Have eaten here on previous holidays and twice this time. Really friendly service and good food. The tomato soup is fab! The fish and steak dishes are always good. There is seating in and outside with a good ambiance!

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.
