5 Special Occasions Restaurants In Puerto del Carmen

Puerto del Carmen is full of great restaurants of all types, and you could eat out for every meal for a long period and never try them all! We’re doing our best, but it’s a lifetime’s work to report on every single one of them.

But there are some restaurants which are worthy of second or third visits – those places on the “special occasion” list, and ones which we use when we want to celebrate a birthday or an anniversary or just to have a treat.

Here are our 5 special occasion restaurants in Puerto del Carmen:

Casa Roja

Casa Roja_2

Set right in the harbour, with a terrace onto the ocean, Casa Roja serves excellent food and wine in a delightful atmosphere during lunchtimes and evenings. As you would expect, the sea food is delicious, although the Argentinian sourced steaks are pretty special as well. The building itself is fascinating, being one of the oldest on the island, dating from 1850.

Our full review of Casa Roja

Casa Cabaña

Not to be confused with La Cabaña in Macher (which is also excellent) Casa Cabaña is situated in the old town of Puerto del Carmen and features an enclosed front terrace area and cool air conditioned interior. The house speciality is Beef Wellington, which is superb, and they also offer a good choice of poultry, fish and vegetarian dishes. The restaurant is British owned and is open evenings only from Monday to Saturday.
