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.

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...More
