Recommended by the hotel. Fresh fish, sort of an up market outdoor chippie with a drinks licence serving local produce. Clearly popular with a queue most of the time. Filled a gap and thoroughly enjoyable !

Make sure you visit this gorgeous restaurant, cosy place to eat tucked up off the main strip! Not expensive at all, quality food and great surroundings :) It's my second home in Tenerife:)

We saw queues here from the promenade and knew it had to be good. It wasn't good it was GREAT! Simple menu with outstanding quality fish cooked and served simply with a fantastic choice of wines: red, white and pink ... You tell them what colour. Ha ha. It was all great!! All 4 of us highly recommend this restaurant.

It's always a great experience walking in El Cine. The food is simple but delicious. I love the service they offer, very friendly and kind... It is typical place in Los Cristianos where to go either for lunch or dinner. Everyone should taste it once in Tenerife

The night after eating in neighbouring Abordo we stood in a short line to get a table in the ever popular El Cine . Menu has a reassuringly narrow choice and today's catch is always additionally available. Food is fresh fish ( Hake ?) and shellfish simply prepared in there tiny kitchen. With the perennial queu and lack of charm... More

Never fails to deliver excellent and so fresh fish dishes. Would recommend the grilled hake or grilled prawns. So reasonable too. You may have to queue to get in but it's well worth the wait! Very popular place.

Ok so this may not be the prettiest restaurant but makes up for it with good atmosphere friendly waiter's and simply the best seafood. Don't miss it if you fancy a good fish dish.
