On my 7 days holliday this was the best restaurant visit I made. Recommended in the Michelin Guide, we had high expectations. It is hard to find, so take a taxi. Mostly locales were at the restaurant, and the waiter were unfortunately very poor in English. The food was very good, at the prices were fair. Very nice winelist.

Thank Jensenkk

I have lived in Tenerife for 10 years and have tried many different restaurants but this has to be the best on the island in my opinion, the food is amazing and the paellas are 1st class (lived many years in the Valencian region so I know what a real paella should be like ;). I love the scallop tempura... More

My first attempt at finding this Restaurant was a nightmare as the map location on TA is incorrect. The owner is aware of the issue and has tried to correct it but to no avail. Please note that the location is on Paseo La Vistas on the seafront between the Sir Anthony Hotel and the beginning of the long Los... More

I've eaten here quite a few times and had some of the best meals however we normally always eat in the daytime when there is a good local trade and on this occasion we went in the evening when it was full of tourists i can't believe i am saying this but we experienced the same rudeness from the staff...

The owner of the restaurant is also the cook and he prepares every dish in another refined way then in another Spanish restaurant. When we order , we are always amazed what we become on our plate . Just... More

This was our second visit, and much more successful than the first - but only because we were a party of four this time, all with adventurous tastes in food. (On the first occasion we took an elderly relative, whose tastes ran only to plain British food - a mistake!). We booked a couple of days beforehand, and perhaps as... More

Without doubt in our minds, this is the best restaurant in the PDLA/Los Cristianos area. There’s an imaginative menu, top class ingredients and a kitchen that knows how to cook and present a dish in a modern style. But, it can also take those top class ingredients and present them seemingly simply. As in a bowl of clams, served with... More

Paella, salmon tartar and delicious white wine! It is considered expensive but the quality of food and obviously the wine is more than worthy to try.

The best Mediterranean specialties, paellas, wet rices, rossejats (fines noodles), fideua, fresh seafood and fish, succulent meats a great wine list. The Rincon Del Arroz is a charming air conditioned restaurant with relaxed rustic charm that seats up to 45 diners. The weekly lunch time ambiance is more inclined to business, the evenings however are more intimate and the ideal place for a relaxed dinner.
