Every time we go to Los Gigantes we visit this restaurant, even though we stay in Los Gigantes Hotel half board. This time my husband and I had our daughter with us. We all loved our meals I especially like the Canarian black pudding - this is to die for! My husband had lamb and my daughter had steak -... More

Previously booked and quickly shown to our table. Only one fish dish and vegetarian main dishes available which was disappointing. Starters only had 2 fish dishes. Extensive wine list - chose red wine and sparkling cava. The cava was too warm and kept bringing wine back to try which was not given long enough to chill. Choice if different rolls... More

Hubby and I had the short menu last night and the whole experience was superb. We like to think of ourselves as 'foodies' and there is just nothing to compare in Los Gigantes. Service was efficient yet discreet; the food was wonderful as was the wine we had with it - recommended to us. A lovely atmosphere where we knew... More

We visited here a number of years ago and can report that it remains a class above all other restaurants in Los Gigantes so expect to pay more. By chance, we chose the least expensive ( 3 course) menu, including a very good canarian red wine, which came to around 104 euros for the two of us. Excellent canarian black... More

Had three fantastic meals here during our recent trip to Los Gigantes, as usual the food and service were superb. By far the best restaurant in the resort.

We dined here on Monday night and wished we had found this little gem earlier in our holiday, what a wonderful experience. This establishment may not be the trendiest of places however if you love and appreciate food that has been prepared with thought and care you will love it and you will not need to take out a bank...

What a meal you have here, it is literally a dining experience, we booked and I happen to mention that it was my husband's birthday and surprise when his dessert came out it had a candle on there and the waitress wished him Happy Birthday!! The food here is out of this world, I can highly recommend the Canarian Black... More

We visited at the end of March to celebrate my husbands birthday. For us, the tasting menu was as good as some we have eaten in michelin star restaurants worldwide and with the bill coming to less than 200 gbp including wine, very competitively priced. Book your table you will not be disappointed. We will return.

Having eaten at El Rincon de Juan Carlos every year since they opened we were not expecting the quality to have changed and it lived up to our expectations entirely. The restaurant is very popular now and although we dropped in to book a table on our second night in Los Gigantes they were fully booked for the rest of... More

Just returned to this restaurant for the second time. The food this time was a little bland. Especially the fish course. We decided to eat here because last November we had a great experience. We ate outside. The atmosphere was great! big basket chairs and candle light, very romantic. I knew this time we would have to eat inside. The... More
