Good canarian food in a authentic canarian house

Very good traditional/modern canarian food in a traditional canarian building in the historic center of the city. Friendly atmosphere.

The restaurant was well patronised by people who appeared to be locals. The place was very busy although we weren't rushed. The servers had no time for frills. In fact our table gave us a good view of the kitchen and when they weren't serving food they were helping to prepare it. The food quality was ok but not great.... More

Your mind might not be blown away by exclusivity or the food itself, but the whole experience is excellent. The restaurant is situated in a small street, in a beautiful old building. The dishes offered are typical, therefore go there for the fish, papas arrugadas and cheese. I have been on couple of occasions, always with a bigger group and... More

Having been recommended this restaurant previously, we decided to give it a try on our next visit to the capital. It is situated in the old part of the city very close to the old theatre. We went at lunchtime to book for that evening. The place was buzzing and very busy - always a good sign. On our arrival... More

This is not our first visit to Tenerife. We have had typical Canarian food before, but La Hierbita stands out. Great dishes to try are the gambas al ajillo (shrimp in hot oil with garlic) and the secreto iberico (very tasty porc). They also have great mojos (Canarian sauces) to go with bread or papas arrugadas (salty wrinkled potatoes). We... More

This restaurant should be a "must" when visiting Santa Cruz de Tenerife. Great location. I recommend you to make reservations, if possible. Canary Islands style food served there is delicious and prices are average. The eggplant with the palm honey is...like being in heaven. Staff very nice and always very helpful.

In a historical house in the old town of Santa Cruz - and quite hidden - can be found this atmospheric restaurant. As the place advertises itself, food gets served here since 1893. The actual owners and staff all seem quite young. To not alter the character of the building, all the different rooms of various sizes have been kept... More

We visited La Hierbita on Monday 8th December in the company of two people who are fairly regular customers. Our expectations were high as we had listened to descriptions of the unique location and the great food we could expect. Disappointment reigned from the moment we arrived. Although we had a booking it was half-an-hour before we were seated -... More

When entering the restaurant La Hierbita, one can easily imagine entering the welcoming atmosphere of a friend's home. The restaurant is located in the port region near Plaza de Espana and is a former residence, the dining tables and chairs disbursed as you might see them in different rooms of the house. The restaurant serves well prepared fresh fish dishes... More
