A favourite place of our is "Restaurante Churrasqueria - El Rodeo". A Churrasqueria or 'Churrasca" is a specialised South American type restaurant where meat is cooked over an open fire pit then served on long swords. They are thought to be derived from Brazillian 'Gaucho's' or cowboys who roasted beef over open camp fires.

Above we can see Beef Ribs cooking nicely. The meat is then cut directly from the swords which act as spits and make for ease of serving. You can have as much or as little as you like from each variety of meat.

Here is Ivan being served a delicious slice of Pork Fillet directly from the sword. A great variety of meat is served and you simply say yes or no when the waiter arrives. The cuts include, chicken, sausage, fillet steak with Roquefort cheese sauce, Ham and Pineapple, Beef in garlic, Pork in Parmesan, rare roast beef and many others.

All the meat is complemented by a mouth-watering 'all you can eat' salad buffet . Some people go just for the salad selection. It is a one off fee of roundabout 20 Euros for all of this outstanding food. Drinks are of course extra. It is worth bearing in mind that it is a good idea to be hungry when you visit! And when you think you are done, they bring around an enormous 'sweet trolley'.

No problem for Mike Booth, ex marketing manager of Club Olympus, pictured above with Ivan. We don't actually look as if we are starving do we?

It's also a great place to take larger parties as there is abundant parking and it is a huge place that is well geared up for handling large amounts of people. The cleanliness, friendliness and speed of service make "El Rodeo" a big hit and it is only a 20 minute walk or 3-5 minute car journey from Club Olympus.

We love this place and know that you will too. Ask any member of the Olympus team about how to get there and they will be glad to help.

Give it a go and give yourselves a treat!

See you soon!

We haven't been to one of our favourite restaurants for a wee while but Ray was certainly excited to be back at Era Las Mozas!

He just had his usual light snack, a 'Chuleton' from an Ox. Of course it didn't last long.

Nor indeed was there much of it left by the time our In-House Manager had finished with it!

We visited the restaurant with a team of friends from Rochdale and a very pleasant afternoon was had by all.

You can find Restaurante "Era Las Mozas" in the town of Valle San Lorenzo. Ask any member of the Club Olympus team and they will point you in the right direction.

Bon Provecho!

We haven't had one of these for a while! All veggies, please look away now!

Yes, we were back at Restaurante "Era Las Mozas" in Valle San Lorenzo and Ray, our In-House Team manager was feeling a tad 'peckish'. The "Chuleton de Buey" or Chop from an Ox just about filled a corner.

Ray generally eats quite sensibly('ish) and is usually tea-total but every now and again he needs a man's meal.

And there it was........................................

Just to let you know that In-House Team manager, Ray Karlsen, has not suddenly lost his appetite and gone vegetarian.

Yet again we were at one of our favourite eating houses, 'Era Las Mozas' in Valle San Lorenzo.

The food here is particularly outstanding, especially if you are meat lover. Everything is cooked to order on a giant "Brasa" or wood fired barbecue. We sit outside under a spreading Avocado Tree and enjoy their local wine.

Look at their website here

 We always sit in the same seats and Ray does enjoy his "Chuleton de Buey" or 'T-Bone from an Ox' in English

The meat here is generally brought in from Argentina and because of the quantity that they sell here is always of high quality. It is hung for just the right time and seasoned beautifully! So let's do the going, going, gone, routine!


Nearly there (after about 7 minutes!)

And there it is just about done. He did, of course, chew the bone! I love to watch this guy eat!

Tenerife has a multitude of fabulous places to eat that cater for all. Ask any member of the team at Club Olympus for directions to loads of outstanding eateries. So do come and enjoy.

See you soon.

And of course, no month is complete without a shot of Club Olympus In-House Team Manager Ray Karlsen, about to devour a T-Bone steak from an Ox at one of our favourite places, Era De Las mozas, Valle San Lorenzo!

I know, it's outrageous but he is a healthy, growing lad who needs some protein! He does burn it off in 'Hedley's Gym' and is a very hardworking member of the Olympus team. However...........

The chunk of meat  from a ploughing farm Ox doesn't last long with this hungry Scouser!
