I was strongly recommended this restaurant by a local and I didn't get disappointed. Starters, main courses were delicious as well as the wine

My parents have known the owner for over 30 years and we had lunch after a long absence. The food was always exceptional and exciting and things have not changed. We would highly recommend El Template for their fresh fish and fine wines. A hard to find place as it's on the first floor in a small commercial centre but... More

After all the fab reviews, not to mention various references in travel books we were keen to give this a try. We made 3 attempts - open lunchtimes only on Sunday, closed Mondays, we were delighted to finally made a reservation for our last night in El Medano and were really looking forward to it. The food was, without doubt,... More

Some friends recommended we ate here, and we were delighted that we did. It has a very warm relaxed feel for diners. The food, all freshly prepared on site, was plentiful, very well presented and beautifully cooked. Empty plates said it all!! The management and staff were very professional and friendly. We hope to be back soon.

We found the restaurant on top of a shopping centre but don't be fooled by the location as this is the best fresh crab I've ever eaten straight out of the tank. My father had steak and said it was amazing as well. The staff are very friendly and the bill was reasonable compared to the restaurants on the seafront.... More

If you want fresh fish and fresh seafood, this is your place. Their cuisine makes them one of the best in the island, in my opinion. Just choose your catch from the ice display and let yourself be advised about the cooking and the wine pairing. The placement of the restaurant may not be very atractive, compared with the sea...

Although the location was not the best, the meal & service was excellent. We arrived just before the restaurant opened for evening meals at 8pm, but the waiter was extreemly polite and brought us a glass of cava each on the house whilst we waited. The Canarian potatoes we had as a starter were delicious and the main courses of... More
