The beautiful El Delfin is now top of our list of reasons to revisit Tenerife. I mean, the weather, the beaches and the lovely laid back lifestyle helps but what use is any of that without a spectacular restaurant to enjoy great food, drink and...hospitality! Situated spectacularly at the cliff edge and requiring several flights of steps to access (worth noting), we thought the trip was well worth it even with a 15 month old (and his pushchair) and we were proven very much correct. The owner and her team were very hospitable and accommodating of our little one (even offering baked beans to go with the gorgeous fresh fish) and prepared us gorgeous food over our two visits, from a tapas selection on our first visit to a lovely al a carte 3 courses on our second. You’d be forgiven for assuming this place is expensive, the quality of food and the location are worth more than what we paid and add to that the great service, good banter and lovely atmosphere and you have a bargain to write home about… We’d recommend booking if unlike us you plan to visit after 6pm and if so, definitely book one of the ‘outside’ (more of a balcony) tables to maximise the views. Our lad enjoyed mussels, fish, padron peppers and of course a cheeky lollipop to finish and if we didn’t fancy returning, he’d frankly be fuming! In short, visit here. Eat drink and be happy here. We’ll be back for sure…More

We were recommended to go to this hotel by a couple we met in reception at check-in. So glad we listened to them as the food was delicious. We had the local fish (wreck fish) and it was lovely. So meaty and just tasted lovely...and fresh. It was cooked very simply and served with canary potatoes, a huge salad and vegetables. We went for the house wine which was lovely and all came in at a very reasonable price. I would definitely recommend this restaurant. The waiter and owner were lovely, helpful and chatty. Let’s hope the season improves for them as they deserve it.More

We had a great evening. The first impression was made by a friendly waiter and restaurant owner. The food was delicious, good Spanish wine and the sunset we watched from the terrace. Finally, a decisive lemon cheesecake. We'll be back, I recommend!

Amazing place! From outside looks nothing special, but it has superb views to the ocean, exceptionally tasty food and very friendly staff. One of the best experiences in Tenerife.

The best restaurant in whole Tenerife!!! We ate here Fish croquettes for starters and then fish of the day: grilled Dorada and Lubina. Both were really fresh !!!! Both delicious!! Served with garlic and salad with Tenerife tomatoes!! Couldn’t be better. You can truly see...that it is a restaurant made with passion. What’s more, the restaurant has an amazing view on the ocean with scenic terrace. The service is outstanding, speaking Englisch, German and Russian. It is a bit hidden from big crowds. We highly recommend this restaurant! We will be back!!More

Even if the food wasn't such excellent quality and quantity for the price, I'd return just for the banter with the hostess and highly attentive and accommodating nature of the staff. I wish I had a local like this back home, one of the best...parts of my trip to Tenerife for my 30th birthday (they also did a handmade something for my second visit - see attached).More

I love the location of this place it’s right on the coast. You get to it by walking through a resort and down a few flights of stairs. I haven’t eaten here but I’ve had a few Aperol Spritz’s on the indoor terrace overlooking the...sea water pool. Really friendly and welcoming staff every visit. Great place for a drink and judging by the locals reaction a great place to eat.More
