5 amazing restaurants in the North of Tenerife
Certainly there are many restaurants in the north of Tenerife, and I could not tell if these are the best on the island, but for sure they are the favorites of our Facebook fans for variety, originality and service. Preparing a tasty lunch is easy, but not everyone can claim to be remembered with satisfaction by the customer.
With just one year of life, Pinotxo Gastrolounge is one of those places in the heart of La Laguna that you’ll want to visit for its menu. Here you eat very well, and it is recommended especially for those who enjoy tapas and traditional Spanish dishes, but the most amazing are their lunch menus and the ‘spoon Thursdays’!
Doesn’t exist person in Tenerife who doesn’t know Casa Tomás, and if you are visiting the island, this place is a must. This restaurant is part of the municipal and regional history and is situated at the entrance to El Portezuelo (Tegueste). With a simple atmosphere, the friendly staff proposes the menu with traditional dishes of Canarian cuisine: Beef, chickpeas, escaldón or grilled cheese as well as some specialties of the house. But if you go to Casa Tomas, you’ll do with just one purpose, taste their ribs with potatoes, famous since 1977.
Do you like meat? Can you imagine paying once and eat all you can? If you want something different, El Rodeo is your place. This steakhouse at Los Naranjeros (they have another restaurant in Playa de Las Americas), offers a menu based on the popular ‘rodizios‘ of meat from Brazil and Portugal, preceded by a cold buffet with a wide variety of salads (pasta salad, nuts, mustard, Russian salad …), eggs, potatoes (fried, ‘arrugadas’, ‘a lo pobre‘…) with many sauces and fittings for meat and vegetables. About 10 beef cuts in a long sword, including: veal with bacon, sausages, grilled chicken, marinated tenderloin, loin with sweet and sour sauce, pork and cheese, beef with garlic, beef tenderloin, etc. If you left some space, you should try their desserts and cakes, as the drink they are paid as extra but, believe me, worth it 🙂
I don’t know what you think, but I personally feel that this rediscovery of beer, craft or not, is absolutely a good thing, even beyond the new trends. In a little-known corner between Tacoronte and El Sauzal, Tacoa offers many original recipes from the starters to dessert, but the 6 types of beer brewed by them since 2001 made me fall in love with this place. 100% natural and perfect to accompany their meats or salads.
Mirador de San Pedro
To conclude our journey to the north of Tenerife, we find a place to enjoy a glass of wine, good food and great views. If you want to eat for a reasonable price and good quality in Los Realejos, I have a suggestion for you. Scattered in the island, there are still some picturesque and good places as they were long time ago. The restaurant Mirador de San Pedro has good food and good wine, and the best thing is their great value for money!
