We were recommended to go there for their 'Pollo al Ajillo' (garlic chicken) and other dishes with local 'mojo' sauce. We were not disappointed! The terrace has fantastic views on the mountains behind. It's a great stopover as a "lunch reward" after walking the 2 hours-ish trek in the 'Barranco del Infierno'. Don't expect any fancy dressed-up table, just basic... More

The approach is by a very steep hill and the anticipation mounts as you try to get in the small car park. Disappointment is an often used word and you won't simply be disappointed you will be very very disappointed. Spicy chicken turned out to not be spicy at al, it was simply a very dry old bird and for... More

Well it's true, the fried garlic chicken is quite possibly the best I have ever had. Went on a Monday night with live guitar music and all the staff in traditional ware. Super fun night out and the service was excellent, very friendly and attentive. And did I mention that it's a really good deal to.

If you are looking for a great view while you are drinking a glass of wine or eating some ordinary food i recommend this place. The service is good and the prices are ok but dont expect food that will make you come back. Just enjoy the view and eat some garlic chicken. You will be satisfied!

Another restaurant that relies on its hype and the fact it is well established on the Tenerife map! Not worth the trip up the hills at all. Very unfriendly staff, they seem to not want you there! They just want your money. We had the house specials which was rabbit and garlic chicken. Both average with the chicken slightly above.... More

Excellent food, very good value but horrendous service. The most miserable group of people I have ever met! Such a shame when the food is so good.
