Must try: Among the eight exceptional eateries here is the Basque-style M.B, the only restaurant in the entire Canary Islands to boast two Michelin stars, and Kabuki, Abama's Japanese-fusion restaurant which has also been honoured with a Michelin star.
Along with trying some of the enormous selection of sushi and sashimi available at Kabuki, we highly recommend sampling the Iberian pork with Yakiniku sauce for its mildly sweet and umami taste. Alternatively, treat yourself to the extensive tasting menu, serving eight different courses and paired perfectly with a selection of sakes.
