Fantastic Unveiling of the Incredible MELVIN Restaurant

Both for visitors to Tenerife and those lucky enough to live here permanently, this is an island where you are veritably spoilt for choice in terms of places to dine out. Whether you are looking for somewhere for a quick bite to eat, or something a bit fancier, there really does seem to be something for everyone, whatever your budget and taste. While competition may be fierce in the food and drink scene though, we are always excited to see new options appearing, especially if it is somewhere offering a truly unique dining experience.

Because there are so many restaurants competing for people’s attention and interest here, it really does take somewhere truly special to stand out. Well, one recent addition to the excellent stock of places to dine in Tenerife, that has recently arrived is the incredible MELVIN Restaurant, based at Las Terrazas de Abama in the South of the island. This is sure to make a significant impact on the fine dining scene in Tenerife, with exceptional food, a stunningly beautiful location and a top-class team.

As is befitting of such an incredible restaurant, there was an exclusive event to unveil it yesterday to a select group of invitees which the team here at Tenerife Magazine were invited to. As we arrived we were greeted very kindly by all of the staff including the organisers of the event, Laura Soruco, Hotel General Manager at Las Terrazas de Abama and Desiree Lopez, Sales Manager. We also spoke to head chef Diego Dato, who trained under Martín Berasategui, who with eight Michelin stars, is widely seen as one of the best chefs in the world.

Fine Dining Experience @ The Melvin Restaurant

The Grand opening night of THE MELVIN RESTAURANT UNDER THE LEADERSHIP OF MARTÍN BERASATEGUI

Posted by Las Terrazas de Abama on Tuesday, April 24, 2018

MELVIN is a fantastic concept that combines the personality and vision of well-renowned architect Melvin Villarroe, with the amazing culinary expertise of Martín Berasategui. The influences of these two forward-thinking individuals can be seen in all aspects of the restaurant, from the delicious menu, right through to the beautiful design which fully incorporates natural light.

The inside area of the restaurant looks out through a number of sets of glass doors onto the huge terrace area. This wide use of glass within the design allows those dining inside to be able to fully appreciate and enjoy the fantastic view outside and the stunning natural light offered in Tenerife. The design helps to combine the inside and outside of the restaurant, by blurring the distinction between the two.

The overall style of the restaurant is modern, elegant and sophisticated, without seeming pretentious. The kitchen area is also fully on view, creating a feeling of theatre as the food is prepared in view of those dining, again creating and adding to the feeling of openness.

Outside there was a live band playing a selection of different jazz tunes which fit the mood of the evening very well, perfectly complimenting to the chilled-out ambience of the evening.

Throughout the event, those who attended were served a selection of different beverages.

Later on, a huge variety of different finger food prepared by Diego and his team including gazpacho, different types and croquettes and seafood paella were brought out to attendees, who were more than happy to try.

There were also speeches from Laura, Diego and others to thank everyone for coming to the event and talk about how excited they are to launch such a fantastic addition to Las Terrazas de Abama, and the contemporary fine dining scene in Tenerife.

All in all this event provided a fantastic unveiling of the incredible MELVIN restaurant which we’re more than certain will continue to become a huge success in Tenerife. You can already see from the reviews that Diego and his team have received on Tripadvisor that the restaurant is quickly moving up through the ranks due to the quality of food, excellent hospitality of the staff and fantastic views. We hope to see you there sometime in the future!

How to Enjoy a Wonderful Wine Tasting Trip in the Stunning North of Tenerife

If you are staying in the south of Tenerife, such as in Pearly Grey Resort in Callao Salvaje, you may be forgiven for believing that the island is somewhat dry and arid. Sure there are plentiful palm tree-lined avenidas, some stunning natural landscapes such as the Masca gorge and incredible cliffs of Los Gigantes, and of course an abundance of beautiful beaches to relax on with the sound of lapping waves washing onto the shore, but in terms of plant life and greenery, it can appear a little lacking.

This is because the south of the island has indeed got considerably less rainfall during the year than the north, so as can be expected it’s more difficult for a wide abundance of plant life to survive. This is certainly not the case for the whole of the island though. There is somewhat of a north-south divide in Tenerife.

Generally, the north of the island is far greener and more verdant, with a huge abundance of plant life which you won’t often see further south. This divide extends to more than just the climate though; the north of Tenerife has a wealth of history and culture, and in many ways feels a lot more authentically Spanish and Canarian in appearance and culture.

In the past, when tourists headed to Tenerife they often used to head to the original resorts of Punta del Hidalgo and Puerto de la Cruz. With the growth of the resorts in the south such as Costa Adeje, Playa de las Americas, Los Cristianos, Los Gigantes, Callao Salvaje and more, tourism in Tenerife has mainly shifted to the south.

While there is indeed much to see and do in the south, plus the weather is generally warm and sunny almost the entire year round, meaning sunbathing and swimming opportunities any month of the year, the north of Tenerife should certainly not be missed out on when you come to stay.

Luckily Viajes Nere Izerdie have you well covered with their wonderful wine tasting tour in the stunning north of Tenerife. Recently myself, John (owner of Tenerife Magazine) and Gemma (head receptionist at Pearly Grey Resort), were invited on this trip and had an absolute blast and also learned a great deal about the island. What could be better; fun and learning all rolled into one brilliant day out with friends.

After being collected in the morning from Los Cristianos by the friendly and professional tour guide Francisco, and Ivan the driver, we were transported aboard the comfortable and modern company tour bus to our first destination, the historic former capital city of Tenerife, La Laguna. Along the way, Francisco explained in perfect English (and Italian for the Italian guests) the history of La Laguna and other information about the island.

At first, it was difficult to tell exactly where Francisco was originally from as he spoke Spanish to the driver, but also perfect English and Italian to those on the excursion. We later found out he is originally from Tenerife, but had spent a number of years as a child in Surrey, hence his brilliant and ever so slightly posh British accent!

Both during the journey to La Laguna and upon our arrival and subsequent wandering around as a group, we learned a wide variety of fascinating historical facts about the city. San Cristóbal de La Laguna (the full name of the city) which is widely shortened to La Laguna, acquired its name from being in the valley of Aguere, where a large lake once existed (Laguna is lagoon in Spanish). The city was founded between 1496 and 1497, following the conclusion of the conquest of the islands by Alonso Fernández de Lugo, becoming the capital of Tenerife, and later the capital of the Canary Islands.

