Ideal location to watch over the beach

Good service, friendly staff and good food. Looks good on the main strip near Los Christianos, plenty of choice of either just drinks or full meals, food was delivered quick piping hot and tasty. No rush to move you on as they were busy, which showed is that is was a good place, too many on the... read more

Don't walk past this place . The service is old style traditional waiters who have the skills to chat and entertain as well as serve you. Great chilled atmosphere super choice of food all cooked fresh and very tasty . Right on the edge of the beach super super .

We had an evening meal here on Friday 10th July. Initially the waiters were good and welcoming but that changed after I complained about the raw chicken on my mixed kebab. I say raw which the centre was, the outside was slightly cooked. When I brought this to the attention of one of the waiters, he indicated that it was... More

We visited the restaurant, while taking the walk back from Los Americas, to our hotel in Los Cristianos. The establishment is in a superb setting looking out onto the promenade. The staff are very attentive and the menu exstensive. While I enjoyed a pizza for lunch, my wife and her friend preferred the club sandwich, which itself was more than... More

Just had lunch here, we had a pizza and spaghetti marinara. The food was OK nothing special so don't expect top much. Staff were attentive enough didn't really had a great need for them too much so can't comment alot on that.

The food served was only warm, and they had no reason as it was fairly quiet. I had the Mexican pork chop which was only ok but with a selection of what of vegetables and mash which... More

La Barca is on two levels - the lower level is the beachfront restaurant and the higher level (Heladeria) which can be accessed from the Vistasur Centre, is the less formal snack bar where I had the most delicious slice of gateau (€3) and tea. It was hard to choose which gateau to pick as there was such an amazing... More

Extensive menu to cater for all. Staff who can't do enough for you, we were with a party of 9 girls on a hen weekend. Great location overlooking the sea. Excellent value. I look forward to going again next time I'm in Tenerife.

We went one evening during a holiday in Tenerife. The menu selection was extensive, we opted for paella and were not disappointed. Desert was also nice. Staff were very polite and efficient.
