the wine bar and terrace
Occupying an enviable position in the centre of Los Gigantes is a smart complex of apartments called the Harbour Club.
Tacked on the side of this is The Wine Bar and Terrace, more commonly known, therefore, as The Wine Bar at the Harbour Club.
Although it, naturally, has an interior section, quite a lot of the venue is outside - a large terrace area covered with awnings (and dotted with heaters in winter), hence the name.
A very tastefully appointed venue, the "Wine Bar" name doesn't really do it justice, as it is, without doubt, a fine restaurant, featuring primarily British cuisine.
It is open to non-residents of the Harbour Club and can be accessed from the street. It only opens from 6pm and thus is an excellent choice for an evening meal.
On arrival, you will receive a very friendly welcome and shown to your table where you can peruse the menu. All classic British dishes are available, plus a "Sunday Roast", for which the Wine Bar is renowned. All food is prepared to order and contains well-cooked, generous portions.
Despite this, prices are very reasonable. At the time of writing, a three-course meal will set you back around 15 euros.
Superb food isn't the only thing the Wine Bar has to offer. Almost every night, there is guest cabaret appearing, featuring some of Tenerife's top acts.
One regular performer is Jamie Rourke, who specialises in music from the "swing" era, singing songs from Sinatra, Dean Martin, etc.
I'm not sure what time the live entertainment begins, but it's likely to be some time between 9pm and 9:30pm.

Once you've visited the Wine Bar, you will return!
To find this venue, travel along the TF-1 motorway in a northwest direction. When the motorway ends (with a large roundabout), take the third exit (signed Playa San Juan/Los Gigantes TF-47). You need to stay on this winding road a good while. It'll take you past Callao Salvaje and through the villages of Abama and Alcala.
Eventually, you'll arrive at a T-junction, signed Tamaimo to the right and you should go left here. Follow the road down the hill.
Stick to this road till you come to a mini roundabout, then take the first exit. Sortly after this, the road forks and you should take the left one (which is one-way). Follow this road round (there's a hairpin bend on the way) and, when you reach a sort of triangular junction, you'll see the Harbour Club's dark red facade directly opposite. The Wine Bar is annexed at the right hand side of the building.
