The place has been refurbished but pity they left the old benches and ceiling. Food is good but anything I have had with a sauce is too salty for my taste and compared to what is available in town value is only average. The staff are always friendly and helpful. They have now opened another place in la Paz. Menu... More

Great choice of dishes on the menu. The steaks were a really good size with generous portions of sauce. Recommend the beef stroganoff, very tasty and good portion size. Good service and helpful waitress. Really enjoyed it and would certainly visit again. 😀

With a name like El Padrino, my husband and I were expecting a Canarian restaurant - or at least some local main dishes - or staff - or patrons. But at this place, pretty much everything (apart from the starters) is German. The food itself was ok-ish - my husband enjoyed his garlic prawns starter, though the garlic pieces had... More

One of the best restaurants in Puerto de la Cruz. The bearnaise sauce is very tasteful. The service is helpful and friendly. For sure I will come back.

Plenty to choose from. Generous portions and very attentive service. Good was delicious and all reasonably priced. Not open every evening so double check, although there are loads of great places in the proximity. We ordered garlic prawns for starter (delicious) and then each ordered a fish dish that came with creamy sauce and rice. Quite big portions as they... More

We had dinner here 3 times on our recent visit to Puerto de la Cruz. The restaurant is just off the Plaza de Charco in the centre of town and has become our new favourite place to eat. The staff are so pleasant and attentive to your requirements and the food is excellent. Will definitely return on our next visit... More

This is a great little restaurant located off the main plaza down one of the side streets. A very comprehensive menu with large portions, served very hot and with a friendly smile. Great value for money.
