The depicted Tapas food is the kind I normally like best, as it is served in a Bodega which is part of a beautiful monastery set-up.
What Tapas are depicted?
The mushroom dish with its sauce may be called a 'cazuela tapa' which also may be a tiny helping of meat stew, fish or vegetable dish. All come with sauce. The Olives are part of 'Pinchos' or Pintxos. All small edible things with a toothpick in the middle also fall under this category of 'nibble tapas' food. This is most common with bite size chunks of varied cheese.
This former cafe bar restaurant of La Orotava has definitely innovated with its Tapas and Spanish style Pintxos.
Indeed, that's the case all over Spain for socializing and business. It includes Spanish speaking South
America. It's done in bars, tascas,
cafés, bodegas, bistros or in restaurants. Such parties often take more
than an hour.
Small Tapa appetizers or cocktail tapas. Usually, they may also be found under starters in good Spanish or Tenerife restaurants.
El Sauzal celebrates Dia Mundial de la Tapa (World Tapa Day)

This custom has come to an end, unfortunately.
Certainly, food for tapas is
ideal for a special occasion, such as a wine tasting venue. Needless to
say, Tenerife cheese is always in big demand for such short bites to
eat. On the other hand, Bar Tapas food is ready made on stand-by.
See many Tapas with photos described in detail at the legendary Taperia Punto de Encuentro Unfortunately though, you can't sample the Taperia's Tapas anymore, as the owners moved back to mainland Spain.
By the way, you may ask kindly for any of the items listed when a place doesn't offer Tapas. Some bars or small restaurants go out of their way to serve you what you want, as seen below by the seaside of Las Aguas of San Juan de la Rambla.
Not more than for starters meaning about €3 to €12.50 depending on the class of the restaurant.
Here an example of the latest Tapa route the so called PATAPA XV of Los Realejos 2018 where I started to sample the first Tapa at El Tomate Gastrobar that informs all its guests about new rules of the contest.
Mind that Tapas that won prizes during Tapa Routes are normally one-offs. Just about every bar in Tenerife took home a trophy at a Tapa Route competition. However, it will seldom offer the winning Tapa to you in the future, as it was only for a promotion.
