The restaurant La Cueva Caprichosa is located inside a natural cave, which was altered to create the restaurant. However, the walls and ceiling of the main room are still the walls of the cave. Beneath the fact that it is inside a cave, it is also one of the best restaurants of Tenerife. They offer meat from the charcoal grill, and numerous local and spanish specialties. Recommended are the croquetas de morcilla (black pudding croquettes), ensaladilla de batata (potato salad of sweet potatoes, olives and thuna), pollo a la parrilla (grilled chicken), and ropa vieja (chickpea stew with meat, vegetables and potato).
