We've been to this excellent restaurant several times over the years and it dos not disappoint. This time the food was particularly good and the service, as always, professional and friendly. We paid around £80 plus tip but you would pay at least a third more for this quality in the UK so give yourself a treat, especially as the... More

Tripadvisor reviews meant that this place was a must and we weren't disappointed one bit. We have eaten recently in L'Atelier de Joel Rebuchon in London and I would say this place gives it a run for it's money. Excellent service by two very knowledgeable young ladies. We selected the set 4 course meal with matching wines. The food is... More

Just Carlos is always the highlight meal of my trip to Tenerife and I try to go every time I come to Los Gigantes. The food and service are second to none with prices half of what they would be in the UK

If you want a large plate of steak or veal and fries then don't come here, but having enjoyed the former dishes at other Los Gigantes eateries it was a lovely change to have a modern, innovative menu to chose from. Simple dining room and quiet ambience, the menu has tasting menu options but also a very good fixed price... More

Surprised to find a restaurant of this standard in the small town of Los Gigantes. We had a fabulous meal of black pudding & potato amouse-bouche, ravioli in lentil soup, followed by filet steak with a truffle sauce. Definitely recommend booking a few days in advance as really worth a visit.

This tiny restaurant was recommended by the concierge at our hotel as boasting one of the best chefs in the Canaries - and goodness, she was absolutely right..! From the freshly baked breads, followed by the delicious amuse bouche, to the starters and main courses, each mouthful burst with a different and distinct flavour... an absolute taste revelation!!

This small restaurant tucked away off the main square in Los Gigantes is a delight. The food was excellent the tastes and flavours something to really savour. We chose the tasting menu with wine and I'm glad we did as we were unable to get another table reservation whilst here. If you enjoy delicious food, a real gastronomic experience awaits... More
