It may not be situated in the most idyllic spot in town, but this little restaurant is well worth a visit. Small selection of wines but carefully selected by the French proprietor. Food was very tasty, service personable. Would recommend a meal at El Marinero.

A great find close to the old town & harbour. Open Monday to Friday only. Great traditional French cuisine home cooked. Don't let external appearances put you off!

Wonderful relaxed atmosphere and superb food. Just lovely not to be hassled in from the pavement - a real joy to sit, eat and relax. We had the Canarian set lunch which consisted of a huge salad, canarian potatoes (lots), prawns sizzling in garlic oil, a huge plate of whitebait cooked with a light touch, a plate of a mozzarella...

Although we were staying half board we decided on our last night to come here just for the thrill of having our food brought to us. We both had the menu of the day which consisted of salad, bread, prawns in a garlicky sauce, whitebait, Canarian potatoes, soft cheese and either creme caramel or ice cream. There was also a... More

For the third year running since finding this hidden gem of a restaurant we ate their twice in our weeks stay. Nothing changes it is still super value for money and the french onion soup is the best I have ever tasted. Five star dining for three star prices.

We had rice salad, tasty sardines and ice cream along with a very good house white wine. I would recommend this wonderful restuarant, it really is well... More

Unbelievably good restaurant, it was recommended to us by long term customers and they were not wrong. Firstly the quality of the food is second to none, and secondly the price is just so good. We were made to feel welcome from the minute we walked in and it was clear to see that your custom is valued and appreciated.... More
