Seven of us visited this restaurant for a celebratory meal before we left for frozen Scotland. We shared starters of Queso de Cabra with tomatoes and onions, Prawns in Parmesan sauce and Tuna Carpacio. Main courses comprised Risotto with Chanterelles, Shark with Saffron Sauce, Iberican Pork with Figs, vegetarian Pasta and Iberican Pork with Chanterelles. Sweets were home made ice... More

This restaurant is very small, so the atmosphere is warm, the owner is a couple dedicated to make good food, here we feel a family food, no sophisticate decorations, simple tables but very tasty food. We were very satisfied. Service was a bit slow, but the restaurant was full and it looks like they have no personal. As the restaurant... More

La Carta is one of the best restaurants in Puerto. We have been visiting a lot during all our visits in Puerto. Most of them once and never more. In la Carta you will get good cooked meat as well as fish and vegetarian food. Their rabbitsause is exellent. We come at least twice a week to enjoy their kitchen.... More

I had very tender Iberico pork with caramelised apple and delicious parsley potatoes, my partner had tuna with chilli sauce and potatoes. Dessert was just as good, and the whole lot was reasonably priced. A bit different from the standard tourist menus and and not in the heart of the usual holidaymaker areas, but not hard to find - Puerto... More

This restaurant deserved to be higher on the list. I think, that its on top five in Puerto de la Cruz restaurants. Me and wife visited La Carta 9th january. Starters were fine, bread before it was also tasting with two special butters. We both took tournedos (with different sauces) and both were very tasting and decoratively composited. And after...

This restaurant does not deserve to be on the list so high. We were five people here on 28th Dec 2014 The food was tasteless, two of us found a hair in food and restaurant tried to cheat us when we paid the bill. They tried to charge three steak instead of four, a bottle of wine attempted to charge... More

Cornelia E, Propietario at Restaurante La Carta, responded to this review

We can live with a negative review. What we cannot live with is to be accused of cheating and claims that our food did not taste good. Apparently on two plates strands of hair were found, though the plates were returned clean to the kitchen. The fact that I had made a mistake on the invoice was certainly not on... More

We ate there two times including Christmas Eve dinner which was set menu for 47 euros. Both times the food was very good. Service was excellent and very friendly.

we had our Chrstmas dinner here. it was fine, even if heavily overpriced. but we escaped as soon as possible, as the small place was crowded with loud Germans... not really the festive setting we thought to find there.

Didn't realize this restaurant had such a high rating - though it was on our recommended list - but having dined there twice on a recent holiday we can easily see why. (Another telling clue is the good trade enjoyed despite being not the easiest place to find in Puerto.) Really excellent food and table-service combined with pleasant ambiance ...... More

This is a restaurant with high class food and moderate prices. The staff speaks several languages and is highly interested in your well being. They translate the menu into eight languages and it feels like customer service and not a tourist trap. Unfortunately I found this gem on my last night. Otherwise I would have been there every day.
