The location of this little bar couldn't be better, down a little alley from the main promenade it drops right down to the beach. We went nearly every day as we enjoyed sitting in the afternoon with a glass of cava looking out to sea and enjoying the view. From the terrace we could see the ferries going in and out of Fuerteventura and we often sat and watched the sun set. They do a deal for coffee and apple tart which we went along and had one morning too. We went in Jan and had a couple of windy days and did notice that we seemed to be protected from the wind sitting outside this bar so it felt a bit warmer too as we had the sun on us without the chill. We didn't eat here but all looked good and the staff were really friendly and chatty.

First found this "place" years ago so happy to rediscover.
My main memory now is of how rude the guy who served us was. He is a little geordie and i think he is the husband of the owner.Talk about a chip on his shoulder.We had a beer and when getting near the end of our drinks we re ordered another which didnt arrive, when I asked again I basically got a mouth full from him saying that we hadnt finished the first drink yet , how strange.
We later eat in the restuarant, must say that the fried fish was very good being a little critical i would say slightly undercooked,but that didnt really matter.NOTE what ever you do , under any circumstances , do not move a table or any furniture or else you will see his most aggressive and rude side.There were two others in the restuarant when i slightly moved a table and he went nuts saying that if he had a crowd in he would have to move us back ( 6 inches ) chance would be a fine thing....Thought he was joking at first but believe me he really wasnt.
Great views over the ocean, however when we left we felt like naughty school children who had been told off by the horrible teacher..... Toooooo many other great bars with great views to choose before this one

Went here for breakfast and yes the view is great.The food was average,overpriced and the decor was shabby. It looked like it could do with a good clean.The woman serving our table did not make us feel welcome,she was polite but unfriendly,we felt we were in the way.This was the only restaurant we had a bad experience during our holiday. would not return nor recommend it.
