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

We enjoyed a meal here with relatives and found the food and staff to be very good. The fish in particular was excellent. We would certainly go back if ever in Tenerife again.

We have eaten in this restaurant a few times over the years and have had some really good meals and good service. On some occasions, however, the food has been a bit disappointing. Usually their fish dishes are very good and I really enjoy their lasagne. This time the chicken brochette tasted a bit fishy for some reason and the... More

After visiting the above restaurant I can honestly say my daughters kebab was lovely however my sirloin steak was the worst steak I have ever had. I was willing to except this until the waiting staff went on the offensive suggesting that I had cut the steak at the wrong angle!

We stopped for dinner for a paella. It was very good and in big portion. They have a very rich fish selection. The sparkling wine was not really cold enough but they have been very keen in taking care to have a big ice box to cool it down quickly Directly on the beach, looks a bit less touristic than... More

We ordered the seafood of the day dish and it was a bit scary (squid, baby squid, clams, fish with heads on and guts still in etc etc.) Ate the lot - no ill effects and very delicious!

Nice and clean restaurant with FRESH sea food but without taste. I had grilled sea bas with salad and potatoes - the only good thing was potatoes. My friend tried an octopus which supposed to be grilled and didn't look like. In total we payed a lot for nothing special.

We visit this place every time we come to Tenerife. The staff are always friendly and in my opinion has the best views. We had lunch and would definitely recommend the pzza. Not the cheapest place to eat but in my opinion it is very good value for money.

On our first visit since then we were really looking forward to returning. We went on a lunchtime and I was so dissapointed with the poor service.The waiters with the... More
