Visited this restaurant again in November for the tapas del dia as had been pleased before. While the food was good the service was appalling. It was difficult to get served though there were few people dining. The order remained on the bar counter for quite some time before the waiter deigned to bring it down. And when we paid,... More

The Watermelon has a nice atmosphere but unfortunately did not deliver on food quality. I had a entrecôte stake which was fatty and not very good at around 18 euros. I complained about it but was completely ignored. It can also be noisy as there is not much room in the dining area. We felt you can get better value... More

Visited here with my wife and had a great night. Restaurant is very cosy and good feeling about it. No pressure on table turnover and good was great.

We are in Tenerife 3 times a year and always make time to have a pit stop in the Water Melon. The Long Island Iced Teas always hit the spot but beware they are strong and two in the afternoon can lead to an extended siesta. Great views over the beach, tasty food and friendly helpful service what more can... More

This was our 'last night of holiday' special meal. My husband wanted steak and we had walked past and seen the raw steaks on display in a display fridge (don't take a vegetarian with you). The service was impeccable and the food excellent. We shared a mozeralla orange and artichoke salad and garlic bread to start. Perfect balance of flavours.... More

My wife and I have been visiting Watermelon for the last 6 years! It's a great restaurant, chilled atmosphere, attentive staff, stunning sunset sea views, fantastic food and by far the best cocktails (especially the Mojito) on the island. Watermelon is our favourite restaurant in Tenerife by a long way!
