Good food and efficient service

We ate here several times, going back because we had enjoyed the food previously. The staff became friendlier as they got to know us. We ate a lot of fish, but also steak, lasagne. The chips are really nice. Try the honey rum which they give you free at the end of your meal...yummy.

My wife and I have been regular , twice yearly, visitors to Playa del Ingles for many years. There are many restaurants along the Paseo de la Playa and they will suit all tastes. Columbus has consistently provided good service at very reasonable prices and the food is excellent and we always visit them. On my last trip they served... More

Discovered this lovely restaurant and used it frequently. Food was always great, good value for money, drink prices reasonable too so not getting stung for your drinks either and service exceptional. Will always be our first choice when visiting Playa Del Ingles again

We have been coming to Columbus for 19 years and each year the food have always been superb. Situated next to the beach, the restaurant offers outdoor and indoor seating. The menu offers a large range of dishes at different prices. The best dishes they offer are the grilled squid, white grouper or the peppered steak/pork. The portions are generous... More

The restaurant has a beachside location on the playa, but is protected by walls and windows so sand isn't an issue. Large sized portions and friendly staff made this an enjoyable dinner.

Right next to the beach this restaurant has plenty of choice. The food is well presented and portions are large. The staff all speak English and are helpful and pleasant. Prices are very reasonable. We returned on a number of occasions at various times of the day. Try the real fruit smoothies for a hangover cure!

Staff were so welcoming we went back 5 times in our holiday, they were so attentive and friendly couldn't fault them at all! We tried a different meal every night and was more impressed each night, we just wanted more! You get free appetizers and honey rum which are lovely little extras! Ignore the negative reviews definitely give this restaurant... More

I do recommend this restaurant for those who'd like to sense a real spanish-canarian spirit. We were never going to eat there in the first place. However we switched our mind after a small talk with the restaurant staff (they are really very communicative). What is the most surprising, the staff recognized us the next day when we were strolling... More

I visited this restaurant twice during a recent holiday and I feel as though I must have been visiting somewhere different to the place reviewed by some of the other reviewers. We had a very enjoyable meal on both occasions, and found the food good and varied. The gazpacho was particularly good, as were the pizzas. My friend got the... More
