We came for food and it was absolutely delicious, the service was impeccable! We was hoping to have a paella but they didn’t have any mussels, but instead of being left disappointed they made us up a paella special, by Jarnier, and it was the...best we have had (I went with my boyfriend who’s family is from Tenerife so they know there stuff!). Santiago looked after us and was extremely attentive and friendly - 5 stars! Venimos a comer paella y mariscos, pero no tenían mariscos. Con lo que tenían disponible (pulpo, pescado y langostinos), nos prepararon una paella especial que fue increíble, que fue preparada por Jarnier. Fui con mi novio y su familia que es de Tenerife (La Orotava). Estamos acordados que es la mejor paella que hemos comido en muchos años. Santiago fue muy atento y amable. ¡Nos lo pasamos pipa!More

Seriously good local food. The local wine selection is small yet quality oriented. Food is genuine, portions are generous and if you sit by the window you get a good view of the ocean. Popular among locals

Great place and friendly staff, no elaborated theme like restaurants in south. Good prices for large portions, a little bit too luxury water. Overall great experience and setting. Will visit again.

We went in the evening, relaxed atmosphere more foreigners than Spanish people. Beautiful views and friendly waiters. The food innovative, we went for the sea food and it was of good quality according to price. The gaspacho de mango and tomato yummy.Wide variety of Spanish...wines and drinks in general. The desserts were delicious! Over all good value for money. We will go again to check out the grill selection which seems to be most popular with foreigners not keen on seafoods.More

We were excited to try this restaurant because it had good reviews and was a 2-minute walk from our accommodation. We were very disappointed and so only ate there once. Compared with even our little neighborhood eateries in Barcelona, the food was mediocre. And the...food (main courses and desserts) was certainly overpriced, The service was okay and a couple of tables near the window (in the upstairs section) had a nice view over the sea. You would do much better to drive 2 miles up to Santa Ursula, where the Indian Curry House and the Chile Verde serve excellent food at very reasonable prices!More

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.

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.

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
