San Petronio

Reviewed By Ineke_George - Oosterhout

San Petronio is located uphill a dark street beyond Retamar (when by foot take a flashlight with you). It is spacious and has a nice atmosphere. Being an Italian restaurant it was surprising that the wines were mainly Spanish. The wine recommended was OK but not special. The choice of wines was somewhat limited. The big heavy glasses were not perfect to enjoy good wine anyway. The pasta and the mita (kind of lasagna) with mushrooms tasted good. So a good restaurant but not outstanding.

Balcon Taburiente

Reviewed By Jan Martin T - Groningen, The Netherlands

Honestly speaking we were only here for just over an hour. We were on our way back from our Caldera hike. Friendly staff, ice cold beers and an amazing Terrace overlooking the Caldera. Only thing is that it is established in a rural area. Dont think I would have visited if we had not been on a tour. But nevertheless, a very comfortable and enjoyable hour.

La Mariposa

Reviewed By Trevor L - Londonderry, Northern Ireland

We ate here twice, so were happy to return for a second visit. I am not sure we would bother about a third. The food was good but I think a microwave was involved to reheat food previously prepared because there was a small cold spot in the middle. Apart from this I would have given it a five.

Restaurante Arepera El Jable

Reviewed By WellingtonNewkiwi - Wellington

You are drawn to this restaurant by the logo, a rip off from a well known spanish drinking chocolate company. It is located right next to the bus station in LL de Aridane, surrounded by greenery. For anyone unfamiliar with Arepas and Cachapas, they were brought back from Venezuela by the returning Canarians, a sort of fried crispy maize pancake. They are usually eaten with tuna, chicken fillings and accompanied by salads. I would recommend the very exotic fruit salad for dessert !
There are many seats outside and you can see the food being prepared. It does get a little cold in winter outside, LL d A, is a little away from the sea and sea level !
But overall , an exotic Latin American experience

Interpreting fresh and regional products serving in different cuisines of the world.

Reviewed By peter n - Birmingham, United Kingdom

Ate here twice. Had the mixed tapas starter. Waiter talked us through every dish. Very keen and knowledgable. Every dish was of very high quality. Then had an excellent steak. Second time had very good rabbit as the main coarse. Slightly more expensive than most of the resaurants around but worth every euro.

We had a nice dinner in this restaurant. The portions were very big ( a little bit to much for us). Inventive cook. Canary food with a twist.

Carpe Diem

Reviewed By BerkshireTigger - Newbury, United Kingdom

We ate here twice during our week in Tazacorte but you do need to book especially if you want to eat outside. The menu is imaginative and food beautifully presented. Staff were very friendly and spoke both English and German. A small dish of olives came with the drinks and mini heart shaped coffee ice creams came with the bill which was a lovely touch. On the first visit I had corn soup which was really tasty followed by hake with a lightly spiced sauce with almonds and a side salad and then I succumbed to the chocolate truffles and brandy cherries. On the second visit I had the pumpkin and papaya soup which my husband had really enjoyed on the first visit and then the incredibly tender beef stroganoff with green beans and fresh tagliatelle. Along with wine on both occasions the bill came to just over 60 Euros.

La Vitamina

Reviewed By zenu - London

We stopped here for lunch after visiting the old part of town of Los Llanos. Gentle pace, small and rustic restaurant with a few tables on the pavement. Cooler inside! The bathrooms are clean and the restaurant is wheel chair friendly. Service is friendly but a little slow (we were in no rush, however..)
The menu (both tapas and main dishes) caters for all tastes and pockets (from cheap to mid range) and the choice for vegans and vegetarians is good. Furthermore, they are willing to modify the dishes according to personal requirements.
There is a very good choice of fresh juices and the herby carrot, mango and papaya juice (3,50euros) had the thumbs up.We opted for the tapas: tortilla with avocado sauce (good), soya burger with a variety of vegetables (delicious), lentil curry with bread (a little salty and a tad dry)and a vegetable salad. The portions are fairly big. All in all not a 'wow' factor but the dishes are wholesome made with fresh produce and simply prepared - just right for a sleepy, hot afternoon! The bill for three people was 37 euros.

Reviewed By fivedauns - Aachen, Germany

Great location with sea view but apart from the busy center. Very attentive owner and staff. 5 tapas dishes is the max you should order for two, is really enough. Cantarelle and garlic; avocado with tuna carpaccio and roasted sesame!!
People know each other in here, meaning plenty of regular customers.
Nice!
