Reviewed June 11, 2013

We have visited the cafe de paris on a number of occasions over the past 15 years, as with their other businesses, el rancho and the monestary, whilst their food has always been ok, if overpriced, the service has always been poor (the norm for tenerife).
On this occasion we stopped off there just for a drink (having eaten elsewhere) about 8pm,
sat down, served quite quickly, finished drinks, then came the hard part, i started off by shouting excuse me when a waiter came within earshot, no joy, the german couple on the next table soon joined in (they wanted another drink), no joy, after about 10 minutes i was just going to walk away,
then suddenly a waiter came towards us, me calling and the german guy with his hand in the air must have done the trick, NO
a new couple had sat down behind us
he took their order, turned round and i just shouted "the bill" to him in spanish,
AT LAST the bill came (roughly 4.40 for 2 bottles of dorada), gave him a 5 euro note and waited for my change, and waited and waited, eventually i got up and asked "where is my change" at which he pointed to the head waiter and said "he said it was ok" then walked off, came back threw a plate down with my change on it and walked off.
When we left(eventually) the german couple were still trying to get served!

Went into this lovely Restaurant several times on our visit to Puerta de la Cruz,1st to 8th june 2013.
It really is a wonderful Restaurant,it has a French theme. The waiters are dressed in really nice uniforms and are very friendly.
It is very good value for money, The food and drinks etc are excellent.
Puerto is a very cheap place ,so the low prices here are great.
They have music every evening ,it was so nice to sit and listen to and see people dance to it,if they wanted to.
Highly reccomend visiting here,the cakes are wonderful too.

We had lunch here when out on a day trip from Los Cristianos. We chose this cafe/restaurant for its attractive looks and location on the promenade. Service was very quick, and the meals were well cooked and tasty. A little expensive.

This is a lovely cafe/bar/restaurant on the promenade. Ideal for coffees and drinks in the day, the cakes are to die for. In the evening there is live music and a small space for dancing, loads of atmosphere. The staff are also very smart and efficient. A great place for people watching.
