Very special place

Have been visiting the Regulo for at least 18 years. Such a magnificent building ( even after its fire damage of 5-6 years ago). We always choose to sit in the grand room at the top of the restaurant. It really is typically Tenerife, lots of dark wood and heavy curtains. We always receive a really... read more

It's one of the best places to in Puerto Cruz if you want something in gourmet taste. Dishes are spanish, but professionally made, while at most places at Puerto Cruz they offer something like grandma receipts. The building itself is worth to see - an old colonial house with internal patio. Service is excellent.

We have visited Regulo almost over ten times during last 10 years nearly yearly and this restaurant is allways good, high professional and polite. Food is fine, service excellent and atmosthere very sophisticated; maybe in that level best in town. Maybe we would need a bit new and impressive foodportions after these many years.La carta seems to be quite same... More

You have to visit at least once during a holiday. Well organised service, good food and pleasant environment. The old house is beautiful and the rooms have different kind of furniture and paintings and also dinner service. The staff is friendly and professional.

Our annual holiday to Tenerife would not be complete without a visit to The Regulo. Always Excellent food and very friendly and professional,service plus the charm of the restaurant is special. Whilst we enjoy many other restaurants on this island, the Regulo never dissapoints.

The food was very nice. Really good fish and fair wines. However the atmosphere is not so nice due to mainly old customers. If you don't mind it s worth a visit

We have visited this restaurant many times over the years. I love the old Canarian Building and the service is friendly. But the food is disappointing. There are now many restaurants in this area which are excellent and sadly I feel that Regulo has not moved with the times.

The best restaurant I found in Puerto de la Cruz during my week's stay, very friendly & efficient service and excellent food. Particularly liked that when I asked for a 10-15 minute gap between courses, that is just what happened. Steak cooked exactly as requested. I had two dinners here, both times starting with garlic prawns. The first time I... More

A very good place to eat, if you are looking for something a bit more upscale - but not too posh. The building is really fantastic and worth a look, the food is very good, but not perfect, and the service was also very good. A very worthwhile experience!

Not the typical patio dining all over the rest of the city, feels like you are coming into their house. The service was not as crisp as some of the other places in town, though the lamb shoulder was worth it. Have an appetite if you order it
