This place is HUGE!! We just wanted a drink so decided to go in here as it looked appealing all lit up at night. We were given a covered booth with heater and strip lighting. The drinks menu is as big as the establishment! The...price of the beers aren’t too bad but the prices of the spirits are unbelievably high, even for local spirits! I didn’t even bother to get a drink. Not good value for money so wouldn’t return.More

We were let down by a nearby restaurant but managed to get a table here. Service was great and they went above and beyond to find us a bottle of local wine we wanted. We ordered garlic prawns, prawn cocktail, sizzling lamb chops and pork...fillet and everything tasted delicious. The pork was pink which isn’t to everyone’s taste but it was lovely and tender. The setting is lovely and it’s a great place to people watch.More

We always go to The Gran Sol for lunch and dinner. You need to get there fairly early in the evening because it gets very busy. The view of the sea is lovely and the staff are very fast at attending you when you sit...down. The menu is large - the waiter will take your order but someone else usually brings it to you - so check if you have any allergies you told them that the second person brings you the right dish.More

We loved this restaurant and went there nearly every night of our holiday. The staff were so friendly and nice and worked so hard. The setting is lovely right by the sea and the paella and wine was lovely and reasonably priced. Loved the music...and atmosphere, had a really good vibe, and will definitely return on next visit to TenerifeMore

Great restaurant on the oceanfront. We came for dinner on New Year’s Eve, there were a lot of people, but the staff worked great! Pleasant and warm communication, great food, great quality cocktails. I recommend visiting this place!

All I can say is that the service is awfull. The manager is straight up rude.. does not listen at all. I prefer the service at Mac Donalds above this guy. Food was bad too. They gave me the wrong cocktail and forgot the starter.....even though we asked for it 3 times. Awful experience.. would not recommendMore

Nice place, great location. There are great breaks in the service chain. Waiting 90 minutes for cold food is not fair, the personal is absolutely not responsive or interested. .

Giant restaurant with bar areas too, so probably good for a few pre-sunset beers or cocktails. We went in for dinner and paella. The paella with chicken and seafood was good, I enjoyed it. The chicken element was a couple of small drumsticks each, it...did give a bit of added flavour. Points off for the bread offering, one sad dinner roll, the mojo sauces were good at least. The staff did seem manic, and disorganised but I was happy to wait. With plenty of restaurants around, not sure this would be on my return to list.More
