Restaurante La Tabaiba
Delicious to eat in or takeaway
You know how it is: you’ve just got home from work and you’re tired out – you’d really like something tasty and fresh, but you really don’t know if you’ve got the energy. Or maybe you just fancy a rest or something different to eat for a change. A takeaway springs to mind, but … much as you love Chinese, Indian and pizza, you’ve already had one or more of them this week and what you really want is some fabulous homemade food - with all the taste but none of the effort.

Well, look no more – there is a restaurant that supplies exactly that in the south of Tenerife: offering a broad selection of meals that can be delivered to your door while you sit back and put your feet up.  Carlos and Beatriz Morales are already renowned for their great cooking and fabulous service as they had the Fina restaurant in El Fraile for 10 years before opening La Tabaiba in Las Chafiras in 2007.  What may not be so well known is the great range of takeaway food they offer.  Starters include garlic bread, chicken nuggets and wings, croquettes, garlic prawns and Camembert cheese with blueberry sauce. 

There are various types of fresh pasta: all of which come with a choice of Bolognese, carbonara, Napolitana or pesto sauces.  The different types of meat dishes include veal, sirloin and chicken cordon bleu which can come with mushroom, green pepper or Roquefort sauces.  There are fish dishes for those who wish them, luscious homemade hamburgers, various types of omelettes and even good old, down to earth chips and egg.

There are plenty of different sandwich and croissant combinations available, as well as a selection of interesting salads and a children’s menu.  Then there are an incredible 26 different pizzas to choose from, such as the Margarita or Four cheeses right through to the elegantly named Duchess, Queen and Temptations pizzas.   Tasty homemade desserts include apple pie, profiteroles, blueberry cheese cake, tiramisu and chocolate mousse.

And, just to add a little extra to that wonderful feeling of having arranged your food and being able to sit back and relax, Restaurant La Tabaiba also has special offers on takeaway orders.  Any order over €30 on any day of the week gets a free bottle of wine or large bottle of pop included.  On Tuesdays all clients get a free portion of chips with sauces when they spend over €15.  Wednesdays you can get two drinks or desserts for the price of one, and on Thursdays every order over €20 gets an extra two- ingredient pizza thrown in.  There is also the special house menu of a choice of starters, main and drinks, with bread, for just €7.50 if you order between 12pm and 5pm, Tuesday to Friday.  It is certainly a full takeaway menu, with enough choice to ensure that every one can eat just what they fancy.

Delivery cover starts from the area of Costa del Silencio and El Palmar in one direction right down to El Médano the other way, and as far up into the mountains as Las Zocas.  It’s available between the hours of 12pm and 5pm and 7pm to midnight, except Mondays.  The minimum orders to qualify for free delivery range from an extremely reasonable €10 to €15 – and you can even pay by credit card.

Alternatively you can always pop into the restaurant itself.  Based in Las Chafiras, it has a friendly atmosphere and cheery staff who are always welcoming.  They serve everything that is on the takeaway menu plus there is a choice of very reasonable set meal offers.  These include Menu one: a starter, main course, bread, drink and dessert for only €7.50, and Menu four: a four ingredient pizza, drink and dessert for only €7.

There are tables outside for those who wish to enjoy the sunshine or a smoke, and it is the perfect stopping place for a meal and relaxation when visiting the many shops that are in the area.  They is even an English newspaper there every day for you to enjoy with your meal.

Restaurant Tabaiba is open from 7am to 12.30am every day except Mondays.   And what better time to try their services than now – just cut out the coupon that you will find with their advert below, present it to the staff, and you will receive a 25 per cent discount on any order over €15 either from the restaurant or takeaway. 

Find Restaurante La Tabaiba at Avenida Claudio Delgado Diaz, 85 in Las Chafiras - on the top road that is parallel to, and can be seen from, the motorway.  Alternatively, call: 922 735923 to place your order.
