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

We had been told this restaurant was more 'British' than many in Golf, but decided to try it for a change. Usually when abroad we like to try local cuisine, but we were prepared for a more 'British' menu, which we got. However we weren't prepared for the 'get 'em in, feed 'em quick, get 'em out' attitude that we... More

We heard that Big Als had changed hands when we went in January so we decided to give the new owners a try. The four of us were greeted by men which felt strange, as for the past three years we were used to women greeting and serving us,but apart from that nothing had really changed at all . We... More
