Eat and drink at Cruz de Tejeda

In the town, you will also be able to have a coffee. A snack or a fine meal at one of the restaurants located here.

The Yolanda restaurant is a particular favourite of mine.  The chocolate fondant is to die for and the Canarian dish  Papas Arrugadas is among the best on the Island here.
