El Sol has been open since before we first came to Los Cristianos over 30 years ago, it was first located down on the sea front cooking for the locals and tourists alike, it was run by Jacques uncle then. Jacques moved the restaurant to it's current location as the old place was a little small.

The starters are varied we sometimes have the El Sol salad to share, it's very good and great value or the Bread which comes with caramelized onions, chicken liver pate, garlic mayo,butter, etc

Remember when ordering if you don't want the bread etc ,tell Jacques no bread thank you or you will get it and be charged.

The main speciality is the Half Roast Chicken which is always cooked to a T, with crispy tasty skin and served with 3 sauces and fries, ask for Spinach as an extra it's beautiful and always gets a smile from Jacques. Although I have never had a Fillet Steak here other have and they are enormous and well cooked served with fries etc.

Deserts here are very good and I can recommend the Lemon Meringue to share, again this will keep Jacques smiling and you might get a free drink as well.

The wines are a Euro or so more than you might pay elsewhere, bottled beer,water etc are the usual price.

Overall this is a Very Good restaurant with a great track record, quality service and fantastic food.

Enjoy it.

We always visit El Sol when in Tenerife. Have done for the last 5 years. We always have the bread and dips followed by the half roast chicken with 3 sauces, french fries and the spinach with cheese. It never disappoints. Cant wait to visit again next time.

Beware when visiting this Restaurant, the French owner is very dictatorial with little humour. Although their speciality, chicken, is excellent, service is slow, although you are given multi lingual menus, they are then removed and you are told what is available. Although you may only order the chicken, you are then presented with freshly baked bread, copious amounts of spinach and petit fours, all of which you did not order and which comes at a considerable additional cost. Likewise they will try and sell you wine which is different to that which you ordered. The owner will then parent you with home baked deserts which again do not come cheaply.

My wife and I are regular visitors to this restaurant and we have always enjoyed the food. Our latest visit last week, proved no exception as we had a lovely meal. We have got to know Jacques the owner very well over the years and he is a great character. sometimes his dry sense of humour is misconstrued and it may appear he comes across a bit abrupt. However, we have always found him very friendly and his food is second to none. I would strongly recommend that you give this restaurant a try and you will not be disappointed.
