Tenerife now has five Michelin stars for restaurants

Very recently the Michelin Guide handed out its annual awards of the famous stars, and in a clear boost to Tenerife’s gastronomic tourism credentials, there are now five Michelin stars in restaurants on the island – the only island in the Canaries to have any. The 2016 edition of the guide renews the previous four – two stars for M.B. and one for Kabuki in the Abama Hotel, and one for Kazán in Santa Cruz – and now adds another for El Rincón de Juan Carlos in Los Gigantes.

Here are the websites for the restaurants:




El Rincón de Juan Carlos


  1. Book el rincon at your peril. They are insisting you book through their website which requires your credit card details. Not a problem, except the site is unsecure which means they could be stolen by a third party. I contacted them regarding this but didn’t get a resolution!

  2. We have only eaten in two of the Michelin restaurants on Tenerife – the m&b at the Abama and, last autumn, at the one at Los Gigantes.

    The m&b is gimmicky, over priced and exceptionally disappointing and not worthy of any stars where as el rincon de Juan Carlos was an absolute delight.

  3. Where is the fifth one? I heard that there was one in Los Abrigos……….

      There are only four restaurants. There are five stars because one of them has two. The restaurant in Los Abrigos is, I imagine, Los Roques, but it’s not got a star … if I remember rightly it got a Michelin mention, but I can’t swear to it.
