If you look for a taste of local food , this is the place to go. DO not miss their specialties in cheeses.

If you want to try canarian food, this is the place! Nice atmosphere, amazing staff (let them advice you, they are pretty good at understanding customers' needs) and great quality/price. The owner produces cheese and you can try it here, amazing!! If you go there during weekends, it's better to reserve a table.

The food was of average quality and different in that the choice of meat was limited with goat and rabbit on the menu, no beef steak. The goat was challenging, a plate of bones with a dark coloured sauce. Unedible.

Went here with friends because the views from the terrace are great. El Medano is known as the windy town so you'll be in for a treat if you like watching the local kite surfers. The tapas was tasty and the service was ok. It's a nice place to go if you want to get out of the hustle and... More

Rather unprepossessing from the outside but don't be put off if you want real canarian fare and friendly service in the company of locals. This was our second visit in 6 months and I'm very much looking forward to our third!

If you want real Canarian food, this is one of the best places in Tenerife to find it. I've never had a dish I didn't like, and for the price you can't get better. The staff are very friendly and helpful.

This is a very good tapas restaurant with local specialities. We had "Churros de Pedscado" and they were the best fish fingers we ever had! "Pimentoas Piquillo" was as well very delicious. Only thing i would not recommend are the chips, but hey: "Papas Arrugas" with Mojo are much better anyway! We tried the Gofio with honey and cheese -... More
