Trying to tell other people what to like and what to dislike, is a
difficult thing to do. So I won't.
But what I can do, is to tell a little about how
to get some food, while you
are down here in the Canary Islands.
Of course, there are restaurants in Puerto del Carmen, and everywhere
on the island. Big resaturants and small ones. Good ones and not-so-good
We always have at least one evening out at the Bar Playa, located
just outside the
diving beach, north of the harbour in Puerto del Carmen. They have
fish there. May be they made an everlasting impression to us during
our first visit there.
We tried in spanish (?) to ask what kind of fish they had to offer,
and off we
went - out into the kitchen, and they showed us just about everything,
even the cuttle-fish and squids.
Another place we just have to visit every time,
is the small beach-restaurant just in
the center of town, down at the beach, under the palmtrees. A lovely
with a very good 'Ensalada Especial'. The name of the place?
'El Candil'. Of course, they have delicious dinners, too.
We love Peking-Duck, so a third visit often goes
to a Chinese
Restaurant. There are several here, and difficult to tell you
which one you prefer. Also as the main road, where they
are all situated, are too long to walk up and down before dinner.....
On our last trip, we went by car southwards, and
we sighted (not too easy - you'll have to ask) a beautiful old place,
A genuine Restaurante Canario. A very nice place to stop, and a lot
I must not forget to tell you about the little,
but for us worthful, filipino take-away shop,
right in the middle of the old main street, Reine Sofia. For 600 Ptas
you can take away more than necessary for two old people, at least
cook some rice or have some bread available. Chicken, paella and several
other delicious mixtures. The menu is long, and so are the list of
times we have visited this place, after coming back from a whole day
down south hunting for lonely beaches......

However, as mentioned before, to tell you where
you should eat - out or 'at home' -
in a big fine restaurant - or in the english one promising you dinner
just like the one mum made for you - or a hamburger in a small café
is totally up to yourself to decide.
