Great alternative local cuisine

Excellent wild boar. Good choice of other alternative dishes such as the rolling stone steak. Didn't cater that well for children. Needs to have plain vegetables and pasta available.

We went to La Clave during our stay over christmas 2015. Having placed an order for 2 tapas, one main dish and a salad, we were explicitly asked if we wanted all the food delivered at the same time, which we did. First the tapas were delivered (my partners choice), then 10 minutes later the salad was delivered, after the... More

We enjoyed a mixed plate of tapas for around 15 euros for two people with shrimp, squid, cheese, potatoes, and shark. Good quality! The pinxto's are also very good and definatly worth a try if you are still hungry. The location is simply perfect though. Very romantic atmosphere at night on a charming little street. Although it may not be... More

I just loved their food. Six tapas portion and all of those were super. The atmosphere is nice. No overselling. More over delivering😁. Best dinner at Tenerife.

I have never eat before so delicious food. We decided to take menu of the week. I was so full and so was my lady after 5 different dishes of starters, main course and dessert that it was hard to wobble uphill back to hotel. It cost only 53€ or something. Next day we came back to try something else... More

Visited due to positive Trip Advisor reviews but what a disappointment..! Ordered 3 tapas only. None of which were as described in the menu. Each item arrived separately with about half an hour between each and was basically different toppings on bread. I'm by no means an impatient diner and didn't complain or make a fuss but if you're looking... More

I had a gorgeous lunch in this place. The waiter was a little pushy to get us in there, but once we looked at the menu and sensed it would be good, he calmed down and was very courteous and professional. Course after course was full of fantastic complimentary tastes, popping my tastebuds. Whilst each course looked quite small, they... More

Me and my son had a fantastic meal here. Gladly made my son a smaller portion if anything on the menu. He opted for chicken and veg which was well cooked and he demolished the lot. I opted for andalusia baby squid to start which was great and the La Clave pork which again was fantastic, which came with salad... More

Had not eaten here on previous trips to Puerto de la Cruz but decided to try it this time. Had the tapas menu and a couple of litres of vino rosada. Each of the tapas dishes were really good. We had a salad with dried fruits and nuts, goat cheese patties, scrambled eggs with chorizo and finished of with the... More
