During a week in El Medano we used this establishment for a tapas lunch three times and always found it ideal. The staff were friendly and helpful and access (I am disabled) was easy.

Straightforward decent quality backed up with good service from nice people. We think this is probably the least precocious of all the seafront cafes in El Medano, and we have yet to find a better one. First class place to enjoy the views

Went there for lunch. Only 2 meals arrived out of 4 ordered. Had to reorder another 2 meals then had no Salmon when reordered. Waited about 30 mins for food. Staff was rude, food was rubbish. Then was overcharged when the bill came. Will never go back again.

This is the worst place I have ever eaten in Tenerife. They got the order wrong and when we questioned them the Italian waitress launched into a rage and was shouting at us. The food was mediocre and then they overcharged us. The rudest staff I have ever come across in my life!!!!! Avoid at all costs!!!!

In this small restaurant bar very good food and drinks are served. It's also on the beach of Elizabeth Medano.

Stopped here for a coffee during a walk along the seafront. A nice chilled out place with lovely views of the ocean.

AMAZING tapas. Best one in Tenerife (out of the ones we tried and we tried a lot;)). Sat by the open window looking over the sea. Excellent red wine as well and outstanding service. Can highly recommend.

We Visited in February and ended up coming back twice more (you were closed once though :( ) Fantastic food. The Baby octopus was so tasty, as were the Croquettes. Best Tapas in el Medano by far, the other place does not compare!! The lady serving was very helpful and attentive also. Looking forward to coming back next week