As you will see when you visit La Laguna, it is a very beautiful city, full of historical architecture, plazas and buildings, because of which it was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1999, the only city in the Canary Islands to hold this accolade. If you have only ever stayed in the resorts of the south of Tenerife you will feel like you’re on another island as its almost completely different!

You’ll notice that the city feels a lot more culturally authentic, with large pedestrianised cobbled streets and colonial buildings that have been there for hundreds of years. It is a fascinating place to start your trip to the north, all explained perfectly by Francisco, including brief looks inside some of the historic buildings and courtyards, where you can see attractive gardens and parts of the buildings constructed from hardy Canarian pine wood.

A walk around the amazing city of La Laguna in the North of Tenerife is like taking a fascinating trip back in time! This was once the capital of both Tenerife and ancient capital of the Canary Islands, until Santa Cruz later became Tenerife's capital city. Today it is still considered the cultural capital of the Canary Islands and became a UNESCO World Heritage sight in 1999. It is an absolutely brilliant place to explore and learn about, where you will find sights such as this stunning courtyard with historical wooden architecture. You can visit the city as part of the excellent wine tasting tour with @nereizerdieexcursionestenerife! This trip is perfect if you want to learn more about the real Tenerife! ————————————————- 📸 @lumixuk 📍La Laguna, @visit_tenerife @thecanaryislands @spain ————————————————- ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ #guardiantravelsnaps #Tenerife #tenerifetag #travel #CanaryIslands #traveltotenerife #IslasCanarias #latitudeoflife #latituddevida #Spain #españa #explore #wanderlust #wherelumixgoes #lumix #lumixg #history #historical #ancient #tenerifemagazine #LaLaguna Espana #visitspain #VisitTenerife

A post shared by Simon Emilio Turkas (@simonturkas) on

This is a world away from the hotels and apartments around Tenerife’s coastline. I would say if you want to see the real Tenerife and Canary Islands, then you absolutely must visit this historical gem of a city, the third largest of the Canaries.

Following a wander around the streets, we were led to the La Laguna food market where there was an abundance of fresh fruit, vegetables and other locally grown and produced food and drink products to buy. Here you can see the locals at work and see the produce for sale that is grown on the island. Of course, many of us enjoyed a quick coffee too, to keep us boosted for the rest of the trip.

After becoming fully caffeinated, it was back onto the bus to head further north than La Laguna to our next stop at the Bodega Presas Ocampo near the picturesque villages of Tacoronte and El Sauzal located in the Tacoronte municipality, where you will find the largest wine growing area in Tenerife. This is a verdant, beautiful area of the island that again, is completely distinct from the south. Due to the northerly aspect of this area which captures moisture from the prevailing northeasterly winds, you will discover a Mediterranean climate and landscape that is quite unlike the arid climate of the south of Tenerife and much of the rest of the Canary Islands.

During the bus journey, we passed by farms, old manorial buildings and a number of different vineyards, most of which enjoyed spectacular views out to the beautiful blue ocean. This was certainly the case for the Bodega Presas Ocampo winery, a pioneer of the Tacoronte-Acentejo Designation of Origin which we stopped at for a tour and wine tasting. The vineyard, where there were many different grape vines growing, had a wonderful view of the Atlantic ocean in the distance. There can be few more picturesque scenes than this beautiful rural scene in the northeast of Tenerife.

Inside was quite the contrast with an array of modern equipment for crushing the grapes, extracting the grape juice and separating the grape skin, rows of beautiful oak barrels for storing the wine, and a modern, efficient bottling machine. It’s clear that a lot of investment has gone into this family-owned business over the years.

Following an explanation of this process from Francisco and a knowledgeable worker at the winery, we were led to another room that looked like a kind of old-fashioned kitchen/dining room. Here we were all seated to be able to taste and enjoy the wine. We were given both a white and red wine to try, both of which were very tasty. We learned that the time from harvest to drinking for the wines produced at this winery is generally around two years, and this is the case for many wines in the Canary Islands due to the climate and type of grapes used. Therefore most wines from the Canaries are young varieties.

What many people probably don’t realise is how well established the tradition of wine production has been in the Canary Islands over hundreds of years, with the wine even being mentioned by Shakespeare in no less than 30 of his works, including some of his most famous plays such as Twelfth Night and Henry IV. This is because, during Shakespeare’s time, wine from the Canary Islands, specifically the type made from the Malvasia grape grown on the islands was regarded as one of the top drinks in mainland Europe at the time, including in England.

This led to an economic boom period for the islands, due to this substantial popularity of Canarian Wine, especially in England. Sadly this period of growth ended in 1649 when Charles II came to the throne in England which was a very important export market. His taste was for sherry and his courtiers and countrymen followed his lead, and the desire for Malvasia started to decline. Production was further hit with the growing animosity between Britain and Spain, meaning that Britain began to boycott Spanish wines in the late 17th Century.

 While wine production and international popularity has by no means reached the levels seen during that boom period, in the last decade interest in Canarian produced wines has started to rapidly grow due to their uniqueness, creating one of the most exciting wine regions to emerge in the last 10 years on the international stage. Despite the often rugged terrain, potential for volcanic activity, and strong winds which don’t seem to lend themselves well to a great wine production environment, there are some major factors in favour of the winegrowers of the Canary Islands.

 Probably the most important is that the grape vines can be ancient, sometimes literally hundreds of years old – therefore also having hundreds of years of complexity. This is due to the isolation of the region from the mainland, meaning that the disease phylloxera, a devastating root louse,  that ravaged grapevines across mainland Europe in the late 19th century never reached those of the Canary Islands. Incredibly phylloxera is believed to have destroyed 90% of the world’s grape vines, so the wines of the Canary Islands really are some of the most unique in the world.

Rather than hybrid vines that were grown in Europe by grafting European vines onto American rootstocks which were naturally immune, the grape vines in the Canary Islands are the original ungrafted varieties. To be able to taste wine grown from these varieties of grape is a fairly unique experience due to the rarity of these ungrafted vines. Added to this the year-round warm, sunny conditions are perfect for production all year round. It is fascinating taking a tour around a working winery such as Presas Ocampo, because you really do get a taste for this history of wine-making while you taste the wines and take in the tradition.

