Unless someone tells you about El Cine and how to find it, you will never come across it and then you would miss out on one of the best places to eat fresh fish in Los Cristianos. The secret is to go to the harbour wall at the side of the beach, look back at the beach front, spot the... More

Basic but food is cheap and really good - fresh fish, straight off the boat cooked simply. Worth queuing as turnaround is quick but food is fabulous

Short menu, excellent seafood, simply cooked and served, no airs and graces but very popular with both locals and visitors. Excellent food and very reasonable. Strongly recommended.

If you do not get to this tucked away restaurant before 7pm for dinner you will almost certainly have to stand in a queue. We were just seated when our order was taken and our drinks served. We made a big mistake of ordering two starters of Tomato salad. One between us would have been ample. 3 Euros each! Then... More

This is the 2nd time we have been to this restaurant and one of the places we were looking forward to going to following our previous visit to Los Cristianos. Fair to say it didn't disappoint. It's a little tucked away and we had to queue to get in, but the fish was fresh and so tasty so it was... More

Very basic inside looks like a 60's working mens café, but don't be put off. Only a small all fish menu but the food was perfectly cooked and good sized portions. Very friendly staff and reasonably priced.

We were taken here for lunch by friends who had been before. We had a mixed fish platter, prawns, hake, sardine type fishes, octopus, chicken wings, Canarian potatoes and 2 bottles of the house white wine (which was delicious). The decor was cafe style, food restaurant quality. We had to queue to get in, and there were locals there as... More

Went twice on a recent visit to Los Cristianos and found the fish served up to be excellent. Service friendly and there are often queues, we went about 6 pm and got a table straight away.If it's not fresh it's not on the menu. The chips, canary potatoes and tomato slices perfectly compliment the meal and above all a very... More

this restaurant was recommended to us by locals. A tiny little place that could be easily missed. On our fist attempt there was a mega que of people waiting to be seated. A very good sign. On our next attempt we were seated straight away and observed tables did not stay empty for less than a minute. Quick service, reasonably... More

A pleasant busy little restaurant for lunch. Good food with nice efficient waiters. The seafood is excellent as are the chicken drumsticks. This time around we had Hake, prawns and chicken drumsticks with chips. Very very nice.
