Restaurante La Casona del Vino - Tenerife
We also personally recommend the Arroz Caldoso - a gorgeous rice stew - and possibly the best version of it you're ever likely to taste in Tenerife!

Directions to Restaurante La Casona del Vino
This unassuming Tenerife restaurant off the beaten path is one of those rare gems that very few holidaymakers know about, but one that once discovered, is always revisited.
Think of your favourite restaurant back home, serving all things British at reasonable prices... this is the Canarian equivalent! It has that air of familiarity about it; family owned, friendly service, clean straightforward decor and tantalising aromas wafting through. But with all due respect to traditional English fayre, and with a menu offering Canarian, Spanish and international meals, the food served at this restaurant in Tenerife is guaranteed to excite your taste buds a lot more!
A glance at the menu will show that all the main food groups of the Canarian/Spanish diet are represented - salads, meat, fish, vegetables and rice. However, it's those 'secretive' blends of herbs, peppers and spices handed down through the generations that bring these staples to life. Combine that with an exquisite presentation style and you're sure to hear the clichés, 'that looks good' and 'that was to die for', only probably in Spanish!
Here at My Guide we have our favourite Canarian food so to help take away the 'fear factor' of dining outside the resorts, here goes. For starters, share a bowl of Pimientos Padrón and see how quickly these devilishly moreish morsels disappear. Then move onto the chefs scrambled egg (not a mistake!) with oyster-mushrooms, king prawns and asparagus.
After a break, the 'main' event. There's lots to go at but the 'Tenderloin Kisses' is the dish that people who haven't ordered it look at with envious eyes.
If you're looking to 'go native' and dine in a locals' favourite, step beyond the tourist area and experience Restaurante La Casona del Vino on the outskirts of Candelaria. Isn't it time you pushed the boundaries?
