There have been many nice compliments on the forum recently about a new bar La Amazona which has recently opened www.losgigantes.com/board/index.php?topic=629.0so I decided to pay them a visit to find out for myself.

La AmazoniaLa Amazona, a chill out bar, opened on Friday 6th July to offer residents and visitors to the area a place to go to relax, there are no tv’s, no sport, no pool tables and no karaoke. Just luxury comfortable furnishings, wooden tables, sofas, candles and soft lighting; so it’s not difficult to chill out, listen to good music and enjoying the views.

La Amazona, formerly an Austrian restaurant Sissi’s, is above Tránsito supermarket, San Francisco. Turn off at the roundabout near the police station.

Glen and MargiGlenn Salt, from Essex, and Margi (Margarita) from La Laguna have taken over the bar together after each running their own businesses in Tenerife. For two years Glenn owned Ritmo, the disco pub in Puerto de la Cruz and Margi, for 17 years, was the proprietress of a restaurant Los Abrigos.  They specialise in a good selection of tapas cooked fresh daily by Margi.

There’s no shortage of parking, especially in the evening when the supermarket is closed. The bar and terraces comfortably seat around 70 people.  

The bar is open from noon to around 02.00 seven days a week.
