We had previously dined at this restaurant a year ago towards the end of a two week holiday when we sadly had no opportunity to return. We were determined to go back at the first opportunity this year and managed four visits during our latest two week visit to Puerto de la Cruz! On our first visit, although we had... More

One of the main reasons we return to this part of the world is this restaurant, it is simply amazing. Anywhere else they would have a Michelin Star. The ambience, staff and best of all, first class quality and perfectly cooked food. Can't recommend it enough, we told lots of people staying in the Botanico hotel about it, all of... More

One of my favourite restaurants in Puerto. Gabrielle in front of house and Herman in the kitchen make a great combination. The ambience is "country house" and you always feel cosseted. Herman only uses the freshest ingredients - the liver and fish are only available if they satisfy his demanding requirements. You can see everything being freshly cooked and it... More

We again finished our week long vacation with dinner at this restaurant, and were not disappointed. Delicious food and good wine, with the always pleasant attentive eyes of the owners. Word is evidently spreading, so early bookings are recommended. People turned up without reservations and were politely turned away, and our attempt to switch days was not possible as it... More

This family run restaurant was recommended to us and didn't disappointed. We arrived early and we shown to the only unreserved table. Gabrielle took care to see us seated and, in spite of a full restaurant, continued to pay us attention throughout. The menu comprised fresh fish and meat and was cooked to perfection by her husband, Herman. This is... More

We found this restaurant by chance during our last visit to Puerto de la Cruz and as it was a delight we retuned to it readily. This is a small but very restaurant which is managed by a delightful German patron. Her personal treatment of the customers is legendary and one of the restaurant attraction. The other staff are very... More

We ate here as a guest of some very good friends and were delighted with the decor and service. The selection of wines included some lovely local ones and reasonably priced. The meal was excellent and well presented. I would recommend this restaurant for a special evening. Not sure I could afford it too often but it represented excellent value.

The owners of this restaurant make you feel most welcome and it is almost liking eating in your own home with someone else doing the cooking! All the meals we have had here were excellent and we will certainly visit again in May when we next go to Tenerife. You are advised to pre-book your table as it is very... More

First the most important: the lady of the house - Gabrielle - is the soul of this wonderful small restaurant and without her the place wouldn't be the same. Lady Gabrielle is the 'charmer'. The husband will prepare your meal with the help of the lovely assistant of the chef. For the past fifteen years I have never been disappointed... More

We were recommended Tucan as it is close to the hotel we stayed in. Initially I was worried we were too young for their usual clientele, but it was cosy and charming and the menu wasn't over complicated or pretentious. The seafood is fresh and everything was prepared from scratch so nothing came quickly and the relaxed slow pace made... More
