Book a an early evening terrace table and watch the sky turn a glory of fiery red as the sun slips behind the island of La Gomera.
If you like a bit of starched cotton and polished silverware in your dining venue then La Vieja would be a wise choice. Especially if you've got fish on your mind. Not only do you get some of the best seafood in Tenerife, quirky mariner-themed decor and on-the-ball waiting staff, you also get an eyeful of Atlantic Ocean and La Gomera while you chow down.
La Caleta, like Los Abrigos, is a fish-lover's haven. And I don't mean as in pet goldfish fans, I mean if you utterly, seriously and psychotically LOVE eating fresh fish. There are currently five seafood restaurants within one square kilometre, and although the others are certainly notable for their produce, La Vieja is certainly one of the best for style, service and decor. Mind you, you pay for it. This is not a cheap restaurant, but on the other hand you don't get a cheap experience. You get very knowledgable wine waiters, silver service-like waiting on, and food that could make a grown man weep.
The Salmon Lasagna has a loyal local following, as does the Sama Roquera (a meaty, locally-netted fish). The array of seafood choices on the menu can be dizzying, but if you prefer the pick and point method, there's also plenty to whet your appetite in the iced display. If you're looking for paella, you could do a lot worse than La Vieja. Their own special version has a few surprises. Non-fishy types are also catered for and can choose from a small selection of meat dishes including Fillet Steak and Duck. It's also pleasing to see that La Vieja supports the island wine industry with a lengthy list of Tenerife labels to choose from.
La Vieja is a venue for special occasions... class - just pure class.
