“You'll kick yourself if you miss this one!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

Lunchtimes became a delightful habit here.... great food, wonderful service where you can have lovely fun banter with the staff. Generous portions, and very good house vino. Marvelous people watching spot too, situated right over the beach promenade. Easily the best Tapas in Tenerife.

“El Pincho experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

If you only go to one tapas bar in Tenerife, make sure it's this one. We have visited many times and only returned to England on Friday (March 1st). It has everything that you will need - a sunny terrace setting, very friendly and welcoming staff (who will remember you on your next visit), an excellent and reasonably priced menu (without being too extensive) and a wonderful relaxing atmosphere.
The tapas is very tasty and plentiful, and the local grilled fish is excellent. Finish off your meal with a local Spanish coffee called Barraquito.- they are lovely.

If you catch him on the right day, Carlos (waiter)may perform some magic tricks for you. Make sure that you visit, the staff will treat you like an old friend.
Best wishes to Nuria (the owner), Carlos and the other staff.

“Excellent Fish Dish”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

Been quite a few times for lunch and evening meal not a big menu but what you do get is very friendly happy staff who look like they enjoy there work, they are always smiling and and cheerful and if you are lucky you will get a magic show from one of the waiters, if you go on a friday night they have the most marvelous singer on called Cloudio, he sings everything from opera, Frank Sinatara and Elvis but you have to stay until the end for a brill performance of a late singer,( can't tell you who he is or it will spoil the fun but you will not be disappointed )he will get you up dancing along with all the staff best night for a long time, now the food, the special has fish of the day which is delicious and the tapas is also excellent all in all a very friendly place with beautiful views which makes everyone go back well done!
