Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Very busy place, especially at the weekend. Very friendly staff. Their lack of English and our limited Spanish didn’t stop us from enjoying delicious food. The fried octopus was amazing! We also had the fish churros and tortilla. All very nice. The cheesecake was superb...too. Half a litre of wine and 2 coffees on top of that and the bill was around €50. Recommended.More

Simple, fresh and delicious seafood. Cosy vibe with best sea view. Very nice mountain road. Complicated parking. Highly reccomended.

An experience of true fresh local seafood cooked and served by simple clean authentic people. 4 people enjoyed delicious food and drinks and paid less than 80€. Incredible.

we love Taganana very much. We always visited other restaurants and decided on this one. Standing in line spoiled the impression a bit. But, after the ocean and the walk, the food was great. If you wake up in this area, I recommend

heard a lot and decided to try. not impressed at all. now in more detail. It is located in a good location on the shore.. we ordered octopus with red pepper, canarian potatoes and fried fish, as well as mussels. the biggest disappointment was the...octopus, it was not very soft. the fish is very dry. maybe we were unlucky, there are a lot of people there on Sunday.. I would not advise with friends did not come. There are many good and tasty places in the vicinityMore

Traditional spanish restaurant without any posh interieur etc. Here the focus is on the food and this is excellent. When you are so close by the sea you have to try the fish of the day or the other specialities from the daily menu. The...service was super friendly and the view to the ocean is the cherry on the cake. During the weekend it can be very full from 1-4pm.More

Popular tour restaurant offering great value. Menu del dia just 12 Euros which included a memorable garlic oil dip for the local potatoes! The chilled rose hit the spot. Thank you Casa Africa!

Visited here on a Bus Trip. The Guide on the coach said the Potatoes were the best ever (better than steak, caviar etc and the fish was outstanding). HOW WRONG THEY WERE. The potatoes were small over boiled in their skins. I have had Tenerife...Potatoes before but these were the worst ever. Dried up and leathery The fish must have died several weeks before. No flesh and dry. As you can see from the photo it was served with no garnish or side dish. The venue is just a bare bones shack. There is no style. The staff are slow serving due to other bus trips pre ordering the food. Although I didn't have the salad I did see it on another table and it did look nice. But included strawberries and garlic? But that's all I can say Expect to be disappointed and underwhelmedMore

This is not food, be ready to eat rubbish! NO fresh fish, expired beer, hard bread... if you are looking for typical canary food, it is not your place...at least this is not overpriced... believe me, choose another restaurant!

We were recommended to eat lunch here by our local tour guide, while touring the northeast of the island. we were an organised tour with a local tour company, and as such, it seems a special rate is offered if the tourist go in for...lunch. This often makes me dubious as to what we will receive, but having done a similar thing on Madeira, and being very satisfied, we thought it was worth a try. Well, what a lunch! Water and wine on the table, ( OK, not the best wine I've had, but it got better!) baskets of bread, plates of cheese with a garlic and oil dip. This was followed by dishes of Canarian potatoes, huge plates of mixed salad, and the fish! Wow! Locally caught, deep fried and absolutely delicious! And then everyone got a banana! A real canarian, locally sourced meal - wonderful! And only €11 each! So, if you're in Taganana on a trip, and they recommend here, go in! It's certainly not posh, you definitely know you're in a fishing community, but it's a good experience. Give it a try!More

The way they cook the fish is GREAT! We really enjoyed it. We also ordered papas arrugadas and they were a lot for the price you pay. Their mojo is also very nice.
