I wanted to give a good rating for this place, but not very good, so I plumped for the 3* instead. Why? There are many restaurants on this street in Callao Salvaje, but there isn't one where you would say " I have to go back there". The service is very friendly but the food is quite expensive for what... More

This was a return visit to a restaurant that we have used a number of times in recent years and gave them a good review on our previous visit a year ago. This year we were a little disappointed. The food is still very good, we both had the Sea Bream for the main course, mine was filleted and my... More

We went with our family. The menu was quite limited and on the day we went there was no sirloin steak that was a large part of the menu. The only steak was a fillet and I did think that it was expensive. We had a child with us and to be fair they did bring her meal quite quickly... More

We werent disappointed either. We had steak and fish of the day. Both dishes had a local taste, something we always want to get. Main dishes... More

This is quite an expensive restaurant,but most of the reviews were good so we decided to try it. First the friendly service most people claim certainly must have had a day off ! I don't think I've ever been served by a more miserable waiter! We decided just to have the bread and dips which were really good value at... More

I didn't expect to find a restaurant of this high calibre in a small resort so was blown away by the quality and prices on offer. I had a beautiful rare steak for just over €15 including veg. You could almost get fleeced in a fast food joint for not much less! Overlooking the sea with panoramic views, we went... More

El Ancla is the best restaurant in Tenerife. A relaxing, welcoming atmosphere and great views of the beach Ajabo to seduce all of your senses. An evening full of flavors accompanied of our house wine from La Rioja. We invite you to stop by our restaurant, located in the quiet area Callao Salvaje (Adeje).
