Description: With incomparable views over the Atlantic Ocean, the hotel houses a unique restaurant, "El Sitio", exquisite in its content and in its cuisine, where unique and innovative flavours, heady scents and subtle nuances come together in a cuisine that combines a century local gastronomy with international influences, offered within sumptuous stays, where the local chromatic richness enhances a wide collection of art where amazing chandeliers, delicate porcelains from the India Company, rare furniture, exquisite clocks and an elegant tapestry, show in this century the best of the gracious lifestyle of the XVII and XVIII century. Indeed, every day, breakfast, lunch and dinner are warm moments of coming together in this restaurant, with its bar-cafetería, which turns from half past seven in the morning until late at night into a meeting point for local society and our distinguished guests.

“Tapas in the bar”
Reviewed 5 April 2014

We went to Hacienda to sit in the bar and have some tapas. We visited twice in our 2 weeks in Tazacorte. The tapas menu is small but everything we sampled was delicious. The local wine was reasonably priced and good. The setting out in the courtyard was lovely.

But what really made a visit to the bar special was the staff, all very friendly and efficient - in fact the best service we experienced on La Palma. All the staff were lovely but I have to make a special mention of Angelino and Christopher who were superb.

“not worth the effort”
Reviewed 28 February 2013

this place is well appointed, beautifully furnished, the service was ok ,no more than that, the meal was to say the least average and very pricey for the area, we would not go back or recommend it to anyone who liked good food rather than plenty of it very disappointing really.

Dear client,

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback on TripAdvisor. We were of course most sorry to read your comments regarding our restaurant, as surprising our guests with delicous meals and offering excellent quality service is our main goal.

We herewith would like to inform that, since the moment you wrote your comment on the 28th of February 2013 and published one and a half years later(¿?), things have changed a lot in our restaurant. Our new Chef is a great success. His specialty is combining the modern gastronomy with the typical Canarian gastronomy and by offering original dishes prepared with fresh products from La Palma we are exceeding our guests´ expectations.

We hope to welcome you again in a near future and to be able to change your opinion about our unique restaurant.

With best and sunny regards from La Palma,

Restaurante El Sitio
