“if food and service are important to you”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

you must visit this restaurant , Alice the co owner / waitress is very attentive and knowledgeable , we went a couple of times and was impressed by the quality of food served .
a particular treat was when we just allowed the chef to " cook what he wanted " we were not disappointed it was superb.
Yes venue is small and outlook could be better but if the food and service is the main consideration then you must give it a try

“First Love....Oh my God”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

Best place in Tenerife.
The two young owners are such nice and genuine people.
We love the pasta and the hot chocolate souffle' is to die for.
Give it a go!

“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

You really do have to make time in your holiday to visit First Love. The food and staff are just wonderful! We ended up there twice in 7 days!
As other reviews mention, the carbonara is amazing and the rare beef tagliata is one of the best beef dishes I have had.
All in all, a great little place and well worth tracking it down!
