  • Just returned from 3 weeks in Tenerife (2 weeks in LG).

    Weather very very hot and much hotter than previous Septembers.

    Had a very lazy time as too hot to do much except lounge about the pool and go to the beach (not a bad way to spend 3 weeks!).

    Had a couple of meals in Casa Pedro Santiago which were very good and Pedro never fails to bring something different out to impress you.  His speciality tuna is lovely and I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.  Other people obviously agreed as the restaurant was full in the evenings.

    We also ate at the Harbour Club a few times and as always had a lovely meal with lovely fresh vegetables.  We enjoyed the live entertainment and Triple A were fab!

    We were impressed with the new places on the road to the beach ie. tapas bar and crepe place.  A nice addition especially if you are down on the beach for the day.

    Thought the village was busy and it was great to see - keep it up as can't wait until our next visit in February. :D

  • Yes you do that - I would recommend it.  She has a lovely range of tapas and some daily specials.  Also when you just have a drink there, she gives you a little bit of something with it.  Very nice - lovely tortilla and we had something called Galacia pie (I think) it was like a little pasty with tuna and veg inside - lovely!  It is nice to have something so close to the beach as it had gone run down when the beach was closed.  Lets hope it continues.

  • Got back yesterday after 2 lovely weeks in LG!  Hotel LG looks much better and Friday was great in the Plaza with Old Dogs New Tricks.  Tried Bar El Sangria and the G & Ts were so good and looked amazing.  Spent an evening up at Playa Del Arena for the tapas and wine tasting - it  was excellent!  Met lots of regulars at El Sombrero who are nice - can only say roll on next April.

  • Just got back at 1am this morning from 2 weeks at El Sombereo - been coming back there for 8 years now, what a fantastic holiday we both had, weather was so hot!! met up with some old friends again and it was great - can't wait to see you all next year???  Great food especially the Canarian resturant at the top of the hill, the look on husband's face and also M's when they brought out their beef chop - it was priceless.
    Just to let everyone know in Los. Gigantes the weather back here in the West Country is sunny but cold, my feet are freezing. See you soon..

  • Drene- When you said "Canarian Restaurant" did you mean El Estero?

  • Will definitely try El Estero in April - used to go a few years ago before and after the big block went up - it was good then too.
