Expert review of Sabor Canario

A flavour of the Canaries in an historic venue in Tenerife's most aristocratic town.

I love taking people to Sabor Canario because it's such a wonderful courtyard setting in which they can try some of the most traditional Tenerife cuisine, such as gofio (a milled corn whose use pre-dates the Spanish conquest) and conejo en salmorejo (rabbit stew).

Food and drink: 

There are traditional and authentic Canarian dishes, a good choice of tapas starters and a nice wine list with local, La Orotava labels.

Ambience: 

A lovely courtyard setting gives an intimate ambience. It's informal and friendly and very busy with locals on Sunday lunchtimes and holidays.

Service: 

It's not the fastest but friendly and attentive. You'll need some Spanish to get by.

Location: 

It's in the charismatic courtyard of the 16th-century Hotel Rural Orotava in the beautiful old quarter.

Price advice: 

Starters/tapas start from 3-6 euros, main courses from 7-10 euros and desserts 2.60 euros.
