Everything is amazing here. Food staff and atmosphere. If you like fish it's a must. Oh and ask for the mojo sauce it's unreal! Enjoy

We go back at least once every time we go to Tenerife. To the Terrible reviewers, it says something when there's only 8 of you out of over 400! For a start it's a basic fish restaurant, not a posh Michelin star restaurant. It's favoured by locals and many tourists as it offers fresh fish caught on the day and... More

Great place to try a traditional Canarian meal. The prices used to be lower some while ago, not its a bit higher, but still between 7 and 9 euro per plate. Take 3 or 4 plates for 2 persons and try different food. Beter come right after 6 pm, so you will not need to wait a free table.

Our second night in Los Cris and we found ourselves in this restaurant. The food wasn't too good, my cuttle fish was a little undercooked and the Canarian potatoes were not much better either, being quite cold, I felt that they were as if they had been left overs from the lunch service. Hubbies Fish of the day was grey... More

Look for the Pharmacy sign and you will see the little alley with the El Cine sign in blue. Full of locals which is always a good sign, this was recommended by the Staff from Dail Fountain and it proved to be excellent food at a very good price, had the bread to start followed by Hake Friendly staff and...

Returning to Tenerife on holiday it is a must to visit El Cine. The food is amazing especially the chicken wings, canarian potatoes and onion and tomato salad. For 24 years I have visited Tenerife and could not be there without going to El Cine. Friendly staff, efficient service and great food. Situated in a wee alley way in the... More

El Cine (the old cinema in Los Cristianos) came highly recommended to us. We have eaten here twice this year while in Los Cristianos. It is hidden up a small back alley, but easy to spot the queue spilling out onto the promenade! Not sure you can reserve a table so get there just after 12 noon. Menu has approx... More

A weird, unassuming place recommended to us by one of our hotel staff. Walking up from the car park at the Los Cristianos port if you blink you'll miss it but it's just up on the left once you hit the other beach walking into LC itself. However, had a lovely simple meal, efficient service. They give you bread which... More

We were recommended to Elcine by one of the bar owners. Without directions we would never have it. The place was full of locals which I think is always a good sign. Although the menu is limited everything was well cooked and extremely good value for money. We shall definitely go back as long as we can find it!!

As per previous reviewers, we heard of this place by word of mouth. Mostly locals eating here. Small backstreet cafe/restaurant at the back of Subway in Los Cristianos. The menu has around 8 fish dishes., canarian potatoes, chips and salad on it. Small choice but what they do is absolutely delicious. Very reasonably priced. A gem that is well worth... More