Following the tour and wine tasting, we all got back in the bus, feeling just that bit merrier, but also starting to feel slightly peckish to combine with the tipsiness of two glasses of wine on an empty stomach! Luckily we were on our way to a generous meal, of course with some more Canarian wine. We arrived at a rather amazing old fashioned bodega and tapas restaurant a short drive away where we had the option of choosing a tapas and wine lunch. While it wasn’t included in the price of the excursion, 10 euros was a very reasonable price, especially after we saw all the food.

 The first thing to mention though is how fascinating the dining area was. Downstairs as we walked in there was a large food and gift store with many different traditional products and souvenirs to buy. Upstairs was amazing though, as there was a very large dining area with chandeliers hanging from the ceiling and around all of the walls were thousands of bottles of wine as a kind of amazing wine themed decoration.

 The tapas food consisted of many different plates including Canarian Potatoes with mojo sauce, calamari, croquettes with different fillings, bread and luckily for me, some food they prepared especially including garlic mushrooms and rice and vegetables. There were also several bottles of wine for all of us to share. The food was no frills but certainly satisfied our appetites as there was plenty of it at a very reasonable price. It also offered a good chance to sit and chat with some of the other guests on the excursion with us and find out their stories and experiences of Tenerife and the tour. They all seemed to be enjoying themselves a lot too!

 Following the satisfying meal and more tasty Tenerife wine, we headed back to the bus to be driven on to the final stop on our tour of the North. Next we set off for a stop in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, the modern capital of the island. Whereas La Laguna was the capital of the island from its foundation in 1496, this position was later switched to Santa Cruz in 1723 due to a declining population and economy during the 18th century.

Then between 1833 and 1927, the city of Santa Cruz became the capital of both the island of Tenerife and all of the Canary Islands. In 1927 it was decided that capital status of the islands would be shared between Santa Cruz and Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.

 Despite many historical buildings remaining present in Santa Cruz, especially in comparison to much of the south of the island, it is noticeably more modern in general than La Laguna with some very tall modern apartment blocks and some distinctly designed buildings, such as the amazing Auditorio de Tenerife. Despite these modern designs, it remains a very attractive city, which is perfect for a wander around and exploration, with plenty of gorgeous tree lined streets which are perfect to stop at for a coffee which myself, John and Gemma did.

 We had just enough time to finish our coffee, take some photos and wander around a bit more, before it was time to head back to the impressive Plaza de España, the largest square in Tenerife and the Canary Islands, with an artificial lake at its centre. Here Francisco and Ivan were waiting for us at the bus to drive us back to Los Cristianos.

Overall this is an absolutely brilliant tour which John, Gemma and myself all fully recommend. It was a lot of fun and offers a really great way to learn about the other side of Tenerife that many tourists never experience. If you are staying at Pearly Grey Resort then you can book this trip from reception, or alternatively head on over to the Viajes Nere Izerdie website (http://www.nereizerdie.com/language/en/homepage/) for all the details.

 We would like to offer our thanks to Viajes Nere Izerdie for sponsoring this trip for Tenerife Magazine and Pearly Grey Resort, and also to Francisco our wonderful guide and Ivan for driving us safely and comfortably around the island.

Anatomy of a Press Trip

Picture a travel writer and you’re probably imagining them supping piña coladas by the hotel pool. And you’d be right to. As a hotel reviewer, I have to cover the establishment’s food and drink options; so obviously need to sample them.

What you’re probably not also conjuring up in your mind is the image of a laptop. But a travel writer has to taste and then type. A computer and camera are two of the first things we pack, and we share preview pictures (which can also be taken with a mobile) on the likes of Instagram and Twitter.

All three items were certainly in my luggage when I visited the neighbouring island of Tenerife (I’m based on Gran Canaria). I was invited to the island as part of Tenerife Magazine’s Influencer programme. And founder/social media guru John Beckley was there to meet me at the airport.

John is based in Playa de San Juan, in the island’s south-west. Seeing as I was staying at the nearby The Ritz-Carlton, Abama; he was a fount of local knowledge which I gleefully tapped into. Although he had already visited the hotel many times, John still joined me in a full and frank tour of the complex with the hotel’s marketing and communications coordinator, María Ángeles Guerrero.

This was followed by a working lunch at The Ritz-Carlton, Abama’s  Beach Club. Working as in before we could tuck into the Instagrammable dishes, we had to photograph them. And mouthfuls were interrupted by putting pen to paper (with the laptop left in the room as our transport to the Club included golf buggy and cable car) for future reference.

I had been commissioned by World Travel Magazine to write a feature about Tenerife. You can read a preview of it here. The full version is hidden behind a paywall I’m afraid, only available to magazine subscribers.

My trip also involved a potentially soil-your-own-swimwear kayak excursion with John. The Atlantic can get quite choppy at times. I recovered with a restorative glass (coffee on the Canary Islands apart from café con leche is typically served in crystal rather than china) of carajillo (the blackest/hottest coffee with a shot/slug of cognac).

Next on our to-do list was a caña (half pint of island-brewed Dorada lager) at Playa de San Juan’s Cofradia de Pescadores Nuestra Señora de la Luz. This is equivalent to the Fisherman’s Trade Union Staff Restaurant. But one which is open to the general public too.

To build up even more of an appetite, John and I embarked on a mini cliff-side hike to a ruin. It looked like an old religious building and definitely gave off that aura. But later research revealed a more prosaic truth: this was the area’s old pump-house.

I rounded off my weekend of work with another busy meal at Restaurante Marlin. Joined this time by my trusty laptop. Well, articles won’t write themselves, will they?

10 Great Options for a Tenerife Holiday

Tenerife is full of colour, beaches, sun and exotic plants (if you head further north of the Island). Tourists have such a variety of things to see, places to visit and wonderful culture. If you are a traveller that likes to get to know the people and culture of where you visit, you will love the Canarian folk as they are the friendliest people that I have met!

What is not to like about Tenerife?  All year sunshine, scorching summers, an array of hotels, bars and restaurants to choose from. Tourists are spoilt for choice when it comes to dining, accommodation and beautiful clean beaches.

From experience, here you can find 10 amazing options for the south of Tenerife which range from dining to beaches, to where to visit or excursions. Whatever you decide to do on your holiday to Tenerife, either relaxing or packing your days with adventure, without doubt, you will have a fabulous time.

