Best Restaurant In Costa Adeje

Amalfi Restaurant

We have chosen the best restaurant in Costa Adeje to be Amalfi. So I’ll go over why we think this.

Amalfi Restaurant in Costa Adeje has effortlessly stolen the top spot as our favorite place to dine. 

It’s a combination of factors that make it truly unbeatable. 

First and foremost, the food is the real deal. Authentic Italian dishes bursting with flavor take center stage.

3 Hidden Gems in Costa Adeje

Costa Adeje has surprised me with some hidden gems!
I wanted to share 3 of my favorites with you:

First if you are looking for some entertainment including a game of Bingo, The mellow Gecko could be exactly what you are after.

Second if you’re looking to meet fellow travelers, Heads & Tails Bar offers a welcoming atmosphere and social gatherings.

And finally, Lily’s English Tea Terrace is a delightful spot for breakfast or afternoon tea, with cakes and scones that are simply divine.

Mellow Gecko: Bingo

Mellow Gecko Costa Adeje

We stumbled upon a hidden gem in Costa Adeje last time we were here – The Mellow Gecko!

This little bar is more than just your average bar.

If you’re looking for a fun night out with a chance to win some prizes, look no further! 

They have bingo and games happening Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sundays, starting at 3pm.

We were lucky enough to catch Paddy’s act on a Wednesday. Let me tell you, this guy is a comedian!

We haven’t laughed that hard in ages. Apparently, Gary takes over the hosting duties on other days, but everyone seems to rave about the atmosphere.

The staff, including the owner Adam, were incredibly welcoming. We tried their white sangria, and it was absolutely delicious! They also have fantastic cocktails, with a great 2-for-€10 deal.

The Mellow Gecko is so popular for bingo that they recommend booking a spot in advance.

It’s a great place to meet new people (as the in-laws did), both locals and visitors.  They also have fantastic food, so you can make a whole evening of it. 

 

Heads & Tails

Heads & Tails Bar Costa Adeje

Head and tails is well known for solo travelers to meet up. 

This hidden gem has become famous for its welcoming atmosphere, making it the perfect spot to meet fellow adventurers.

Whether you’re on holiday or a resident, Heads & Tails offers a chance to connect with others over a drink and share travel stories.

Every Wednesday at 2pm, the bar hosts a social group meet-up, specifically designed to help solo travelers mingle.

Look for the upturned wine glass on a table, or simply ask the friendly staff to point you in the right direction. But the fun doesn’t stop there – Heads & Tails is also a sports fanatic’s paradise.

With a whopping seven screens, you’re guaranteed to catch all the action, no matter your favorite sport.

So, grab a drink, cheer on your team, and make some new friends at the Heads & Tails Bar!

 

Lily’s English tea Terrace

Lily's Afternoon Tea Costa Adeje

This charming spot isn’t just about a cuppa and a biscuit, though they certainly excel in that department.

They’re renowned for their mouthwatering breakfasts, a symphony of freshly prepared ingredients that will set you up perfectly for a day of exploring Tenerife.

From fluffy omelets to perfectly cooked sausages, Lily’s full English breakfast is a local favorite.

But the magic doesn’t stop there. Lily’s is a haven for sweet tooths as well. Their homemade cakes and scones are legendary, praised by visitors and locals alike. Imagine warm scones, melting in your mouth, or a slice of cake so good it’s “to die for,” as one reviewer put it.

Whether you have a craving for a classic Victoria sponge or something more adventurous, Lily’s bakers have something to tantalize your taste buds.

So next time you’re in Costa Adeje, pop into Lily’s English Tea Terrace. Enjoy a delicious breakfast, and treat yourself to one of their heavenly cakes and scones, or perhaps to a full afternoon tea experience. With its friendly staff and charming atmosphere, Lily’s is a guaranteed delight.

 

Final word

All these restaurants offer something completely different, from Scotch Corner and McGuire’s serving up a traditional British and Irish meal to a once-in-a-lifetime experience of teppanyaki at Miishi.

All the restaurants in this blog are my and my wife’s favourite restaurants.

As we have been coming here almost every year for the last 10 we have eaten in several. That’s not to say there aren’t ones we haven’t heard of or come across equally as good. I’m sure there are plenty of local restaurants that we have still to try out.

Our top restaurants also features in our Things to do in Costa Adeje blog.

For those who fancy venturing out a bit there are some great restaurants in Playa de las Americas and Los Cristianos, or even further to La Caleta where they have a fantastic seafood restaurant called La Vieja
