We ate here 3 times, having the prawn skewers, pork skewers, roast chicken, suckling pig and beef and pork kebab. The first two times we really enjoyed it but we went there on our last night and our table was so dark we couldn't see our food.

The food was tasty and nicely presented but nothing out of the ordinary. Our favourite was probably the prawns on skewers and least favourite was the beef and pork kebab and the pork turned out to be Spanish sausage.

We would probably eat there again for lunch when the light is better and the view of the beach is superb.

We were introduced to Watermelon by our son who was working in Tenerife. We have eaten in so many restaurants in Tenerife but have not found one that even comes close to Watermelon for quality or quantity. The food is absolutely amazing and is always cooked and presented to a very high standard. We have tried many of the dishes and they are all consistently excellent!
The staff are delightful and make you feel really welcome. Nothing is too much trouble.
The view of the beach is lovely and although it does get warm during the day there are tables in the shade. It is not brightly lit at night which gives it a cosy and romantic feel and the background music is brilliant.
We just can't speak highly enough of Watermelon and all the staff.
The cocktails are to die for.

Unfortunately we came when it was raining/windy a little so the terrace looking over the beach was closed, but my friends had been before and assured me it was an amazing view, so we sat out the front next to a patio heater which was lovely! We shared 3 dishes of cheeses, mozzarella & tomato salad and a red pepper/anchovy pizza bread...all the dishes looked and tasted amazing and also they were great value for the size of them...we couldn't finish it all!

Two or three minutes from the old and interesting part of Los Cristianos, just before you turn down to the port and in a lively area of boutiques and bars, the Watermelon has excellent views of the beach and sea, heaters for a cool evening and a very reasonably priced menu. We had beef kebab, which turned out to be two sizeable skewers of tender beef with peppers, aubergines, courgettes, celery and chips, one mojito, one large, very drinkable, glass of red wine and two Americanos for €28. When there was a mix-up over drinks, the waitress was immediately very gracious and made no problem. Would go again.

The darkest restaurant I have ever had the misfortune to eat in, if you have night vision glasses take them with you ,they have a wonderful view of the beach from the restaurant, but because you are looking through glass, any light they could switch on would reflect on the glass and block your veiw, you end up being able to see the beach but not the food on your plate.On the plus side the staff were great and the cocktails looked incredible,.
