If you go up this little snicket (Ginnel, alley, passageway) on the seafront in Los Cristianos (below)
Which you will find next to the bar Bahia just by the port in Los Cristianos between the two buildings below.....
You will find one of Tenerife's best little eatery's. It is called the Cine Bar because this was where a tiny little outdoor cinema used to be 30 years ago. The Cine Bar has only 12 items on the menu, Chicken wings, sardines, mackerel, King Prawns, Octopus, Hake, Cuttlefish, Herrings, Tuna, Onion and Tomato salad, Canarian potatoes and chips. They are all delightful. We try to get in here a couple of times per month if we can. My favourites really are the sardines but Jane loves the prawns and the lads enjoy the chicken wings.
To be honest it is all superb and to enjoy it sitting outside under the awning with a bottle of vino is as good as it gets.
Honestly it is such simple food but so tasty and such great value for money that it is without a doubt one of my very favourite places in Tenerife to get lunch. Many Club Olympus owners already know this place but if you don't then do find it and give it a go.
Because the sardines (eaten with your hands as they should be) are fantastic! All the food comes from a tiny little kitchen which is all run by one family.
Here is Jose grabbing the next order to fly out to a table. It is Jose's brother Carlos who is the owner. We have been coming to the Cine Bar for nearly 30 years and the quality has not changed one bit.
Here is Ivan about to devour a sardine, you can tell that his diet is really working??!!??
After a bit of lunch at the Cine Bar we normally grab a quick coffee at the little kiosk by the car park in the port of Cristianos as we head back to the cars.
Here I am with Ivan and Sedge at the little Kiosk before we head back to Club Olympus in Garden City.
Please do try the Cine Bar in Los Cristianos when you are next out in Tenerife. Don't worry if you have to queue for a short while (usually 10 to 15 minutes max) to get a table. It is worth the wait and you will enjoy a genuine Canarian eating experience. Los Cristianos is also a lovely place to spend a bit of time as most of you already know. We have been using this little fishing village since the early 70's and love it.
