la cuchara victor cruz
That's the full name of La Cuchara (the spoon) and the Victor Cruz in question is a chef who already has a restaurant/bistro elsewhere in Santa Cruz.
The relatively new venture of La Cuchara opened its doors in 2007, with the accent on exciting, unusual dishes in stylish surroundings.
The building housing the restaurant used to be a tanning factory and photos of its previous incarnation adorn the walls. These contrast nicely with the clean lines of the decor - white walls, white tables and chairs.
The idea behind the restaurant's unique dishes is to take traditional Canarian ideas and fuse them with really avant-garde and unusual twists.
Chef Marc Neris, therefore, has come up with such combinations as smoked Iberican sirloin with apple puree in sweet white wine, duck stuffed with tamarind jam served with mango cream, papas arrugadas stuffed with grouper in cilantro and pepper sauce, sauteed scallops with passion fruit, lamb pie with a curry vinaigrette - and, would you believe, rabbit burger!
The wine cellar is well stocked, too and, to help you with your choice, front of house manager, Isaac Delgado Jaen, will offer his advice.
For a unique dining experience in a pristine, stylish setting, try this restaurant.

To find this restaurant, a good place to start out from is the Mercado de Nuestra Señora de Africa, with its landmark clock tower.
Set off down the second road to the right of the market (Avenida de San Sebastian - there's a branch of Santander Bank on the corner). Eventually, the road splits three ways and you should take the left one. Follow this road round (during which you'll have to cross a couple of roads). Presently, you'll come to a small, open space on your left. La Cuchara is in this square, on the left.
