This was our fourth visit, and the food and wine were as good as ever. However prices seem to have risen sharply since the same time last year, not entirely because of the changes in exchange rates. But for a special culinary experience, probably unmatched in South Tenerife, this restaurant is hard to beat.

If we awarded a “best cuisine of the trip” prize, Rincon del Arroz would probably have clinched it – again. It never fails to please. It’s a nice space, with an interesting non-touristy menu and great service in that semi-formal style at which the Spaniards can excel. It attracts many locals as customers, as well as a few tourists like... More

The restaurant is not located on turistic street but it is not hard to find. Prebook a table specially on week-ends. Locals go here to eat the dinner. The food is wonderful! Just fantastic! If you want to try real Paella, do it here. We had both yellow and black Paella and both were super delicious. The house wine is... More

On my 7 days holliday this was the best restaurant visit I made. Recommended in the Michelin Guide, we had high expectations. It is hard to find, so take a taxi. Mostly locales were at the restaurant, and the waiter were unfortunately very poor in English. The food was very good, at the prices were fair. Very nice winelist.

I have lived in Tenerife for 10 years and have tried many different restaurants but this has to be the best on the island in my opinion, the food is amazing and the paellas are 1st class (lived many years in the Valencian region so I know what a real paella should be like ;). I love the scallop tempura... More

My first attempt at finding this Restaurant was a nightmare as the map location on TA is incorrect. The owner is aware of the issue and has tried to correct it but to no avail. Please note that the location is on Paseo La Vistas on the seafront between the Sir Anthony Hotel and the beginning of the long Los... More

The owner of the restaurant is also the cook and he prepares every dish in another refined way then in another Spanish restaurant. When we order , we are always amazed what we become on our plate .
