We have been here twice in one week. Typical Spanish setting, rustic atmosphere, friendly staff, semi-open kitchen, large barbecue. Specialised in meat and fish, good selection of wines several Canarian ones. Good value for money.

Welcomed by polite staff, shown to table - plenty of space between tables. Menu on a portable blackboard so no covid contact from a printed one. Super food - Gourmet Burger for my friend and my Secreto Iberico was very tasty. The home-made chips were...perfect, as ever. Very reasonable prices. Looking forward to my next visit to Puerto, to come again to San Diego.More

Small, friendly, and consistently good quality of food. each time we are around, we visited this restaurant. They take reservation because it is small and very popular, however staff will find a way to accommodate you as soon as you arrive. It is a good...for celebrations, for dates, for business and just for having a pleasant moment with a good meal. We tried several dishes including fresh fish, pork sirloin and beef sirloin. The dessert are excellent. It is hard to pick one. Our only complaint is that their service can be slow due to lack of staffing, but not because lack of care. I will encourage owner to increase salary for waitress. In Spain they do not receive tips as in USA . They should get extra payment when they do their job as they do.More

Called in on last night of our holiday, staying in a nearby apartment - and this place was recommended by the apartment owner. Rightly so. My wife had octopus, which was a huge portion, with a great sauce, and I had a pork steak which...filled the plate, glad I did not meet the pig first, must have been huge. Nice bottle of white wine and perfect end to our holidayMore

We regularly visit San Diego but this is the first time with a hard to please golf society.We celebrated one of our competition events on Saturday 8 Feb, 21 golfers and friends arrived at 7.00pm for pre dinner drinks. The restaurant was full, warm, loads...of atmosphere & inviting. The staff were excellent handling a demanding band of hungry & thirsty revelers, bread & dips followed by an assortment of 4 tapas dishes, main course, dessert, coffee & lots of house wine (excellent at the price) The service was faultless & not a complaint heard.....unusual for this lot!!!! We were given a semi private area behind a glass partition....within the restaurant & the atmosphere but private enough for speeches & presentations without disturbing other clients....perfect. Sadly not many Tenerife restaurants cope this well with large groups. I have been here in groups of 4, 6, 8 & 21 always made welcome with excellent service & food.More

We visited the San Diego Grill as two families with children around 11-16 and all were so pleased with the food, each meal was perfectly cooked from the chicken and steaks that we were all absolutely stuffed, you can still make room for their superb...desserts which we all had in aundance. When the bill arrived we booked for the following night too. Very well priced with a large selection of meats which they cook very well. Do yourself a favour and book yourself a table, you won't regret it.More

I recently had the pleasure of hosting two separate parties of ten at the San Diego, both occasions were excellent with everyone enjoying the meals taken. We took meat, fish and Vegetarian options and every dish was presented well and in good time. The staff...are first class, extremely efficient and polite. The restaurant sits looking out to sea in the El Rinçon area a five minute drive from Puerto de la Cruz. I would highly recommend this restaurant and advise booking ahead to ensure you get a table!More
