Expert review of La Cuchara de Victor Cruz

Gourmet Canarian cuisine from one of the island's top chefs.

Victor Cruz has been winning plaudits for his creative cuisine for the past eight years and deservedly so. His menu is fresh, original and a favourite with Santacruceros. If you want a taste of the best that the Canaries can produce, Victor Cruz should be on your itinerary.

Food and drink: 

Fresh local ingredients and traditional Canarian and Spanish recipes are fused with the latest culinary trends to produce a unique menu brimming with flavour and imagination. The extensive wine list has labels from across the Canaries and the peninsula.

Recommended dishes: 

Personally, I think the morcilla con queso de cabra (sweet black pudding with melted goats' cheese) is incredible.

Ambience: 

It's a little formal for my liking but that's partly to do with it being a city centre restaurant. It's popular with the business sector and the well heeled of the city.

Service: 

Attentive and formal - it's first class.

Location: 

It's in a small, modern plaza close to shops and nightlife.

Price advice: 

Expect to pay in the region of 35 to 40 euros per person for three courses.

La Cuchara de Víctor Cruz in Plaza Hermanos Dorta is moving to new premises closer to the city centre and so is temporarily closed. In the meantime Víctor is serving fantastic tapas dishes from his Bístro de Víctor Cruz (beneath Hotel Contemporaneo on Calle Doctor Guigou, open Mon-Sat from 1pm to midnight, closed Sunday; www.victorcruzrestaurantes.com).

Watch this space for the date and details of the new opening of La Cuchara de Víctor Cruz.
