We keep returning to this outstanding Los Cristianos eatery. The Cine Bar is a landmark restaurant in the South of Tenerife and has to be considered world famous. It is only a small place with a small menu but is guaranteed to hit the spot.
Superfresh sardines and juicy prawns roasted to perfection, hot bread, tomato and onion salad and ice-cold beer. Well it really doesn't get much better, unless you throw in some crispy chicken wings!
Smothered in salt and lemon. As usual half of them disappeared before I could get the camera out!
My son-in-law Craig (seen below) was extremely pleased with himself after devouring his first ever sardine with his fingers and leaving the skeleton intact.
It's not as easy as you might think but it is certainly the best way to enjoy these maritime delights. Here below is Cine Bar owner Carlos with my Daughter Domi.
Carlos and his team have generated decades of enjoyment for residents and visitors to Tenerife. You will find the Cine Bar behind the Bar Bahia on the seafront of Los Cristianos. It is a 10 minute ride by car or taxi. Please don't worry if you see a queue. Just get a drink at the bar and enjoy a short wait, not usually more than 15 minutes. It is worth having a little patience.
Head Waiter 'Tony' says 'hi' from the tiny kitchen that serves an endless supply of traditional Canarian dishes in this amazing place.
The next time you visit Club Olympus or Tenerife, do try and give the Cine Bar a shot. I promise you, you will love it.
Cheers and all the best.
