  • This place is fantastic with lots of character and things going on. It's a great place to sit and have a coffee, beer or I've cream and watch the world go by. You will never get bored here as there is...  more »
  • Plaza Charco is absolutely central in Puerto De La Cruz. It is not so great, but there is activity both day and night, and it is quite nice with a good mix of restaurants, some of which are clearly better than others. You have to use a taxi, this is also the place to go to.

  • It is in the ancient and lively area. It is a nice place and not so mammoth and standard as other areas of Puerto de la Cruz.

  • Food was OK but it could be better. Servis was very good.
  • Worst service in a long time - we never got our pizza. After over half an hour of waiting and watching people (who had arrived after us) getting theirs we found out ours had not even been started.... we left without waiting even longer
  • Large and good pizzas. Service was so so: quite slow and brought the wrong beer.
  • Yuk. Yuk yuk. Just not for me.
  • Is very good and the waiters are efficient and fast. In 2 we spent less than 20 euros, with pizza, a steak that was out of this world, water, wine and coffee.
