All ways a good meal with genial hosts & a good welcome. Their Belly Pork & Pancakes are to die for particularly the grand marnier ones!

An extremely nice evening meal in the Ivy. A very good mushroom starter followed by a sirloin steak with peppercorn sauce. Steak cooked exactly as ordered and the icing on the cake in this restaurant is proper home made chips! Great decision to change from the normal frozen chips you get everywhere else. Will definitely be returning on my next... More

I was going to book for an evening meal, however while looking at the menu outside, we where approached by a member of staff, possibly the owner. Who after finding we where both vegetarian, said. "We can do the roast dinner without the meat with vegetarian gravy". I'm sorry but us veggies are sick of this attitude where we have... More

I had the slow roast belly pork which was superb,and more than lived up to my expectations,having read about it on TripAdvisor.Very generous portions of everything,so make sure you're really hungry when you visit.My husband had the fish and chips,which was also excellent. Really enjoyable visit.Well done all concerned.Note that they are closed on a Sunday.

We always visit this Restaurant every time we come to Los Cristianos, Dave and his staff are brilliant and always make us welcome, food and service are first class, the Whiskey Bread and Butter pudding is to die for.

This restaurant was recommended to us and what a great find! The owner and staff were most welcoming and couldn't do enough for us. They took the time to come and talk to us which was a really nice touch. The theme is British comfort food and all of it is homemade. The chicken and beef pie are out of... More

Off the beaten tracks of Los Cristianos amongst the narrow backstreets by the sea front this gem offers an amazing food experience. It never disappoints with homely good cooking. Particularly recommend the Pork Belly. Absolutely superb!

Returned again for about the 10th time in the last 7 or 8 years and again top notch. Change of staff in the kitchen but still great food. Have got no hesitation in recommending this establishment as I have in the past. Amongst the best for good fresh, well prepared, and tasty food.

Ate here early evening, made to feel very welcome like dining with friends. Everything is homemade and presented beautifully, we shared a garlic bread with cheese then had sirloin steaks which were served with grilled fresh tomato, mushrooms, home-made onion rings and 'the best chips in Tenerife' (according to my husband). I then indulged in a sherry trifle. Not a... More
