We had high hopes when we first entered El Rincon Canario. The place is small but we had a nice welcome from the owner. A bowl of crispy breads and homemade mojo added positives to proceedings - so far so good. The disappointment comes with...More

Small restaurant with 6 tables, one eccentric and efficient British waitress and fabulous generous tapas. It made for a fun night as we enjoyed the house wine and five tapas between the two of us. I especially recommend the king prawns and the home-made sausages....More

Started out great. Welcoming nice servicer. Soup came out in a good timely manner so we can feed our toddler. The chicken soup was also very tasty which led us to believe that the dinner will be equally as good. We were wrong. From ordering...More

This is my favourite restaurant in the whole of the Island. The variety of dishes is amazing, being vegetarian sometimes limits what you eat. Here you could come all the time and never get bored of the same thing. The hosts are really what makes...More
