Quite easy to find off the Avenida de Bonn below Apartamentos Tinache. Recommended by friends and we were not disappointed. Had great tasting (and enormous!) pizza's at a very reasonable price. Slightly lacking in atmosphere as it was a January evening and not much to take in with the restaurant being tucked away but the food was great and very... More

Went here twice on a recent holiday to Playa Del Ingles, unfortunately the 2nd visit wasn't quite as good as the first. Probably the best food we ate whilst on holiday, good portions and excellent value for money.

Pizzas and fish we ate were superb. Odd location, but very nice atmosphere. If you want homecooked meal and true italian atmosphere that is the place.

We both love Italian food, so after reading some of the reviews on Tripadvisor, we were curious to try this restaurant. It's in a very odd location; tucked away under the Tinache apartments in Playa del Ingles, where co-incidentally we stayed as a couple on our first visit to the Island together over 25 years ago. The restaurant has a... More

Every time we are in playa we come to Al Circo, however the place is trying to pack to many tables in for the very small kitchen area and quite simply can't cope. We was sat outside at the front on picnic chairs not exactly what you pay for in a restaurant . For the size of the meal prep... More

Tucked away below Street level this place looks nothing special. We saw reviews here so thought we'd give it a go. Glad we did. Friendly staff and the food was excellent. The menu is big with lots of pasta, pizza and other items. For an out of the way place it was busy. Much more so than many of the... More

We were recommended to this restaurant by a local, which helped because we were slightly wary because of the location. There are some truly awful eateries in this area. So what nice surprise this turned out to be!! The food here is very authentic, nicely prepared by a very caring chef, and very delicious. We were also surrounded by Italians...... More
