The island of Santa Cruz de Tenerife is a popular holiday destination for millions of people, that visit the island in search of sun and beach, and end up discovering an island with many different possibilities including cultural, sports, nature and gastronomic proposals. The Canary Islands enjoy a wonderful climate all year round and is one the favourite destinations during the autumn and winter, but maybe the vast majority of people are not aware of all the possibilities the island has to offer.
The hotel chain Iberostar Hotels & Resorts is determined to promote the culinary offer of those destinations in which it has a presence, and Santa Cruz de Tenerife is no exception. The companies hotel on the island, the Iberostar Grand Mencey hotel has 3 restaurants and 3 bars, as well as its renown Mencey Cookery Classroom. The Grand Mencey is a perfect example of a gastronomic hotel in Tenerife.
The chef Juan Carlos Clemente is responsible for the gastronomic offer of the hotel, as well as organising numerous cooking courses, show cooking, team-building, private dinners and cooking cycles such as the present “Women with a Star”. This cooking cycle congregates, once a month a spanish women chef that has a restaurant with Michelin star, and offers a real Master Class with a presentation of their most famous signature dishes, and of course, have the possibility to enjoy a degustation menu from a fine dinning restaurant.
The Los Menceyes restaurant offers an authentic gourmet cuisine, based on the traditional gastronomy of the Canary Islands and the most delicious products of the islands, such as the majorero cheese, gofio, fish and seafood from the Atlantic, bananas, wine, etc.
The base for all good cuisine are the raw materials, but without the creativity and the will to offer clients the best possible dish, the objective of all gourmet restaurants is far from possible. At the restaurants of the Grand Mencey and its Cookery Classroom you feel the desire to transmit to the guest a unique and unforgettable experience.
