An evening full of flavors accompanied of our house wine from La Rioja. We invite you to stop by our restaurant, located in the quiet area Callao Salvaje (Adeje).

Visited El Ancla after reading the reviews from Trip Advisor. Although on our first visit it was empty, we were a bit afraid to try it, but we gave it a go.
Ate there 5-6 times during our 10 day holiday in July 2012 and in April 2013. The garlic prawns are the best we've had, the soups very good and the fish of the day (which was grilled sea bass) was great (and i'm not a fish person).
The portions are quite generous (once ordered some kind of grilled chicken - we got almost half a chicken) and they do not use frozen ingredients. The prices are a bit above the average but it is worth it.
It also has a nice view from the terrace.

It's in a lovely spot with a great view of the sea, and the food was absolutely delicious, and the owner very nice as well (and she liked the cats that are all around!).

The only thing that stopped us coming back was that it was nearly €100 for 2 of us for three courses and a bottle of wine, and after we tried Santa Lucia with a better menu and averaged €30 less each time, we never wanted to.

I'd recommend it if Santa Lucia is closed (like on a Monday).

This was simply the best meal we have had for as long as i can remember.... It was located on top of the hill just up from the new beach and we sat outside on a gorgeous evening and recieved the best prawns in garlic i have ever had in my life and i have eaten alot of them,,, my fillet steak and roquefort sauce i can not put into words how good this sauce was and the steak was exactly how i asked for it to be cooked.. The staff were so nice and when we complimented the waiter on how our food was cooked the chef came and spoke to us ( A lovely gentleman from france) which was lovely touch. To finish we had the best carrot cake we have ever had and only sorry we did not have room for the crepe that looked amazing... if we ever return to tenerife i will be making sure to eat here again. Gorgeous food.

Food was fresh. Service was friendly. We dined there twice during our two week holiday returning because we enjoyed it the first time. Views from restaurant are of the beach.
