Tasty fish on one of Tenerife's most picturesque plazas.

I never miss an opportunity if I'm in Garachico to grab a table on the terrace of Aristides, order a plate of chopitos and sit back and watch the world go by - bliss.

Food and drink

It's traditional Canarian cuisine with fresh fish and grilled meats a speciality.

Recommended dishes

I love their chopitos - tiny deep fried squid which are like whitebait. The lapas (limpets) and the mussels are also very good. Meat eaters should try their goat which is tender and flavoursome.

Ambience

It's informal and unhurried. A favourite with visitors and locals but less so with day trippers who tend to stick to the restaurants on the promenade.

Service

The service can be slow. Not the place to come if you're in a hurry.

Location

It's in Garachico's picturesque centre, opposite Plaza de La Libertad and alongside the 17th-century mansions of the Counts of La Gomera.

Price advice

Starters average at 5 euros, main courses average 11 euros.
