Will always return when in Tenerife

Have been visiting Slow Boat for a lot of years whilst in Tenerife. The service is always fantastic, the staff are very attentive, the atmosphere is very relaxing and the food is all round incredible. Never had a bad experience here and will be returning in a couple of weeks.

As the title says food was great but let down by the food being delivered to the table in drubs and drabs even though they were part of the same course. Location isn't the greatest next to the roadside.

The set menu is really good value for money. The setting may not be the best, but the food more than makes up for it.

Worth a trip to Tenerife just to eat here, well almost but it is great... Usually have a set meal for two and with free wine is around 35 euros. Seek it out you will not be dissapointed.

we were tended to right away, it was when we ordered water and no alcohol the service went downhill. People coming in after us were being served before us. Very disappointing meal. ....... Definitely will not return.

We received a warm welcome from the waiting staff. The food was very good. The soup in particular was not "gloppy" and the duck was cooked the way I liked it. We had three delicious meals there and the food was consistently good as was the service. I am very difficult to please when it comes to Chinese food.

Very Very tasty and good value for money. next to the marina on the sea front. Good ambiance and excellent service. There is entertainment on a Saturday night and it got packed so would suggest booking for that night but went on a midweek night and there was no need to book. very good well worth a second visit.

Stumbled into this wonderful Buffett style Chinese with fantastic service and a vast range of Chinese Thai and Japanese food. All fresh hot and well presented! Waiters were exceptional. HIGHLY RECOMMEND A VISIT TO THIS RESTAURANT. Thank you for such a pleasant meal.
