This place fully deserves its recent Michelin star. It's been a long time coming and we hope that this well kept secret won't spoil a class act. My wife ate a la crate and I had the 5 course set meal with wine flight. The cooking was top notch and great value compared with one star Michelins in Northern Europe.... More

We had been recommended to visit this restaurant whilst staying in Los Gigantes and our visit didn't disappoint. There were 10 or so courses on the menu, with wine pairings and a couple of appetisers to start. Every course was a feast for the eyes as well as the taste. I would certainly book again, when I next go back... More

Right then. First of all you need to book at least 3 weeks in advance to get a table, even then you may not get the time you want. As this is a Michelin starred restaraunt the size of dishes is not as important as the quality, taste and service, all of which are excellent. We went for the short... More

This restaurant is absolutely fantastic. The food was perfect, the waiting staff were knowledgable, friendly and attentive, and the atmosphere was relaxed and welcoming. I can't praise this place highly enough. (Please read the negative reviews - they are hilarious).

We have dined at the El Rincon on numerous occasions and have never had anything less than faultless service and food. Their Michelin Star is thoroughly deserved. Bookings (essential) are confirmed by phone, there is always a friendly, welcoming greeting (they remember and appreciate repeat customers), the menu choices are fully explained and you get several extras in addition to...

We have been visiting this gem of a restaurant for a number of years now and were thrilled to learn for them that they had been awarded a Michelin Star. I say thrilled for them, as it will inevitably lead to more people wanting to go there and it being harder for the regulars to get in. This was our... More

Booked El Rincon de Jan Carlos for New Years Eve and we were not disappointed. We had visited the restaurant over the years on many occasions and knew that the food was fabulous and we were not disappointed. 14 courses of sublime food that was Michelin star worthy. The most fantastic tasting courses that did not leave you stuffed. The... More
