Grill & wood stove
La Zahorra restaurant is located on the slope of the volcanic Massif of Teno. So, many hikers and trekkers often visit us before or after a good walk through the ravines and ridges of the area.
You'll also find here many local customers who enjoy our grilled meats and Canarian specialities.
Grilled meats and sausages star our menu. Try them with a fresh salad from local orchards and some freshly made chips. You can also order some Canarian specialties: garbanzas, pork meat "carne fiesta", goat meat "carne cabra"...
Have a look at our menu and you'll discover how much we love the traditional homemade desserts.
El Palmar is also the name of the fertile valley where we are. Our little village, about 8 kilometers from the town of Buenavista del Norte, is the starting and finish point of several trails that go across the Natural Park of Teno, its ravines, mountains and picturesque villages.
The Teno Rural Park is one of Tenerife's most beautiful natural areas. Due to its difficult access, this area has been always very isolated, so it has kept its scenic, cultural and botanical values.
Our restaurant La Zahorra is the perfect start point for many walks: towards west you'll get Baracán peak, Teno Alto or Teno lighthouse... towards southeast you will reach Bolico peak or Monte del Agua... All in all if you like Nature and feel like exploring the most unknown and fascinating places of the island, El Palmar is your choice to lace and unlace the boots.
"The best grilled chicken I've ever tried, I also like their homemade gofio mousse. I heartily recommended it to my Finnish friends!"
"A typical local place where the food is tasty, delicious and absolutely freshly made. You can have dinner in the yard open-air behind the house. Very reasonably priced!"
"If you want to enjoy a good canarian grill try this restaurant. First, go with pan con chorizo... the chicken is really tasty and - my daughter said - the dessert was scrumptious. Very friendly and quick staff."
