For some it’s just a rather stylish sun terrace at the heart of Los Cristianos but to theatre and music fans El Auditorio Terraza is about as far removed from a choc ice and Kia Ora as you can get. For the first few months of its brief existence I sold it short, just popping in some mornings for a coffee or soft drink with maybe bread roll or croissant.
Now I am making up for lost time by working through the reasonably priced meal menu. A tuna steak with Canarian potatoes comes bathed in a mojo sauce that’s not too harsh and a supple chicken breast with a good serving of salad as well as Canarian potatoes or chips has the choice of the hot or mild mojo. In total 15 main meals compete for attention, pork, escalope of veal and omelette for something lighter all turn out at just five Euros each.
The Auditorio Infanta Leonor, named after the youngest Spanish royal child, has a packed programme and provides a steady flow of stage setting workers and technicians in the day and a selection of the potentially 800 strong audience at night. For visitors the main crossroads in Avenida Juan Carlos, just down from the bus station, marks this as a good meeting point and the mountains of Guaza and Roque del Conde sit up and beg to present natures own tourist attractions.
I should expand my morning choice, seven different breakfast options at four euros with a nice mix of juices, pastries or rolls, or your appetite can raise the stakes to salads, croissants, or rolls with several cheeses and hams to pick from. Funnily enough I have clocked the pancakes and ice creams, the chilled cabinet of cakes and pastries have also whispered to me and I’m ready to surrender.
El Auditorio Terraza is open seven days a week from 8am to 11pm and if you are lucky you may catch the dancing fountains auditioning either side of the building. The current month’s cultural programme is displayed on the Auditorium window so go and satisfy your hunger.
