As your next holiday approaches, you might become increasingly obsessed with all the details of the trip. Will the weather hold out? Will the hotel live up to its billing? There are so many aspects you can’t control, but you can’t help but fixate on them because they’ll have a lot to say about whether the memories you make are fond ones. But as much as you hope for sunshine, it is important to spend your time planning out the things you can control – things that are easily overlooked – like where you take your meals. After hours spent baking on the beach or checking out attractions, a tasty dinner will be the best way to take the edge off of your tiring day. Tenerife restaurants have something for every palette.

Among the highest rated restaurants in Tenerife is Los Roques, located in the scenic fishing village of Los Abrigos on the island’s southern coast. Situated in the harbor, it has a dining terrace that overlooks the docks where fishing boats unload their day’s catch. The menu leans heavily on seafood, offering entrees like Pan Fried Fillet of locally caught Dorada or Fish and Seafood Tagine. If you like sampling the local fare, another solid choice is Bar El Cine in the resort district of Los Cristianos. You can order your meal straight off the boats, like fried squid or catch of the day.

Because Tenerife is surrounded on all sides by oceans, you’ll have a choice of fine seafood everywhere you go. But it isn’t your only option. Restaurant Monte Christo in Adeje is a classy Italian establishment that has earned high marks for its pasta dishes. They offer a variety of vegetarian selections, and their desserts are famously homemade. As Tenerife is a Spanish island, it makes sense that you would find an array of Spanish restaurants. One of the best is Café Jardin Flor del Drago in Puerto de Santiago. Aside from the usual Spanish fare, you can choose from exotic offerings such as Cajun Salmon.

You will find restaurants aplenty in every corner of Tenerife. Resort destinations are usually adept at offering their visitors a deep selection of culinary delights, and this remarkable island is no exception. Just as you’ll find attractions for all ages and interests, so too will you find dining. Tenerife’s restaurants can add a touch of class and culture to your stay.
