Good

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.

This restaurant is located on the beach with great views across the bay. The staff were'nt pleasant and didn't make you feel welcome. 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.

Very comfortable restaurant near to the beach, very delicious food, something for everyone from the pizzas and lasagnes to shrimps, fresh fish etc. The staff were very friendly. No fine dining but very good anyway - would recommend!

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
