Newly opened in spring 2012, the fish restaurant distinguishes itself with its wide range of high quality seasonal fish and sea food. For the most part Gerhard Schwaiger and his kitchen team will cook "à la plancha" (grilled) as this gives the fish and sea foods an outstanding and unforgettable taste. In typical Spanish style there will be market fresh sea products, fish served in one piece and Paella à la Schwaiger.The restaurant lies in an oasis of palms with a view onto the harbour of Puerto Portals. Ambience, service and cuisine are so perfectly coordinated that each visit will be a great culinary experience.

Drinks at capricho - champagne bar

Didn't eat at the restaurant but had champagne at the outside bar - capricho. It's not cheap as you can imagine serving Moët but it's a lovely relaxed and elegant setting. A glass is approx €14.50. We loved it as a treat before dinner as it was our anniversary weekend.

Had heard good reports about the restaurant so was looking forward to something special. The staff (in particular the sommelier) were excellent and attentive but the food, when it eventually arrived, I could only best describe as average. Consequently the overall price was very poor value ( although we had a significant drinks bill ! )

Appropriate personalised service, creative menu, excellent quality of food, and great atmosphere. Dining at Tristan is an experience you will want to repeat. P.S. Tristan is not an insider tip, nor this is a secret location. Tristan is a well known brand due to its past Michelin star prominence and it attracts all kinds of people from all walks of... More

The food, service and location exceeded expectations. The menu del dia at 29€ was quite exceptional. One michelin star without being stuffy - will return very soon.

Great location. The staff were really good, attentive but discreet. The food was really good, very tasty and well presented. It's not cheap but it doesn't pretend to be and certainly doesn't need to be. Well worth a visit.

The service and the food at Tristan`s are excellent. Don`t know if I want to spend that much money every night but definitely a great place to go if you can sit outside to enjoy atmosphere and food. The service is very professional, best place to eat in Portals, tried it 4 times, it is always good
