Expert review of Aristides

Tasty fish on one of Tenerife's most picturesque plazas.

I never miss an opportunity if I'm in Garachico to grab a table on the terrace of Aristides, order a plate of chopitos and sit back and watch the world go by - bliss.

Food and drink: 

It's traditional Canarian cuisine with fresh fish and grilled meats a speciality.

Recommended dishes: 

I love their chopitos - tiny deep fried squid which are like whitebait. The lapas (limpets) and the mussels are also very good. Meat eaters should try their goat which is tender and flavoursome.

Ambience: 

It's informal and unhurried. A favourite with visitors and locals but less so with day trippers who tend to stick to the restaurants on the promenade.

Service: 

The service can be slow. Not the place to come if you're in a hurry.

Location: 

It's in Garachico's picturesque centre, opposite Plaza de La Libertad and alongside the 17th-century mansions of the Counts of La Gomera.

Price advice: 

Starters average at 5 euros, main courses average 11 euros.
