Hands down my favorite restaurant at Tenerife. I have been here every time and I love this place. Don't order the hamburger, steak or pizza here. Go for the traditional Lebanese cuisine and prepare to be amazed.

Nice atmosphere and a very friendly, gracious owner/host. My wife is part Lebanese so the three of us engaged in enjoyable, lengthy discussions. Food is quite good and fairly authentic, so I do recommend it, although it is a little on the pricey side.
