Really friendly waiters tempted us to try this place, service was fine but the food was poor. We had "grilled sole" and ribs. Ribs were ok but very tough, if you ribs that fall off the bone, this is not the place for you. The sole was not "grilled", I think it must have been shallow fried in far too... More

It is nice to sit on the second floor overlooking the old harbour. The waiters are nice, but the food was not good. We tried the sole with schrimps. Some of the fish was brown, and it does not taste good at all.

Staff were very patient, friendly and attentive when taking our orders. As there was so many of us, staff explained that it might take a... More

Restaurant was busy but we got a good table towards the back as it was breezy and colder at the front. We had a chicken and beef kebab, tuna in a Canarian sauce and both had a local dessert. No problems with food or service. Good wine list and the usual Canarian rum free with coffee.

When I go to this restaurant I always have a chicken fillet with salad. It's not exciting or even Spanish but it is amazing. I don't know what they do to the chicken (I'm probably better off not knowing!) but it's the tenderest, juciest chicken I've ever had. The lasagne is also pretty good. The staff are lovely, the views... More

Have visted the Mar Casa many times over the past 10 years and have always been satisfied with our visits. We often go with some friends who live on the Island and also eat here regularly. Staff and Manager have always been courteous and friendly and the food has always been of a consistently good standard. The Canarian Soup (Potage)... More