1. Sea, Whales & Dolphins

Feeling free, at sea and watching the wildlife was something that will be one of my best memories in Tenerife! This excursion was simply fabulous, fun and natural. Watching the whales and dolphins out at sea was how it should be. The crew at Neptune Sea Company, based in Calle de Colon, Costa Adeje were absolutely first class. My choice to head out via the Peter Pan (Portuguese Goleta) was brilliant and they offer other sailing options to suit all tastes.

One thing I really liked about this company is the crew spoke lots of different languages, they were very friendly and safety was their first priority at all times. Loved this adventure! Well worth a trip out and you can find out more about these excursions by visiting their website: www.barcostenerife.com

2. Siam Park & Oriental Beauty

The most well known and talked about water parks in Tenerife and one of the best in Europe. A day out here will make the family have a day to remember. The water slides are challenging in areas but there are also relaxing rides which make this place a fabulous option for the whole family. There is even a smaller children’s water park area so parents can feel relaxed knowing the little ones are also enjoying the fun. There is also a giant man-made beach which has fabulous waves that is often rented out at night for surfers to practice their skills.

The park is filled with amazing exotic palm trees, plants and oriental statues, that are simply stunning. If you have not got around to visiting Siam Park, what are you waiting for? Add it to your list and enjoy the adventures of  Tenerife. For more information, visit their website: http://www.siampark.net/index.php/en/

3. Wine Tasting, Growing & Friendly Staff

If you are looking for a half day excursion and like wine or want to know more about how the local wines are produced, this is a perfect option for you to choose. Villaflor is a local village, based in the south of Tenerife and higher above the ground level. It can get pretty hot up there so make sure you take sun cream, a hat and water.

Vindos Angola is a family run winery which will offer you some amazing information on how the wine starts from the grape plant, right up to it being bottled. You will get to taste some of the delicious wines, cheeses to nibble on and then a light lunch. The staff are friendly, extremely knowledgeable and they arrange for collection and drop off at your hotel. You can find more information via Facebook.

4. Mini Golf course in Playa de Las Americas

If you are wanting a few hours to fill in your day in Playa de Las Americas, the Santiago Mini Golf (opposite Hard Rock Café) is a good choice. This is often missed as it is set back and hidden behind the cafeteria. All around this area is so colourful, with stunning mosaics. The Mini Golf features cactus plants, flowers and water features. Perfect for any age, group or family. Great location for a day out too!

5. Hard Rock Café & Theatre

Again, set in Playa de Las Americas, the Hard Rock Café is a popular choice for tourists who want the experience of an American diner type food. They offer a great menu, even for those fussy eaters, and tourists get to see the walls which display discs, guitars and other memorabilia.

Of course, this would not be a tourist attraction without the shop at the exit where you can purchase a T-Shirt, cap or other branded merchandise. Set alongside the theatre, it is easily recognised by the large columns and water feature which hosts a statue of a guitar.

6. Tranquil beach of Playa San Juan

If you are looking for a quieter option and away from the major beaches of Playa de Las Americas, Los Cristianos or Fanabe (Costa Adeje), this pretty little harbour offers a small beach which is not well known to tourists. Playa San Juan is based in Guia de Isora (heading from Costa Adeje to Los Gigantes) and an easy bus ride.

It has some nice restaurants, the harbour which offers great water-themed excursions and a stunning beach walkway where you can sit in the shade. With a beach area of golden, black and pebbles, the area offers sunbeds and a small bar on the beach. Perfect for a peaceful day out, bit of food and a nice glass of Sangria.

7. Afternoon or evening Tapas in Callao Salvaje

My visit to Callao Salvaje included a really nice view of some rugged coastline and a walk around the local shops, restaurants and bars. One of the best places to visit for your holiday memory box is to try the tapas at ‘The Edge Restaurant’ at Pearly Grey Ocean Club.

The quality of the food is outstanding and the sunsets will offer you the most amazing views for your holiday photograph shots. The food is first class and all credit to the team, they deliver some amazing dishes. More information can be found by visiting the website: https://www.pearlygrey.com/

8. Fine Italian Dining

If you like good Italian food, nice relaxing atmosphere and a romantic setting, Monte Christo restaurant in Costa Adeje is a winner. The soft music, personal service and quality food is a great choice and nice holiday treat. It is not the cheapest but you get what you pay for; excellent food and classy surroundings.

The desserts are mouth-watering and I would recommend the chef’s home recipe for Tiramisu. My appetite has just increased thinking about the food here. You can find more information on https://www.facebook.com/MonteChristoTenerife/

9. Siam Mall shopping in Tenerife

Most tourist resorts offer the same type of shopping experiences of souvenirs, T-shirts and general items that really, end up as clutter. What is difficult to track down in Tenerife is clothes and woollens, shoes or other clothing which can be a little more expensive. If you are looking to top up your holiday clothes or forgot to pack some items, head over to Siam Mall as there are some really good clothing shops which are not expensive. More in line with the latest trends and really good value for money.

You can take advantage of the lovely cafes or restaurants here and even catch the Free Bus which are available from Playa de Las Americas, Los Cristianos or Costa Adeje. With the recent addition of Starbucks, you can grab a coffee and enjoy some lovely shopping at a price that will not put stress on your holiday money. What more could you ask for? More information about Siam Mall is available here: https://ccsiammall.com/

10. Lady Candelaria and Basilica

Candelaria is very famous in Tenerife and Lady Candelaria is regarding as one of the most respected and religious patron saints on the Island. The statue of Lady Candelaria attracts the most pilgrims each year and has visitor’s, year upon year from around the world.

The Basilica (church) is stunning, in pristine condition and well loved. Set on the rugged coastline with the statues of the Guanches facing onto the Plaza, this is a great tourist attraction to visit to pass the day. You will get to see local culture, local food and beautiful architecture. Simply beautiful!

The Island is packed with true beauty from rugged volcanic mountains to wonderful coastlines, stunning sunsets and exotic greenery. A perfect holiday choice for any age and it is easy to see why tourists return back to this amazing Island time after time.

Where to Find Some Great Restaurants in Los Cristianos

Los Cristianos has a brightly coloured coastline, harbour to catch a ferry to the neighbouring island of La Gomera, plenty of bars and an array of some great, long standing restaurants. The popular choices have been many tourist’s favourites over the years and still today, they attract diners and maintain good reviews on Tripadvisor.

