Expert review of Los Gemelos
This is where I bring steak-eaters as it serves one of the best steaks in Puerto. The courtyard setting is very picturesque and very traditional, as is the menu.
It is typical Canarian cuisine featuring cuts of meat and fish dishes served with papas arrugadas and mojo (wrinkled potatoes with sauces). Not a good choice for vegetarians.
I like the succulent pork chops and the melt-in-the-mouth fillet steak in mushroom sauce.
It's informal, noisy and bustling with a queue for tables on Sunday lunchtimes and weekend nights. There are lots of families and big groups; predominantly locals.
The staff are efficient and friendly. If you haven't booked they'll squeeze you in but you might find service a bit slower than for those who have a reservation.
Tucked into two picturesque courtyards, it's behind a fairly anonymous façade in the back streets of the old town.
Starters cost on average 4.50 euros; main courses average 12 euros; sweets average 3 euros.
Sit either in the smoking or the non-smoking courtyard. Both are very pretty but the main courtyard is of course smoking - this is Spain.
