A good mix of locals and tourists visit here. The food was great and at very reasonable prices. As others have said, the view may not be as good as some of the sea front places but if you want good honest tasty good then you should visit here!

Open fronted tapas bar, not in a particularly attractive location but don't let that put you off. Warm welcome and friendly service. Popular with locals. Good food, well prepared and presented, huge portions. Boxed up what we couldn't eat so we could take it with us. One dish might well do for two unless you are massively hungry! Very good value for money. Might well return.

As we got lost to find our way to our holiday villa, we just drove into their front yard to take a U turn.... and we did notice a small eatery with full of local people and some construction workers in high viz jacket all eating lunch. As we already got lost our way and very hungry we thought to make the best of it. We thought to try out their food and to all the six of us, without exception, their food was out of this world. They were serving the daily menu for lunch, which included chicken soup, pork and potatoes for main and a creme caramel for dessert, just under a tenner per person. It did only take the first bite to work out why the place was full with locals.... the best pork we ever had in our lifetime. The service was very quick and efficient. Later we found out the man who was serving us was the owner ( Victor, I guess). As the food was so nice and yummy, we decided to retun the next day for Dinner. It was a different team works in the evening and they were superfriendly and the chef supremely talented. He did make some of the best tapas we ever had. We kept going every evening to taste his daily creations. His name was Augustine and was very passionate about what he does. We never ordered anything, instead he would tell us, tonight I am gonna make for you this... this.. and that... etc. Cynthia, the waitress was of all smiles all through and was very polite, and same time efficient. If we ever make it again to anywhere in the canary islands, we would definitely visit El Tonel.
Please bear in mind, this is not a posh place, its a friendly, cheap, local bar which served 100% tasty fresh food. Dont expect too much in terms of view or ambience. But if you love good food, cooked in the real local way, avoinding this place would be criminal!!
