Found this place walking from my accommodation at Elle's Guesthouse - what a find! The coffee was so good I had to have two... that is not helpful for weight reduction but what do you do when it is good :) The food is not only reasonable in cost but also great. And the kind service, streetside tables, and overal... More

The food is great, the staff are friendly and they know their beers. What more can you ask for? It's a hidden gem, tucked away at New Farm. If this was place was in a more highly trafficked area it'd be one of the most popular & well known spots in the city. In saying that, there's usually a nice... More

Recently had a 30th on a lovely Winter's afternoon. Typically appears busy whenever I drive by and today was no exception. There's a dedicated section at one end of the premises which offered sufficient privacy. The setup offered enough seating and a good size for my 35 guests. Officially they can cater for up to 50 guests. Food was great,... More

We were glad we didn't take notice of the last review about Bitter Suite's breakfast. The service and menu for Sunday breakfast were excellent! The GF quinoa porridge with warm coconut milk was a dreamy breakfast for a jaded coeliac used to more ordinary GF breakfast offerings in other restaurants and cafes. We will certainly return. Well done Bitter Suite... More

Visited Bitter Suite a number of times for dinner and lunch and always left with a positive experience. However, we decided to go for breakfast on Sunday and made a booking. We sat down and were given time to peruse the menu, the waitress finally arrived and we ordered tea and asked could we order our food as well but... More

Bitter Suite is a great place for beer. it has a good outdoor area that is very pleasant to sit in and heaters in winter. the menu is interesting and I have mixed reactions when I take people there. The pluses are - well sourced ingredients and cooked food a lot made in their own kitchen. They have a vegan... More

This place has the best range of beer I can find in Teneriffe. It has a wonderful atmosphere and helpful staff. The coffee is medium blend and smooth. The food is a little below expectations. But they did let me sit there for a couple of hours whilst I was drawing. :)

We headed to Bitter Suite for Sunday lunch but we're very underwhelmed by the lunch menu. It was almost a combination of a breakfast menu and lunch menu... offering eggs Benedict and then a pork belly sandwich. Just odd. We left before ordering...

We were going to see Judith Lucy at the Powerhouse and were under time pressure, The waiter was very efficient and attentive and asked what time our show went off to ensure we had adequate time to eat our meal and walk the half kilometre to the Powerhouse. Food was good and one main was for vegan. As a vegetarian... More
