My friends and I were SO EXCITED to try this place, however,we left beyond disappointed. Upon arrival we were greeted by a lovely young man who seated us and took our order in a prompt manner. Excited to try something Vege/GF friendly, we ordered an...array of dishes from the ample menu. Keeping in mind that we were the only clients present, it took an hour before we were served our first dishes, a gazpacho, chips, and some pakoras and were told the rest of our food would be served briefly. The food was delicious and we finished it quickly, waiting eagerly for the rest to be served. It took nigh on another hour before we lost our patience and asked for our food to go as we had an appointment to make and were now cutting it short with the time. Eventually it got to the point where we had to ask for the food to be left seeing as we had to go urgently. We said would pay just for the food we had eaten. Suddenly, we were greeted by the frankly apathetic server who throughout our 2 hour long wait had not offered even the slightest apology. He told us that our food was now ready if we wanted, though we had just cancelled it. We made a fair complaint about the long wait and were hardly given even a simple disculpa. The attitude was frankly appaling. I myself tend to be particularly patient with these kinds of things, having worked in food for years and I understand that things happen in the day to day of an establishment, needless to mention the current social climate we find ourselves in, even a lame ass excuse and a sorry would have sufficed in appeasing us, but nada. When we went to pay we were told by the server that we could take our prepared dishes away with us without paying as compensation, a clearly disgruntled chef ran up and grabbed the food and told us pretty much to pay or bugger off. I mean we would never have asked for any form of appeasement or discount but it was them that extended the offer not us to then rudely make it out as if it were our issue, not theirs. I find myself at odds with how I feel about the experience as Govinda's is usually one to be relished, seamless service, a wholesome atmosphere, and most importantly incredible food! I have frequented many similar Govinda's around the world, Dublin & Barcelona for example, and have never in my life been met with such an unsatisfactory experience. I just hope this was a once off really, truly disappointed.More

Confession: I’m a meat eater who needed a healthy break from all of the naughty holiday food. The buffet wasn’t available as shown in the trip advisor picture, but the very friendly host cooked me a flavoursome meal from fresh. Just what I needed! Moderate...wait time due to the fresh cooking, but good value🙂More

Located 1 floor below ground level, take stairs down located on corner of El Cedro and from there you will probably smell the inscenses and then the Govindas logo! Our experience from start to finish was brilliant. We were guided through the menu items in...the buffet, went for small buffet with bottlemless water or juice. So glad we found this little gem as we only came to visit the mandir. I have been going to Govindas in Central London since I was a kid so to have that peaceful place I could have a decent 100% vegetarian meal made our day! Hari bolMore

Highly recommended. One of very few exclusively vegan/vegetarian restaurants in South Tenerife. Delicious flavours and very friendly staff. I would definitely visit again and again and again! A place not to be overlooked even if you’re not vegan/vegetarian but just looking for tasty wholesome food....Note it is Located just off the main road. Look out for the signs. Down some steps near the swimming pool.More
