We were recommended to visit Carambola by the owners of our holiday accommodation, Jean & Alan, some years ago and we have been back at least 5 times each holiday. It is that good, family run and welcoming. Traditional Tenerifian food and also fabulous specialities. Please try pappas Carambolas also ensalada de casa. We will be there again in approx.... More

This is a tapas restaurant, which serves excellent food & lots of it, lovely white white, it seems to be up a hill in the middle of a small village, we visited with some Spanish friends of ours, we would never have found it on our own

Have eaten here for two nights. Both meals were fabulous. Sorry, we ate the salad too quickly to take a photo. The staff did everything to help us as we are not well versed in Spanish. But they had an English menu and with their patience we we were able to order some amazing food. Best two meals we had... More

Had a lovely meal here last night - ordered 4 tapas between 2 as we were hungry - 3 would have been plenty! English menu made choosing easy. Cod with sweet potato in tomato sauce lovely (I think it was sweetened ordinary potato though because of the colour). Including a glass of Rioja & a beer 25 euros. Will be... More

Excellent restaurant, always pretty busy, in a small street. Typical Canarian food, large portions and good price (40€ for 3 adults, tapas, beverages, dessert and coffee included) . We discovered it last year and went back this year several times. Very warm and welcoming people. A place not to miss!

A lovely little tapas bar/restaurant run by a husband and wife team. Good variety of home cooked food. It's mainly locals/expats because it's out of the way and not easy to find. From Thursday - Sunday you need to get here before 8pm or you'll have to queue (and they don't take reservations). It's best in a group because there's... More

The restaurant has a very basic style and decoration, but with a distinct ambiance. A homely atmosphere. Helpful service and menues in German and English were quite useful for people who are not fluent in Spanish and not used to eating tapas. We had three different tapas plates to share between 4 people: tomato salad with tuna and onion, cod... More

Bring cushions to sit on, because this great little restaurant is known for its food, not its comfort. Food was truly like mama makes because mama made it.

A family run restaurant serving lovely food at a good price. The portions were quite generous - we had three tapas between two. Owner spoke some English, which was helpful.
