This is one of the latest terraces to join the list of rooftops in the capital and is undoubtedly one of the best in the city.

This roof terrace is in the heart of Vegueta and has a wide drinks menu that you can combine with a good snack. We highlight its assortment of Canarian and Iberian cheeses, a wide variety of preserves and croquettes of different flavours. They are open from Monday to Friday from 3pm to 11pm and on Saturdays and Sundays from 11am to 11pm.

They don’t have a food or snack menu, but they do have one of the best services in the city, as it is inside the facilities of this excellent five-star hotel.
