Although we’ve been to the area a few times, we’d never visited El Makami before, but having seen the very positive reviews on here, we decided to give it a go.

We visited twice during our stay, the first time, we weren’t really hungry, but we still ordered 3 tapas dishes and all were very tasty, so we knew we’d be back.

We returned a couple of nights later and were treated to some very enjoyable tapas dishes, the winners were the excellent tempura shrimp and codfish in green live sauce, in fact all 8 dishes we ordered were cooked fresh and were very well balanced with great flavour.

It’s on our list now, so when we return to Playa Fanabe, we will definitely stop by again and again.

Well done to Cassandra and the El Makami team - you’re on top of your game!

We fancied tapas and sangria whilst visiting Costa Adeje and remembered the reviews for this little gem of a place. Great views out to sea and friendly on point service. We had a selection of dishes including prawns, tuna, falafel, croquettes and potatoes and all were well presented and tasted delicious. Accompanied by a jug of sangria and finished off with the obligatory barraquitos - a delight! Definitely worth a visit.

The chef at El Makami delivers delicious tapas that are a pleasure to eat! The Italian and Spanish fusion makes for exciting innovative dishes.

During our two visits we ordered most of the menu and loved it all!!!

The restaurant is located at the lower level of the promenade - closest to the beach. This provides it with unobstructed sea and sunset views.

The prices are surprisingly reasonable and a glass of wine goes for €2.50!

Would definitely recommend!!

Best food all holiday. We had 3 different kinds of mojito which were all lovely and tapas. Each dish was fantastic. Definitely recommend tempura shrimps, sautéed clams and papas bravas. Beautiful

Lovely little Tapas restaurant/bar, nice vibe and staff are lovely. Regular Tapas plus special - they also have a normal menu with pasta/pizza etc. We had 3 dishes each, even my son of 10 ate 2 dishes of Squid and Meatballs - and he is fussy. He loved it. We would recommend the Cod tapas, Canarian Goats stew, BBQ chicken wings, Garlic bread, plus wine by carafe is nice, plus the draught beer. Great find but we ate early at 6.30pm and 7pm (2 visits). Might get busy to reserve table by the front of beach to be sure.
