Restaurant is near to the beach, almost on the beach, but still somewhat difficult to find if you do not know what to look after. Anyhow, the food is simply great - never ate better seafood than in here!! Worth for tasting. The restaurant itself is really simple, one could say stark (and this is the reason not to give... More

Extremely popular, you often see queues here. You eat outside a remarkably small kitchen and working space. Plain tables, no fuss. They've got a slick system going with a simple menu (mainly fish) and quick service. Prices have crept up over the years, you pay for each component of your meal. Unique experience.

Exactly what you want from a seaside restaurant, fresh tasty fish, simple sides and good wine. Would definitely recommend trying the octopus, it was one of my holiday highlights. Will return next time I'm in tenerife.

Tried the sardines, sword fish, prawns and octopus (but not at the same time) - all were excellent. Need to get there early for dinner (6ish) to avoid queueing.

Busy may have to queue. Good vibe. Staff attentive, helpful. Great for seafood - only alternative chicken wings. Reasonably priced.
