There is no doubt why this restaurant has Michelin recommendation. We randomly came there because one local old gentlemen recommended this place. It was not in old town, not in popular place, there were mostly locals... but the food, wine and service were terrific. We had black sepia with rice..... and it was the best rice experience ever in my... More

The restaurant was recommended by the waiter at our hotel Iberostar Anthelia, the food was amazing the iberico ham was delicious and so was the scallops and Octopus we had to start. We then delved into our seafood Paella which was out of this world....The food here is amazing! The service is fine, but can seem a little unfriendly. Don't... More

I have to say that the food, desert and coffee where good. We had the paella with lobster. Service was pretty slow and lacking of atention. We asked for recommendation and the waiter kept quiet (so no ideas for meal or wine). The bill was higher than expected but the tiramisu helped to let it go !

We went to have a paella and a restaurant speciality because we've seen on their website that they are connected with the Restaurant La Kocina witch we like a lot. The food is boring and overpriced. The waiters were arrogant and made us feel unwanted there. Maybe because they know that foreigners who speak English use trip advisor.

Myself and my wife went here last night after being told the food was very good, unfortunately we didn't get to try it, the front of house was the rudest we've ever come across. When we first arrived we asked if we could have a drink and just look at the menu, what appeared to be the main waiter, could... More

You'll see that I left a review for this restaurant in December 2012. When we returned to Tenerife in January I was really looking forward to going back to El Rincon. I called the restaurant and tried to make a booking. My Spanish isn't great, so I asked in Spanish whether they spoke English and the person said yes. They... More
