TASCA FLAMBOYAN RESTAURANT, San Juan de Telde
Come to dine to the heart of Gran Canaria, just 20 minutes drive from Las Palmas.
The very ancient castillian’ style San Juan village and San Francisco village are both enclosed within the Telde municipality, which is the second biggest town in Gran Canaria.
Both San Juan & San Francisco villages are towed away from all the surrounding urban areas and seem to suddenly bring you to Cuba, or to any Spanish colonial village from the XVI century. Actually the flora and all the sympathy in Gran Canaria has a flavour of the Caribbean islands, and the land has the colours of Africa, specifically of Morocco.
Maybe least appealing, or adventurous to mention, but important to remember: This is not just Europe as everyone realizes, but one of te most, laidback, genuine and safe locations within the EU, like any other spot in the Canary Islands.
From TASCA FLAMBOYAN we can simply say it is a lovely tapas-bar with well looked-after details, and a very well-run cuisine.
It is a nice experience, both to sit inside (recommended during lunch when hot outside) or prefferably to come for dinner and take a seat at one of the quiet outdoor tables, having a nice glass of wine and some original tapas while you contemplate a truly begone atmosphere of the plaza surrounded by Ficus tres.
It all makes you feel completely in armony with Gran Canaria.
Ps. Don’t forget to plan a 30 minutes easy walk around the pedestrian-connected San Juan & San Francisco villages. We recommend it before sunset and before dinner.
