4.1

Canarian cuisine in a courtyard setting.

This is where I bring steak-eaters as it serves one of the best steaks in Puerto. The courtyard setting is very picturesque and very traditional, as is the menu.

Food and drink

It is typical Canarian cuisine featuring cuts of meat and fish dishes served with papas arrugadas and mojo (wrinkled potatoes with sauces). Not a good choice for vegetarians.

Recommended dishes

I like the succulent pork chops and the melt-in-the-mouth fillet steak in mushroom sauce.

Ambience

It's informal, noisy and bustling with a queue for tables on Sunday lunchtimes and weekend nights. There are lots of families and big groups; predominantly locals.

Service

The staff are efficient and friendly. If you haven't booked they'll squeeze you in but you might find service a bit slower than for those who have a reservation.

Location

Tucked into two picturesque courtyards, it's behind a fairly anonymous façade in the back streets of the old town.

Price advice

Starters cost on average 4.50 euros; main courses average 12 euros; sweets average 3 euros.

Tables to book

Sit either in the smoking or the non-smoking courtyard. Both are very pretty but the main courtyard is of course smoking - this is Spain.
