There is a famous English saying, "if you can find it, you can have it!" So, this month I want to tell you about wonderful eatery I highly recommend you visit - especially if you like fine food!
Just across the road from the famous Los Cristianos Sunday and Tuesday markets is the apartment complex Comodoro. Go past the barrier, up a few steps to the Reception area and you will find this hidden gem - The Ocean View Restaurant and Bar has been there for quite a few years but recently has been taken over by Belgian master chef Yuri, who has created a wonderful restaurant, open to everyone!
We were lucky enough to visit this lovely little restaurant at lunchtime (very few places cater for clients at lunchtime), but this restaurant, by reputation alone, attracts people to its intimate inside or outside areas to enjoy a wide range of wonderful dishes.
The House Speciality, when we visited, was Meatballs in a beer sauce but I can inform readers that every day there is a different menu (apart from À La Carte). How many restaurants offer this? The Ocean View also offers a superb selection of hors d´oeuvres, main courses – meat or fish - but their Specialities are Sole Meunière, Goat’s cheese with bacon, or Filet de sole à l'ostendaise. The desserts are superb too (and rival the reputation of Belgian chocolate!), so, if you love good food, you are in for a wonderful (and, hopefully, romantic!) meal!
I personally had the delicious portions of salmon in a purée. Belgian cooking has always been renowned as being superb and now, we in Tenerife have been very fortunate that someone has brought a taste of Belgian cuisine to the island.
The owner of The Ocean View tells me that they will soon be opening a 2nd restaurant (in Faňabe) for lovers of fine dining - this certainly must be one to look out for!
So, head for The Ocean View today, where parking is easy, and you are guaranteed a wonderful experience, great staff, great food and great eating!
