Best place in south Tenerife

Authentic paella in Tenerife. The spirit and flavour of the best rices from Spain. For us this place is a must every time we visit the island and we are always suprised with a new dish. This time we ordered raw tuna cubes, and crab carpaccio as starters, followed by the duck and mushrooms rice for... read more

This restaurant was recommended by one of the staff at the Costa Adeje Gran and we were not disappointed. The location is well away from the tourist areas and indeed the signage and its location on the ground floor of a non-descript block would not have got us through the door without the recommendation. But if you want good quality... More

A pretty much faultless meal – excellent food, at a reasonable price and impeccable service – attentive without being overly fawning or with false friendliness. There was excellent bread which went well with both starters. Cream of vegetable soup was well rounded with no particular dominance of any one veg. On the other plate, red peppers had been roasted to... More

There is no doubt why this restaurant has Michelin recommendation. We randomly came there because one local old gentlemen recommended this place. It was not in old town, not in popular place, there were mostly locals... but the food, wine and service were terrific. We had black sepia with rice..... and it was the best rice experience ever in my... More

The restaurant was recommended by the waiter at our hotel Iberostar Anthelia, the food was amazing the iberico ham was delicious and so was the scallops and Octopus we had to start. We then delved into our seafood Paella which was out of this world....The food here is amazing! The service is fine, but can seem a little unfriendly. Don't... More

I have to say that the food, desert and coffee where good. We had the paella with lobster. Service was pretty slow and lacking of atention. We asked for recommendation and the waiter kept quiet (so no ideas for meal or wine). The bill was higher than expected but the tiramisu helped to let it go !

We went to have a paella and a restaurant speciality because we've seen on their website that they are connected with the Restaurant La Kocina witch we like a lot. The food is boring and overpriced. The waiters were arrogant and made us feel unwanted there. Maybe because they know that foreigners who speak English use trip advisor.

Myself and my wife went here last night after being told the food was very good, unfortunately we didn't get to try it, the front of house was the rudest we've ever come across. When we first arrived we asked if we could have a drink and just look at the menu, what appeared to be the main waiter, could... More
