“WoW! Amazing! Fantastic! Awesome! Superb! The best food, drinks and service!”
Reviewed 25 July 2011

Everything about this restaurant was absolutely fantastic!

Slightly elevated above the street and looking down towards the sea, the atmosphere is great.
The chairs are comfortable and the menu is very extensive.
The service is amazing and the choice of wines is fantastic.

We loved this restaurant so much that we kept going back again and again and every dish we tried was superb!

One of the hardest things to do at this restaurant is to decide what to eat! There are so many tasty-sounding starters, pastas and main courses to choose from and they are all a different class from the standard food offered in most restaurants attached to beach-resorts! In particular, the quality of the food was top-notch and easily far above anything else available in Costa Adeje. In fact the quality of food served was of Michelin-Star standard and what you would expect to find in the finest London restaurants!

The speciality of the restaurant is a fillet steak from the "Heart of The Fillet", hence the restaurant's name and they really are superb quality steaks, cooked to perfection. But, in addition to the great choice of steaks, there are so many more things to choose - great pork fillet, chicken and pasta dishes - they have a menu on their web site that gives a reasonable idea of what's on offer, but in reality, the menu is far more extensive: http://www.caprirestaurantgroup.com/coeurdefilet/index.htm

But it's not just the choice of food that makes the restaurant so great - the delivery of amazing food with top quality accompaniments and presentation make for a great meal.

Amongst other things that we enjoyed....To start, the bruschetta with prawns, fresh mushrooms and tomato marmalade stood out - big prawns, wild mushrooms including Chaterelles and a slightly sweet tomato with a hint of chilli and garlic! My wife thought the creamy saffron risotto with prawns was divine!
For a main course, the pork fillet with mustard, mushrooms and cheese was outstanding - some of the tastiest and most tender pork fillet I have ever had! The star of the show, though has to be the very-reasonably-priced Chateaubriand. If you like good quality beef/steaks, this is to die for - served with an array of side accompaniments and several sauces and hand-carved/served at the table for that extra special touch!

The wine list is very extensive and caters for all regions of Spain. We tried some local Tenerife white wines, but really enjoyed the fine Ribero Del Duero red wines!

The final thing that made the meal perfect was the service! Absolutely perfect and meticulous from start to finish! On each occasion, we were served by the Head Waiter, Victor and he made sure that every single aspect of our dining experience was as enjoyable and pleasurable as possible. He went that extra mile to do things properly and to make our dining experience extra special!

The food is not expensive - it's maybe €1 per person more than the other similar restaurants, but given the quality, it is much better value. A three-course meal for two (excluding drinks) was around €70-€80!
The wine/drinks are a similar price to other restaurants, but if you want some outstanding wines, you can expect to pay quite a bit, but that's par for the course!

We went to seven or eight different restaurants in Costa Adeje and this was easily the best in every single way!
We look forward to going back again soon!!!

“need some quality meat?”
Reviewed 24 July 2011

Went twice and the chateaubriand on 2nd visit was absolutely brilliant. It was cut at the table, with the waiter making two plates for us. That was a nice touch. Service is good, mostly with a smile and a joke. No waiters trying agressively to get you inside, so thats usually a good sign.

Location is not the best as its located in a typical tourist street with shops and a gaming hall as a neighbour.

“So good we went back 3 times...”
Reviewed 19 July 2011

We stayed in Costa Adeje for our honeymoon..and soon hunted out the best restaurant! We went back 3 times in the 2 weeks we were there...service..fantastic...food..awesome! They were attentive..but not in your face and the food really does speak for itself! Dont go in looking for a bargain...but saying that...if we went to somewhere similar in England..we would pay more then 65 euro...and we didn't skimp! We spent our last night at Coeur de Filet..very romantic..did not disappoint! Loved it!!

“Didn't live up to high expectation”
Reviewed 18 July 2011

I read the reviews on this restraunt before flying to Tenerife, and due to the excellent reviews we decided to go. I am sad to say, it certainly did not live up to expectations. From abrupt service and over charging it was a disaster and nothing compared to the other available restraunts. When asked would it be possible to have chicken in the spagetti carbonara the waiter simply ' tutted ' and muttered ' whatever the customer is always right '. We also ordered 2 bottles of water between the 6 of us, as we only wanted a small amount each and when paying we realised we had been charged for 6 bottles, and then when we asked would it be possible to pay seperate they abruptly refused. The food was alright, but nothing too ' fabulous '. I don't normally review restraunts but I felt it a need to voice my opinion.

“Melt in your mouth steak”
Reviewed 29 June 2011

We booked a few days before and got a taxi from Los Cristianos (<10 Euros).

Ate on the terrace although inside looked pleasant. Garlic bread was a let down as I was expecting mucho garlic but French style bread was a tad dry with little garlic. But we went for the steak and it was fantastic. 4 of us ordered the Couer de Filet (17.50 Euros) with different sauces and varied degrees of cooking. Each steak was cooked to everybodies liking and the quality & taste was fantastic. Good size, tasty sauce, well presented - tremendous. I like to sample a good filet and this was as good as they come.

Desert choice was not massive but 3 of us gave in and they did not dissapoint.

Very good steak, service, surroundings and wallet friendly pricing. Will be back on next visit to Tenerife.
