Just returned from 2 weeks on the Island - Salzberg in La Arena is still the best restaurant in my opinion. Great Fillet Steak and the Apple Strudel is divine. The Schnitzel baguette at lunchtime is a great tummy filler after a morning on the beach. The staff are attentive and the service is second to none.
Enjoyed the Wine Club (value for money and the kids eating free is a good gimmick that seems to work) - It seemed popular as well.
The Chinese - Palacios de Oleureu (or whatever it's called)in La Arena - again nice people and good service although always get takeaway these days - the Duck Pancakes are great.
The Mexican in Puerto Santiago - not the one that used to be little Mexico but the other one with the larger menu and the chap in the cowboy hat who used to work at little mexico. Had a meal in there and the kids enjoyed it and the food was pretty good but I always get frustrated by waiters who "memorise" your order rather than write it down and then forget a couple of things....
Sala Thai - have driven past every visit for the last 4 years or so - decided to try - Always empty - Food tasted ok but not fantastic by any means. Visited this the day after the mexican , maybe not a good idea even on a strong constitution. Soups and Starters were delicious - main course was a bit bland tbh.
Juan Lanos - My Dad's fave was closed for August.....gutted
Little Italy - My wife loved the waiters peering down into the toilets at her ....food and sercice were poor as well . Avoid.
Domingos - Great toasties and nice cocktails - service is great as well.
El-Meson - Puerto Santiago - a nice more traditional canarian restaurant. Good Food - read Borris and Dorris' guide for more info - we really enjoyed it here.
Scoobies - Well you have to have an English Breakfast at least once on holiday !!! - Great place and the kids loved the Scooby Doo theme - located in Puerto Santiago commercial centre... great Bacon and Egg Sandwich.
We always want to try some of the more local restaurants in Alcala and San Juan but feel a bit intimidated - if anyone has any recommendations for next time then please let me know.
