The food is excellently prepared with obvious passion and attention to detail. The service is friendly and unhurried and the location is perfect for a quiet evening meal. We were given some appetisers of a nest of crisp noodles with truffle oil and quails egg followed by mint and melon soup. For a starter I had black pork dumplings with... More

The restaurant is set in a little square in Los Gigantes that has a Parisian feel to it. It all adds the lovely experience of eating here. Service is impeccable & food is delicious. Saved it until our last night of our holiday, but wish we hadn't as would have eaten here again.........& again!!

This restaurant was recommended by others and advised it was more expensive than most but well worth it. We booked a table as it was always full. The service was superb and food exquisite, the flavours were out of this world. We felt really special and the whole experience was well worth the cost. We've talked of little else since... More

Everything from eel with frozen rasperries to the rabbit stuffed with black pork (to name but a few) went down a storm.This award winning chef and... More

El Rincon remains the best restaurant in Los Gigantes, indeed in the local area. We had 2 fabulous meals there last week. Can't wait to go back again. Outstanding!

If you want a treat on holiday then this is the restaurant for you... Situated in the centre of los gigantes in a pretty little square .. Food always so beautifully presented and cooked with great skill and attention to detail... We eat here at least twice each holiday ... Steak delicious... Little petit fours always so good......

An excellent retaurant with a very good selection on the menu. It is a little more expensive than some other places but the quality of the food and service is worth it. Portions are well presented and the waitresses were lovely and helpfull. An excellent choice of restaurant for a special occasion.

We opted for Juan Carlos as our final restaurant on our holiday, having done ten or so other restaurants for dinner on previous nights. High expectations were being served by us and we certainly weren't disappointed. The restaurant is set back off the street in a lovely picturesque tiny square almost on it's own. The setting is wonderful. The restaurant... More
