Located in the old part of the retirement and tourism centre of Puerto de Santiago the interior is vey positive surprise. Modern and minimalistic. Service very personal because here are two service people only. Very friendly and good command of English. The food is outstanding incorporating elements of molecular cooking. A few dishes provide on the spot fumed fish. And... More

We had the 10 course tasting menu with accompanying wines at €120 per head. A rather bizarre point is they then charge you an extra €1.80 for a piece of bread!! The quality of the food and presentation was exquisite from the bouche amusee's of squid and choccy flavoured black pudding then throughout the ten courses ending in a spectacular... More

We chose the Grand tasting menu (75 euros) and regretted nothing. We asked for their advice on a local white wine and they chose a very reasonably priced and delicious one. The variety of dishes and their beautiful presentation made each of the nine courses a veritable delight.

El Rincón de Juan Carlos is a family-run restaurant, rewarded with one star from Michelin Guide. It took 14 years for a small ordinary restaurant to become an incredible diamond. This restaurant is located in a quiet street right in the centre of Los Gigantes. Small and cosy dining area, filled with white, light brown, beige colours, wooden ground and... More

Amazing presentation and food! Wine flight was a really good pairing. Aiming at top end dining and the food, wine and staff hit the spot, but the building has no windows and does give a different atmosphere. Would definitely recommend going. We went for the tasting menu and were really impressed! The local wines they had were amazing!

This restaurant has been one of our favourites since it started back in 2004. This year they have managed to get the attention of Michelin. They have put together two excellent menus, one 5 course menu, and one 10 course menu. Both with excellent wine to go with each tasty dish. Your tastebuds can look forward to three to four... More

Excellent as always- the menu has moved on the style and presentation are, if anything, even better. I chose the tasting menu with matching wines. Excellent. Plus there is always the friendly greeting from the ladies.

We visited this Michelin recommended restaurant while on holiday in Tenerife and it was the highlight of the holiday. The taster menu was fabulous with every dish delighting the taste buds with variety and beautiful presentation. Highly recommended.

Perfect 10 course meal with excellent wines. New tastes, perfect service, and a place I can recommend strongly. In Belgium it would be a 2*.
