“HIghly recommended”
Reviewed August 13, 2014

We chose this restaurant as it seemed to offer a variety of local dishes and was in a side street away from the tourist areas. The waiter was helpful. Although our Spanish is sufficient to cope with menu basics, an English menu was available. we chose 3 local seafood plates.
Food was delicious, service efficient and friendly.
Like every other Spanish restaurant you have to chose your location carefully to avoid smokers, but this is the only drawback and, as I say, it is common to every other restaurant with outdoor seating. The climate in Tfe is perfect for an evening meal outside.
Highly recommended

“Excellent choice in Santa Cruz”
Reviewed May 18, 2014

We had read that the tapas portions were large so the first night we ate here we were careful in what we ordered as we are not big eaters. I had the Veal Carpaccio with cured sheeps' cheese and my wife chose the Smoked Salmon Salad. Both were really well prepared and enjoyable and the desserts were a delight. The second night we were offered paella which although not a local dish was one of the best we had ever eaten. Both nights we sat at a pavement table and watched the world go by as we ate. Returning in November to Santa Cruz and will be sure to eat at Tasca El Callejon then.
