something a bit different to eat

  • On the way back from San Juan market today stumbled across a new eating place called Snack Bar Ja-rro, near the Alteza supermarket, serving food that's disappeared from the Los Gigantes/Playa de la Arena area. If your a fan of Cachapas, Arepas, Pinchitos, and Montaditos give it a go, very tasty and good value. Menu's only in Spanish.

  • Yes, this used to be called Punchinella's (not sure of spelling) and is a welcome change.

  • Me again. A few comments. How is blue martini doing? Why does  Fishermens Inn not change its menu or put on some specials? Why do some Spanish-owned bars charge tourist prices.  Black beach bar is good. Fresh food and great peroni.  Does anyone have news of Klaus after his sad loss?  Thank you.

  • Blue Martini is trying very hard. Paco is a lovely helpful and attentive young man. Learning off his father. The food is very good, however it is not the cheapest on the coast. They do a filleted Lenguado (sole) with prawns and mussels that is immersed in a tasty cream sauce that is a bit special.

  • Ate at Blue Martini Saturday night with friends and had that very dish Edward Bear - it was delicious. Good service,  varied menu, bit pricey. Have you tried Alfonso's chicken salad? Excellent and such good value
