Expert review of La Tasquita de Nino

Good home cooking in the former village post office and tobacconists.

I first discovered Nino's back in 2004 and have been recommending him ever since. Using fresh, local ingredients Nino recreates his grandmother's cooking in the 18th-century house in which she raised him.

Food and drink: 

It's traditional Canarian cuisine with dishes such as albóndigas (meatballs), morcilla (sweet black pudding) and conejo en salmorejo (rabbit stew) as well as a good range of tapas including a sizeable vegetarian selection. Nino has a surprisingly good wine menu too.

Ambience: 

Whenever I go there it's predominantly locals and the handful of visitors who have discovered, and can find the place. It's a nice romantic atmosphere beneath the beamed ceiling with low background music.

Service: 

Expect menu advice and history from the smiling Nino.

Location: 

It's hidden away in a narrow back street in the village of San Miguel de Abona.

Price advice: 

Starters are on average 5 euros, and main courses 10 euros.
