We spent 4 days in Garachico. The first 2 days we had dinner at some other local restaurants and were not very pleased. But then, once we had discovered El lagar de Julio we knew a very friendly location in the village. The waiter (not Julio) was very, very friendly. Although he couldn't speak any other language but Spanish (his... More

I don't want to write this review because I don't want anyone else to know about it. Try the fried bananas with tomato jam. Super cozy atmosphere, nice "mood lighting," apparently it's a typical "tasca" we were the only tourists there at the time, it was all locals. It's very cozy and at first we couldn't be seated so we... More

My salad was so swamped in olive oil and balsamic that I could not finish it - and I love olive oil and balsamic. My husbands pork was served uncooked in the middle. Draw your own verdict!

Intimate setting with only 6 tables inside. Nice atmosphere and definitely recommend booking as people were waiting outside when we left...on a Saturday night. I enjoyed the banana croquettes in tomato jam and the main of turkey breast with spinach and apricot. My husband ordered the scrambled eggs with prawn and advocado as a starter and the portion was very... More

This is a very small restaurant. Service was not as efficient as we would have expected with so few tables. Food was good and freshly cooked.

Like the crushingly cringeworthy contestant on Masterchef that combines ingredients that have no place sharing the same plate, this restaurant may consider itself experimental but for me, there is a reason I was not born a guinea pig and it is to avoid experiences such as this. After arriving at 7.30pm we were informed that they had run out of... More

This is a very small restaurant which prides itself on unusual but very tasty combinations; the banana croquettas being an excellent example. Although some may find the portions smaller than the usual Tenerifean fare involving lots of Canarian potatoes, a three course meal finished us off good style!! The sweets were as divine as the rest of the meal.

The menu certainly was different from any others in Garachico. The combinations of food are exciting to the palate. The service was excellent. The restaurant is small and intimate with a lovely atmosphere. I would recommend eating here to anybody.

We ate here on our last evening in Garachico but we wished we discovered this restaurant earlier because it is very good. It is a small cosy restaurant with nice service and suprising but delicious food.

We thought this was the best of the restaurants we tried in Garachico. It's small - only six tables - friendly and informal, but service is efficient. The food is more adventurous than in most places on Tenerife. It's a bit mixed, but we thought the rabbit (conejo) was excellent, as was the salad with cheese starter, while the pintada... More
