Formerly the fabulous and famed Pato de Oro Restaurant, this is a great place to enjoy Tenerife tapas in a spacious and impressive venue offering service with a personal touch and great Spanish food. You can sit in, or eat out on the terrace.
For those of you who don't know, tucking into tapas is a traditional Spanish way of eating. The idea is to select a range of small dishes from the menu, having a little bit of this and a little bit of that.
But as Tapas Pata de Oro's slogan quite rightly points out, this place is about 'more than just tapas'. A cool, relaxed environment has been created with a strong emphasis on hospitality and great value for money.
To complement the tapas there is an a la carte menu which includes some great specials made by Alex the chef. His Lamb cooked Catalan-style is a firm favourite as is the crispy duck.
At this Tenerife tapas restaurant you'll find pimientos padron (small green peppers cooked in olive oil and sea salt), a variety of fish and seafood, meatballs in a rich tomato sauce and patatas bravas (fried potatoes in a hot sauce) or papas arrugadas (Canarian potatoes with their skins on boiled in salt) as well as goats cheese in a honey and tomato salsa. All lip-smackingly delicious.
When it comes to ordering, have a look at what you fancy and go for it. You can stagger your order to get a feel for the size of the portions and then if you're still hungry keep going. Friendly staff will lend a helping hand with the menu if you're in any doubt.
The food at Tapas Pata de Oro is so good, it's no wonder it has a reputation as being one of the best places for tapas in Tenerife. There are also some set tapas menus if you prefer to leave the decision-making to someone else. They can cater for large groups, parties, kids and you can even order tapas to take-away... how cool!
The restaurant is popular, so it might be a good idea to book using the E Mail above(right), particularly on Thursday evening when the sound of live acoustic guitar adds to the ambience.
