Each to his own opinion I'm sure .......... but we use San Remo regularly as it is only a few steps from our community, and it is now our number one choice in the PS/LG area. We regularly pass by the entrance El Timon to walk down the stairs to San Remo because the food (in our opinion) is much better and the atmosphere far superior.
In fact last time, just a couple of weeks ago, it was almost embarrassing that we had to say 'hello' to Christian, the boss of El Timon, at the top of the stairs in order to get down the stairs to say "Ola' to Jose, the boss of San Remo. But hey ..............
I have now twice had the Fillet of Pork in Oporto sauce and found it delicious and a very generous dish on both occasions. My wife also had the Salmon our last visit and she did not complain at all, as I know she would have if it had been 'cold'. I had the Chicken San Remo at that time and it was also delicious.
Over our many visits since San Remo opened about three years ago, we have regularly has the Spaghetti a la Fruta de Mare which is full of sea food and a delicious sauce beneath the spaghetti, their Fillet Steaks are to die for, particularly the Fillet Steak Roquefort.
San Remo has just the right atmosphere for a quiet, even romantic, night out with it's inside/outside setting, very welcoming owner and staff and quite reasonable prices (compared with the other establishment below it).
If any of our dishes had failed to please I am sure that I or my wife would have brought it to Jose's attention right away, and he would have 'sorted' it - but we have never had that need so far in our mny visits.
San Remo is now number 1 on our list following Martini in El Varadero and Pescadore Uno in Los Gigantes (which had previously been our number 1 up until recently).
We also used to frequent El Timon when it first opened almost 7 years ago and we became quite friendly with Christian. But over the years we have used that restaurant less and less to the point where we always pass it by nowadays. The food became 'bland', the service very off hand, the dragon of a Scottish lady who used to serve us begrudgingly, having to climb over all the family kids toys at the entrance to the restaurant to get to your table (not a way to run a professional restaurant in a very competitive area). It all lead us to leave.
The staff at San Remo are also very attentive and professional from Jose himself, through his charming daughter, waiters David and the new young but very enthusiastic, Manuel. Unfortunately Jason, who was extremely good, has just left for personal reasons (he wants to work days - not nights - to see more of his growing son).
However, we will be back again and again........... until we find anywhere better, that is !