Tenerife has so many fabulous places to eat with different cuisines to choose from so selection is readily available. From Thai, Italian, French, Chinese and my favourite, Canarian, this is just to name a few!

Rincón del Marinero, c/cabeza Muella Viejo not just your ordinary fish selection

Tenerife offers an amazing opportunity to dine with fresh fish choices and over the years, Los Cristianos was once one of the busiest fishing ports on the Island. Home to fisherman and some delicious fresh fish. This fish restaurant is one of the longstanding favourites which has been operating since 1978 and specialises in fresh fish or seafood only.

Over the years, I have walked past this restaurant countless times as it is on the main walkway from Los Cristianos to Playa de Las Americas (just before the subway tunnel). The downside of this restaurant is that there is no view, it just looks out onto a yard which is in front of the harbour. The positive side is that you will be guaranteed fresh fish or seafood!

Traditional Sea Bass is on the menu or you can opt for something a little different like Wreckfish (which is great for sharing for two) or why not try the Snapper fish. Other menu favourites include garlic prawns, Calamari or seafood Paella.

It is easy to spot with the fishing boat located at the entrance of the restaurant and the bold blue and white colours will catch your attention either before or after coming out of the subway.

Linares, Av, Las Playeras 41 is central location and popular Italian food

Trading since 1957, Linares is situated in a prime location, short walk to the beach and a popular choice for lunchtime or evening meal. Inside dining or you can sit in the shade outside in the main street and take a cold beer or glass of wine. If you feel like getting more into the theme, try a Sangria.

You can expect to find dishes such as pasta, pizza, cannelloni, steaks, mixed grill or fish paella.

Linares is close to many shops so if you fancy a little bit of shopping along the way, this is a perfect choice. This restaurant is certainly in a good location and an ideal resting area to top up on refreshments or chill out at night for an evening meal.

Check out a nice, quirky gift shop Ale Hop which is based in the same street as Linares and a fun little place to take a peek. Most of the holiday type shops offer the same tourist style gifts but this one is worth a visit.

Mongolian, Av. Amsterdam and offers eat all you can style dining

Renowned for good food and value, this popular restaurant certainly pulls in the crowds at night. A little walk from the beach, heading towards Paradise Park Hotel direction (but not up the slightly steep hill so it’s easy to walk to), this restaurant builds up its name based on repeat business.

For €12 per person, you can have starters of sushi, duck, pancakes, ribs, wontons, spring rolls (remember this is eat all you can style) so you can mix and match. Main dishes include steak, lamb chops, chicken, fish, king prawns, mussels and more. There are around 30 sauces to choose from which you can select and then take your food to the chef who cooks it in front of you with your selected sauce.

There is a choice of desserts too so you can see why this restaurant attracts many visitors night after night. For those tourists who have a large appetite, this is ‘food heaven’.

The quality of the food receives great reviews on Tripadvisor so it is definitely worth checking it out if you are staying in or around Los Cristianos.

Whichever restaurant you select, it’s great that you have ventured out to support the local businesses. It is really important to step out and take a look around the area, try some different food and enjoy what Los Cristianos has to offer, especially the fantastic restaurants and friendly service.

Take advantage of Tenerife, especially Los Cristianos and relax, eat and be happy!

The Edge of Perfection for Tapas at Pearly Grey

For those readers who have read my previous articles, it’s clear that ‘good food and nice settings’ are key factors on my list. For those who don’t know me, let me tell you about a wonderful restaurant which is situated in a sleepy little town called Callao Salvaje, not far from Costa Adeje. The Edge Restaurant is a hidden little gem of a place which has stunning views of a rugged coastline and food to ‘just dream about’. Honestly, this food is amazing!

It was a perfect opportunity for me to get some photographs of the sun going down and the night falling in. It was wonderful to physically see the sun moving closer to the sea and within minutes, it disappeared.

The Edge Restaurant is situated in the Pearly Grey hotel. Tapas and good restaurants is one of my specialities and I don’t just want to talk to you about what was on offer, I want to let you visualise the dishes which were produced by a fabulous chef and assistant.

The outside dining area was the perfect setting with low lighting, soft furnishings, cool sea breeze (heaters on the terrace kept the temperature spot on for an evening meal – it was December time but still really warm). Fresh, warm, comfortable and totally relaxed, ready to see what tapas were heading my way!

The mood was light and fun, sipping a drink and chatting, it was easy to see why the Edge Restaurant was appealing to the holidaymakers who wanted to escape the crowds and enjoy some top cuisine.

Chatting to one of the guests at the hotel, I wanted to get to know his opinion, especially the food. The relaxed conversation supported what I was hoping for (as I was still about to experience my food which was being prepared). The guest had returned for another holiday at Pearly Grey and his reaction was for the food, peaceful location and the stunning sunsets.

Well our food was nearly ready to be served and it was time for me to see if it lived up to the conversation we had just had or if this would be a mediocre meal. With our table all set, eyes glued to the waitress in anticipation of hunger, the plates started arriving!

Beautifully cooked cutlets which were seasoned and dressed with some spicy chickpeas. Tucking into this dish and adding some to my plate, the meat melted in my mouth and then followed the kick of the chickpeas. Fabulous choice for those diners who like a little spice added to the flavour of their food. Perfect!

Next up was perfectly rolled, fresh healthy vegetables and salad in a tortilla style wrap, which any vegetarian would enjoy. The attention to detail in the presentation of this dish was outstanding. Dressed to impress and perfection on a plate.

Another stunning and well presented dish was round, vegetable (patty like) treats. Packed with flavours that would make any palate happy and the tapas were finished off with a beautiful drizzle of sauce dressing. I even tucked into the dressing and side salad to ensure I got the full advantage of the seasons used. My appetite just kept increasing.

For diners who like Octopus, well this dish would impress you. Perfectly presented, seasoned and garnished with a bit of colour. Finely chopped and dressed with a slight sprinkle of seasoning, this kept our crowd tucking in for more.

It is easy to see how the Edge Restaurant receives praise after praise for the top class food it serves guests and diners. The dishes exceeded my expectations without doubt and it left me wanting more of the wonderful flavours and perfectly presented food. What more could anyone ask for?

Sitting back, listening to the music, the good food, wine and scenery, what a great end to our night and an added bonus to watch the stunning sunset from the restaurant. I suddenly keyed in to think about my previous conversation early on in the night, from the guest and ‘totally got him’ regarding his reasons for coming back to stay at Pearly Grey hotel and to make the most of this stunning restaurant.

