Los Limoneros

Reviewed By Alerock - Belluno, Italy

Very nice environment - cosy and elegant. Classic style. Food really excellent. All dishes I got tasted so good : setas a la plancha ( grilled mushrooms ), chopitos fritos ( fried baby squids ), sopa de berros ( soup of watercress ), chuletillas de cordero ( lamb chops ). Very good also the wine : Ribera del Duero ( Tempranillo ). Perfect and professional service. Los Limoneros is the right place to be if you are looking for something up-market a little bit formal. Unfortunately I found the restaurant a little bit overpriced.

Tacoa Microcerveceria y Restaurante

In our Micro-Brewery we brew beer according to the German law of purity from 1516. That means our beer is 100 % natural and fresh, without any types of preservatives and additives. The ingredients are only water, malted barley, hop and yeast. We hope to please you with our gastronomy inspired by a selected mix of the delicious german and canarian traditional cooking. We have a room for the children, a big Terrace, parking. Everyday open, from 1.00 pm

Found this German style micro brewery while on a day trip to Oritava. Fantastic atmosphere my husband worked his way through almost full beer menu, all of which are produced on site and said they were all excellent. Food also fantastic with a mix of both German and Spanish style tapas and main dishes.. Yes strange to have Croquettas followed by curried wurst but amazing!! Most importantly it was fantastic value for money. Will definitely visit next time we are on the Island.

Restaurante Los Angeles

Reviewed By John B - Bolton

We were staying in an apartment in the area and, after looking on trip advisor for places to eat, but failing to find our first choice and finding the second choice shut, settled on Los Angeles.
The interior is certainly different. They've made the inside almost look like a collection of caves, from a mixture of stones and breeze blocks, and I didn't think it makes it a very welcoming place. Not to my taste at all.
The food was ok. Pretty basic, unsophisticated and unexciting. But expensive for what they deliver.
I'd not recommend

Reviewed By AnniCatti

We came to the restaurant with a bigger group and had ordered a set meal for 20 € including starters, main dish, drinks and coffee.
The starters were a good seletion of typical Canarian dishes like cheese and mojo and crocetas, compared to other restaurants it wasn'r really special though. We had two different choices for the main dish. Fish or meat. I chose the meat which was pretty fatty though, in general the dish was nice though.
The restaurant is situated close to the highway and has many different smaller rooms with a good atmosphere.

Casa Luis

Reviewed By Tomasinski - Lodz, Poland

Casa Luis is a simple, yet very good restaurant in El Sauzal, frequented by the locals and specializing in seafood. There is no menu, you have to ask the owner/waiter for current selection available. We ordered calamares and fresh fish grilled in garlic and it was delicious! Also you have a great choice of local wines. We also received a vodka-lemon shot on house.

Fantastic Bodega, winery, restaurant with great views!

Reviewed By ROBERTJ55 - Watford, United Kingdom

We booked the lunch and winery package the evening before our visit.
We were warmly welcomed and chose lunch before the visit.
The set lunch included the speciality, black roast pork, and a bottle of their own wine.
The setting was very fine and the tour interesting. We bought a couple of bottles of their wine to take home.

Restaurante El Calvario

Reviewed By graham p - Canary Islands, Spain

We took a chance to try this Restaurant-Guachinche on a Sunday lunchtime as most places you will have to wait for a table at least half an hour.We were lucky and the experience began.Started with a Fabada recommended by the owner who said if we didn't like it then we wouldn't pay.He was taking a chance with this offer but this is part of his charácter.Either way it was very good,next the chicken served with a salad that included fresh fruit and chips.Very good with a unique taste.We ordered the White house wine which came in a bottle and had to be uncorked,unsual as most of the wines served in these type of place are served in jugs or half litre caraffes. The famous choclate pudding as mentioned in another post here finished a very good experience of Canarian hospitality and homemade food. One small point a critic Vicente R here rates this place as poor he must have been having a bad day as a critic. The Price of the chicken still remains at 7,50 euros as mentioned in the post of 2012 so can't be bad. Must comment the wine we had came out at 9,50 euros where most charge 7-8 euros for this type of wine,the only negative point of this experience.

Casa Valencia

Reviewed By Zoe M

We found this lovely family owned restaurant (in business since 1947!) based on a recommendation from a Tenerife native. We we not disappointed! The chef, his wife and 3 sons all work hard to make the experience perfect. The paella is delicious and prepared to order. This is a gem of a restaurant that is a little way off the main highway -but still close to La Laguna and Santa Cruz. Worth the search!
