My wife and I had lunch here during our visit to Tenerife. We were excited to try the food as the reviews we'd read were very encouraging. Sadly, we were somewhat disappointed by our experience. The food is good, which is the main thing. My...More

We chose this having researched fish restaurants on tripadvisor. We passed it at lunch time and there was a long queue outside, so we went back in the evening. It isn't one you are going to chose while walking past as it's up an alley...More

The restaurant is very simply furnished. It is place for quick lunch, not for dinner. The price for value is reasonable.

Went here at lunchtime and ordered the hake with side salad. It was bigger than I thought, seasoned well. It was the best fish I have ever tasted. With someone who had the swordfish and the king prawns, we all thoroughly enjoyed our food. Would...More

Whilst you often have to queue for a table here it's always worthwhile. The fish is straight out of the sea and costs next to nothing. It's. It fancy but it's good.

This restaurant is located in a prominent area. I doubt they will close during the busiest time of the year.
I would like to know if they do Paella and/or other Spanish fish stews?

Limited menu and dependent on fresh fish available but if you go might be worth suggesting they do paella, they are very friendly and open to suggestions, could become a 'Sunday' special or similar
I would appreciate the dates that El Cine are closed during Summer...I arrived last year on the 10th September only to find it was closing for a fortnight...I would hate this to happen again..