The hotel and Edge Restaurant is known for picture perfect opportunities. This place is a winner for anyone who is thinking of booking a nice table for Valentines day, anniversary or simply just a really good meal or get together! The standards are exceptional and the views are just stunning.

To end this amazing night of perfect food and magical scenery, it was lovely to meet the genius’ behind the scene who cooked these amazing tapas. (Oh and the desserts are another reason to indulge that little bit more). Keep up the great work as you are an amazing team!

Thank you to Pearly Grey for providing this stunning setting and restaurant for a ‘great little get away’. Most of all, the amazing tapas and gourmet food which this restaurant offers. Reserve a table for me please, as I will most certainly be back for more!

5 Top Tips for Real Canarian Tapas

With so many beautiful parts of Tenerife to explore, this time my selection was Los Cristianos, where I was on the look out for some good tapas. Yes, proper tapas like what the local people eat and not tourist labelled tapas which has an overcharged price tag attached to the menu.

Los Cristianos is such a stunning area of beautiful beaches, sand and plenty of restaurants.

Heading along the beachfront, I decided to go off the main beach walk area and towards the bus station. Local people know that good, authentic tapas are cheaper and better away from the main tourist areas. Luckily, a local friend had told me about a cafeteria, Casa Goyo which was on my list to try out and they were based in Los Cristianos. What was I waiting for? Off I went in search of this restaurant to check out the quality and price of the tapas.

Tip No 1 – open your options to looking away from the beach front and travel more inland or better still, the local garages serve great tapas and drinks with very reasonable prices.

CASA GOYO

True to form, the caféteria had local people taking a coffee and tapas so I knew that the price would be good to my purse and the quality should be on par with what I expected, but you never know until you try it.

Casa Goyo which is situated in Bulevar Chajofe, 3, 38650, Los Cristianos. It was a nice sunny morning and a week before Christmas. Heading into the cafeteria, the brightly glowing interior colours of orange and yellow, gave me a happy feeling to this place. Instantly I thought that the orange walls matched the beautiful shades of the parasols down at the playa and the yellow contrast matched the glowing sun which was out in full force that day

Spotlessly clean and typical of a local Canarian style cafeteria, I instantly knew that the tapas were going to be the real thing.

Tip No 2 – look for a caféteria or bar in which the locals eat to ensure you get the authentic Canarian style food.

Usually, a standard selection would be around 6 tapas and this would range from Tortilla, Meatballs, Chicken thighs or drumsticks in a sauce, croquettes, ensaladilla, Octopus or Beef, potato & chickpea stew. There will be other types of tapas as this depends on the cafeteria or bar.

Sitting myself down outside among the local people, I was greeted by a nice waitress who spoke a little English but as I knew what I wanted, it was easy to order my 2 tapas selection. For me it would be Tortilla (Omelette) and Ensaladilla (Potato Salad).

One of the good points when ordering tapas, you don’t have to wait long for your food. Sipping my refreshing Fanta Lemon (a must if you go to Tenerife), true to form, my food arrived quite quickly and certainly not to the meaning of the word ‘tapas’. The portion was huge and far too much for me to eat alone but I gave it a good go and tucked straight into it.

Tip No 3 – always go into the bar area and take a look at the selection of tapas available. Ask what they have and check with croquettes as sometimes the potatoes can be mixed with chicken or fish

All fresh products, healthy side salad and the tomatoes are one of my favourites ‘must eat’ when holidaying in Tenerife. The tortilla was packed with seasoning and potatoes and a great choice for any vegetarian.

Again, the ensaladilla was a perfect choice but unfortunately my efforts were not that good as I only managed to eat half.

Tip 4 – by finding a proper Canarian tapas cafeteria, you should save on price and increase in portion size

You don’t just have to have tapas, there are plenty of other tasty dishes on the menu for instance Paella or you could just order a sandwich and coffee to keep you on the go (which I did on another day, just to try out other options).

One thing that is important is, to get out of the hotel and take a walk around, see the area and support local businesses. It can be difficult for them to compete against the ‘all inclusive hotels’ and therefore they appreciate you stopping by, even if it is just for a drink and a friendly ‘hola’.

Finding a local tapas cafeteria or bar is certainly one of the cheapest options to eat out and it is ideal if you want to stick to a budget. The food is filling, good quality and more value for money.

Quite often, tourists will walk past this type of place when looking where to eat, as it is not the usual form of restaurant or holiday enticement. What I would say is, keep your eyes peeled and take a look next time. It certainly is worth a try and eating where the locals choose is definitely a winner in my books.

Tip 5 – to maximise your money and selection, head into one of the local towns where you will find even more selections of great food, tapas and cheaper prices. You will find great soups, goat stews, cheeses and meat dishes, all for half of the price you would pay in the tourist areas.

Luckily, Casa Goyo has reasonable prices even though they are only 5 minutes walk from the beach so it’s great to know that this cafeteria is offering excellent food, at a reasonable price.

After my food, the stunning scenery of Los Cristianos offered me a perfect setting to stroll along and click away on my camera. Perfectly relaxed and satisfied with my choice of tapas.

If you are staying in Playa Las Americas then I would recommend ‘Rosie’s Bar’ which is situated opposite the Chieftain Pub, close the Columbus Hotel. If staying in Costa Adeje, I would recommend Bar Rebumbio which is situated at Fanabe Plaza.

Choosing a good tapas restaurant or cafeteria is part of the fun of exploring so ‘enjoy the fun’ and hopefully you will be sure to find some tasty treats!

Why Now is the Perfect Time to Visit Tenerife

So you think you know Tenerife? It’s all beaches, bars and sunburnt tourists right? Well if that’s your only perception right now it’s time to totally reconsider this beautiful island paradise. It is the  largest and most populated of the seven main Canary Islands and with around five million visitors each year, it is also the most popular tourist destination of the Spanish archipelago. In fact it is one of the most important Spanish and global travel and tourism destinations in the world. What you will realise is Tenerife is so much more than first meets the eye.

Of course one of the biggest draws of Tenerife, along with all of the Canary Islands is the amazing year-round spring like climate. It is not an overstatement to say that there is sunshine and bright blue skies almost every single day of the year, with very little variation in the temperature whichever month you choose to go. You can practically stroll around in shorts and t-shirt whether you choose to visit Tenerife in the winter or summer with a winter average of 18ºC in winter and 23ºC in the summer. This is in stark contrast to the rest of Europe!

