It's located at Calle Crucero Baleares.
Avenida is closed on Mondays, hence a slightly further walk across Corralejo to Casa Manolo.
This is actually a charming little place. I was greeted cordially and a table just inside the restaurant was suggested.
The walls are adorned with souvenir plates and family items.
So far (!) I have been moderating my consumption of alcohol, so I ordered a pot of tea.
This was swiftly followed by crusty bread and alioli.
The waitress was eager to show me their specialities, and brought out a large baking-tray with fish they called dorada (sea bream?).
Then another tray of individual cooked cordero (lamb) appeared.
I opted for the fish, which duly arrived with thinly sliced potatoes and a medley of local vegetables.
The dorada was good: delicate, mild, and easily digested. There were two fillets on the plate.
The ancient gnashers had an evening off!
Tip One: Do not wear your best shirt!
Nevertheless, it was a well executed dish and the dorada was the main feature.
