“Surfers delivers once again....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

Having eaten in most of the bar/restaurants in Los Cristianos/Las Americas over the last 20 years, this is the only one I keep coming back to. The food is always spot on, always cooked properly and presented nicely. The drinks are some of the cheapest you'll find anywhere in Tenerife. The draught beer is always lovely - unlike the majority of beers I have sampled on Tenerife. Staff are always friendly and helpful, although you do sometimes have to wait a little while if it's a busy spell (tell me somewhere in the world that you DON'T have to wait longer during busier periods???). They're happy to switch things round on the menu, add things, cook things how you like them etc etc etc, all this and it's right on the beach! What's not to love!!! I'll definitely be back again!!

“Truly excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

The moment I arrived, and it was very busy, I was asked what I wanted. The Fish in beer batter was delicious and the sweets were to die for. Lovely friendly service with a smile and I will definitely return. Do not miss out on this gem.

“Lunch Hangout”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

I spend a lot of my holiday time Scuba Diving with Aqua Marina who are in the concourse below Surfers.

We've been twice this year and each time we have a good few of our lunches at Surfers.
It can be busy but we've never experienced bad delays. Drinks orders have been taken within a couple of minutes of sitting down and food orders taken when the drinks arrive.
We noticed it's different staff waiting on this year after seeing the same ones for some time. They were coping well with the lunchtime rush.

It's a great place to sit and watch the world go by and prices are very affordable.

there used to be 3 in a row along that landing. One has become a Italian Bistro type affair which we tried one day. Twice the price and a very, very long wait. We didn't bother there again! And the "Rovers Return" is shut up and for sale.
So the competition has gone and Surfers has spread out a bit. We thought it seemed more relaxed than in previous visits.

“Best of British”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

If you're looking for a warm welcome, English speaking staff, all the Sports channels, good wholesome food, great value for money all while you're looking out over the beach and the sea then there is no better place in Tenerife !! The only trouble is that lots of people have found out about it so it can be busy at peak times but they do take table bookings.
Cooking to order can cause a delay in food service but its worth it when it arrives and the bar service is great so you can have a few drinks at good prices while you wait.
Highly recommended.
