Sought this restaurant out after reading reviews here. Not easy to find but well worth it when found. We had the grilled sardines with chicken wings as a side. We did have a problem finishing the fish as there were so many served so be careful! But they were fabulous as were the chicken,very tasty with a lovely crunchy coating.... More

Had grilled octopus and swordfish, all nicly cooked. Tender octopus and perfectly prepared fish. In short: plastic white armchairs not so romantic, but with nice food and reasonable prices.

Took a while to find El Cine as I was using Google maps (in walking mode) to help me, the app told me I was there but I couldn't see it. However look up one of the little alleys and you will see it, it's also next to El Muelle Farmacie. Also, restaurant was quite busy (a good sign) so... More

Simplicity at its tastiest best. Don't miss out on the tomato and onion salad accompanied by your selection of fresh seafood - we got the octopus, definitely not disappointed!

No nonsense restaurant that delivers a most memorable meal. Simple and rustic setting, but the fish is as fresh as fresh can be. We had cuttlefish, octopus, calamari, hake and swordfish, accompanied by salted potatoes. All were phenomenally good. Prices were very reasonable. Definitely a locally popular plaice. Not to be missed. Very busy, so an early dinner might avoid... More

Went with the family to El Cine for dinner based upon reviews and the expectation that it would be an 'authentic' local experience. We weren't disappointed. The ambiance is rustic; sitting in the alley at plastic tables and the menu is simple but the seafood was fresh and tasty. Our group had the octopus, squid, cuttle fish, sardines and tuna... More

Staying at Spring Arona Gran so ate out most nights as food so bad. Not like this restaurant where we ate twice. The food is simple but fresh and delicious. We had tomato and onion salad, chicken wings, hake with Canarian potatoes washed down with bottle of their own wine. Perfect!

Don't like long menus consisting of new fancy names given to the same old things? Don't like confusing wine lists that make you feel like a beginner? Do you like no nonsense at highly competitive prices? Then this is probably the place for you. Yes, they don't offer a view of the ocean, they don't have table cloths or wifi,... More

This is a brilliant find..it was recommended to us otherwise we would never have found it. When I say 'no frills' I really mean it. When we arrived the restaurant was almost empty but it rapidly filled with locals and tourists alike. There is no drinks menu but the white wine was dry, perfectly chilled and super value. Two of...
