“60th birthday meal and service was terrible!”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

I was expecting this to be a special night at this restaurant.....oh how wrong I was. The main waiter was astounding as he could be laughing, showing a Simon Cowell smile to a fooled customer at the same time as waving-in unsuspecting punters from the walkway at the front of the restaurant.
The food was poor and the wine I ordered was more akin to Algerian Bellywash than house wine.
The star prize however has to go to the waitress that did a superb impersonation of Maggie Smith. She could not raise a smile and her body language gave the impression that she was doing you a favour rather than the other way round.
I was furious that my wife and I were treated in such a shabby fashion. My only thought as I left was that the name of the restaurant had been spelled incorrectly.....should it have been RobbinSons?

“Fantastic service - no way Jose!! Food almost as bad.”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

Perhaps there is another Robinsons on this stretch of beach, but if there is we did not find it. Service was poor at best, no friendliness, not even a smile. We forgave that the first time we ate here as the food was good for lunch, but when we tried dinner, my grilled fish special was certainly special - especially awful. When my 1/3rd eaten meal was taken away, the waiter said "no good"? I replied rubbish. Worst meal i have had in Tenerife. He shrugged. Did not care. Probably should have refused to pay for it. They were surprised and unhappy when we left no tip.

“Fantastic location,oh and great food”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

Robinsons is a typical sea front restaurant with really good food and excellent service. Whether you want just a drink, a light snack or a full meal you are always welcomed. The choice of meal is excellent with something for everyone, fish,meats,pastas etc. If your close by well worth a small detour and then sit back and klet the world go past as you relax. Perfect!!
