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

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

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
