Went to this charming restaurant in February this year. Lovely little place on the sea front. The service and the food were both excellent. We had one of their signature dishes El Sombrero Fillet steak. Absolutely yummy and very reasonable. Gets busy so booking recommended.

To be fair before I start I want to be fair and say my party was very tired and not feeling great before visiting. We went in and got seated right away and both got drinks, we looked at menu and wanted to know if the tomato soup was smooth or chunky as my mum only likes tomato soup smooth.... More

Visited when we were last in town some 6 years ago and thoroughly enjoyed so we decided to revisit this time. Again we ordered the "Horca Del Pirata" which is a bit of a novelty, but we enjoyed it. This was the 1st night of our holiday and would have gone again, but it closed for annual holidays a couple... More

Lovely spot to sit and have a pre meal drink. Me and my girlfriend sat in the candle lights watching the ferries dock.

We loved it here. My husband said it was the best fillet steak he'd ever had. I had garlic prawns with Canarian potatoes and they were delicious. Sadly it was too windy to sit outside while we were there, but if you can on an evening, I would highly recommend it.

Had a meal here was okay nothing to get excited about. I think it's more about the trendy cook your own at the table thing which is fine if you like that sort of thing

This restaurant was absolutely packed when we arrived, and rightly so. Lovely, friendly welcome, and excellent food. We had fillet steak cubes, spiked on a wrought iron frame (very Spanish Inquisition) flambeed in front of us. Such fun and really delicious! Good wine and a great atmosphere. Must be wonderful in summer when you can sit overlooking the ocean.

We managed to get a table on a very busy evening, and although the staff were incredibly busy we were able to chat about dishes and share a joke with the owners. We decided to try the Pirates Gallows with staff and pork. Flambe in vodka and schnapps it adds a bit of theatre to the meal. The meat was... More

this restaurant is on the sea front, and the staff were all friendly. We had tomato soup and prawn cocktail to start which was nice. Followed by grilled sea bass, which was okay, just not great, and spaghetti with pesto. The spaghetti wasn't nice at all, and I couldn't even eat it to be polite. I think there was just... More
