This is one of the best restaurants on the Island part of the Venture group. They are all good. The menu is not massive and this is because they excel in what they do offer. Having said that there is somthing for everyone .the service...is impeccable as is the place itself . I had praws with guacamole on toast. They were sweet and delicious. Followed by beef bourguignon. Melt in the mouth. My other half had black pudding with poached egg. Also delicious. Then he has pork cheeks. Not my cup of tea but the meat was just so tender and fabulous. I was very much looking forward to "strawberry baked alaska" but sadly it was on the menu. The chef special was apple pie with vanilla ice cream. The apples were sweet and thinly sliced but sorry to the pastry was wet and soggy. Ice cream had something else running through it, not just vanilla so that was a disappointment. But a wonderful meal. Can't wait to go back. The staff are very attentive and helpful.More

Good ambiance, lacks execution. Steak was served fully rare instead of medium rare and as opposed to comping or providing a new steak, they re-cooked pieces of my original steak which still came out pretty rare. We asked for water and never received, nor did...our original server return to the table until the end to accept payment. Cocktails ordered were bad.More

We visited a number of the Venture restaurants while on holiday, they were all good in there own way but this restaurant in our opinion was by far the best.The food is excellent but the staff from when you enter and met by the lovely...young lady who shows you to your table to the professional staff who are more than welcoming. Raj and Sofia are helpful and bubbly characters without being intrusive. Would recommend this to anyone who enjoys good food and service with a smile. Can’t wait to return.More

Excellent kitchen, wonderful wines and Top Service. We came back a second time! The food was fantastic, a wonderful combination of ingredients be it fish or meat. The restaurant manager had excellent proposals for Spanish wines and offered to open a bottle that we could...return if we wouldn‘t like it. The service was genuine and excellent, too.More

Lovely food, great selection and delicious steak. We visited for our honeymoon last year and then 1st wedding anniversary this year and everything was delicious, the steak tartare made table side was a highlight. Can’t wait to come back next year!

Fantastic! We walked along the coast from Costa Adeje to La Caleta and what a treat. I had see this restaurant on Trip advisor and we went for a leisurely lunch. This restaurant is busy in the evening so you would have to book. We...were seated by Raj and asked we have a break between courses and no rush. Not a problem. Offered a drink and browsed the menu. 3 courses later and a lovely bottle of wine we strolled back. Perfect afternoon. We also took advantage of their Bistro lunch menu, a bargain at €21.50 on our last day. Couldn’t resist one last visit. Raj recognised us and again we had the most delicious food and perfect service. Highly recommend and would go back just so we could visit here again! Ps, the New York cheesecake and baileys foam is to die for!More

We visited Lagarto with so much anticipation of a memorable experience. Unfortunately this was not the case. What started out as a promising evening soon turned out to be the absolute opposite. The staff were so professional and friendly as we were shown to our...table, menus preferred and drinks and food ordered. However once our starter was finished we waited almost forty minutes for our mains to arrive. We then had to ask for our plates to be cleared after what seemed like an age. Subsequently we were obliged to request dessert menus and waited an unacceptable length of time for these and our digestifs to come while waiting staff seemed to congregate at the bar. The food was good but not the exceptional fare that we were expecting. Perhaps as we were sitting on the terrace we were out of sight, out of mind. The staff were all so lovely but there is a problem with how the organisation is run. We spent three hours at Lagarto and came away deflated and disappointed.More

Walked in without Booking and were given a table without hesitation. Service was immaculate. Food was exceptional. This is by far one of the best restaurants I’ve been to in a long while. Hospitality is done right here. We will be returning before we leave...Tenerife! Congratulations to everyone, we loved it!More

Fabulous restaurant, fabulous good, fabulous staff. We last visited here on holiday in 2019 and decided to return whilst holidaying here again, we were not disappointed, the steak tartare is made in front of you and is amazing. I especially liked the tuna taraki and...my husband loved the mussels. We did not have room for desserts. Great restaurant.reasonable price considering the quality.More
