wonderful place: very good (local) food and attentive staff

Went here twice during my last vacation: their tapas is to be recommended :) Second time I had their Uruguayan steak: which was delicious. They have a fine selection of (local) wines which can all be ordered by the glass. If the weather permits: their patio and secret garden is one of the best... read more

Great setting and great food. We were advised to come here from a local shop keeper and I'm really glad we did. Really nice food. We will be back with our friends before the end of our holiday.

La Cantina is a great place to eat when you visit Teguise. The staff was relaxed and friendly and the restaurant looks very nice. They have some very good dishes and veggie options. The wine and beer choices are also very good, with lots of local brands. We definitely had a great time!

This a little gem off the main tourist tracks (bus parties you understand) in Teguise and well worth a visit. A very imaginative and varied menu and I would recommend the combination of tapas (with local rustic chips, of course) washed down with some of the local wine or craft beers. Small, intimate rooms make up this unusual hostelry. Outside... More

La Cantina is a little gem hidden away in Teguise, outside the pub-crawl type tourist routes. During the day they have a wine shop with local products and a "secret garden" where you can have lunch. For dinner, the inside room is cozy with a relaxed and easy going atmosphere. Try the best octopus ever, or the burgers. The hummus... More

My GF and I were residing in Tiagua for one week. Teguise is a 10 minute drive and we ended up having dinner at La Cantina two times. When entering you feel the relaxed atmosphere and interior. Staff was young, enthousiastic and friendly. On both occasions we choose the burger menu. The classic burger was very good and accamompanied by... More

We were recommended this by a couple we know that live on the island and were told that that the food was fantastic...they were not wrong. From the outside, it looks quite small but there are a few possible eating areas, one inside and two outside. We opted for inside on this occasion and were seated at rustic looking tables... More

We sat in the hidden court yard and had lunch. Very relaxing. Quick service and food was displayed and prepared to a high standard and was tasty. A must if you visit require.

Stopped for lunch in La Cantina while visiting Teguise. The restaurant is a find with a lovely inner courtyard and a 'secret garden'. There is a good selection of food for everyone's taste, including children. The prices are reasonable. Good service too.

This restaurant is in a historical building, which gives it a very nice atmosphere. The menu wasn't very long, so there's not very much to choose from. However, the things we tried were quite good, and the price we paid was quite reasonable. The service was also very friendly and professional.
