Excellent for tapas

View, food and staff superb. Will definitely go here again for tapas.There was a good choice of both tapas and meals and it was also relaxing to just enjoy a drink whilst looking out to sea.The staff were so nice, helpful about choices but not pushy.

El Pinch of is a lovely little bar resteraunt in San Telmo looking out to sea. Wonderful friendly service served by Nurie herself.. lovely Spanish lady who speaks perfect English and will make you most welcome. Nothing is too much trouble. You will want to visit there again and again and the food is fantastic.

We stumbled upon this place by accident. Delicious tapas, beautiful sea views and the best pina colada on the island! X

Visited here twice during our stay in Los Cristianos. The first time we were looking for somewhere along the beach to have a drink and chill for a bit after a long walk from out hotel! There were so many places along the front begging people in, but this place wasn't and we loved that, especially because it was still... More

Overlooking the beach with fantastic staff. Lovely cocktails and nice tapas can't go wrong when you stroll in here midday to find a break from the sun. Bubbly staff you are always smiling and grateful for your visit. Highly recommend

As soon as we decided to return to Los Cristianos, we knew we had to return to El Pincho, and we are so glad we did – we spent two fantastic lazy lunchtimes of our holiday here. The most notable thing about this place is the service – the manageress and her serving staff are amongst the most friendly, upbeat... More

We've to a nimber of real nice tapas bars in Spain and elsewhere. El Pincho would not leave any special memory. The service was fast, pleasent and in english (although we could talk spanish to...
