A guide to the best restaurants in Playa De Las Americas

Playa de las Americas is known for its beautiful scenery and incredible beaches – and it’s worth mentioning that the food is top-class too. With everything from English breakfasts to luxurious steak dinners, here are 10 of the best meals you can enjoy on your Tenerife holiday.

Delicious cocktails at Beach Bar Chunga Chunga

Overlooking the ocean, Beach Bar Chunga Chunga has some of the most spectacular views on offer. The all-round dining experience will be what makes you a regular, with the attentive and friendly staff, and roster of cocktails and nibbles. There’s a reason it’s one of the most popular dining experiences in Playa de las Americas. Don’t save it for the last night, as you’ll almost certainly want to go more than once.

Fresh sushi at Imperial Tai-Pan

Let’s hope you brought your appetite. There’s a great buffet option at Imperial Tai-Pan that lets you sample a variety of fantastic Chinese and Japanese food. Make sure you try the creamy California Sushi. The chef may stop by to show you a few tricks while cooking too, making this one of the most fun dining experiences you’ll find during holidays in Tenerife.

Succulent steak at Empire Modern British Restaurant and Steak House

‘The best I’ve ever had’ is a tall statement, but don’t be surprised if you end up saying it at Empire. Their juicy and massive T-bone steaks are cooked to perfection, and you’ll find it hard to order something that doesn’t taste exceptional. As a little tip from us, make sure you save room for the incredible bread and butter pudding.

Exceptional flavours at Thai Botanico

One of the finest local restaurants, located just by the beautiful fountains of Avenue de las Americas. Astonishing Thai food in a beautiful setting. The Coriander and Garlic Stir Fry could earn it a place on this list on its own.

Prime cuts at Tribu

If you’re a meat eater then come to Tribu for a juicy steak cooked fresh for you on a lavic stone. You’ll reconsider how good you thought steak could be. If you fancy something different then Tribu has a creative menu of Italian favourites, all of which are equally mouth-watering.

Mega breakfasts at Surfers Bar

Don’t worry, surfing isn’t required. What is required is trying the Surfers Bar breakfast. For your money, you’ll struggle to find a better way to start the day on Playa de las Americas. It’s a great and reasonable place for evening drinks too.

Fresh seafood at Friends Lounge Bar & Restaurant

Just a few steps away from the beach sits a restaurant offering fantastic seafood, tapas, and an extensive menu for a reasonable price. The pork medallions in particular are worth the trip. What’s more, the staff are so kind and attentive that they might even start to feel like friends.

Curry time at Krishna 2 Tandoori

Tucked away at the top of the shopping complex, there’s no better curry in Playa de las Americas. The massive portions shouldn’t be a problem if you’re serious about mind-blowing flavours. Your first bite of their chicken pakora will ready your tastebuds for a full Indian restaurant experience. And you might just find yourself coming back for seconds.

Light lunches at Menta and Limon

A small local cafe, offering everything you could want for a quick stop. Fresh sandwiches, juicy burgers, or genuine local tapas. Whether it’s for a coffee break or simple meal, you might find yourself staying on for a while in one of the most charming and friendly cafes Playa de las Americas has to offer.

A taste of home at Scampis Tenerife Fish and Chips

Scampis has got you covered if you’re looking for a familiar bite to eat. Proper chips, thin and crispy batter, and mushy peas just like the UK’s finest. Try the haddock for one of the best fish and chip experiences you can have. The only downside is that the chip shop back home may taste a bit plain after your meal at Scampis.
