buy generic clomid online Anyone who accesses Puerto del Carmen via the main road from Tías, must have noticed the smart new Restaurante DER that has opened next to the pharmacy on Calle Juan Carlos I.

DER Restaurant InteriorDER Thai pastries

Restaurante DER opened in autumn 2014, they specialise in a menu that caters for food allergies & intolerances. The DER menu is clearly marked with a colour system to identify ingredients included in each dish, making it really easy to spot which ones to avoid if you are allergic to gluten, nuts, eggs, milk etc.

I visited Restaurante DER for the first time this month with friends who have food allergies. They were impressed with the menu, we took our time to decide and was helped by Chef Fred who came out of the kitchen to advise us. Fred is brilliant, his enthusiasm is obvious and he speaks excellent English. We were treated to a delicious portion of Thai pasties for a starter which had delicate pieces of chicken inside served with a sweet chilli sauce.  read more »
