    Tropical Cafe: Fruit and Burgers!

    by mazzap Updated Aug 11, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    To find this place, look out for the pirate!

    Each time we go to Tenerife, we manage to find ourselves drawn back to this restaurant!

    We are never disappointed - the combination of the fruit with the savoury food served, is refreshingly different!

    Great range of fresh fruit juices too!

    Favorite Dish: Mostly we order burgers - as they're home made and BIG!! I like the 'avocado burger' with it's very generous half an avocado placed beneath the bun top!

    The only complaint (but it wouldn't deter me from going back) is the slooooow service!!

    Restaurant Moli: Best Pizza We Had All Week

    by mazzap Updated Mar 25, 2007

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Keep this one in mind!

    Lovely seafront position in central Playa de las Americas. A great place to sit and watch the world go by whilst eating the best pizza around! The coffee and beer was just right too!

    Favorite Dish: We shared a pizza and plate of chips and it was plenty for a filling lunch for 2. Incredibly cheap at 15 Euros including drinks.

    Cake any one?

    Local Bakery

    The bakery stands in the little village square with lovely trees & tiny Church.
    It bakes bread & cakes for the local restaurants and offers great coffee drinks & snacks served outside beneath the shady trees.
    Sit & watch as the bakers come out for a breath of fresh air & a ciggy

    Favorite Dish: Again the cakes - I never eat cakes at home but these homemade little gems are yummy.

    Pizzeria La Trattoria: Disappointing :-(

    by mazzap Updated Mar 25, 2007

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Pizzeria - La Trattoria

    This was our first meal of the week soon after arriving in Tenerife but sadly it was really not up to our standards. Garlic bread with tomato was a small split breakfast roll with very little topping, the ravioli and mushrooms were most definitely from a tin - yukkk!! and the pizza seemed nothing more than a supermarket pre-packed effort!

    The service was very poor and staff were not particularly welcoming. Not a restaurant we're everl ikely to return to which is a real shame becasue the location is perfect and it looks great inside and out - but looks can be deceiving..............!

    Feed the birds

    Excellent shady restaurant.
    Very relaxing for a cool drink & tasty snack.

    Favorite Dish: The canarian desserts are like little cakes in all manner of flavours.
    The selection is immense.
    PS the tucan was enjoying his lunch tearing lumps of the nearby olive tree.

    Casa de Miranda: Upmarket Local Food

    by easyoar Written Jan 16, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    inside Casa de Miranda

    This is a pretty upmarket restaurant in the heart of Puerto de al Cruz (very near to the Casa de Aduana).

    It is very ornate inside and has an olde worldy feel.

    The building and restaurant date back to around 1730.

    This restaurant is a bit more expensive than most around it however.

    Punto Fijo: Quick and easy food

    by easyoar Written Jan 16, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Punto Fijo Restaurant

    Don't think from the title that this is anything like a burger bar. It looks a bit cobbles together, but the food is actually quite good.

    It's more of a Tapas type of bar, where you just order a few portions of whatever takes your fancy.

    Favorite Dish: The Fried Canarian Fish was very good.

    Restaurante Romantico: Always one we Return to!

    by mazzap Updated Mar 25, 2007

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Dinner for 2!

    A superb restaurant all round. We have eaten here several times over the last few years and it never alters in quality and friendliness.

    We last ate here on Valentines night 2007! A lovely evening with delicious food. Deep fried camenbert, Canarian garlic prawns, fillet steaks and house wine - all perfect!

    Complimentary after dinner liquors and a rose for the ladies was a very romantic finishing touch to the evening :-)

    Favorite Dish: The steaks are definitely the best around here!

    Monasterio: A Temple for the food

    by agarcia Updated Mar 10, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    El Monasterio

    The most fascinating fact about El Monasterio is that it is build over the remains of an authentic monastery. Apparently, the owners of the restaurant putted a good pile of money in front of the few monks that lived there, who didn't have to think it twice to make the deal. After being acquired and restored, El Monasterio become one of the most charismatic restaurants of the Island, especially because of its placement, at the top of the Orotava valley (the views from the terrace are quite remarkable).

    Nowadays, it includes 5 different restaurants, from a cafetería, a couple of tapa bars and the original top end restaurant, which is the one I'll like to recommend. There, the monastic atmosphere could still be admired.

    Tasca La Carpintería: La Carpintería

    by agarcia Updated Mar 10, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    La Carpinter��a

    This establishment in La Laguna is quite popular among the locals, and I can clearly understand that fact; La Carpintería (the carpentry) is probably one of the best tascas (kind of an old fashioned tapa bar) I've ever been. The rations are huge, and I mean, really really huge, both in quantity and in quality, with prices that are a bit below the already low overall prices of the Canary Islands.

    Favorite Dish: They serve a "Pa amb tumaca" with jamón that is absolutely delicious, as well as a huge tortilla de patatas that you cannot miss.

    Casa Begona: Seafood Canarian Style

    by SabrinaSummerville Updated Oct 14, 2007

    The Crab
    1 more image

    Our hotel was so delightful that we were tempted not to leave. However, after seven nights curiosity got the better of us and we took a taxi into the nearby village of San Juan. Friends had recommended a restaurant right in the port, but we decided to venture a little further afield and were rewarded with the discovery of the wonderful Casa Begona.

    It’s a typically Canarian style restaurant, specialising in locally caught seafood. The fish and shellfish are on display and you can choose what you want. The fish is displayed on ice, while the shellfish are still live in tanks. I was delighted to discover that although there is a menu, the chef and proprietor are only too delighted to oblige by tailoring dishes to your taste or even creating a dish to your requirements.

    Indeed, I was so impressed with the food here that I came back a second night. It being the last night of my holiday, it simply wasn’t possible to visit again.

    Service is both efficient and friendly. They don't speak much English here, but we all understood each other no problem.

    Favorite Dish: On both occasions we indulged in the enormous hot seafood platter for our main course – a tasty, fresh from the sea assortment of fish and shellfish that included salmon, turbot, anglerfish, monkfish, razorfish, langoustines, mussels, clams….. The list goes on. The fish seemed to be poached in a broth of wine, garlic, and tomato and was served with potatoes cooked in the same broth, bundles of miniature asparagus, and other vegetables. Tis was accompanied by hot, freshly made rolls.

    To start, on the first night I had genuine Canarian garlic soup served in a covered toureen complete with the egg at the bottom of the dish and the crusty white bread. I love that soup so much that I would be tempted to eat it every day. On the second occasion I asked for a crab and got to choose my own from the tank. This was subsequently served up to me broiled, chilled, and with the main body of the crab holding a cold crab soup. I cannot remember when I ever had such divine crab.

    The maitre d’ recommended a French Chardonnay which, at just €21 a bottle, was surprisingly palatable and perfect with the fish.

    Complimentary liqueurs ended the most perfect seafood meal of the holiday.

    Otelo

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    At Otelo

    Located at the end of Adeje’s steepest street, just at the Barranco del Infierno, Otelo restaurant is a place not to be missed. Try “Poillo con ajo” (garlic chicken), the house’s specialty, deliciously spicy...with a Dorada of course, the local beer, brewed on the island. Have a seat and enjoy the view on the Barranco, very pretty !
    Fair prices.
    NB : some say Canarian beer is not the best one but I didn’t mind, and I like to drink something that I can’t find at home :-)
