Situated by the beach and harbour of Los Cristiano, tucked away in a small back street this well worth the experience. Offering locally caught fish this is popular and people do queue at certain times of the year. Well recommended.

This is a great restaurant to sit at, you are right on the beach on one side and the other side is all water and you can see the ships coming in to dock. This a big fish restaurant but you can get more than fish at it, highly recommended and service is good!

We were recommended to visit this restaurant whilst on holiday in Tenerife. We were not disappointed it was full of spNish with platefuls of deli oust seafood. We went for lunch hubby ate sardines & I had huge garlic prawns they were juicy & cooked to perfection! No glitzy restaurant it was above a row of shops but I would... More

We ate here 3 times during our 2 weeks in Las Americas, it is a little hidden gem used by locals and savvy tourists. Great value, simple menu with all fish cooked to perfection and great staff. Get there early or you may have to queue a bit for a table.

This place is an absolute gem - if you can locate it - best secret in los Cristianos - amazing food - great service - just make sure you are there before 12.30 or you will have to queue - but even is you Queue - its so worth it...

We visited El Cine after reading so many good reviews. We have been to quite a few "no frills" seafood restaurants so we knew what to expect. We had octopus and chicken wings(we only got the wings just in case our two kids are not keen on octopus) The food was ok, very limited choices on their menu. I think... More

Most probably you'd pass by this place. And even if you're looking for it, you'll have a hard time trying to find it. Go from the beach side and use a line of people as your guiding star :) (see photos attached). I have no idea, why this restaurant is marked on Tripadvisor as "medium expensive", as it is really...

We were in this restaurant for lunch with a friend during our holiday in Tenerife. We waited 40 minutes before sit because there was a lot of queue outside. After we waited, we ordered octopus, calamaris, sardines, salad and canarian potatoes. All was amazing. The fish was fresh and very good and the surprise was the bill: very cheap.

Always a favourite and it never changes. The most important thing is timing it right so the queue isn't too long. All food was good as usual, chicken, squid, sardines, hake, prawns. Helped down with the salad, canarian potatoes and mojos.

Thank andreaeatsall
