For our first holiday in the Canary Islands, my boyfriend and I decided to visit Puerto de la Cruz and could not have picked a better place to visit. During our week long stay we wanted to sample different cuisines but found ourselves going back to Los Tulipanes almost every night. The restaurant is located in an area where competition is rife, however Los Tulipanes has nothing to worry about! Run by a lovely husband and wife team (Noel and Tina), the quality of the food is amazing (fresh local ingredients, expertly cooked and served with a smile), the atmosphere is great (even when the restaurant is not full thanks to the staff of neighbouring establishments popping in for a chat and to sample some of the food) and the prices very fair. Both Noel and Tina speak really good English (which is a bonus as my boyfriend is no linguist!) and on more than one occasion we ended up chatting with them until the early hours while sipping great local wines and talking about everything and nothing - it felt like having a great evening with friends. We could not recommend this restaurant enough! If you are in Puerto de la Cruz make sure to visit Los Tulipanes - you will not regret it!
PS - Noel, James listened to your advice and we are now engaged (though the ring is not from Tiffany!)
