Tasty well cooked meal at a reasonable price in an attractive restaurant. The only drawback was chips, salad and other side dishes were extra unlike the nearby Central Restaurant. Very friendly staff. There is also an outdoor seating area overlooking the town square, though it is on quite a busy road.

A great restaurant in a nice location and very friendly staff. The food is good and plenty of it, a place the locals frequent also. You can either eat and drink inside or on the terrace and watch the world go by.

This is a friendly and welcoming restaurant in the town of Canico. We really enjoyed Carlos as a waiter, and the other waiter (can't recall his name, but he has a Chilean spouse!). We ate here twice, as it was so enjoyable the first time. We were able to sit outside for our meal, which faces a small square and... More

Stopped here because we couldn't find the restaurant that we were looking for. Food was good mushroom steak was great. Staff friendly reasonable prices. Recommend that you eat inside as it is next to a busy road.

The food and the staff are excellent! We visited the place almost every day as the tuna steak (plate of the day) with potatoes, vegetables and wine was not only the best quality but also reasonably prices. Poncha at the end (on the house for regular guests) is a perfect way to finish a delicious meal 😉

We had a lovely evening meal, staff very friendly and helpful. Meal was excellent. When we got to dessert one of our friends was unsure about one of the options so they brought a sample out to try.
