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.
