We recently had the privilege of eating at Zurita Bar and … without queuing! This restaurant is located in a privileged area of Ojos de Garza Beach, since all its tables have sea view.
In the same way, it is the only restaurant bar on the beach. In addition, here you can eat very well and has a good value for money. Therefore, it is difficult to get a table, especially on weekends and bank holidays. On busy days you have to wait your turn, even arriving before 2:00 p.m. They have a machine to take a number in the same terrace and the waiters are calling by order of arrival.
Ojos de Garza restaurant bar Zurita
Bar Zurita is specialized in Canarian food and seafood in general. We tried the bread with homemade aioli, the papas arrugadas, the calamari, the mixed salad and the ropa vieja made with octopus. For us the star dish is undoubtedly the ropa vieja with octopus. There are few places on the island where the ropa vieja, instead of meat, comes with octopus. We only know the Zurita bar and the bar that is on the beach of Tasarte, which we have already talked about before. As we usually do, we show you photos of the dishes we ordered so you can appreciate the quantities and presentation.
You must take in mind that the portions are quite large, even the half portions. Of the previous dishes, the ropa vieja, the salad and the papas with mojo are half portions. If we had to say something negative about the food, we would say that the bread was like a chewing gum. Maybe because we went on a bank holiday and they did not have bread of the day. Concerning the service, they treated us very well and in general it was quite fast despite the lots of people.
The menu, its prices and offer variety
As you can see below, there is a huge variety of local food dishes in the menu. There are salads, rices, some meat, but their specialty is the seafood. As for the prices, they are quite affordable. We paid a total of € 35, for all the above together with the drinks.
Bookings and opening times
The restaurant opens from Tuesday to Sunday from 12:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., except for Fridays and Saturdays when they close at 7:00 p.m. On Mondays they are closed. The good new is that they accept bookings. This is perfect in case you want to go with a group. We leave you here their phone number: +34928574689.
We hope you like to know this place as much as we do. Remember to book in advance or try to be there before 1:00 p.m. to get a table without queuing. A delicious Canarian meal with sea view!
