About a 15 minute ride away by taxi is the little fishing port of Las Galletas. On the seafront of this village are several great little restaurants. One of them is a Belgian Restaurant by the name of Panorama. They specialise in freshly steamed mussels.
The Mussels come in a variety of sauces, you choose which one you like. We generally go for the white wine and Garlic. We, in this instance, being my wife Janette and mum Jane Rhodes!
Pictured above is my Mrs, thoroughly enjoying her kilo of fresh mussels. The lid is used as a handy "graveyard" to dispose of your mussel shells. Chips are provided along with a delicious Bearnaise sauce.
As we get to the bottom of our Mussels, we are left with a delightful soup that has to be finished with a spoon and plenty of bread (best to go when quite hungry).
Pictured above is Mum Jane enjoying the wonderful Lemon and Vodka Sorbet to finish off with and here below is me Ivan with a happy, smiley face after a great lunch.
Restaurante Panorama is smack on the sea-front with fabulous views and super friendly staff. They have a great menu but the Mussels are the thing to have here. They are closed on Mondays, as are many restaurants here in Tenerife.
The kilo of Mussels costs 14 Euros but includes chips and sauces. Ask any member of the Olympus team for instructions on how to find it.
