The place looks a bit run-down from the outside, also from the inside, but you shouldn't mind, as a.) it provides the Restaurant with a special charm and b.) it was the best seafood meal i had on the whole Island! They don't have a menu, you can only choose from what they actually caught in the ocean that day,... More

My wife's Spanish family live on the island and they recommended Casa Africa. They provide honest simple and fresh Canarian food. Its the best fish, papas arrugadas mojo (sauce/dip) I have had in all the years we have been coming to Tenerife. Its a busy place, but well worth making the amazing drive down to the coast to just beyond... More

We stopped here for a snack and a beer, had papas arrugadas and local fresh goat's cheese. Both were delicious and the mojo (sauce/dip) was incredible; such intense flavours, more so than other ones I've tried. Great location and delicious food, well worth a visit! P.S. pic shows half finished potatoes!

We stopped in for a bottle of wine and a snack. It does not look like much, but is settled across from the ocean with a beautiful view. There is no menu and the wine came in whatever bottle was available. Wine was better than many table wines and the food was tasty. Local olives, cheese, wine and seafood. Unique... More

Everything was great at Casa Africa. The stuff was friendly and the service was attentive. The fish was excellent and we could tell it was very fresh. I'd recommend the fish, the traditional potatoes cooked with salt and their colourful fruit-veg salad. The price was very fair too and the location is amazing, just by the ocean. I'd recommend it...

We had a salad (very tasty and interesting 'house' salad with tropical fruits), and each one of us got a main (Tuna fish in sauce, Fried Octopus, and a local fish,... More

Quite unique place in a small village with fresh and tasty seafood i.e. fish or octopus. There is no menu, the only choice we had was pescado (fish) or pulpo (octopus) +some salad of veg and fruits + papas arrugadas (typical Canarian potatos with very tasty mojo souces). The service was nice, but quite in a hurry due to crowd... More
