    Tejeda is maybe one of the most beautiful and charming villages that I have seen so far on Gran Canaria.

Tejeda Restaurants

  • Spanish food

    Very nice traditinional Canarian food. All the staff speak very well English, and the owner speaks Danish as well.


    This restaurant has some of the best food that I have eaten so far on the island. But it's also incredibly expencive! I haven't tried any other restaurants in Tejeda so I don't know how the prices of the other restaurants are here. If you are on a budget you'd better look at the menues of the other places, otherwise it's absolutely worth a visit....
