We had been looking forward to visiting El Lajar as we had been before and the food was exceptional, but this time around we were so very disappointed!! The restaurant was empty, bar one couple and this was the case for the whole evening right up to 9.30 pm. We ordered the 'vegetable' soup and what arrived tasted more like... More

I visited this restaurant with my husband and our children. The food was superb and the service very friendly and efficient. They are able to speak English but were nicely encouraging about our attempts to speak Spanish too. There is an unusual and delicious choice of starters. My main course was grilled squid, and the others had Cherne and roast... More

We have visited El Lajar quite a few times taking different friends with us. We have never been disappointed. The menu is excellent with a good variety of fish and meat. The wine which is top quality is more than reasonable. The staff are wonderful and are both friendly and helpful. I cannot tell you how good their steaks are..........you... More

Great meal, great service and great atmosphere. Loved their version of ferrero rocher and bananas wrapped in bacon as a starter.

Not much to say in great length: good food, good service, impressive and (probably) excellent choice of wine. (We could only try one...) Clean, neat, attractive environment. Whatever came to our table was quality, prepared with care and professionalism. Young staff both in kitchen and in service, working with dynamism and skill. If anything negative to be said: a somewhat... More

I waited for my second visit to this restaurant before writing this review because I thought it may be too good to be true. But it wasn't. Both meals were of exceptionally high standard. This time I tried the "Ropa vieja" (old clothes) a typical Canarian dish with a difference here - an oxtail off the bone and chick pea... More

We had a superb mesl there last night. Attentive but unobtrusive service, excellent house wine and the food! Husband had goat and chickpea starter; apparently a really authentic canarian dish, while I had smoked salmon and asparagus. Mains were baby squid with picante sauce for him and I ate the best veal chop I have ever had. Good choice of... More

We were the first guests that evening (20:20). As we checked the menu we got some appetizers (bread, cheese, butter). We ordered sangria for all of us - about 10 minutes later the stuff came with the best sangria we ever got (freshly cut fruits - strawberries, pneapple, apple etc) in a very nice red wine. That sangria was really... More

We went based on other reviews and talked a lot about this place during dinner and the day after.....the verdict.....this was overall the BEST restaurant experience ever in Tenerife based on service, quality and price. Professional, warm and friendly service from the moment we arrived to this cosy decorated, clean and nicely airconditioned restaurant. Now, I will admit we went... More
