We visited this restaurant as your reviews on here were excellent. We had Canarian potatoes and octopus for starters. The potatoes were dry and the octopus left my partner throwing up. The main courses were fried half chicken which was that dry my partner couldn't...More

This is a really good place if you are looking for fresh fish! The service is perfect and the Cherne (local fish) was amazing!!

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

This is a lovely place with a charming interior. Lots of marine odds & bobs add to the charm. I had the steamed mussels with bread and wasn't disappointed with the huge portion. My husband had fish which he rated top notch. I finished with...More

Hi, me and my friend are coming to El Medano for a christmas break and have never visited El Medano before. I usually hire a car but want to stay local and would like to find a restaurant recommended for christmas Eve (or Christmas day, as I understand the 24th is the main celebratory day in Spain. Can you advise if this restaurant is available to book or, if not, where else is suitable? We are all inc but as much as we are just looking to relax locally, i dont want to spend all my time in the hotel and would like to join in with the locals celebrations. Thanks
