonably priced. Good views down through the valley and in to Maspolomas makes for another... More

One of the best chateaubriands we have ever had in this unlikely venue, which looks a little basic inside and out but serves up great food with fantastic views over Maspalomas. Service was great too !
