A smile costs nothing and is worth a fortune

THAT’S the motto of Restaurante Margarita where I was invited to eat last week, situated in Edificio Margarita, Los Cristianos (opposite Cristian Sur). Now you would be wrong in thinking that Restaurante Margarita is just a restaurant (as I originally did) it’s multi faceted, which is quite unique here in Tenerife – unique in the fact that owners Eddie and Ali from North Yorkshire pull it off with ease. The gorgeous restaurant is what I would call a ‘3 in 1’ – yes it’s a restaurant, but in addition it boasts a separate bar and lounge area if you want to partake of just a beverage and lastly, but by no means least they have ‘live’ entertainment – Margarita Music – every night from 9pm, with a minimum of two acts each night, many of them Tenerife Entertainment Award winners. So you get the benefit of top cabaret whilst eating. The night we visited we were entertained by Helena Campbell, now personally I’ve never seen her before but thought she was brilliant. Second act of the evening was ‘Birthday Boy’ Ged Bolton; the Restaurante Margarita team had put together a multimedia montage featuring Ged in various guises which were hilarious, a tiny touch, but so funny. Those ‘tiny touches’ are perhaps what distinguish Eddie and Ali’s establishment from the competition. Clients that visit often go back time after time as they are immediately put at ease by Ali managing the front of house. Ali told Canarian Weekly, “Our customers say it’s like a home from home – relaxed and friendly.” There’s even free wi-fi available to customers in the lounge area. It’s ideal for families as it only has one entrance/exit to monitor! All ages and nationalities are catered for by the staff, who love to party and have fun themselves – there’s never a dull moment in Restaurante Margarita. The newest development is their kids menu which is all inclusive – food, drink and entertainment. They have a two course meal including drinks all evening, the old adage ‘if the children are happy then the parents are happy’ comes to mind – a great idea. I had a lovely meal starting with juicy king prawns in garlic; my partner chose avocado and prawns which was a meal in itself! For our mains we opted for the BBQ which is cooked directly in front of you, we chose lamb chops and sirloin steak, but don’t worry if you don’t like the thought of BBQ meat there are a whole host of other things to choose from with daily specials. One thing to note warm plates and fresh vegetables – it goes along way. Waitress Gemma suggested I try the chocolaty ‘Grandma’ cake but I was too full to do it justice. If you keep your receipt for your evening meal and go back the following morning you are entitled to a free tea, coffee or juice with your breakfast. This summer their pool bar will be opening, which is just above the restaurant, definitely multi-faceted. Canarian Weeklyasked Ali what’s been her highlight during the two years they have been open, she replied, “It has to be repeat customers, I get such a buzz from seeing the same familiar faces and building relationships with our customers.” To sum up Restaurant Margarita is open every day from 10am until late, the last order for food is 11pm, and music continues until midnight, it’s a good quality restaurant, with a good value bar which is very reasonably priced, definitely worth a visit.
