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.

Good Food, unfortunately empty

We really enjoy the food at Tristan, however, compared with the other restaurants in Puerto Portals the atmosphere here is completely lacking. It is a much stiffer restaurants than its neighbours, and it is often only half full, if that. It's a real shame because the food is really great, but in... read more

A must experience. From start to finish, wine food was fabulous. Views even better. Small boutiques surround the restaurant so a great way to finish the day.

We booked ahead and were seated at a fabulous table overlooking the port - great for people watching. The staff were very attentive and pleasant. The food & wine were lovely & the restaurant itself is stunning. I would highly recommend going here for a special meal, although the prices were higher than other restaurants it is well worth it!

This Restaurant is simply the best on the Island. The food is divine and so is the service, ambiance and location I defy anyone not to love it. The signature dish of homemade light as a feather pasta in a Parmesan and white wine sauce is to die for

Smiling like casting for a Broadway show but unprofessional service. A champagne cocktails goes for 24 EUR a piece! Long wait until we could order and an even longer wait until we were served the first course. During the long wait we ordered a 2nd round of cocktails which was served together with the 1st course. Food on the other... More

Firstly, this restaurant is in a beautiful location, overlooking some stunning yachts of the super rich. Very nice decor and good service, at least until a celebrity couple arrived and we suddenly got a little forgotten! Starters were good, however the main courses weren't quite as wonderful as we would have hoped, and probably aren't quite worth the price. The... More
