“Great food, good service”
Reviewed 27 March 2014

Staff explained menu in English, although written in Spanish & German. Lots of specials.
Food excellent, portions larger than we expected. Wwell worth looking out.

Website map doesn't make it easy to find: It's on the main road from El Paso to Los Llanos de Aridane, on the right just before the Los Llanos turn.

“good quality food served in nice restaurant”
Reviewed 20 January 2014

food is very good, prices are higher than a random restaurant, but the service is more Northern Europe. We were there for a second time on Christmasday. They had very nice menu's. We did think that, because it was Christmas, a bit extra could have been given, like a amuse or a dessertwine of the house afterwards. That is quite normal in much cheaper restaurants and here it is expensive, but in that way nothing extra. The food was served quite quick, whitch we did not really liked. It was Christmas and we had hoped to sit a long evening at the dinertable. But still a good place to go for a special evening!

“Franchupani”
Reviewed 20 December 2013 via mobile

The menu was more limited than its nearby rival and the cost of the meal about 20pcent higher. However the steak was excellent....when it finally came ! After 50 minutes had passed since we'd
Placed our order and it was well passed our normal eating time I asked the owner if our food was nearly ready. I was amazed when he went into a routine about the fact that it was so thick it needed a long time to cook. But I ordered medium rare said I. Ah, but it takes a long time.

We didn't really enjoy the experience as a whole so didn't return during our 2 week vacation
