“Great afternoon tapas place”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

Located just a few steps up from the Playa de las Vistas beach promenade. Excellent choice for afternoon tapas when you get hungry on the beach as well as in the evening.

The selection in the menu is not that wide but the content is great. Good wines, too. Very tasty food and friendly service. Nice view to the sea.

“Fantastic bar & friendly owners”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

This is a great place to enjoy the view with a cold drink & some tapas. The owner & staff are very welcoming and we always head there when down at the beach.

“You'll kick yourself if you miss this one!”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

Lunchtimes became a delightful habit here.... great food, wonderful service where you can have lovely fun banter with the staff. Generous portions, and very good house vino. Marvelous people watching spot too, situated right over the beach promenade. Easily the best Tapas in Tenerife.

“El Pincho experience”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

If you only go to one tapas bar in Tenerife, make sure it's this one. We have visited many times and only returned to England on Friday (March 1st). It has everything that you will need - a sunny terrace setting, very friendly and welcoming staff (who will remember you on your next visit), an excellent and reasonably priced menu (without being too extensive) and a wonderful relaxing atmosphere.
The tapas is very tasty and plentiful, and the local grilled fish is excellent. Finish off your meal with a local Spanish coffee called Barraquito.- they are lovely.

If you catch him on the right day, Carlos (waiter)may perform some magic tricks for you. Make sure that you visit, the staff will treat you like an old friend.
Best wishes to Nuria (the owner), Carlos and the other staff.
