Los Cristianos gives you a real flavour of what to expect from holidays in Tenerife in general. You can pretty much find anything you’re looking for here – whether that’s Canarian, British or Italian cuisine, Los Cristianos’ restaurants can definitely accommodate your appetite.
A taste of the sea at Cofradia de Pescadores
Cofradia de Pescadores serves up the freshest bacalou (cod), dorada (sea bream), calamari, prawns and squid. You can even look down on the harbour and the moored fishing boats as you eat your meal. Simple, delicious flavours will get those taste buds tantalised.
British grub at Oliver's with a Twist
If you’re craving a taste of home on your cheap break to Tenerife, albeit with a twist, Oliver’s will not disappoint. The chefs serve up all your traditional favourites such as gourmet fish and chips – beautifully presented in printed paper – and pie of the day. It’s not just traditional cuisine that’s served here though – the goat’s cheese tart with caramelised onion is a yummy option for your starter.
A slice of Italy at Pizze Social Club
If you think you’re the master of defeating huge portions, then you haven’t been to Pizze Social Club yet. Try the calzone if you’re absolutely starving – it’s a force to be reckoned with! If your eyes are bigger than your stomach then the restaurant offers takeaway boxes so you won’t feel guilty about your leftovers.
Authentic Spanish cuisine at The Willows
The Willows serves up the region’s finest cheeses, hams, tortillas and prawns, a selection that’s great for sharing. If you’re not sure what to choose, the tapas tasting menu is large, varied and available for a reasonable price. Sangria and local wines can be enjoyed here in an informal, convivial Spanish setting.
A special occasion meal at Casa Tagoro
Tagoro’s a good option if you want to celebrate a birthday or anniversary in style. They serve up seafood caught that day — the cherne (wreckfish) is worth a try if you’re feeling adventurous. The shrimps and tartare de atun (tuna steak) are exquisite if you love your fish dishes. They cater for veggies too – the vegetable pakora is delicious.
Intimate settings at La Kanela
As you walk past, you may mistake La Kanela for a café. But don’t let this put you off, inside you’ll discover top-class paella and tapas. As you walk past, you may mistake La Kanela for a café. But don’t let this put you off, inside you’ll discover top-class paella and tapas.
Something different at The New Yorker
When you think of New York City, you think BIG and the New Yorker restaurant is no exception — think vast portions and bold surroundings. The New York themed décor makes you feel as though you’re in the Big Apple itself. The New York burger is a great option if you’re feeling peckish. The restaurant also hosts wine tasting evenings where you can sample a local tipple and learn more about what you’re drinking.
French vs Spanish at Le Bistro
Le Bistro serves up a fusion of French and Spanish fare, which you can enjoy while taking in the beautiful views that surround the restaurant. The sea bream and sea bass are definitely worth a try if you fancy fresh fish, although the garlic prawns, salmon tagliatelle and fillet steak are delicious too. Try the strawberry soup for dessert – it’s guaranteed to satisfy those sweet cravings.
An authentic curry at Sher y Punjab
Sher y Punjab is an Indian restaurant with a difference. Go for the fish tikka to start – a good dish to share between two. The freshest ingredients and range of spices the chefs use here make for authentic and tasty meals. If you like your dinner hot then the lamb karahi vindaloo is not to be missed.
A classic fry up at RnB's Family Bar
Located slap-bang in the middle of the Los Cristianos strip, RnB’s serves fry-ups that are guaranteed to set you up for the day ahead. If you’re missing a proper English cuppa, RnB’s is the place to go. Sunday roasts also provide a taste of home if you’re missing the classic end to your weekend.
