If you are in Puerto de la Cruz you must eat at this delightful restaurant. Most of the food served is grown in their own garden and is as fresh as you can get it! The starters are interesting, the wheat covered goat cheese with honey is delicious and filling and the beetroot, cheese and leek and mushroom croquettes were... More

I travelled from the west cost in Los gigantes especially for my birthday lunch as it has been difficult to find vegan food this holiday. Well worth the trip. The food was wonderful with excellent service. What good, wholesome food should be. I wish I was in Tenerife long enough to make another trip. Sadly, not this trip

The vegan options at this organic vegetarian restaurant are clearly marked and the staff knowledgeable and friendly. The food was delicious and vegan options include aThai style stir fry with rice and couscous with an almond sauce. Atmosphere was relaxed and prices reasonable.

Pleasant interior, really friendly staff and wonderful vegetarian/organic food. No loud music, no noisy diners - just a lovely atmosphere which everyone seemed to be enjoying. My main course, wine, desert and coffee came to about 25 Euros and it was worth every penny (cent?). Try the special coffee if you have a meal at this restaurant as it has... More

Lovely restaurant with vegan options clearly marked. The staff were really polite and friendly. It’s not somewhere to go if you are just looking for a quick, cheap lunch – in that case try El Limon. However the food at El Mana is good value for money, and you are served bread with a trio of delicious vegan dips to... More

If you love vegan food, and what the heck, even if you're not into vegan food, this is still a restaurant you should check out when in Puerto de la Cruz :-) We had the empanadillas for starters and then I had the vegetable coconutmilk stew, which were both amazing! I like the fact that there's an open kitchen. The... More

Recently discovered this restaurant and had one of the best meals ever! (Huge compliment from someone who normally shies away from the "organic" boasts expecting lentils or something equally unappealing to my taste buds-shame on me!) The food at El Mana was fabulous, as was the organic wine (we had the Frontos, a local white to die for). The service... More

This is a very special restaurant run by very charming people in an up and coming part of town. It is small and delightfully decorated, it has a kitchen which is visible from your table, where you can see your dishes being prepared by a very creative team. The menu although fairly small is refreshingly original,the wine list has some... More

I found this place by chance just walking by. It offers a nice selection of tasty dishes! You can taste the freshness and quality of the ingredients! One of the best choices in Puerto de la Cruz.
