This well hidden jewel offers a small selection of freshly cooked tapas, we had the tomato salad, hake, canarian potato and kalamari which were amazing...however the prawns and cuttlefish on the next table looked delicious! Sadly we were only in this town for a morning but will definitely return if we are in Los Christianos another time. Great value for... More

We visit every time we visit Tenerife and are always very impressed. We love getting the pulpo (octopus), salad (onion and tomato) and papas arugadas (Canadian potatoes) smothered in Tenerife mojo sauce. If in Los Cristianos looking for authentic Spanish food Bar El Cine is a must visit.

We always say each time we come back to Los Cristianos something will have changed! Businesses come and go! But thankfully Bar El Cine has stood the test of time. Apart from a little bit of a face lift nothing has changed here! still excellent value, good food in basic backstreet surroundings. Unfortunately they had run out of Canarian potatoes... More

Well recommended tucked away up a lane at the side of the Farmacia opposite the small pier at the end of the beach..Fabulous cooked fish from a limited menu. We had Gambas, Hake, whole pulpo, Canarian potatoes, calamari, El Cine wine. What a great meal and atmosphere

Friendly staff,good atmosphere but I personally didn't think the food was great. Food is a very personal thing,if you like fresh fish then I'm sure you will enjoy it,but not being a... More

We always make a special trip into Los Cristianos for El Cine. Wonderfully cooked fish (not grilled and burnt like most of the others). Very large portions. A small menu meaning everything is cooked to perfection. I know they are busy but still the staff don't welcome you in a friendly way and can be brusque - but all else... More

I have come back here regularly since I heard about it. Some people we have met come straight here from arriving at the airport. Lunch here and enjoy plates of prawns, hake, sardines even octopus. Try to avoid 12 - 1 unless you want to queue in the lane to wait for a free lane. It is found up a... More
