We go every time we visit, usually twice in a week! The staff are lovely, always remember us & will accommodate whatever you want. The fresh fish is amongst the best we have eaten anywhere in the world and the prices are so reasonable.

This place should be avoided. My wife ordered avocado salad and received a normal salad with the explanation that the avocados were to soft to serve and the waiter left before she could order an alternative. (They still tried to charge us for avocado salad at the end). I had octopus; thankfully a small portion was served as it was... More

We visited this restaurant as your reviews on here were excellent. We had Canarian potatoes and octopus for starters. The potatoes were dry and the octopus left my partner throwing up. The main courses were fried half chicken which was that dry my partner couldn't eat it. I had a fillet steak but was under seasoned and bland. Such an... More

This restaurant offers by far the best fish and sea food we have tried during out stay in Tenerife. I do not understand how is it possible that it is not higher on the list in Trip advisor. The chief and waiters are local and they do understand their job. We ate there twice and both times we were very... More

My wife & I decided to look for a traditional Seafood Paella as this was our first time in Tenerife. My wife had the Garlic Mushrooms and I had the Avacado & prawn for starters & the Seafood Paella for 2 (26 Euro for the Paella). Paella was enough for 3 and was fantastic. I took 25 mins to cook...

I sat at my table looking out of little the wooden windows over the harbour as the last light of the day settle into the night. I watched the waiters lay tables with care and trouble. Onto perfect table cloths were carefully placed polished glasses and cutlery. Then the candle and finally a small posy of roses. I watched as... More

Visited this restaurant for a meal for two. Bread and garlic butter before our mains. I had seabass and grapes and wasn’t sure of the combination until i tried it and it was amazing. Seabass cooked to perfection with a rich sauce and grapes. My girlfriend has ‘steak on a stick’ i think it was, she was happy enough with... More

This is a really good place if you are looking for fresh fish! The service is perfect and the Cherne (local fish) was amazing!!

Very nice paella (must pre-order), served by friendly staff, who recommended a nice wine. We made the mistake of ordering generous starters, which were very nice, but not really necessary due to the size of the paella.

We have enjoyed Avencio's restaurants from the early days in his back street "cave", his ill-advised move to the premises over SuperDino, and in recent years his seafront location on the pedestrian paseo. Throughout, the welcome and menu have remained authentically Canarian. Sadly his present location is on a paseo that attracts vagrants, pseudo "musicians" and dog owning dopeheads, many... More