While there are undoubtedly those that visit Tenerife to spend a week laying on the beach or by the pool getting sunburnt and drinking cheap beer, we know that most of you are looking for a far more interesting and exciting vacation. We are here to tell you why now is the perfect time to visit Tenerife.

Action Packed Water Parks:

The amazing year round climate in Tenerife lends itself perfectly to outdoor activities and fun. The island boasts a number of excellent water parks which are great for all age groups, and are perfect for a day out as a couple, with a group of friends or with your family. Not only that, but you will find Siam Park, voted the best water park in the world for the fourth consecutive year in the TripAdvisor 2017 Travelers’ Choice Awards!

Plenty of Activities to Enjoy on the Beautiful Atlantic Ocean:

The beautiful climate of Tenerife also offers the perfect opportunity to get out onto the open ocean waves. There are a number of excellent activities to try out to suit many different interests. For those looking for an adrenaline fuelled adventure you can try jet-skiing with West Tenerife.

If you want a more relaxing activity where you can take in your surroundings more peacefully, including seeing beautiful dolphins in the wild you should definitely try out kayaking with Tenerife in Kayak.

For those of you that prefer to sit back and relax and let someone else take care of the sailing, then you can enjoy a luxurious VIP sailing adventure with Blue Jack Sail.

The waters around the Canary Islands are some of the best in the world for whale and dolphin watching, and one of the most established companies in Tenerife for an excursion to see these magnificent ocean animals is Freebird Catamaran.

Discover Life Under the Ocean Waves:

It’s not just above the waves that are amazing, but down below the surface the ocean is teaming with wonderful aquatic life. There are many different ways to experience the fascinating wildlife that exists there, but surely one of the most unique must be in a submarine! Tenerife has one of the only submarines in the world that is available for tourist excursions, operated by the fantastic Submarine Safaris.

Experience the Incredible Natural Beauty of the Island:

Tenerife itself is an incredibly diverse island with amazing natural beauty. This includes a stunning coastline with beautiful beaches, natural pools and gorgeous palm tree lined promenades. While most people head to the coastline of the island, especially in the sunnier South, you definitely shouldn’t miss out on the stunning inland landscape.

As with all of the Canary Islands, Tenerife is a volcanic island with a multitude of mountains. This includes Mount Teide which stands at an amazing height of 3,718-metres, making it not only the highest point in Spain, but also the highest point above sea-level in the islands of the Atlantic. It is described as the third-tallest volcanic structure in the world by UNESCO and NASA.

As you ascend up Mount Teide away from the coast the vegetation changes from palm trees to pine forests and you will truly get to appreciate how diverse this amazing island really is. The surroundings and the volcano comprise Teide National Park, the most visited national park in Spain and Europe. If you are looking for somewhere amazing and unique to explore on your next vacation to Tenerife, then you absolutely must take a hiking trip around Teide National Park. For a variety of excellent specialised tours and activities on Mount Teide and around Teide National Park, then head over to the Volcano Teide website.

See Stunning Tenerife from the Air:

To experience how stunning the landscape of Tenerife is from a completely unique perspective, you should definitely consider heading up into the air. From up above you can take in much more of the island at once and see it in a way that most other visitors will not have ever tried before. There are a variety of options available to suit different tastes. If you are looking for an adrenaline packed adventure, then you will absolutely love a paragliding flight with Airsports Tenerife.

If you are looking to soar above Tenerife in a more luxurious style but still with the stunning views from above, then choose a helicopter flight with Helidream Helicopters.

Enjoy An Up Close Encounter With Incredible Animals:

As well as the animals native to the Canary Islands, you can also enjoy an up close encounter with incredible animals at a number of excellent zoos in Tenerife. One in particular, Loro Parque, is especially worth a trip to considering it was rated the Number One Best Zoo in the World in the TripAdvisor 2017 Travellers Choice Awards.

A Huge of Variety of Excellent Places to Eat and Drink:

While you can come to Tenerife and simply eat and drink at the onsite restaurants and bars in the hotel or resort you decide to stay at, or alternatively go to the same boring British themed pubs and Irish bars, we definitely don’t recommend this. Instead there are a huge selection of excellent places to eat and drink across the island to suite all different tastes and price ranges.

These include restaurants with Spanish, British, Asian, Italian, Mexican, French and traditional Canarian cuisines and a whole host of other styles. One excellent choice, especially for those who are partial to top quality American style meat dishes is Brunelli’s Steakhouse located in Puerto de la Cruz.

Huge Selection of Stunning Places to Stay:

Too many people in the past have chosen to stay in large, boring all-inclusive resorts when visiting the Canary Islands. While these can serve a certain purpose as they take some of the stress out of holidaying for families, with less to worry about with all meals provided. Unfortunately what often happens is that those who choose to stay in all-inclusive resorts don’t end up experiencing much of the amazing things that Tenerife has to offer as they tend to stay most of the time in the resort. This means that these tourists don’t see the real Tenerife and also this is very negative for many of the businesses across the island.

Instead here at Tenerife Magazine, we recommend staying in hotels and resorts that are not all-inclusive, and also of course for you to explore the island and try many of excursions that we have suggested. One of the best hotels on the island is the gorgeous luxury 5* Hotel Suite Villa María located in La Caleta, Adeje.

As you can tell there are so many amazing things to see, do and experience in Tenerife. While you will undoubtedly enjoy the sun, sand and sea, the island is so much more than the typical stereotypes you may have heard. Make 2018 the year you decide to discover the true nature of this sun-filled Spanish paradise!

5 Tasty Choices to Eat in Tenerife

From cafes, bars, restaurants and 5-star Michelin gourmet food, you will have a fantastic choice of dining when it comes to eating in Tenerife. The selection is endless and the standards are improving, year upon year. From international dishes of English, Italian, Chinese, Indian, right through to the local dishes of the Canarian style, which are definitely top of my list.

Having visited the island many times, over a lot of years, for me the food is one of the most enjoyable things of Tenerife. Why? Because it tastes so damn good!

Here is a quick look at my 5 tasty choices to eat in Tenerife.

Food for thought at Mesón Era Las Mozas and the portions are huge.

