The garden is a really nice and cool location! The Paella was ok, actually I was expecting a typical seafood paella, but instead he prepared only a vegan one which was a bit disappointing.

we spent a great evening in Javiers magic garden, a unique place! Javier is an enthousiastic and wonderful cook, he explained everything , also all the little secrects, which make the canarian paella so tasteful. We drunk white wine from his fathers farm and ate wonderful passionfruit from there. After a while some of his friends passed by and we had interesting discussions. We can highly recommend this experience!

Great experience! Javier showed us how to make the paella, and it was absolutely delicious. He also served us Canarian wine and told us about some local great spots on the island to visit. He was very friendly and sweet, and even served us some traditional dessert his mother-in-law made. His little personal courtyard where he cooks and serves the paella is lovely too. Overall an exceptional experience my friend and I both really enjoyed - we just wish we had done it sooner so we could take full advantage of Javier's recommendations!

Paella in the garden with Javier is a wonderful experience. We felt welcommed from the moment we came to his house until we left. A fascinating garden, with a bohemian style, with room for the kids (of all ages) to play and for the adults to mingle. Javier, his wife and their friends were all very nice and easy to talk to. The paella tasted really good, and so did the tapas before and the dessert after the main course. Nice to see how the paella is cooked, instead of just getting it served. I highly recommend Javier’s experience, he is a great host!
