Food and drink
There is nothing fancy on the large menu here: fresh fish, decent salads, simple sandwiches, all local or Spanish style, but it is all done well. The house wine I had was very decent and there is good coffee served here too.
Most people choose to eat al fresco at one of the plastic tables, with the sun on their faces and fine people watching. There is also an air conditioned restaurant, which is very attractive - that was empty on the sunny lunchtime I visited.
The round waiter who served us was fast on his feet yet still managed to smile during the busy lunchtime rush. You may find someone is waiting for your table, though, so don't expect to be able to hang around for too long after you have finished your meal.
It's on the pier next to a small beach in the resort of Puerto del Carmen.
A parrillada mixta - a mixed plate of fish (three different kinds) with some salad was a very reasonably priced 12 euros, especially as it was big enough for two. A very drinkable glass of wine was just a couple of euros. Annoyingly, we were charged for bread, even though we didn't order it, although that is pretty much par for the course in Spain.
