The best fresh fish and seafood. Exceptionally friendly staff. An all-round good experience. San Miguel de Tajao is a little fishing village along the coast from Tenerife South airport.

Description
Restaurant in the fishing village of San Miguel de Tajao. No menu (!), you just order from the fresh catch that is laid out in the display... so doubt they will have a website.
