I visited here on my last day of my holiday to Tenerife. I'd eaten here before but quite a few years ago. Food was lovely, service was great. No doubt I will be visiting again on my next trip to Tenerife in March.

We have eaten at the Slow Boat many times over the years and I once described it as my favourite Chinese restaurant anywhere.

If I am honest we have seen a gradual decline in recent years, but not enough to prompt a poor review. No... More

Visited here for the first time, even though I have holiday here for 15 years. Food was excellent, service was great and it was reasonably priced. Salt and pepper ribs were lovely, as to was the crispy chilli beef. Definitely return again. Situated on Puerto Colon it has views of the harbour.
