This is a place that is, especially compared to other restaurants around the island, barely average - at most. Food was just good enough to eat it and leave, nothing more. It wasn't bad, but it was our worst meal during our visit to Tenerife. We were the only people in a rather big restaurant at 20 pm, no wonder... More

This is an outstanding local restaurant with wonderful friendly personal service at a very reasonable price. The fresh fish was a delight. We had the best sea bass we'd ever tasted. The Gambas was delicious and the atmosphere was extremely relaxing. We would highly recommend it.

We have always had very nice seafood at this restaurant, but the last time we visited was not so good.

Me and boyfriend called in for lunch, very hungry and thirsty after a 2 hour walk from the next town, sat down looked at the menus and i was very disappointed to see no vegetarian option, not even simple pasta or pizza for example. All meat and fish. We were then asked rather abruptly to move from the table (and... More

Fish restaurant....I wanted Paella but you need to order 24hrs in advance which is a bit odd. Had a locally fried piece of fish ...it was fine...but I wouldn't race back.

We are sorry for your comments but inform that the Paella is by order because its fresh and take at least 45 minutes to prepare anyway we give you the choise if you don't mind to wait this time. And also let you know that we never do fried fish in our restaurant we only do grilled fresh fish. Thank... More

With a window table right above the harbour looking across the sea to the sunset over Gomera, you could not be even further than the neon and brashness of Los Cristianos mass tourism. The fish is wonderfully fresh,the service very helpful and the ambience relaxed. Go for the specials - especially five types of seafood with the mixed grill -... More

In the peaceful fishing town of Alcala but still within easy reach of West Tenerife���s most popular tourist resorts, you���ll find Escondida, a chilled out lounge bar and restaurant with a young, funky feel. Wide windows offer stunning sea views while deep colourful sofas are the perfect place to relax with a delicious mojito before moving through to the restaurant, with the same views but a more formal setting. The compact but varied menu offers everything from tapas dishes for a real taste of Spanish food through to blackboard specials, made using in season local ingredients. Every dish is beautifully presented and a real treat for holidaying foodies after an authentic experience.
