Pretty small and humble little restaurant and the real jewel in this sleepy little town however the food (we opted for the medium tasting menu €40 p/p) was absolutely phenomonal. It is a small place but the chef is very highly regarded, somewhat famous, not only in Tenerife but across all of Spain... read more

I went here with my wife and had the tasting menu. I don't think the chefs have the skills to create a tasting menu. There was nothing wrong with the food except that it was fairly ordinary and everything lacked a real depth of flavour that you expect from real fine dining. I'm not a chef but I can get... More

I have been traveling and eating in good places and I must say the creativity of Juan Carlos is outstanding. I highly recommend you take the big menu so you get a real taste of his creativity and talent in the kitchen. It was so intense explotion of flavors!!!!I just would like to ask them to use animals who have... More

a dining experience to be remembered. this chef is quite famous in spain. to eat al fresco is really pretty but is only for warm evenings, the dining room itself is a little bare, but, the food makes up for it!

We visited this restaurant last week. My brother, whom is a great foodie has eaten in many Michelin star restaurants had heard about it and wanted to take myself and 4 other family members. The taster menu was a totally new experience for me and one I will not forget! We ate eel, pigeon, and many other wonderful delights, packed... More

El Rincon is so popular we booked for 2 nights online before travelling to Tenerife. Just as well as it was full both nights. The food is still superb and wonderfully presented. The starter of parmesan ravioli in a lentil broth was my favourite this year, melt in the mouth pasta parcels - delicious. As many have noted it is... More

A last meal in Los gigantes and by far the best. Original, inventive dishes presented with real flair in a quiet low key environment . Superb!

This restaurant came highly recommended by friends so we were very keen to try the tasting menu. The chef is a top chef in Spain and the front of house staff extremely helpful and knowledgeable. We tried the short taster menu which was 40 euros without wine and 60 euros including wines. The selection of wines was outstanding and one... More

FOOD: A must eat for gourmands! The best lamb EVER in my life (and being Norwegian I've had a lot..). SERVICE: Professional, welcoming and warm service PRICE: Upper for being in Tenerife but well worth it. RESTAURANT: The only reason I don't give top, I didn't think the premesis was in style with the quality of the food and service.... More

This restaurant is for that 'special' meal. The food is very much of the minimalistic size however it is cooked and presented excellently. If you want something a bit special while staying at Los Gigantes then this is for you. You wont be disappointed. You must book however because it is often full. If you miss out try CKs Bistro...
