We visited La Carta on a wet Friday evening. Shared Prawns in Parmesan Sauce as a starter and certainly made us forget about the weather! Lamb Chops from Segovia was a special for the day and tempted both of us to have them as a main course. Good decision! Very tasty. Desserts were Chocolate Brownie with Passion Fruit Ice Cream...

This was probably the best meal we ate in Tenerife. A small restaurant in the old town. They managed to squeeze us in at a table inside, apparently there is a terrace but all the tables were booked. Friendly Spanish owner and attentive German waitress. The menu was extensive with local choices. We started with a delicious salad with a... More

Food was OK - average at best, given the price. Service was geologically slow. Stuck by the front door, with traffic noise through the open door making conversation difficult, despite having been promised a roof terrace table. Would not recommend.

Good morning Mr. Adam I do not understand the people who in the restaurant are not able to say what they want. However they feel strong putting negative reviews on an internet platform. If you wanted terrace, say it!!!, If the weather allowed it and it was no rain you could come up to the roof perfectly. The noise from... More

It's definitely worth seeking out this quaint restaurant. Brilliant for meat lovers, interesting menu not quite so great for vegetarian choices. Very popular with regular customers.

We stumbled upon this restaurant last night and were impressed by the choice available and quality of the food. We didn't realise there was an upstairs terrace and ate in the restaurant downstairs which was small but cosy. We had the house special of black spaghetti and prawns, sea bream with risotto and lamb chops and desserts - apple crepes... More

I searched online for a quality restaurant and decided to try La Carte. We weren't disappointed and thought the good was beautifully presented and incredibly tasty. It's off the beat and track and away from the crowds. There were perhaps 3 other couples having dinner on the roof top terrace and the whole experience was atmospheric and romantic. The couple...

We went there on Tripadvisor recommendation and was not disappointed, food was lovely and the 2 owners could not be more welcoming or more helpful. We both had the daily specials, fish with risotto and pork with a fig sauce. I would recommend sitting upstairs on the terrace.

We went to almost every top rated restaurant in Puerto de la Cruz during our stay there. This is a really good place to eat. Food was above average. Special recommendation would be the carpaccio. The sangria was by far the strongest one we had, consisting of only rum, cointreau and red wine. Excellent service!

Thank Plankanssons
