We find it cheaper in Tenerife than the UK, win win.  Have a good look around at the menus whilst you are there to consider your budget.  Go for house wine, rather than a named wine.   Enjoy yourselves.

La Bodequita behind Charles Beastro is very reasonable. Totally unpretentious, which is nice, about 30E for 2 mains with a couple of drinks each.

La Bodeguita is always good I find , the best value Restaurants tend to be a short walk up into Santiago . My particular favorite is the italian Domu Mia , but I haven't been since the refurb in October .

Casa Pedro on the hairpin bend at the bottom of PS, it is always reliable, not amazing but good. The canarian stew is a speciality at 9.5 Euros. Family run, and the first restaurant in the area I believe. Oh, and views and sunset over Gomera, but best to book to get the window!

for us when we are in Tenerife one of the things we enjoy is good food at our favourite restaurants so when the exchange rate is poor and we have less euros we compromise by still going to the places we really like but then we have a takeaway or cooking ourselves on other nights.

yes I was interested to read that too, Asturias was a favourite of ours in the late 80's, the food was good and the staff really friendly then we didn't go to Tenerife for about 10 years and when we went back we went to Asturias and had a very mediocre meal there and the staff were miserable and never went back, perhaps we should give it another go, the prices look very reasonable

Does any of the local supermarkets do hot food to take away like rotisserie chicken etc

That would be very good if they did

Alfonso's bar/cafe, just down from 'Deli on the hill' does take away rotisserie chicken.
Deli on the hill does 'prepared meals' to take away.

Coming out on 19th for 8 nights - can't wait. ;D 8)

Bodequita do great takeaway pizza Georgie. I'm sure, as mentioned in previous posts, most of the restaurants do takeaway. Not all deliver though and I definitely don't think the  just eat concept has arrived in LG. Don't think I'd like it to either, would you?
