My wife and I had a drive out and picked La Cancela for our evening meal because of the great reviews on TA. The decor of this restaurant is great. It's typical Canary Island style with plenty of volcanic rock and painted white walls. The...More

Not a huge fan of pizza but this restaurant changed my mind. Thin crust pizzas made to order and cooked in the pizza oven in the middle of the restaurant. Great service. Extremely busy place so be prepared to wait if you haven't booked.

Such a busy little place but well worth the wait for a table, our pizzas were superb, and sitting in the restaurant area you can watch it being cooked. Friendly staff can highly recommend.

The pizzas, cooked in front of you, are superb. Just watching the 2 chefs perform synchronised pizza making without crashing into each other makes a visit worthwhile. The staff are wonderful, friendly and attentive. The menu includes dishes other than pizza and is all delicious...More
