I have been fortunate to visit El Medano several times and the meals I've had at El Templete are always a highlight. Authentic and absolutely delicious meals-start to finish. I love the ambiance and the service is impeccable. Can't wait to go again!

Must visit when in the area. Great food, especially the fish. From the outside doesn't look like much but don't let that put you off.

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...More
