“Stylish and Friendly”
Reviewed February 19, 2014

We stayed in Callao for a month, and ate at Santa Lucia several times. Although the menu is not huge, everything was tasty and very well cooked. What lifts this restaurant from the ordinary are the stylish touches: the tasteful decor of the restaurant itself, which makes it feel like a real restaurant, rather than a tourist trap; and the nice little extras - the amuse-bouche of homemade soup ,and the 'cafe gourmand', coffee with three tiny desserts - lift it from good value to excellent value. The service was friendly and efficient at all times. I take the point about the wine list made by frankv; however try the house wine before you order anything else - we found it perfectly quaffable.

“Not so good”
Reviewed February 16, 2014 via mobile

ordered the duck confet and duck breast. the duck was burnt and dry, mashed potato was no more than two spoons worth. more pricy than the other resturants in the area. upon commenting the burnt duck they did offer a new one but we had wated over 45 min for the first one. they did offer drinks for free. i cant recomend this place.

We went for their set menu and got tasters of soup, starter, main course, sorbet, desert coffee and glass of wine. It was fantastic value and delicious.

Would highly recommend to anyone coming to Tenerife.

The staff are very friendly, warm and welcoming.

“excellent restaurant at westcoast of Tenerife”
Reviewed December 15, 2013

we stayed 7 days in a small village, Callao Salvaje, at the west coast of Tenerife. One evening we ate at restaurant Santa Lucia, which was recommended to us. The restaurant is owned by French expats, and the cuisine has strong French accents. we ate excellent seafood and duck. everything was top quality. the owners were very friendly to us, it was a highly enjoyable experience. I would recommend the owners to provide a bigger selection of wines. this restaurant must be one of the better ones in Tenerife, we highly recommend it.

“Would not Rate as No 1 Restaurant ”
Reviewed December 3, 2013 via mobile

We had read the reviews and as this rated as the top restaurant in Callao Salvaje , we expected a positive dining experience. The Asian themed prawn starter tasted very much like bottled Chilli Sauce. Main courses were average but not outstanding.The desserts were good and for this element if the meal the rating would be higher , but not an overall excellent. Interior of restaurant good,standard of service and cleanliness high ,but on the food served, it would rate below an average French restaurant.
