Excellent concert. 

Cappuccino en El Cafe del Aguere

December 8, 2016

As always, excellent cappuccino en El Café del Aguere. 

Cappuccino en La Cafeína

December 8, 2016

Several months a cappuccino in La Cafeína in La Laguna.  I have had bad coffee but never anything remotely this bad.

They moved. Had their coffee improved? Only one way to find out.

Ambience pleasant.  A queue out the door. 

I asked for a cappuccino.  I was brought a jar of beans. 

Over roasted.  

A few jars later. I would not say a pleasant aroma,  but at least not bad. At a guess old.

I asked of roast date. 

Cappuccino too hot.  Not as bad as I expected.  By low standard lf Tenerife, reasonable. 

Hoja de Reclamación

December 5, 2016

Every shop, bar, restaurant, coffee shop, has to have Hoja de Reclamación, official complaint form.

There has to be a prominent display telling you of its existence

If requested, it has to be given to fill out. If refused, they claim they do not have, do not know where it is, an offence is being created.

If you have a problem, bad service, then please request the Official Complaint Form.

Fill out, or on separate sheets, you keep one copy, one goes to the establishment, two copies to government for further investigation.

When Hotel Be Live Tenerife, currently a building site, but still open to clients, was asked by several different guests for the Official Complaint Form, they were given the hotel client survey form.

Cappuccino y helado en El Maná

December 4, 2016

The only place in Puerto de la Cruz to obtain a decent cappuccino. 

I thought I would also try their ice cream. 

I miss being in Athens. Eating  out, then ice cream. 

Cena en Los Gemelos

December 4, 2016

Soup excellent.  A meal in itself. 

The same could not be said for main course. 

Steak not very good. What masqueraded as salad very poor.  Old dried up chips.

Rough red wine but it did improve by the glass. 

OpenART Ensemble

December 4, 2016

I had a choice last Sunday,  OpenART Ensemble at a midday matinee at Teatro Timanfaya or evening concert at Abaco

I went for the matinee, where I had seen Satomi Morimoto play jazz piano with ST Fusion a couple of days before.

They ditched the programme, instead music from the French film Amelie,  followed by Astor Piazzolla.

El Rastro en El Mercado

December 3, 2016

Every Saturday and Wednesday a market, fruit and vegetables, books, wine, cakes, bread, tools, clothes, honey, junk, everything you could wish to find.

Wednesday is smaller than Saturday, though last Saturday very small due to heavy rain all morning.

Parque de atracciones

December 3, 2016

A middnight wander around around all but deserted fun fair beside the harbour in Puerto de la Cruz.

Zumo de naranja en Nada Mas

December 3, 2016


Popular juice bar day and night.

Unfortunate that during the day moronic music blasting out, which is out of character with  Calle Mequinez.

After dinner at El Maná and a midnight wander around the all but deserted fun fair that has opened in the harbour, sat outside and had an orange juice.

Juice good, though service somewhat slow.

Although looks nice on the outside, inside leaves much to be desired, grim.
