El Ciclón information
Opened in November 2013 by three acclaimed Spanish chefs (all with Michelin-star restaurant experience), the dishes here are superbly prepared. Choose between set menus and tapas and raciones (large-size tapas) like the Canary Island favourite, papas arrugadas (new potatoes with a spicy coriander sauce), noodles with mussels, and artichokes with migas and cauliflower cream.
There is an old fashioned dessert trolly, but there is nothing old fashioned about the industrial-chic decor with its exposed steel pipes, edgy artwork and artistically painted and distressed furniture.
