Really nice Spanish restaurant but the fish and the views are the real stars. Service willing but Spanish only really spoken, but worth the effort as the food was great. Good wine to go with the food at a reasonable price.

This place should be great but it is totally let down by its staff. The three waiters were each as unfriendly, unhelpful and disinterested as each other. We ordered the mixed fish and hoped that the quality of the meal would outweigh the terrible welcome....More

Set high above a mini harbour, this is an interesting restaurant, with nice views if you sit next to the windows (often wide open) and with eclectic décor & furniture. Our paella came in just over 30mins, not the advertised 45mins. It was OK but...More

Stumbled upon this place as we walked along the coastline. Quirky and friendly although not too many tables for the amount of trade that came by. Go for the specials they will by far be freshest and not too expensive.

This is a place that is, especially compared to other restaurants around the island, barely average - at most. Food was just good enough to eat it and leave, nothing more. It wasn't bad, but it was our worst meal during our visit to Tenerife....More

This is an outstanding local restaurant with wonderful friendly personal service at a very reasonable price. The fresh fish was a delight. We had the best sea bass we'd ever tasted. The Gambas was delicious and the atmosphere was extremely relaxing. We would highly recommend...More

We have always had very nice seafood at this restaurant, but the last time we visited was not so good.

In the peaceful fishing town of Alcala but still within easy reach of West Tenerife���s most popular tourist resorts, you���ll find Escondida, a chilled out lounge bar and restaurant with a young, funky feel. Wide windows offer stunning sea views while deep colourful sofas are the perfect place to relax with a delicious mojito before moving through to the restaurant, with the same views but a more formal setting. The compact but varied menu offers everything from tapas dishes for a real taste of Spanish food through to blackboard specials, made using in season local ingredients. Every dish is beautifully presented and a real treat for holidaying foodies after an authentic experience.
