We went to El Pincho for a light lunch and we chose it because of its low prices and the good location, on a terrace right on the seaside promenade along Playa de las Vistas. At first sight the menu will not probably impress you but it offers various tasty tapas, salads, cocktails and other drinks. Besides, the staff are... More

Decided to try El Pincho after reading the good reviews on Trip Advisor, wasn't disappointed so went back again a 2nd time a few days later. Firstly the balcony setting has great views over the beach, perfect to drink a few cold ones & watch the world go by. Secondly, the Tapas was superb & certainly complimented the cool beers.... More

A lovely spot for drinks and to watch the world go by. The staff are all really pleasant, and attentive, though you can overdose on the free nuts. The menu is great too, the big prawns my personal favourite.

AS people who read my reviews know, we live in Los Cristianos. How I have never been to this place before I will never know. Friends recommended it so we thought we would try it for lunch. It was a dull day but the Restaurant was full to capacity and we had to wait to find a table. BUT the... More

What a great place! The staff are so friendly, gave us little free bits of tapas alongside what we ordered! The goats cheese and chorizo tapas was really nice and the house White is a great choice! They love a bit Of Simply Red for music which is fine by me :) please visit here!

It was wonderful to be back at El Pincho. Nuria and her girls and of course Jose are so friendly and always welcome you. The food is delicious and as for the sangria it is a must and what a view you have. Cannot not wait to return hopefully in SeptemberSeptember

Dropped in by chance and didn't regret it. Have never been to such a happy place with such friendly staff. Food great and toilets very clean (just as they should be!) Great views.

Stopped here for some tapas and cocktails of cause. Very friendly waitresses go us a table with no time and brought drinks very quickly too, offered to take our photos and suggested patas which we enjoyed. Their fresh bread though is the highlight, we just couldn't stop eating it. Come and try, it's so good!

We popped in for a late breakfast/early lunch. Got complimentary hot bread and sauces which I enjoyed, a tomato bruschetta thing which was also tasty and a little non-alcoholic shot with the bill (not so nice). The food we ordered was so-so but the service was welcoming enough. Slightly irritated by the woman manager (assume she was the manager as... More

We always head to El Pincho when staying in Tenerife, food quality, service overall and general experience you have here is pretty amazing! Other bar owners in Tenerife should take note, nothing is too much bother for the staff, owners are always on hand. The welcome you receive is fantastic from the minute you climb that last step to the... More
