  • I am visiting Los Gigantes in mid October and someone has told my wife that all the bars and restaurants close at around 9.00pm. Is there any truth in this?

  • Thanks for taking the time to reply you've put my mind at rest. We are looking forward to a nice relaxing holiday and we do like wandering round a place in the evenings having a few drinks and finding somewhere for an evening meal - thanks again  :)

  • Thanks to those who replied to my original post we?ve just returned from Los Gigantes after having the most wonderful week?s holiday. I thought I would like to provide some feedback to others who might use the forum for a little pre holiday research. I have tried to stick to the original theme of the post but excuse me if I stray a little to include breakfast and lunch!
    Los Gigantes was just right for us ? a pleasant mix of nice bars and restaurants in one of the most spectacular settings we have stayed in. We visited Tipsy Terrace, which is a bistro next to the tennis courts and is good for a drink or a romantic candlelit dinner ? but it is advisable to book as the one night we fancied eating dinner there it was full. Further down the main road is the wine bar at the harbour club, which is situated on a terrace with a lovely view over the sea. The food is good and plentiful and they provide some kind of entertainment most evenings ? they show sporting events on a big screen but that is indoors so it doesn?t bother diners who are not into soccer etc. Most places do the obligatory full English breakfast but some do offer alternatives such as Tipsy Terrace and The Calypso bar, which does porridge, cereals and the tastiest kippers I have ever tried. Across from Ocean Drive and Calypso bar is Little Italy ? looks nice from the outside but be warned I would avoid this place like the plague. I have never experienced such rude service and poor attempt at ?Italian? food in all my life ? I could rant on for pages about our dreadful experience but if this feedback stops just one person eating there then I will be pleased.
    There is pleasant walk round to Peurto Santigio and Playa Arena and we went a few nights and in Peurto Santiago we would recommend El Pescador 2 for lovely food and friendly service and Route 66 for entertainment ? particularly Old Dogs New Tricks who were excellent but be early to get a seat as it was packed when we went. A little bit further on if you follow the path by the sea there is a terrace bar called Fisherman?s Inn overlooking the small cove / beach. We had the nicest lunch their all week despite the regular chef being off ill. One other place worthy of mention in Los Gigantes if you fancy fine dining is Juan Carlos down an alley just beyond CK?s bistro ? lovely food but pricey.
    Little Italy excepted, this was a marvellous holiday in a resort where I think I will be returning to many times in the future.

  • Totally agree with you about tipsy terrace the girls have spent a lot of money and it shows. Good luck to sally and the team hope to see you in march it?s a welcome change to see something new. Friday nights are busy so I suggest you book the baileys cheesecake is brill. We also went to the wine bar I would suggest you book a table on the lower terrace away from the singer so you do not feel obliged to clap when he?s finished singing a song you can carry on eating your meal . we went to Juan carlos had the seven course menu ?janey? not sure I?d  have it again but it was worth the experience . And I know what you mean about little Italy tried to sting us for a bottle of wine. But they can cook squid better than some fish restaurants I know. Did you visit harbour lites I know it?s a bit of a trek but well worth it, the best mojitos in the village. In fact it?s the only place in the village you can get one , and if Gail tells you she can?t  make coffee don?t believe her, she just doesn?t  want to

    All in all a fantastic months holiday great weather, good company and some good food and wine

    Even the sixty odd blokes turning on a boat on the beach didn?t spoil it

  • I also agree about Tipsy Terrace, we had two lovely meals there in September and will definitely be back.  We haven't eaten in Little Italy for years but when we first visited Los Gigantes about 15 years ago, we ate there often.  It was always packed, the food was good, view great and there was a guy with a guitar strumming laid back songs.  What happened in the following years is such a shame.  As for Harbour Lites, I don't want everyone to go there in case we can't get a table, but if you do, beware of the Margaritas and the Moscow Mules, remember you are very close to the harbour ;)

  • Have to agree about Little Italy in Los Gigantes. 8 of us went the other night and not very good, food or service. Also a little scam they run there, when you arrive there are small rolls on the table. You help yourself, as you assume they are complementary, then when the bill comes they charge you 1.25 euro per roll. Also a small soft drink is over 3 euro?s. Not very amusing !!!!  :'(

  • The roll scam is going on in El Meson and El Barco Nino (if you choose the set menu...say no when the rolls come round as they are not complimentary)....at El Meson it's rolls and dips and garlic bread that suddenly appear, again you are not asked and you are charged.