Typical Canarian and oh boy is this place really great value for money as it offers top, quality food. Popular with the local people but over the years, tourists are becoming more and more aware of this fabulous restaurant. They head there to try out the large meat portions that are on offer.

You will find Mesón Era Las Mozas in Calle La Cabezada 26, Valle San Lorenzo which is in the South part of Tenerife. Hard working staff and a bonus as they have the menu in English too.

The slow cooked chicken is a ‘must try’ or if you feel like a challenge, try one of the famous pork chops. Don’t forget the mojo to add to the Canarian potatoes and why not try a butterbean and ham soup for starters or garlic goat’s cheese. Simply delicious!

All the right ingredients for a classical and elegant restaurant at Monte Christo

If you want to have the option of an Italian meal while holidaying in Tenerife, Fanabe hosts a fabulous restaurant for that extra classy touch. Monte Christo is an elegant and selected restaurant that offers tourists a quiet, relaxed and refined dining experience for an evening meal.

The restaurant is situated in Calle Bruselas, Adeje and opposite the Bahia Princess Hotel.

The experience here is truly a high standard of interior and food. The fillet steak is a winner for me and the ‘secret ingredients’ for the Tiramisu dessert is something you must try before leaving. For me, the memory of eating in this amazing restaurant, stays with me and a longing for me to visit again, really soon!

Please be aware that the restaurant is closed on a Wednesday so make sure you don’t plan your special night for this time of the week.

Let’s be honest, the views don’t get much better than from La Baranda

If you are staying in Tenerife North, La Baranda in El Sauzal is a place worth visiting for the views alone. The simple style café type service, offers day time menu but at night, it is vibrant with music and locals enjoying dancing.

This is a perfect choice for some tapas but they also offer a selection of meals such as steaks or fish. The inside is fresh, cool and airy and the cafeteria also offers an amazing balcony where you can take in some of the fresh air, spectacular views and lose your cares to the world.

The hidden little gem of a place is a photographer’s paradise and a fantastic choice for afternoon snacks, cold drink or just a light meal to watch the sun go down. With postcard views, framed with green palm trees and plants, the added little houses dotted around in the background, make this a colour scenic picture for any traveller.

Power up your day trip to Candelaria by eating at Doña Pata

Many tourists head out to Candelaria and if so, don’t miss the opportunity to take some local food in a wonderful cafeteria which is hidden at the back of the main square. Doña Pata is situated in Calle Obispo Perez and it offers some really good local dishes, meats and fresh food. It is a fraction of the cost from the restaurants in the main plaza of Candelaria so if you are heading that way, make note of the name and address.

The colourful green and orange interior offers a vibrant setting for locals and tourists. It has great views out to sea and being sat inside, you will be sheltered from the winds which can be blustery in Candelaria.

The best kept secret tapas in Los Cristianos is at San Luis

Last but not least, my choice is a relaxing restaurant based in Los Cristianos. San Luis is based in the old cobbled streets part of the town and situated in Calle Estocolmo 7. It has a relaxing feel to the place and looks very pretty.

You will need to walk up the steps to gain entrance so this restaurant is not suited for those people who have mobility issues.

There are some lovely tapas on the menu, good wine and a friendly feel to the place. Set in the main busy area of Los Cristianos, it is ideal to walk in the afternoon looking around the shops or a stroll along the beach to finish off your day.

My work is featured from experiences of eating in the restaurants or cafeterias so all information is based on my opinion. Photographs are images taken by me and therefore reflect my interpretation of my views.

Tenerife’s popularity among those looking for an amazing year-round sunny holiday destination continues to grow. Increasingly though, people visiting the island are looking for new experiences that take them off the beaten track and are looking to explore alternative places, experience different adventures and discover unique new venues to eat and drink at.

Chillout and Cocktail bar,

Well we’re going to let you in on one of Tenerife’s best kept secrets, because our readers have great taste.

Lunch at The Edge

A post shared by The Edge (@pgtheedge) on

While The Edge has been open for a couple of years, it has very recently been refurbished and updated to become even better than it already was which wasn’t easy, as it was already a fantastic place to eat and drink. As the name suggests it is located right on the edge of the sea front. This is not just some standard sea front view overlooking an overcrowded beach. Instead you will be sitting up high on a cliff edge in the tranqil town of Callao Salvaje, making this the perfect spot to enjoy a delicious meal with your friends or family, or simply chill-out with a drink.

The views out to the ocean are quite simply sublime and if you look down over the stunning complete glass fence, you will experience the true power of the ocean as the waves crash into the cliffs below. When the tide is in and the waves are at their full strength you can literally feel slight vibrations which really adds an extra element to the ambience. At any time of day though, the view will leave you spell-bound as you glance across the Atlantic ocean to La Gomera on the horizon. During the day-time you will be bathed in beautiful sunshine, really adding to the vibrant colour contrast, or if you decide to stay for an evening meal or a cocktail you will be treated to a gorgeous sunset.

The Edge caters for all tastes and preferences, with a wide variety of different drink and food options available. This ranges from simple but tasty bar snacks, to full meals prepared by our team of top class chefs. Award winning head chef Daryl has worked in restaurants in a number of different countries, and now prepares world class meals for those lucky enough to discover The Edge which we fully recommend you to as well. Along with a full refurb of the restaurant the menu has been redesigned with a number of delicious new options available.

What a delight

A post shared by The Edge (@pgtheedge) on

While the Edge is located within the grounds of Pearly Grey Ocean Club it is open to outside visitors and hotel guests alike. During the daytime you will be able to gaze out at the beautiful blue ocean and a variety of passing sea vessels sailing past, while a soundtrack of calm chill out music plays. Then in the evening you will be treated to spectacular sunsets as the sun sets on the horizon, with La Gomera in the distance. There are also different themed evenings on different days of the week with top class performances from a variety of entertainers such as musical groups.

Relax with obsession every Thursday #pearlygreyoceanclub #callaosalvaje #tenerife

The stunning location overlooking the ocean waves rolling in and out far below, as well as the wonderful design will make you feel like you are on a cruise. This makes a meal or drink at The Edge Restaurant & Cocktail Bar truly feel like a unique experience, unlike so many other standard restaurants and bars dotted around the island. This is one of the many reasons, along with the amazing quality of food, excellent service and general ambience, why this is a perfect venue for all kinds of special occasions.
