Last night’s gala ceremony in Lisbon saw all the big names in Spanish and Portuguese gastronomy gather for the announcements of the Michelin starred restaurants to be included in the latest guide. And there are five in Tenerife, all of them repeating a success they also achieved last year. Two of them in the Abama Hotel itself.  The five are

M.B., Guía de Isora, 2 stars
Restaurante NUB, La Laguna, 1 star
Kabuki, Guía de Isora, 1 star
El Rincón de Juan Carlos, Los Gigantes, 1 star
Kazan, Santa Cruz de Tenerife, 1 star

Most of these restaurants are established star winners, but last year was the first star for NUB in La Laguna, so it’s a first time reinclusion for this restaurant which is now in the La Laguna Gran Hotel on the edge of the old part of town in Calle Nava and Grimon: its website is HERE.

The M.B and Kabuki restaurants are both in the Abama Hotel, the first being an inspiration of Basque chef Martín Berasategui whose initials give the establishment its name, and the second offering Japanese fusion. Both are on the Abama website HERE.

Also Japanese is Kazan in Santa Cruz, reviewed by Andy Montgomery in the Real Tenerife blog HERE. And finally, El Rincón de Juan Carlos cements a glowing reputation with another listing for the ever popular restaurant in Los Gigantes: its own website is HERE.

The tourism authorities have long been promoting Tenerife as a gastronomic destination. These latest awards will add to an increasing foodie reputation that can hold its own in any company!
