The hotel restaurant buffet is first class with a varying menu throughout the week. The attached gourmet restaurant is under frequented which is a shame as the food is excellent, the service of top quality and the views to dream of. The menu is local and limited and this improves the quality of the individual dishes; book and provide yourself... More

We had an excellent meal at this fine dining restaurant in the Hotel Vincci la Plantacion. Service was also very good, the staff were most accommodating for our two small children, and they were able to choose their desserts from the hotel buffet menu rather than the more formal fine dining menu.

On our first night in Tenerife we decided to eat at the hotel restaurant rather than the buffet. The restaurant had about 8 other covers when we arrived. We were sat with a splendid view over Las Americas and were brought a muse bouche and bread very swiftly. Whilst deciding what to eat the table next to us complained that... More

One of the best restaurants we've visited recently. The veal was so soft that no knife was needed. Also starters and dessert were excellent. Price of the wine was very competitive. Only interior could be more cozy.

Five course taster menu was excellent. The wine menu was varied and not overly priced. Fabulous service and fantastic views over the sea.

My honest opinion of this restaurant is it needs to change its direction due to the lack of bookings. The service was great and the food was nice, but just not to our liking. We had the entire restaurant to ourselves until leaving another couple arrived and the waiter said he had no other bookings. It's in a great location... More

The hotel has three evening restaurants and we tried all of them as we stayed at La Plantacion. This is definitely not to be confused with the main restaurant, which serves on a buffet basis. This one has fewest tables and is the most ambitious & formal of all of them. For a hotel with good views, the restaurant has... More

Fabulous food! Real quality gourmet food with amazing service. We were bowled over. We ate in here twice during our stay. The first time we were the only 2 people eating in the restaurant but it didn't matter that the rest of it was empty. We had a great view over the bay and the service was attentive without being...

We had a voucher for this Tasting menu meal but it would have been worth it if we had had to pay as we had planned. Starting at 19:15 the meal lasted over 2 hours with courses including, sparkling wine, savoury mango with mussel, Gazpacho, local smoked cheeses, cod, pork, local deserts (excellent), coffee. The view was excellent, the service... More
