800 degrees… the hottest steak cooked in Tenerife

Restaurant review: Brunelli’s, Puerto de la Cruz JUST a stone’s throw from the world-renowned Loro Parque, you will find Brunelli’s Steakhouse, which can almost be likened to Dr Who’s Tardis! You enter, through an unassuming front door, into a world of modern and contemporary warmth. It is clad out in wood, and the walls are […]

A quintessentially British experience

THIS week, at El Corazon restaurant, we were treated to a very civil affair of  “afternoon high tea”, a concept rather novel for us islanders. It is situated within the picturesque Chayofa Country Club resort, and we had the choice of sitting inside in the shade, or outside on the poolside terrace. Owners Sarah and […]

Fish-and-chip heaven!

by Gordon Slayney WHEN I was asked if I would like to review a new fish-and-chip shop on the island, I sort of imagined what I would be getting. How wrong I was!When we arrived at The Reef, on Golf del Sur, I was suprised to see that the establishment was split into two. On […]

Home from home – with a view

THIS week, we visited a lovely, harbour-front eatery for a spot of light lunch. New owners Carlo and Elena, who originally hail from Italy, always had a dream of owning a beach-front restaurant.

SPAIN’S wine consumption last year increased for the first time in decades, from between 2.5% and 4%, to hit 9.8 million hectolitres (one hectolitre equals 100 litres). But the figures, provided by the Spanish Wine Market Observatory (OEMV), are still way below the country’s average production of around 42m hectolitres, which leaves Spain at the […]

Be a burger-builder!

TED’S Grill is a must-place to be if you really enjoy your food, and the outlook. The Veronicas bar has been open for about four months, and has free wifi and a beautiful terrace with fantastic sea views. We were welcomed warmly, and, once seated, my companion and I enjoyed a good chat with the […]

Tenerife’s Hard Rock Café is one of the biggest in Europe, with two floors holding over 550 people. And that’s saying something for a company with 209 establishments worldwide in 74 countries, […]

A burger to remember!

WHEN first arriving at Smokey’s Beer Garden, two things struck me; its elevated position with amazing views over the beach and sea, and the gentle, smokey aroma coming from the kitchen. It was as though I had just arrived at a friend’s house for a BBQ, knowing that all those old favourite flavours were about […]
