Expert review of Restaurant Casa Museo del Campesino
Although this place is very popular with tourists, including bus groups, I think it does a great job of providing a real flavour of some of the best island cuisine and it is very conveniently located within the fine house museum of the same name. It is fairly formal, with starched white tablecloths, particularly considering that the restaurant is only open for lunch, but the dishes are very reasonably priced and I have always found the service charming.
There are lovely twists on some of the more predictable, Spanish menus, showcasing some of the best and most unusual local dishes, and - as you might expect from this restaurant in the middle of the wine region - some very good island wines.
I would suggest you go for something a little unusual here – some typically rustic dishes that are in keeping with the peasant theme of the museum. Hearty Canarian soup to start with is a winner, particularly if you are very hungry. As a main, goat or rabbit would be my recommendations, followed by the pumpkin compote and lemon sorbet, a surprisingly good combination.
This is a restful spot, with white decor and some hanging plants, although it is a little sterile.
The service is of a very high standard and befitting a much more expensive restaurant.
It's on the lower floor of the Casa Museo del Campesino (House Museum of the Rural Worker), on a main road between two villages.
The prices are incredibly reasonable, particularly when you consider their quality. Main courses are between 7 euros and 15 euros.
There really isn't much to choose from between any of the tables here.
