This looked quite good so we gave it a try and up to the delivery of the main course it was really good but thereafter we seemed to be forgotten about, we waited ages before a waiter came to clear away the dishes, then about 10 minutes before we decided to try and attract another's attention for a sweet menu,...

Firstly we stood waiting to be seated for around 10 minutes so I decided to go up to the waiter and say "can we have a table@ he said "yes" then just pointed at a table and left us for another 10 minutes. We was celebrating our engagement so wanted to splash out on champagne and a nice 3 course... More

Great view! The only positive thing about this restaurant. Such rude waiters and poor customer service. I wasn't sure what I wanted and they got annoyed when I asked for a few more minutes. I settled with the 'La Barca' salad, named after the restaurant at 9.50 which should be avocado, prawns and anchovy! When it arrived, I was shocked... More

This restaurant has a great sea view, is more traditional than many "full English" types. Staff friendly although seem quite at first, talk to them and they were lovely. Food great, my Wife and I went several times, steak was good but fish of all types fantastic. Good value and even the houses wine was good, for desert crime brûlée... More

Great restaurant, the best I ate in in Tenerife, reasonably priced drinks and menu excellent staff. This place doesn't need a guy pacing up and down outside trying to get passers by in, it's prime location and excellent food gets people in regardless. I had dinner there twice in a week and ate out at other places which also had... More

A lovely setting but the food is nothing to write home about. Four out of five of us had overcooked, rubbery chicken which came with powdered potato that had no seasoning on it to even try to disguise the fact that it was powdered potato!!! To be fair though the one person who ordered tuna had no complaints as his... More

We've been coming to Tenerife for a few years now and we always pay at least one visit to La Barca during our stay! The waiters have always been friendly and the food has always been good with prompt service. Would definitely recommend. Prices are very reasonable. Between €6-15 depending in what you have but with a view like this... More

Had a cooked breakfast here which was nice. Fresh orange juice was refreshing. Came back to try Paella for the first time and it was fantastic. Great taste and no ill effects. The waiter who served us all night was polite and plated our Paella in front of us. When we did not receive our Canarian Potatoes to accompany our... More

If you are looking for a cuppa (tea or coffee) with cake then this is the place to go to. It is in the Vistasur Commercial Centre at the back of the seafront La Barca restaurant but under the same management. The choice of gateaux is fantastic and you will have difficulty choosing which one to have! As the name... More

We really enjoyed both our visits to La Barca - definitely worth a visit and not to be off put by some review below. The restaurant stands out above the other restaurants along this particular strip (hence taking the time to write this review). The food is delivered to an extremely high quality (especially the fillet steaks!) and the charming... More
