Great food, great location, waiters slightly too friendly!

This restaurant offer food of an excellent quality, especially the seafood! We have eaten here a few times and always enjoyed the food. It is in a perfect location, right on the sea front overlooking the beach and the harbour just a short distance from the restaurant. The waiting staff are... read more

Having discovered la barca last year by chance, we returned to eat here twice this year. The menu is one of quite traditional Mediterranean and canarian choices, but is very extensive so should have something to suit everyone. The serving staff are professional and attentive, and the food, whilst more straightforward than some of the alternatives nearby, is high quality,... More

Went to this large seafront restaurant which always seems busy. Waiters were friendly and the prices very cheap. The lasagne (€4.50) ordered by two of the group was not too big but could satisfy a fairly large appetite. The Mexican pork chop (€9.00) came without the bone which was nice but not as good as the one on the menu... More

We decided to take a look at the menu and it wasnt expensive at all, so on our last night decided to give it a try. My wife had the Paella and there was mounds of and she commented that it was the best Paella... More

We went here twice in one week. Closer to a traditional restaurant - no theme or offer of British food. Fillet mignon was fantastic as were the king prawns. House red was perfect. Views out to sea. Would definitely eat here again.

We went there after a long day out hoping that they wouldn't disappoint us like many other restaurants in that area which serve food popular in UK or America such as English breakfast, steaks and fries, eggs and bacon. We were very happy that we chose La Barca. The prices are quite high but totally worth it. They serve Spanish/... More

We have eaten here often in past holidays to Tenerife and we were not disappointed by going back there again this March. It is so nice that we went there four times during our weeks stay in the area. twice for a small lunch and twice for dinner. Staff are courteous and let you take your time if you prefer... More

We've been to Playa de las Americas many times and always eaten at La Barca. We were concerned following a spate of negative reviews but decided to check it out for ourselves. Thankfully, as the title says, the concerns were totally unfounded. Staff were great and the food uniformally superb. One meal we always have there is the fish &... More
