“Brill Restaurant and Lovely Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012

Visited here 6/07/12 having the garlic prawns to start, with bread and ailio, then having sirloin steak and green pepper sauce! Bill came to 46.55, including two rounds of drinks for two people! Could have sat there all night just to people watch along the beach/harbour in Los Cristianos.

“Wonderful Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2012

We have visited this restaurant in Los Cristianos MANY times over the last 15 years - and can honestly say their excellent food & friendly service never alters. Very child-friendly too! You won't be disappointed. Charming inside with beautifully laid tables & a lovely painting on a wall of Los Christianos years ago. Plenty of seating outside & just the spot to 'people watch' whilst enjoying a jug of their wonderful Sangria! Really the best we've ever had! Our top favourite foods there include paella, grilled steak with onions and their onion soup with cheese & croutons! The vegetables with the meals are always freshly cooked and their Canarian potatoes -with mojo sauce are 'to die for'!! Could go on and on - but just try them when next out - & they will definitely become a favourite restaurant of yours too!

“A little gem of a restaurant.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2012

Spent a lovely week in Tenerife last week and whilst there went into Los Cristianos and did the usual walk along the paseo. Lots of restaurants to choose from but my friend Annie and I decided to give Fados a try for our lunch one day. We only had the omelettes but they were so good and the service was excellent that we decided to eat the meal of the day on our next visit.

For €8.25 we had a 3 course meal consisting of salad starters, I had the calamari rings and Annie had the tuna, followed by creme caramel for me and fruit salad for her. Everything was cooked to perfection and the staff were attentive but not overly so. We only had soft drinks but someone at another table was drinking the sangria which looked really good too.

Fados is a restaurant that doesn't shout out at you and they don't stand outside "brow beating" people to come in as some other restaurants in Los Cristianos do. They treat all their customers as important not just the ones who spend lots of money. We will certainly visit them again when we go back to Tenerife in the future.

“Fab Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2012

We always go to this restaurant when we are in Tenerife.
Ex service, friendly and the food is great.
Too many people pass this and carry on into the town. Yes there are loads more restaurants to try but you have to go to Fados. The view is great and you can eat and people watch at the same time.
Went there this month whilst on holiday and as always top class.
We had paella and it was yummy. One of the best I have tried.
Good sangria too, nice and strong.
Go, dont miss out
