Restaurants, Bars, Cafes
The port area:
There is a selection of good restaurants on the promenade around the corner from the apartments which serve fish.
But they also serve other food! So do try the Canarian food (goat’s cheese, papas arrugadas which are the wrinkly potatoes, mojo sauce, etc.) plus salads, meats, etc.
There are also several cafés in the boulevard at the front of the apartments.
In the port area there are four more restaurants – two near the port entrance and two right at the end of the marina - all of which serve fish.
If your looking for haute cuisine, the restaurant El Sitio at the Hotel Hacienda de Abajo, down the cobbled street opposite the church, is outstanding. The Hacienda, the first Emblematic Hotel in the Canaries, is a restored 17th century grand house owned by sugar barons so you can expect wonderful decor.
The Carpe Diem in Calle Nieve just down the cobbled street from the central roundabout is very popular (Open 6 - 10pm, closed Monday and Tuesdays) and also the relatively new Re-Belle situated by the church (open 5 – 10pm, closed Saturday and Sundays).
Bar/Café/Restaurants with sea view and great sunset:
For restaurant-style tapas there is La Tasquita. This is along the well-hidden walkway below the terrace in Avenida Constitucion, (opposite the Pizzeria and Bistro Marmota). Open Tuesdays to Sundays,12.00hrs to 15.00hrs and then 18.30hrs until later. Closed Mondays.
The Pizzeria Venezia along the Avenida Constitucion is where you can eat outside at the dining area opposite. They serve other dishes apart from pizza for example fish lasagne. Open Monday – Friday 19.00hrs until late. Weekends from 12.30 until late.
Bistro La Marmota is also in the Avenida and with sea-view seating. They have ‘creative’ tapas, cocktails and a selection of gins and local beers.
Anyone for cocktails at sunset? I think I just might!
