Having been to this restaurant for a number of years I was a little disheartened to see the recent mixed reviews on TA, as in the past we had always had some excellent meals here. We visited on a Monday night, hadn't made a reservation and managed to get the last outside table available (outside in this case means under... More

We are regular holiday makers in Tenerife and absolutely love La Barca Restaurant. The location gives you a stunning view over Playa de las Vistas to the sea. The place is great for lunch and dinner. We like to go there for a late lunch after spending some time first on the lovely beach in front. The Paella is very... More

I've been in Tenerife over ten times and when I'm there, I always eat in Barca! Pastas and pizzas are very nice and delicious. Actually everything is, but especially pastas and pizzas. You get good service and you can admire Atlantic ocean. Don't forget to drink fresh orangejuice in Barca! When you are going to the beach it's nice to... More

Just strolled by on our evening walk after being pestered by other restrateurs, but not at this one. Well, they don't need to tout for business, the food speaks for itself. The fish, cooked to perfection, the seafood mixed grill superb ( the spiny crab caught from the glass tanks in the restaurant) The best fillet steak I have ever... More

The location is right by the beach, you can see the ferry going across to la Gomera, the restaurant was very busy the first time we visited, but had first class service still. The menu is varied and my brother and I ordered steak, only about 9 € each, and was very tasty!. We enjoyed our meal so much we... More

I always go here in tenerife because of the location and alright the food is not amazing is acceptable but over the last few years the service has deteriorated and when we last visited we waited for 25 minutes for any service despite asking two or three members of staff for a menu and a drink. We eventually left and... More
