El Brasero Campestre Restaurant Review

Fri, April 27th, 2012 - By Nicky

El Brasero Campestre – ‘The Rural Grill’ in English – adopts a unique take on serving top-quality Canarian-style grilled meat. Servers bring a variety of meat dishes to the table, one after the other, until asked to stop – a carnivore’s dream come true. There is a vast selection of meat that will be offered to you, so make sure you don’t fill up on sausages before you’ve savoured the steak.

 

We were invited to take whatever caught our eye from the hot and cold self-service buffets for our starter. These buffets would also serve as our side order selection during our main meal and were packed with traditional Canarian tapas-style dishes, beautifully presented salads and every sauce imaginable.

After our starter we devoured roast and bacon-wrapped chicken, Canarian sausages, black pudding, gammon, lamb and steak, all of which was cooked to order and came out tender and packed with BBQ-grill flavour. There was another steak dish available to try; however, by that point, we had gorged on so much already that we couldn’t even bear the thought of another bite.

 

 

A selection of fresh fruit was available from the cold buffet which made for a wonderfully light dessert after such a hearty dinner.

The restaurant’s style is similar to that of very popular El Rodeo – another all-you-can-eat meat buffet located in Fañabe, Costa Adeje – and the quality of food is certainly on par, if not better. At El Brasero Campestre, tables are spread out through the elegant indoor and outdoor terraces with plenty of room between. The restaurant has also been sophistically decorated and portrays a modern, minimalistic style which is far superior to El Rodeo’s canteen-like feel.

 

 

The service really struck me as something special. None of the servers were British, but all spoke a really high standard of English and were the friendliest and happiest staff I’ve ever been served by. Our food was literally served with a smile.

El Brasero Campestre is incredible value for money. Adults can enjoy a satisfying and varied three-course menu for only €11.50 and children can enjoy the exact same food for €6. Drink prices are also reasonable – most soft drinks and large glasses of wine are €1.50, a pint of larger is €2 and a café con leche a mere €1.20.

Taking into consideration the general standard of food found in restaurants offering three courses for €12, El Brasero Campestre surpasses them all and is definitely worth a visit.

El Brasero Campestre is located in Las Chafiras in the South of Tenerife, close to Golf del Sur and Los Abrigos. The restaurant is open from 1pm until 11.30pm every day and caters for parties and banquets.

    Hi, please could you give some directions / landmarks to locate this restaurant. Thankyou

    Hi Claire,
    El Brasero Campestre is in Las Chafiras, just off the motorway. If you’re coming from the west of Tenerife (such as Las Americas or Los Cristianos), follow the motorway heading north until you reach the Las Chafiras exit – there will be a small commercial centre to your right with a McDonalds and a series of shops behind, including ‘Las Afortunadas’, ‘Worten’ and ‘Mercadona’. This exit will lead you to a round-a-bout. Take the fourth exit. That will take you to the other side of the motorway and another round-a-bout. Carry straight on across the second round-a-bout and there will be a strip of restaurants and shops on your right up a slight slope. Drive up the slope and El Brasero Campestre should be just on your right.

    I hope you find this helpful – it sounds quite confusing but I’m sure it will make sense when you’re driving. If you have any more questions, just leave another comment and I’ll get back to you. 🙂

      Thanks, Nicky – that’s great. Not confusing as we know the area – just wasnt sure which side of the motorway to be looking! Will definitely try next time we’re out.
