We were recomended this place by a local whilst looking for another restaurant. It's hard to find and you would walk straight past it if you weren't looking. It's a small restaurant and you might have a 5 minute wait for a table but this is testament to the quality of the food. They got us seated... read more

Been to El Cine bar many times over the years. It is still one of our favourite places. We had the fresh Tuna (Albacore) and it was out of this world. Onion and Tomato salad with dressing, chips, tuna, chicken wings and Gambas, every mouthful delicious. Not the greatest of surroundings but a fabulous authentic atmosphere and great value for...

I have been here several times and it's always been excellent, although the décor isn't! You usually have to queue as the locals use it too - but that's a good sign, particularly at El Cine. There is no view; it's behind the seafront shops, so the food has to be pretty good. It's basic in presentation too - usually... More

Great place to eat. Basic presentation & the food arrives when it is ready there is no standing on ceremony. If you don't like fish they have chicken on the menu too. I dislike restaurants that need to cajole you inside, this restaurant doesn't need to as there is a queue to get in the place by 8pm. I never... More

I visited this restaurant many times! The food is excellent! Not so many options of food but everything is delicious! My favorite plate is Pulpo, the best in the south of Tenerife. The place looks awful and sometimes you have to wait long time to get a table. But it worth for it. Excellent food!

This place was reccomended to me by friends who live in Tenerife and I had high expectations about the seafood (especially octopus). But it wasn't so good. Seafood was average, service is not too friendly (like in touristic places), and the surroundings were not too nice to watch.
