    Great property and setting. Food only average. Location marked in google map link is misleading. To find the place takes initiative.

    Gorgeous building on the side of the mountain, at first we thought it was a joke having to drive down this steep tractor path in pitch dark, when we finally saw the building we thought it was closed as it was so dark, then some very dim lights shine through the windows, no signs no lights, a flight of very dimly lit stairs and we were greeted by the waitress at the top who couldn't understand the words we had a reservation in English, Spanish or Italian.... Never mind she sat us down and I asked for the bathrooms as my four year old daughter needed to go we were somehow directed outside through a backdoor to total pitch darkness...again I thought this was a bad joke went down a flight of stairs holding my daughter with one hand and my lighter in the other and found the bathrooms only to find the light switches not working! So we gingerly made ou way back after tripping twice! after explaining to the waitress there was pitch darkness she sent someone to sort it out and after a few minutes they told us the lights were now on....only to find they were off again the second time I went bathroom... The food was well made and presented but heavily lacked flavour and was as if the chef had not heard of salt! The building was an old farmhouse beautifully decorated with lovely tables well set but the lack of lighting made it very dangerous and I don't think that the management cared or realised how dangerous The food quality was good and also presentation but did not make up for lack of salt and flavour.

    The location is lovely, the building fascinating and service attentive. However, we found the food a little disappointing having read the Trip Advisor reviews. The goat's cheese salad starter was delicious and nutty but mean on the cheese. The squid croquettes were nothing special. The beef cheeks were tender and tasty but the accompanying sweet potato puree didn't work for us. A green vegetable would be much nicer. The pork rib was sauceless and served lukewarm. The accompanying chips were soggy and mixed with peppers, also lukewarm. The local wine was delicious. Maybe we didn't choose well??

    Sorry for using English... Everything was perfect, except two things: - as a minor issue I would rate the camino towards and especially away from the restaurant as a bit tricky. For us ok, for someone more coward than us it could be a reason not to come to oftenly - we had a family with two little children next to us and the smallest boy was totally uninterrested in eating or behaving - of course not, we wouldn't have been either in that age. We didn't have fun with this table next to us... My question is if it wouldn't be a better deal for the restaurant to very friendly not accepting kids under a certain age. Sorry, I'm definitely not a kid-hater but in such a nice place i'd rate it better for the overall business result if it would be kid-free. Just my opinion. By the way, this is what many places in central Europe do. But overall we liked the restaurant!

    A wonderful surprise when we entered the beautiful Dining Room. A truly excellent meal accompanied by the most delicious wine and served by truly professional staff Julie and Rosina. In all a most perfect evening meal and without doubt the very best restaurant in the beautiful island of La Palma . Well done .. 100 out of 100
