Found the service friendly and the cocktails great. Tapas was not up to expectations. Tapas much better at varadero which is about five doors down

Whilst recently inTenerife with the girls, we went to this most amazing cafe bar on the front of Los Cristianos beach.

I believe the restaurant is now closed for a 2- month refurbishment whilst the lady proprietor goes off to the Basque country for her holidays. When it re-opens,... More

This bar is on the main front of the beach and is great. All the staff are fantastic and the food is to die for. Prices are most reasonable and booking is advisable for dinner. It is closed on Sundays.
