Must have walked past this restaurant hundreds of times and didn't give it a second thought. My wife and I both enjoy pasta though and checked out TripAdvisor which highlighted Baricentro.Sometimes you read comments like ' this was some of the best pasta I've ever eaten' and you think, some correspondents 'need to get out more', however, on this occasion they could very well be right!Spotlessly clean, well appointed with interesting Italian artefacts and friendly staff,, so far we were impressed.Two glasses of the very good house rosado helped set the scene whilst we perused and ordered from the well chosen selection of dishes on the menu.Sharing a starter of bruschetta, it was at this point we agreed we had made a good restaurant choice. The bread was lightly toasted and the garlicky tomato topping was seasoned perfectly and drizzled with a nice 'peppery' olive oil - absolutely delicious. Next we both had spaghetti dishes, my wife the pesto and the 'scampi' for me. Both dishes were cooked to absolute perfection, with al dente spaghetti and for my dish, well cooked and succulent prawns in a garlic and chillie oil - historic.To complement the food we selected a bottle of verdicchio, which I must say was reasonably priced and of good quality.Although both of us were 'stuffed full' at this point, we reasoned that since the first two courses were superb, for completeness, we simply had to try the tiramisu.Quite honestly, this was 'up there' with best tiramisu either of us had ever eaten - and being from Scotland we both enjoy our puddings.So there you have it, Baricentro, what a find. So good we went back another twice during our two weeks in Puerto. Thanks for some great meals.

The initial impressions do make you wary. The outside area could best be described as unpretentious but donât be put off by that you are about to discover a little gem. When you sit down outside and look in you see a clean open modern kitchen where the food is cooked and prepared and you are greeted by smiling friendly people. The place is busy and the atmosphere is good. The menu isnât extensive but it is interesting. Our food was well cooked and well presented. The lemon chicken with couscous deserves special mention. The lemon chicken was lovely and subtle unlike many Chinese equivalents, the couscous and almonds was a good combination and the tsatziki was the final piece to a really good dish.The value was also excellent. Itâs only small we were lucky to get a table on walk in maybe advisable to book. If I could rate it 4.5 I would.

Con Pasion stands for a winebar with passion and where ambiance is just as important as our product. A spot where you can sit and settle down. With us it is all about good coffees and beautiful wines which can be combined with luxury lunches and delightfu
Dined here on the evening of 07/11.Highly impressed with the venue in every aspect that it provided from entering to leaving, especially the ambience which was so relaxing and romantic. Every colour and sound provided in the restaurant complimented the really good food and wine, it was almost uncanny how they managed to create such a serene mood to appreciate whilst enjoying their hospitality.Chose to taste 4 half glasses of local wine each and we left the choices to the very able young sommelier who explained the background story of where each bottle had been produced and what we were to expect in taste and flavour from each one. Not being regular wine drinkers, we were slightly apprehensive but we were put at ease with the friendly, unassuming service and thoroughly enjoyed every wine choice put forward to us. He hit the nail on the head with every description of each wine he recommended to us.We chose the tapas platter for two with breads. You receive around seven tapas dishes with a sauce and two types of bread. Everything we ate was of very good quality, really flavoursome and the empty dishes we left behind were a reflection of how much we enjoyed the dining experience. Their take on Canarian potatoes was a dish to behold, simply delicious.We can't recommend this restaurant highly enough: the staff are really professional, the food and wines are divine and once again, the background and ambience are just perfect. Highly recommended on all counts!Hi Michael,First of all we want to thank you a lot for this beautiful and comprehensive review. It is very nice to read that you enjoyed the entire setting as well the food and wine tasting. We are pleased you had such a good experience and left us with complete empty dishes :). Very kind of you that you recommend us highly on all counts. It was our pleasure having you with us and we definitely look forward to welcome you again soon.Cheers,Team Vinoteca Con PasiÃ³n.

Having spent the morning at the volcano we were hungry for lunch on the way back found this place via TripAdvisor, And wasnât disappointed. We were the only English people in the restaurant and thereâs only about five tables so had to wait. Although they spoke limited English they had a tablet that displayed the dishes they were offering, traditional Canarian cuisine. We opted for the rabbit and pork and werent disappointed. Reasonable price and the owner Was very friendly. My tip is to have ice cream or cake at the bakery just up the hill from the church after.

PequeÃ±o restaurante familiar de comida internacional con opciones vegetarianas. Comida como la de antes con un toque moderno
Surrounded of Italian and Indian cuisine, we found a good restaurant, good food and betting for a different level of kitchen.We asked for risotto, salmon and beef sirloin, everything yummy and very look like, homemade dessert "quesillo" was so excellent.

