A Homestyle Cuisine at the Hole In The Wall Neighborhood Restaurant, Tasca Puntanalla.
This hole in the wall, family managed neighborhood restaurant Tasca Puntallana may surprise you with their home cooked style cuisine (with a bit of a twist) and a professional, friendly service.
The small supermarket next door is also run by the family so they are never short of ingredients!
Their prices are reasonable with a good selection of wines.
Whilst their entrance may seem like a cozy place to have a drink, especially by the locals, once you walk towards the rear, you will come to a very clean, well set and charming dining area.
Walk past the dining area and their newly constructed outside terrace dining area is ready for Summer visitors here in the South of Tenerife.

Served with bread, this complimentary starter is similar to a Russian potato salad.
It’s always nice to have something a little different from place to place, don’t you think?
Different from typically mixed salad and we love it.
Freshly boiled shrimp when ordered, with pineapple, cocktail sauce, quail eggs and fresh fillet of tuna garnished with greens and vegetables accompanied by a light dressing.
Toast with Iberian ham, tomato, and quail egg-
There are three other varieties of toast to select from but this was the first one we tried. Perhaps a little thick on the toast but look forward to trying the other three especially the Puntanalla toast which consists of avocado, small sea snails, and cheese.
This sirloin tasted like it was either marinated or seasoned before pan seared. There’s a subtle taste of that if you close your eyes and let your taste buds explore…
Escalope sirloin in Almogrote sauce-
The sauce itself was quite nice if you like almonds but not overpowering as other ingredients in this sauce tasted nice and well balanced.
Iberico pigs cheek in sauce-
Very tender cheeks and we do like cheek to cheek.
Sauce may be on the sweeter side for some but for my partner in crime, it was perfect.
Desert of the day may consist of Canarian Flan with caramel sauce or layered chocolate cake.
Be sure to ask your server what’s on the dessert menu for the day.
