“One of my two favourite restaurants in Medano!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2011

I absolutely love this restaurant and always insist that we eat here when ever we are in Medano. The food is fantastic - especially the fish! Everyone is so polite and welcoming, and the wine selection is fab! I also love the fact he still gives the ladies a rose when they leave - makes my boyfriend feel guilty everytime! It is a definate must for at least one night of your holiday!

“If you are staying in El Medano.... go there.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2011

The fact that this restaurant was full when others were not even busy was enough of an indication for us. The food was great as was the service.

“Fantastic food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2011

We ate at this restaurant twice in the week were in El Medano because it was good value, good wine, fantastic food and above all the waiters were very friendly and welcoming. They took the trouble to explain if you wanted to know what was in a certain dish. Very cosy atmosphere.

“one of the best in the canaries”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2010

I have been going to Avencios restaurants in all his guises for over 40 years - starting as a kid in the original premises up the hill from the taxi rank. His gorgeous paella was my birthday treat for many years, and the rabbit (conejo) is something I look forward to every year. He is now in a lovely premises overlooking the sea and it is small and cosy enough to be intimate without being on top of other tables. Fresh fish is his forte but steaks and rabbit are very good too.

“Fantastic Food, great wine and not too expensive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2010

We have been eating at this restaurant for some 10 years, we go back to it every year at least once, usually twice on our one week jolly boys outing to Tenerife (jolly boys average age is 48 and we go to El Medano every year to windsurf!). It is primarily a seafood restaurant serving great juicy fish - a delicious fish soup, think very wet paella and of course a fabulous paella. Nearly all of the restaurants in El Medano are good, way above your usual tourist tat no burger bars to be seen here so the competition is stiff and Astlillero never dissapoints
Its not just seafood, it does a range of meat and local dishes which are all great
