Exploring Tenerife restaurants is a holiday adventure.
Some main Canary Island restaurants were discovered by myself while on the road doing market research for a Santa Cruz company.
I couldn't resist testing others, after they had been recommended by
friends. Also, it so happened later that Casa Nelson was very warmly praised by Clinica Arte Dental from Puerto de la Cruz. Once, its management even took its Russian patient the famous Baba Lena for lunch there.
Unfortunately, it happens that good chefs are leaving to move on.
Often, restaurants are passed on to new owners and or management. This could entail an unfortunate change of food quality.

To make a point to what I said just now is the following: I must mention a tiny bodega in this context, which I discovered in the Alfama in Lisbon. I went there almost 30 years ago. The food was good but, I don't recollect what I ate. What comes back in my mind, was its setting and its welcoming service which made me so happy. Restaurants on the biggest of all Canary Islands often leave similar memories.
