We arrived mid afternoon so only a few other diners were there; we sat out on the spacious terrace. Hot rolls were brought to the table with the traditional red and green dips we have come to expect on Tenerife; delicious. We ordered a salad to start - it was generous and freshly prepared and we made our own dressing... More

The restaurant itself has the basic equipment. So no luxurious interior but; you are the one who choses your fish, everything is weighed and then you get it served, grilled or fried everything you asked for. White wine excellent choice. Staff very friendly. I have seen a constant queue during my entire visit from people who wanted to eat. Unbelievable.... More

It was since ages that friends here told us about going to eat fish in Tajao: I asked one of them for a name but he simply pointed out: all and everyone. Well, Manolo II has been a very good start; we went very early (before 19:00) so it was only the two of us. We went to the glass-bench... More

I love this place, it's my favourite restaurant in Tenerife. Looks simple from the outside, when you enter the first thing you see if the fridge cabinet with a fantastic selection of fresh sea food. You are charged by the weight of the fish you consume. The best thing for me is the mojo sauces which accompany the salad and... More

We regularly go to eat at Manolo II, and our guests are always surprised. The restaurant is simple, almost austere; but you forget everything when you see the fridge full of fishes! When you enter, you choose what to eat and how you want the fish cooked: the price is always the same (€ 16,50/kg). Then you can sit on... More

First of all I would like to say that even average restaurant in Tajao is better than the best in El Medano area. We tried the restaurant after having a dinner in Delicious del Mar which is just neighbour restaurant. So food was average, service even les then average, atmosphere just average. The only thing which was over average was... More

Seafood as seafood should be - fresh and simply cooked. There is no menu. The chilled cabinet at the entrance to the restaurant displays what is available. Pick what you want from the selection of, prawn, shrimp, razor clams, mussels, sea bass, squid, octopus, whitebait and various large and small whole fish. You pay by weight. They also do Paella....

In January 2012 we were travelling by car the island of Tenerife. We found this simple everyday restaurant where you get decent priced, fresh fish & sea food for lunch. The special thing is that prior to get seated you select your fish and sea food at the counter of the cuisine, ordering side dishes there as well. The customers... More
