Food and drink
It's classic French cuisine with the eponymous Alain's je ne sais quoi. From quail with pear to classic crêpe suzette, it's all impeccably prepared and presented.
The inside dining room is small and quirky with an informal ambience while the outside terrace is a romantic, candlelit setting.
The staff are friendly and efficient. With so few covers, it's unusual to be kept waiting even when full.
It's on an inauspicious back street behind the main promenade of Los Cristianos.
It's surprisingly good value for money, three courses come in at under 30 euros.
