First restaurant we tried on arriving in Callao Salvaje after being encouraged in by a young guy outside it - he assured us that although prices were higher than elsewhere, the quality was also higher. I'm afraid we were disappointed. My husband had steak which he said was nothing special and I had chicken which was tasteless and smothered in... More

The steaks were super with flavorsome sauces. Also good size salmon fillet. We noted that their prices, particularly for speciality dishes are considerably higher than others nearby. Nice bottles of house rosado. Service was efficient but not overly friendly. It was quite busy but lacking something overall in atmosphere. On balance, would not rush back here.

Food is expensive but quality of the food is good. Food is well above average in Callao Salvaje. Food deserves 4 stars but service was somewhat weird and we did not get any recommendations from the waiter.

My 8 yr old had steak and chips and my daughter had chicken and chips! The steak was lovely and the chicken was cooked perfectly. I had the medallions of... More

I arrived in Callao Salvaje on Friday to meet my girlfriend and her parents. She spoke of a chap who had taken her for being Spanish given her looks and that he had tried to encourage her and her parents to eat at his restaurant. He then tried a few nights later when we walked down past the restaurant but... More

This is one of the most expensive restaurants in Callao. You can sit outside on the terrace and look at the sea, whilst drinking Sangria or chilled Beers. The food choice is great, can recommend the Fish Platter sharer, tastes great. So why is it not No1? Very simply it lacks the finesse of Santa Lucia. The wine glasses are... More

So in we went. Admittedly I wasnt well suffering from days of over indulgence. The other 7 all had meals and drinks, the grilled salmon was the highlight along with the grilled Chicken. Lovely terrace on the corner going down to the beach. Nicholas is very good at charming the ladies and everyone says thanks for the excellent service !!

El Ancla is the best restaurant in Tenerife. A relaxing, welcoming atmosphere and great views of the beach Ajabo to seduce all of your senses. An evening full of flavors accompanied of our house wine from La Rioja. We invite you to stop by our restaurant, located in the quiet area Callao Salvaje (Adeje).
