“great value and an authentically local experience”
Reviewed 11 June 2012

There may well be other authentic Canarian restaurants on the island but this one has the advantage of being close to Santa Cruz. It was friendly, informal and full of locals at 3 in the afternoon.

The atmosphere could be described as lively. It would certainly not be suitable for a quiet romantic outing.

The quality of the food was excellent. In our case we had barbecued chorizo, barbecued pork fillet and mixed salad. The red house wine was strong and delicious.

The meal was good value for money, our bill came to less than 15 Euros for two.

“Worth the wait”
Reviewed 11 January 2012

We visited on a rowdy Sunday afternoon apparantly after the local football team had won a game. They were a bit noisy and drunk waiting for their table along with about 20 of their closest friends. This is a tiny little place and we nearly left, thinking it would be too much for us. The place was already full of locals and about 10 more waiting as well. We were the only Anglo tourists in sight. We had to wait about 30 minutes but. felt it was worth it to experience the true local atmosphere. You have to kind of barge in and go to the door to the kitchen to get your name on a list. There was no one keeping order so it was a bit chaotic. We enjoyed wandering around the lovely cobbled square and exploring the beautiful church which is worth a visit even if you don't go to Las Nieves to eat! We had one set meal with pork chops and one with pork steak. THe chops were the most tender and tasty - with two huge 3" thick chops plus potatoes (not so great) and salad along with soup. Also ordered bread and the local wine, which were wonderful. The pork steak was also huge, but a thin cut and very well done so not as tender; we ended up taking most of it away for a picnic the next day! No English spoken but we got by with a bit of basic Spanish and pointing at the menu (which was in English and German as well). The staff were competent, not particularly friendly, but still got the job done. A great experience and great for a late afternoon dinner. We got in just under the wire at 5 pm, and they never had a break before the ;7 pm official dinner started.

“Paradise for Meat Eaters, and excellent value.”
Reviewed 24 April 2010

Firstly location quoted is incorrect. It is 3kms out of town not 0.3 and it is situated in Las Nieves by the Church in a very pretty spot. The food is excellent, mainly meat and cooked on the barbecue. Value is excellent and the portions enormous. The wine list is extremely comprehensive and very reasonably priced.

Meat is priced by the kilogram and the pork chops I had were by far the best I have ever tasted. A must if you are staying in Santa Cruz de la Palma.
