Food and drink
A selection of around 14 tapas dishes are lined up on the counter for you to choose from. I always find three or four is about the right amount for two people sharing. A choice of three or four local beers or wines are on offer. On my last visit I went for a chilled white El Grifo – the bodega and attached museum is only five minute's down the road, which is worth a visit before or after lunch.
Well, it has to be tapas....These are mostly fishy; there is not a lot for meat eaters or vegetarians.
Housed in a traditional Canarian building with authentic old artifacts on the wall, this place buzzes with mostly Spanish diners.
The service is a delight: all three waiters never seemed to stop smiling when I was here last. One even happily replaced our glasses of local white wine when I suggested they weren't dry enough.
It's within the House Museum of the Peasant Farmer, off a roundabout in the hamlet of San Bartolomé.
Each tapas dish is good value at 4 euros.
