“Unforgettable experience! A 'must do' when in Puerto de la Cruz!”
Review of Abaco

It is a truly beautiful and a little hidden gem in Puerto de la Cruz. We did not have a car so we walked up the hill to get there, in a lovely, quiet area of Puerto de la Cruz. After arriving we were welcomed by the staff and were allowed to walk around the premises, the building is an old, stunning mansion that opens up to a beautiful garden where we were sat for the meal. Both the restaurant manager and the waiter waiting on us that night were extremely attentive, helped us with the flamenco show booking and were coming over to talk us through the food, have a little funny chit chat in between dishes as well as told us a little bit about the place, the food and the dancers. We were also introduced to one of the dancers before the show- little did we know at that point that he was like somebody taken out of an authentic flamenco heaven The meal was very tasty- we had prawns for starter and a fish in Madeira sauce. The show was like no dancing show I have ever seen before- energetic, beautiful, mesmerizing and unforgettable! Post the show the manager had a drink with us and told us a little bit about his history in Puerto de la Cruz. Time flew and we did not even realise when the evening went by as it was so pleasant! I’d like to say huge thank you to the manager, dancers and the staff- especially the funniest waiter imitating Scottish accent. An amazing evening and experience for me!

Visited Abaco to watch the flamenco show. Was a brilliantly surreal experience, the venue was amazing and the dancers were fantastic. Loved all the costumes and the dancing was brilliant. I’d highly recommend!

Incredible. Abaco only holds about 50-60 people so the ambiance is intimate. You are so close to the dancers that the energy of the performance is infectious. Mondays or Thursday evenings. Just a short taxi ride from the center of Puerto de la Cruz.
The show lasts 1 1/2 with a 15 minute interval.
The music and dancing is a bit loud - but needs to be for Flamenco.
You can dine downstairs before or after the show.
Good idea to book in advance.

This is by all ways of measures a fantastic place. We are so glad that the owner of Abaco is willing to let us experience how an old Canarian villa looks like. Abaco is really three things. It is the villa, were you can go around for your own and just enjoy, it is the lovely garden were can walk around with a glass of wine and (again) enjoy. Finally the restaurant. The restaurant is good, but not fantastic. Let us say 4,5. But the total experience is so unique, this is a 5+ experience. Do not miss it.

I recently ordered a Gin Fizz which is normally a long cocktail in a high ball glass. I was disappointed to be served the drink in a small cocktail glass, more suited to a Daiquiri or a Margarita. How did the waiter get gin, soda and lemon juice in such a small glass! Disappointing and not good value. The place lacks the atmosphere of previous visits.
