One of the best restaurants in Puerto de la Cruz. The bearnaise sauce is very tasteful. The service is helpful and friendly. For sure I will come back.

We had dinner here 3 times on our recent visit to Puerto de la Cruz. The restaurant is just off the Plaza de Charco in the centre of town and has become our new favourite place to eat. The staff are so pleasant and attentive to your requirements and the food is excellent. Will definitely return on our next visit... More

This is a great little restaurant located off the main plaza down one of the side streets. A very comprehensive menu with large portions, served very hot and with a friendly smile. Great value for money.

Locally known as The Igloo (you'll see when you step inside). Good food well above expectation. Steaks melt in the mouth, and the sole café de Paris is excellent and ample. Nice salads, and everything comes from the tiniest of kitchens. However, the kitchen in being moved to another area in the premises, and I am told that they are... More

Walking through the street of restaurants came across the El Padrino and what a lovely place it was, the food was excellent and the staff very friendly, would recommend this restaurant to anyone who likes good food and was not too expensive.
