The best places to eat in Tenerife, Spain.

If you are on a Tenerife holiday then here is your ultimate guide to the best places to eat – from breakfast to dinner and with all the ice cream you could wish for in between.


  • Lowrys Café Bar, Playa de las Americas

This great little café is just back from the seafront in Playa de las Americas and is the perfect place to stop for breakfast before a day at the beach. If you’re missing home, then you can pick up a full English breakfast, or if you fancy something a little lighter, why not try the pancakes or fresh fruit.

  • Harriet’s Tea Room, Costa Adeje

If you are craving a proper English cup of tea then this is the place to go. It might be a bit indulgent, but you are on holiday, so make sure you try one of their amazing cakes, too! You can even get a sandwich to take away for lunchtime at the beach.

The cuisine ranges from traditional Canarian tapas to fresh seafood to Italian pastas, with everything in between. There is often entertainment in the evenings and the staff will welcome you like old friends.

  • Thai Botanico, Playa de las Americas

This stunning restaurant is a luxurious option for a special meal out for occasions and birthdays.
