“The best staff and lovely food”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

Myself and my boyfriend visited the restaurant 3 times within our 10 day holiday. We were approached by the PA girl (I think her name may have been Elena) who was absolutely lovely and keen to provide us information about the menu without being pushy, we said no on our first night and then on our 2nd she recognised us and just said hello - this made us want to go in and we were glad we did.

The 2 german fellas there were a great laugh and served wonderful food and drinks (tuna steak was fantastic).

I'm not saying it's the best food I've ever had but was definitely good enough to go back for - especially as there isn't many to chose from in the area near the hotel where we were staying.

“Okay but wouldn't go back.”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

Guy on the street asked us in every single night so thought we'd give it a shot. Pretty disappointed, food was average and took a long time to get served. Server was nice but a bit over-friendly with my younger sister. Cocktails and desserts were great though!

“Absolutely lovely owners and great quality food with attention to detail!”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

After reading great reviews of this restaurant on Trip Advisor before we left for holiday, this restaurant was top of the list as one to visit. After regretfully spending money in poor quality restaurants close to our apartments (aguamarina), we ended up eating at Volcanic Islands 3 times on our 7 night holiday, and were very happy every time!

The restaurant is run by a German family with a lovely British addition to the team, and they are each knowledgeable, funny and enthusiastic about what they do. The waiter has a brilliant personality, knows everything about the food and does a great job at making the guests welcome and making them laugh! On my second visit, after telling him i was half German, he made me struggle with the German menu which was very funny! I already knew however, that i wanted the Schnitzel again as it had such nice flavour and was a challenge to finish! (it was huge!!)

The German meatballs, chicken breast and salmon was also full of flavour. The garnish on all of the meals was presented so well with attention to detail, however this presentation did not compromise the portion size as it usually does in other restaurants where the plate is a sombrero with an infant sized portion. At Volcanic Islands the portion sizes are brilliant! The cocktails and ice cream sundaes also come beautifully displayed with sparklers. Yet more effort that the restaurant puts into food presentation.

The prices are extremely reasonable, every visit we had soft drinks, mains and desert for around 30 euros. They also do a '7th meal free' deal on their loyalty card, and as we were leaving the next morning at 3am, they gave us our free pizza in a takeaway box. Upon getting back to the apartment we opened it up to find a lovely message written inside the box, thanking us for our visits :)

We hope that we go back to Tenerife soon so that we can visit Volcanic Islands again!
The owners made it one of the best memories of our holiday and we would like to thank them for that!
