Unlike some cut-price pretentious attempts at fine dining you'll find in the Canaries, this one is the real deal. Refined cookery, intelligent and interesting flavour combinations (pairing Japanese classics with Spanish ingredients worked well), highly-trained and helpful waiting staff. For this reason I've given it 5 out of 5, because it's so much better than other nearby restaurants that get similar marks, but a couple of dishes need improvement - particularly those with meat. The gyoza were lovely and crispy but the pork inside was a little dry, and the grilled iberico pork didn't quite have the melt-in-the-mouth wow factor I was expecting. Maybe they need to choose a fattier, less lean cut. On the other hand, the tuna tartare was fresh with an invigorating wasabi kick, and the panna cotta was delicate and delicious. Overall I'd recommend it if you fancy something a little special and refined.

An excellent Japanese restaurant close to the Playa El Duque. Outstanding service. The menu and the quality of the food was such that it felt that you were dining in a Japanese restaurant rather than eating Japanese cuisine in a Tenerife bar.

Very good service by nice crew. Food is very special and well worth the visit. Deliscious. New thinking in every detail. Good wines and drinks. If it is a nice and warm evening, sit outside in the garden. Or on the balcony were you can look at people on the boardwalk passing by. We had our dinners inside, due to cool evenings. The interior is modern, fresh and suites the asian profile.

All I can say is WOW. My brother and I adore Japanese food, we love finding new places. During our stay in Tenerife we had been utterly disappointed with the restaurants and food in general. Then whilst out walking, we came across Sensu... We were delighted. We ordered the tataki tuna, ebi tempura sushi, spicy tuna sushi and the chicken teriyaki. As experiences go, this was up there with the best restaurant service we have ever received (having been to many high end restaurants). A tasty amuse bouche to begin and this set the tone in a beautiful way. The seared tuna was just superb! The ebi tempura sushi was gorgeous and the spicy tuna sushi was also very tasty! Absolutely no faults to this restaurant. Considering we were out for a walk, dressed in “very casual” clothing, we received the best service and were treated with great care. All in all, this restaurant is a must try for Japanese foodies! Sadly, the majority of restaurants around Fañabe are awful, especially on the sea front. But Sensu is a hidden gem. The only tasty, food quality food we had over a week in Tenerife.
