I have eaten here 4/5 times in the past and will be returning in May this year. Great location to sit and watch the world go by. Great selection of food and of course there is the one and only Anhonio who is very welcoming.

I always order fish here as its fresh and well cooked, the tapas are also very tasty. The kids menu is good and has good portion sizes. The restaurant is situated in a lovely spot on the harbour and... More

Went to Puerto Del Carmen for the friday market and decided to stay for lunch. I first went to El Poril 20 years ago and the food is still very good. Good friendly service and the owner still works there. Had a lovely lunch will be back!

We ate here twice this week as we really enjoyed the first meal! There was a good selection - the fish dishes were superb. A good choice of kid's dishes was available too. It's right next to a kid's playground too. The selection of fresh deserts looked lush - though we didn't sample them. The staff were really friendly and... More

My friends and I went for a late lunch on a Monday afternoon after a couple of drinks in the sun. There are a lot of places to eat round this area but we were glad with our choice. The owner was really friendly and explained to us that his mother had freshly baked the bread rolls that morning, and... More

We've eaten here a fee times and the food is always excellent. Fresh home made bread dip and tapas. Tonight grilled tone and chicken. Lovely setting and friendly staff who remember that you've been before. Good prices too.
