Where Tenerife eating out was best for seafood and fresh fish

Tenerife eating out for seafood and delicious desert used to be very pleasant at the rustic Tenerife restaurant Restaurante Tambo. However, it changed owners again in Spring 2018 is now called Restaurante Marlin.

Marlin is the second owner after Tambo's.

Not to forget were its peaceful surroundings by rough seas of Atlantic waves and great vibes.

Anyway lets now give credit to the old Restaurante Tambo or Tambos.

Best enjoyed on the veranda as depicted beside.

In the past, the quality and good standards of the original owner were taken over by a good family, while staff brought in refreshing novelties with a happy flair of progress. 

Please check it out for yourself... The previous owners of the original Restaurante Tambo whom I met a while ago were positive. They believed that the quality of the cuisine was unchanged. That was before 2018.

I know a young, Cuban doctor who is a GP in Puerto de la Cruz. This beautiful medical general practitioner endorsed the Tambo place for its fresh seafood, always. She and a friend wouldn't have their Vieja which is a local fish, their Dorada or any other anywhere else in town, she told me.

This terrace of Restaurant Tambo gives you a lovely sight of the ocean and a stunning view Playa Jardin.

You often spot a red danger flag on top of rocks while at Tambo's fish restaurant for Tenerife eating out. The red alert is meant for swimmers by the seashore and for fishing folk as well.

However, some tourists had climbed some rocks opposite Tambo's restaurant. Later we spotted their rods for fly fishing, nevertheless. However insiders, such as the staff
of Tambo's know that the good spots for Tenerife fishing are hidden behind their restaurant. That is also part of the so called Punta Brava side which is off the beaten track.

    Restaurante Tambo is under new management from what I've learned when I met its previous owners. Not only a new chef may have brought some changes to this former superb seafood restaurant of Tenerife. I didn't have the chance to test this off lately myself.

    However, I didn't see the name Tambo in big letters on the building when I passed by early in May 2016.  It's still on all menu cards, though.

      Tambos is now called Restaurante Marlin since about April 2018.
    have not seen any staff or owners of Restaurante Tambos there. I was going to order the Pasta Seafood that was so delicious at Tambos. I wasn't happy with the way it looked with scarce seafood for example when I saw it on a person's plate at Restaurante Merlin in September 2018. It seemed to be most economical for Euro 13, though

    Anyway again in 2022, I wondered if the fame of Tambo's restaurant for its fish in Tenerife hadn't changed. Why? A friend and I went there for a drink. Hardly any customers were there. However, a new place next door called Pfälzer Stübchen had many. You should find out yourself why those people seemed to ignore Restaurante El Marlin. The coffee was very good, though. Also, the price of the tiny coke was worth the ocean view.
