Juan greeted me like an old chum, as did the other staff. La Taberna is located at Calle Hernan Cortes in Corralejo.
Having provided self with a sizeable Beefeater gin and tonic, I perused the menu.
I've enjoyed La Taberna's prawn cocktail before, a true classic. Tonight was no exception: juicy large prawns, the traditional tangy seafood sauce, lettuce, and a few chunks of pineapple.
They always bring you a perfectly fresh bread roll with their magnificent alioli sauce.
My second course consisted of spaghetti bolognese, and I was not disappointed. This was more akin to a main course than a starter.
It had good flavour and the old nose-bag was in overdrive by this stage, though the gnashers had it easy.
The bill came to about €24, including the Beefeater gin.
I endeavoured to find Dovela, a restaurant recommended to me by a regular reader, Hernandez; though it seems to have finally closed down.
I looked for Dovela on Calle Iglesia and on the sea-front, in vain.
