“Very, very good!”
Reviewed February 6, 2012

The Casa Pache is lovely family-run small restaurant situated within an attractive, peaceful alleyway, 150m from the bustling Plaza del Charco in Puerto de la Cruz.

It is not "classy" food but it is all home made, wholesome, fresh and very tasty. The menu is not extensive but it is refreshingly different from the many restaurants in town that have the same hundred or so options to choose from.

There are 4 tables outside and a few more within a couple of small very attractive rooms inside. It is much more like someones house than a fancy restaurant. Service is friendly and attentive.

We shared a baked cheese starter, had chicken in sauce and lamb in sauce with superb Canarian potatoes for main courses and shared a fantastic Tiramisu for dessert. We also had a half litre of pleasantly fruity house wine then coffee.

The bill of just over €24 represented remarkably good value with the wine at €3 and dessert at €2.50 in particular feeling like a steal.

If you are looking for authentic home-cooked Canarian cuisine in pleasant surroundings with faultless service and at a great price then seek out the Casa Pache!

“Simple home cooked food at an excellent price”
Reviewed January 21, 2012

I think this was probably authentic Canarian home cooking. The dishes were simple, but delicious. The prices are amazing - 5 to 7 Euros for a main course.

“True authentic canary islands home made food for the best value”
Reviewed November 26, 2011

We stayed in the town for a week and went back for dinner twice after discovering this place. Located on a small road with 'arboles', it has a really friendly small family atmosphere, serving food any way you like as if it was cooked by your mum! The cook even made a special meal which was off season just for us to taste it. We felt part of the small family along with the other regulars there. Cheapest meals of the whole week, best location, best staff and best food.

“Superb....quite superb”
Reviewed November 6, 2011

The previous reviews express the delight of finding this local restaurant down a side-street.

I had noticed the good reviews before I went to PDLC but didn't chance across it on our evening walks. Then one particular evening while approaching Plaza Charco from a side-street, I noticed a flood-lit alley with nice shrubs and plants in large pots. Being the curious type I ventured to look, and to my delight found the restaurant!

Three things stand out for me:

- the quality of the tapas offered
- the friendliness of the young waitress
- the prices which are excellent

I noticed a menu del dia (Primero/Segundo/Drink and bread, all offered for €6.50. I would have loved to have tried it.

I'm already looking forward to our next visit in 2012.

“What A Delight!”
Reviewed September 15, 2011

This Restaurant is a must if you are visiting Puerto de la Cruz.Hidden away in a narrow alleyway decorated with shrubs you would be forgiven for thinking you had wandered into Paradise.For a blissful hour the rest of the world is forgotten as tthe friendly staff produce first class dishes and treat you as if you were a long lost and valued relative.The bill is produced and you feel they have short-changed themselves by at least 15 euro.My advice would be to trust the staff ,take their advice and you will be back.If you get tastier and more wholesome food anywhere please let me know!!
