If all you need is some average food thrown down your throat, like the orcas at the island Loro Parque, then this will just about do. The portions are big so whatever dish you order can easily be shared. They had a 'crooner' singing to the meals but I think the management's money would have a better return if they... More

The "Slow Boat" in Puerto Colon has an extensive and varied menu. Some of the starters are of main course proportions so if you order a banquet you need to be really hungry. Aromatic duck and the squid dish are exceptional. They offer a bottle of house wine for free of if you like to drink a well known wine... More

We visited this restaurant last year and it was excellent. This year we went twice it was just as good, maybe better. The sushi was excellent and the Chilli Chicken delicious. The Special Chow Mein was really enjoyed by the children. Must finish off by saying how polite, welcoming and friendly the staff were. A big thanks for your excellent... More

Nice experience at this chinese. Good value for money. Really good choice of food as they offer dim sum, thai and sushi. Interesting mix. Resulted in us having dim sum as starters with chinese as the main. We would certainly return.

Food and service is absolutely excellent. Would highly recommend a visit. We had the meal for 4 and there was more than enough to go round. We struggled to eat it all.

The meal was flavourless and the texture appalling. The chrispy sweet chilli chicken was neither sweet, chrispy nor had a whisper of heat about it. The sauce had a faint taste of ginger and that was it. We will not be back. The entertainer had a good voice but the sound was too loud and intrusive.

My wife and I visited the Slow Boat recently and have to say it was tasty but very average.The portions were not particularly large and we thought it somewhat expensive for what you actually got.The staff were friendly but don't think we would eat there again if we return to Tenerife.
