  • Hello Lyn, I think that you may find that the restaurant is called Bodeguita.
    To the best of my knowledge Mariposa closed over two years ago.

  • Hi Lyn, thanks for that. We have been in the UK for the last seven weeks and it was closed when we left.
    Incidentally you do not have to shout or maybe you left your caps lock on.

  • I think it must be more recent than that as I returned to the UK on 13th August and it wasn't there when we left.  Nice to know there's another eatery to choose from next time though.

  • Well, Edward Bear, turtle  Lyn has every right to ?shout?as you say because you didn't know what you were talking about!!

    The new look Mariposa is a very welcome addition to the village, in my view, and, slowly, it is becoming very popular -  but maybe only with the 'chic' crowd as we residents like to be known!!! 

    So, should you be one of the crowd who visit every now and again, and then think they know everything, think again, please!!

  • Victor, having lived in the area for ten years and take UK holidays to see the family and avoid the heat of July and August as I said Mariposa had not reopened when we left for our UK holiday.
    Having patronised the old Mariposa, under the guardianship of  Billy Mac, I do know a little of what I am talking about.However I am not as presumptuous as yourself to consider myself as part of the "chic" crowd.
    I do not expect an apology so don't send one and next time you post get your brain in gear first.

  • Please correct this post if I am wrong but I believe the restaurant has been taken over by a french couple, John Eve and his wife.  Many of you will remember John Eve, the very tallented keyboard player who played many years ago at Paraiso del Sol.  He had the place packed to bursting every time he was on.  I also believe he is playing in his new restaurant.

  • Sorry, Edward Bear.  Brain wasn't in gear - mind you I question if a brain scan would find it anyway!!!!  Meant to write 'cheap' rather than 'chic' - but that refers only to the prices not the quality of the food, for that is first class.  Anyway, the first time I noticed it was open for business was, I think, about 13th August lunchtime, as friends and I ate there and they went home on August 16th.  Also, sad to report, they were subjected to a wanton act of vandalism a few days later when a glass pane got broken but nothing apparently stolen, only the sheer frustration of waiting for police and repairs to be carried out.

    In closing, I hope that you will find the menu tantalising and are able to enjoy a 'snack' or meal there during your next visit. 

    A good addition to the already widely available good eating establishments in Los Gigantes, Puerto de Santiago and Playa de la Arena.

  • I was actually chatting to the owner today and she was saying that everyting is made fresh and all pastries homemade. They also do weekly/nightly 3 course specials - I will try soon and report back. I also noticed that Saltzburg in Playa Arena has had a re-furb or been taken over (I had heard it was for sale) it is now called Incognito, great another place to try.

  • They are written on a board outside, I think this week it was tom & mozarrella salad, followed by a chicken course and desert, she said they change it, I think the special is on during day and evening.

  • Aha!!! - that explains why I didn't see it this year.  If it opened on 13th at lunchtime, I was sadly in an aeroplane somewhere over the Bay of Biscay en route to the UK.  Incidentally it was 38 degs when we left Tenerife and there was a huge groan on the plane when the pilot announced that the ground temperature at Luton was a sad and depressing 14 degs and chucking it down.  Made me want to turn the plane around again!

    I shall look forward to trying out the Mariposa's wares in 2011.

  • Just got back from LG.  This is the one restaurant that I absolutely must go to a couple of times each time I visit.  The quality of the food and the service is exceptional.  I have seen owners/employees of other restaurants in LG eating there.  Surely that says it all.

  • We didn't make it over to LG last year so we tried the Mariposa for the first time this year. What a great place! We were over for 16 days and ended up going 3 times as the food and service were so good. All fresh food and no awful mushy frozen veg. Everything cooked fresh, they don't serve chips and the children are not subjected to the dreaded '5' kids meals that nearly every restaurant offers (nuggets/fish fingers/frozen pizza/spag bol/burger and chips). Instead the children can have a half portion from the main menu.
    Anyway, give it a go, it's bloomin lovely :)
