Went there with a friend to have a beer and we also had Camarones, little shrimps, very fresh, very tasty and a good follower with a beer. Did a tour of the restaurant, which is much larger than it looks from the outside. Very delicately decorated with things relating to fishing. Had a look at the fish they had this... More

I had the best octopus ever, they serve it and prepare it with oil, vinegar and salt at your table. The waiters are real professionals and they are really good at their job, suggesting local specialties and always making sure you have the best experience. Would recommend it with no doubts!

We have been in El Tunel several times simply because this place is one of the few in San Andres that are almost always open. First time we took a large grilled fish for three and it was delicious. Next time we were trying various seefood. Since you pay for the fish by weight, they serve you really big fish... More

Tucked away in one of the smaller side streets of San Andrés, El Tunel was a great place for us to stop for lunch. The restaurant had a very local feel to it, with many members of kitchen staff talking and laughing with many of the patrons. The interior is somewhat crowded with seating very tightly packed and plenty of... More

Service was good but the food wasn't great unfortunately. Pretty sure the octopus was cooked in the microwave which left it inedible. Also seemed very expensive compared to other 'better' local restaurant's..

My wife and me did visit this retaurant the 18 nov. 2014. The waiter did not give us much choice. He told he had no menu card to show us. The fish served was very good. The wine was medium. They served papas arugadas we not ordered. This was probably a left-over from some days before and re-cooked so dry... More

You see the crude signs outside and the entrance into the restaurant, and you think, no way I will go in there! But don`t be deceived, this is a place where fish and seafood is cooked and served with passion. You will not go to this place to admire its interior, its a local and certainly rustic tavern. But if... More

We have visited this restaurant twice this week, today we had "Pescado variades del dia", and their fantastic vino blanco "Flor de Chasna". Inexpensive, but very good quality. Absolutely recommendable.
