“A change from the normal La Palma food”
Reviewed 9 April 2013

On La Palma the food is normally good,but plain and simple. Therefore, Franchipani was a nice change. We had asparagus soup with a hint of bacon and pefectly cooked pieces of asparagus which was excellent. (although we turned down the addition of a poached egg which may well have been one flavour too many.)
The fillet steak was cooked exactly as ordered and accompanied by soft caramelised onions and mustard mash. The salad had an interesting variety of components and was dressed with a nice mango and chilli dressing.
Chocolate truffles provided a sweet end to the meal without the heaviness of a real pudding.
The price was similar to the UK except the wine was cheaper. Well worth the drive across the island.

“Good but overpriced food”
Reviewed 17 February 2013

I visited this restaurant during a holiday with my partner for dinner. We had the mixed entrees followed by chicken shawarma for me and rabbit for my partner. For drinks we had the house wine. For desert i had the tiramisu with passionfruit which was truly delishious.
The food was good though not great and reasonably distinguished compared to other restaurants in la Palma. Overall we felt that it was a bit overpriced and the food lacked just that bit of distinguishing quality that makes for a great compared to simply good dinner experience ( and we are not talking outstanding here)

“Accommodating staff and interesting food”
Reviewed 13 February 2013

On a busy fiesta day the owner managed to find space for us at short notice and translated the 'specials' board German into English despite being busy.
Interesting food, well prepared though the pork was perhaps a little undercooked. Average-sized helpings. French/German influence rather than local. Most of the clients appeared to be Greman-speaking.