Haydee is the result of experience in the kitchens of the Suarez brothers. Victor, who has cooked with the greats of world cuisine (MartÃn Berasategui and Ferran AdriÃ¡)and Laura formed in one of the world's best culinary schools "Le Gordon Blue". Vanguard
The menu at Tasca la Haydee is a wonderful fusion of Canaraian and Asian food. As a an aperitif they brought us a Bloody Mary jelly and a selection of beautiful breads with a variety of butters and oil. To follow we shared a Bao Bun Stuffed with Soft Shell Crab. For the main course I had a wonderful mushroom risotto with Parmesan and John had the fried eggs with black sausage. For desert we shared a Trilogy of Raspberries. The meal was accompanied by a local red wine -TajinasteApparently they will be moving their location in February 2019 to what used to be restaurant LâArena 53, off of the Santa Cruz motorway. We highly recommend this restaurant. Worthy of a Michelin Star but at very reasonable prices.Thank you so much for your extremely kind words, Sally. We are extremely happy to hear that you enjoyed our cuisine as much as you did. Will be moving inf late February any new information will be updated via our social media channels.Once againg, thanks for your support. Best

San Diego Restaurant, the authentic Canarian flavor. Wrap yourself in the delicious flavors of our traditional grilled meat: chicken, pork steak, sirloin, entrecote, chistorras, black pudding, rabbit. All this without forgetting the fresh fish of our isla
Years ago this was a regular haunt of the Tenerife Amigos golf society & then for some reason we left. But 3 visits in the last couple of week puts San Diego back on the regular visit list. Chops, steaks & burgers to die for.....try it , great food super staff, cannot fault itSo happy to see you again. And glad you are enjoying our variety of dishes. We aim to please and hope to be a hole in one for everyone. We look forward to your next visit. Thanks for the kind review. Cheers.

Cocina de productos frescos y sabor tradicional canario adaptada a nuestros tiempor y servida de forma divertida y dinamica. Vistas espectaculares al Valle de La Orotava, El Teide y el mar...A fresh and traditional cousine modified to suit todays life and
So Disappointed! We we quite unwelcomed, I suspect when we called in without a reservation. A reservation was quite clearly not required as the restaurant only had 4 people in when we arrived and about 12 when we left. The food was fine although they bought us the wrong order . We made no fuss about this but they made no comment or recompense. After our main course was cleared we had no further contact even though we would have liked a dessert. We all felt like we were snubbed through our the service. After paying the owner ignored our departure. We had charming service from the young lady, thank you. However, I'm not sure what was wrong with us. The owner seemed to be all over the people from Germany and giving service to all the other tables. You win some and you loose some. We fine Brits have had great service in the area and will continue to support those establishments. We chuckled to ourselves as we didn't even get offered the old favorite sticky drink at the end. Things have clearly changed from when the nice old family were in charge. See for yourself self but don't be too British, even though we speak some Spanish it may change your welcome.

Santa Ursula isn't the first place you are going to think about going to in Tenereife ........ but this restaurant should be!We've be fortunate enough to eat in a terrific variety of wonderful Michelin starred restaurants in a variety of countries - we even went to Nub in Las Lagunas - sorry to say, its not a patch on Tasca de Oliver!Everything is simple, but spotless and the service is superb! Friendly and knowledgeable about both their food and wine and multi lingual.I have never been so moved by the quality of the food. Their chef, in a very small, but very well laid out galley kitchen, cooked me THE BEST French trimmed rack of lamb that I have EVER tasted. It was absolute perfection and even as I write, I can easily recall the flavours - I probably will not have rack of lamb again .......... until I go back, and I will definitely go back.
Mama Nena: food to share by Hermanos SuÃ¡rez.
Haydee has moved up the road, Mama Nena has been created by the Suarez. To call it "son of Haydee" is doing it a disservice. It stands on it's own.Four of us shared the dishes:Crispy Crab Bao with Yuzu Mayo. 2 between four of us. Managed to keep us all quiet (with maybe one exception!). Delicious.Salad of Crispy Prawns and red fruit vinaigrette. My oh my! Lovely.Tuna Tartar with gooseberry ponzu. Magnificent blend of a variety of different tastes which possibly shouldn't work but does.Meatballs over Udon noodles with teriyaki sauce. OMG - the taste of the noodles! Meatballs good too!!Pork Rib cooked at low temperature with strawberry hoisin - the previous dishes were excellent - so was this! Again, another wonderful blend of unexpected tastes. Which worked very well!And then came the Postres! Well this was seething else! Chocolate Foam, cream of galletta maria with date ice cream. The taste literally did explode in your mouth!Electric Lemon Pie - the best lemon pie I have ever tasted!Banana ceviche with tiger milk ice cream and rocoto. Can't really comment as I was unable to prise a taste! Suffice it to say there were many satisfied grunts being made!Crunchy vanilla strudel with kaffir lime ice cream and curry. This dish probably defines the whole meal, a blend of different tastes which probably shouldn't be mixed together but they work spectacularly well.2 bottles of Balancies White and two bottles of water. Much Pan and Mantiquilla. â¬146.A wonderful meal and thoroughly recommended.Thank you so much for such a kind review! We are truly honoured to receive this great words within our first month!We hope to have you back very soon so you can continue to experience our innovative cuisine. Best,
