“Awesome tapas restaurant”
Reviewed 27 August 2014

If you're going to Gran Canaria - book this place now!

Carlos who runs the front, makes you feel at home and ensures you have the best service, speedy like New York and friendly like family!

Adrian the Chef makes the delicious dishes in the kitchen that leave you deciding between sacrificing your beach-body and having another two or three dishes! Together they make a perfect team.

Make sure you book, as it gets very busy, and they buy all the produce that morning dependant on the number of bookings they have!

Looking forward to my next trip to go and visit them again!

“Amazing service and the ribs are to die for!”
Reviewed 26 August 2014 via mobile

As most people say here, you must book ahead. We had to wait four days, but believe me the wait is worth it. The service is so personal you feel like you are a VIP. My only disappointment was that the food was so delcious we would have loved bigger portions. Honestly you will wish the food would last forever. We recommend the ribs, prawns and the octopus, but in all honesty there wasnt a bad dish in the entire meal.
My only suggestion would be that most of the main dishes came in portions of 5 and an even number would not cause arguing over the last peice :-)
A must do when visiting Playa del Ingles

“Best Tapas I have ever had!”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

Booked into this restaurant as were staying locally, and as it was No1 on Tripadvisor! And boy, am I glad we did!

When you see the restaurant, you could be forgiven for thinking it is just a bog standard restaurant in a shopping centre. It doesn't looked much, and is pretty small, and is indeed in a shopping centre! But there is nothing bog standard about this place by any means! All the food is explained to you, and is cooked fresh and brought out one dish at a time, and in a order to ensure you get the best out of every dish. Nice size portions, and very tasty.

To be honest I didn't think that much of Gran Canaria, but would return just to go back to this restaurant!

“Best tasting tapas i've ever had!”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

Service is extremely slow but once you get served it is very personal and friendly. The spicy pumpkin soup is the best soup i have ever tasted in my life! Got about 6 tapas dishes and loved them all!
