We went here - hoping to experience realnnice tapas dinner. It turned out to be very casual, nothing special, simplest dishes - really nothing special. 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...

We had lunch here three times here during our week long stay in Tenerife, on our... More

El Pincho's is a definite must and once you have been there you will go again and again. Nuria (the owner) greets you with such a warm welcome you instantly like it there. You are brought a free tapas with you drinks. The food is excellent and you must try to Canarian beef. Jose makes the best sangria and you... More

Called in here for drinks with my family. We were greeted by an amazing lady who was so friendly and couldn't do enough for us , making us feel very appreciated. She provided free tapas with our drinks and nuts . She even refilled my sons bowl when she saw he'd eaten them all. Shame we didn't go here sooner... More

Walk along the promenade from Playa de Las Americas in the direction of Los Cristianos and you will see on your left a white wall look up and there is Bar El Pincho. Climb the few steps and you will be on a terrace with umbrellas to shade you from the sun and with a superb view out across the... More

We are just back in Belgium after a winter in Tenerife. We went to El Pincho about 5/6 days a week, not only for the food and drinks but also for the fantastic service. The owners Nuria and Josee are offering very good at very good prices. Their staff Bea, Sandra, Jimena and David are very friendly and give a... More

We were only in Los Cristianos for one day or we would probably have returned here again. Good food and fabulous views across the beach. Plus the happiest waitresses of the holiday making you feel glad to be eating at their restaurant.

This is a wonderful bar on an elevated position on the promenade. We've stopped for drinks a few times but recently we had lunch twice at El Pincho. The food is very good and the staff are wonderful. Very reasonable prices for tapas.
