‘Adeje spicy chicken’ is part of the staple diet for anybody coming to Tenerife especially Club Olympus owners and guests. There are three main restaurants to visit to enjoy “Adeje Chicken”.
They are Oasis (which we featured recently), Damary’s and Otello’s. Each place has its own unique recipe, style and ambience. Having said everybody has their own particular favourite.
Otello’s can be found right at the top of Adeje town (entrance shown above). It is situated at the beginning of the “Barranco Del Infierno” walk so to get to it, just follow the signs for the walk. Their chicken is a little drier than Oasis or Damary’s but is still very tasty and packed full of the typical spicy flavour. Their local wine is also very good. Their ‘House Salad’ is to be recommended and is usually had as a starter.
What really makes Otello an outstanding place is its location and views. Such as this view below of our ‘Tabletop’ Mountain to the right of the terrace. It’s official Spanish name is “Conde” but many locals call it “Montana Mesa”.
From their terrace pictured below, we have views up to the mountains, the “Barranco” and right out over the sea.
Here we can clearly see the beginning of the famous “Barranco Del Infierno” or “Hell’s Gorge” walk.
Which then leads right up into the dramatic scenery of the Barranco. Of course everybody who goes on the 3 to 4 hour walk ends up back at Otello’s for lunch or dinner.
A regular visitor to Otello’s is this beautiful black Crow who injured his wing some years ago. The staff feed him regularly and he drops in several times per day.
The town of Adeje can be quite difficult for parking so a great feature of Otello is its large car park at the rear of the restaurant.
The restaurant also has a lovely interior with giant windows to take advantage of the views if the weather is a little cooler or for the evenings.
The food, the views, the atmosphere of Otello’s make it an absolute winner especially at lunchtime when you get the full impact of the panoramic vista’s. The next time you are visiting Club Olympus in Tenerife, you might give it a try. Please comment if you have been to Otello’s or enjoy any other restaurant that you have tried in Tenerife.
