Description: Big Al's is a family run restaurant on the Golf Del Sur. Fantastic food, great value for money and warm friendly staff.

You can eat inside or if you prefer you are more than welcome to eat on our outdoor terrace. Hopefully we will see you soon.

However, we were not disappointed and they had a great range of dishes ranging from steaks, Italian,salads, fish dishes and if you want... More

On our return to Tenerife in June we found that Big Als was no longer open,and had closed around March 2014 about a month after our last visit in February. We noticed several times in passing the restaurant that potential customers were looking in through the windows to see if they were closed for trade,so we were not the only... More

New owners moved in in October 2013.and this was a daunting occurrence as Big Al's in almost an institution. No fears! the chef is still there and he has been given the Licence and freedom to maintain his benchmark dishes and add a new concept and variations, Big Al's is now EVEN BETTER! and no sharp price hike. The Sunday... More

However we weren't prepared for the 'get 'em in, feed 'em quick, get 'em out' attitude that we... More
