Places to eat


Me and my family are thinking about going to Tenerife in the area of Costa del Silencio and was wondering what there is to do around there as well as some of the restaurants near by with price guildlines

Costa del Silencio was a originally a little fishing village, but it has now grown quite a lot. There is still the fishing harbor with the daily fresh fish and colorful fishing boats, you can also go on boat trips from there.

There are plenty of shops and restaurants, full scale of prices from a good evening meal out to snacks.

Good titsa bus service.

Just in case you book Costa del Silencio and get a surprise when you get there and find no harbour...the fishing village part with the boat trips and lots of good restaurants is Las Galletas just next to Costa del Silencio.

Costa del Silencio doesn't offer much in the way of traditional Canary culture but it is quite liked by British visitors. It has no proper beach but is popular with divers. There is a tennis court and bowling green at Happy Days and Coral Mar Square is mostly used by the British ex-pats, it has a fish and chip shop an English tea rooms and a couple of bars. Further along the road a couple more places to eat including a Chinese takeaway a few more bars, a hairdressers post office and vets. There are two supermarket and several charity and second-hand shops.

Costa del Silencio its name means “Coast of Silence” but with regular flights arriving and departing from the nearby Reina Sofía airport this is not exactly an accurate description.

As Gusto said the best restaurants, fishing trips and the daily fish market are in Las Galletas which depending where you are looking to stay is between at 15 - 30 minute walk away.

My honest opinion is that Las Galletas and Costa Silencio generally aren´t particularly attractive and, as Aguilas points out, they do suffer from frequent aircraft noise. On the plus side though eating out costs are very reasonable.

I think you might prefer Playa de Las Americas - there are plenty of nice areas to choose from..
