For the taste of a 100% Authentic Tenerife cafeteria ( bar/cafe ) you could do a lot worse than stop off for refreshments at the Cafeteria Manhattan , on the main thoroughfare through the mountain-side town of San Miquel . There you will probably be greeted by your host Juan ( if he recognises you as an English speaker ) with a friendly " ALL RIGHT MATE " . No fancy frills but good tasty food prepared quickly by Juan himself , who must be one of the hardest working proprietor / barman / chef / waiter on the Island . This doesnt stop him from taking the time for a joke and a chat with his many customers , including the kids who he entertains whilst Mum and Dad enjoy a snack or a beverage of their choice. Personally , I love his " Americano " coffee ( which is delicious and served at a price that should make the big coffee chains blush ). A selection of Pork , Chicken , Beef etc can be cooked up , Spanish Style , in minutes as well as a variety of Burgers , Baguettes , Sandwiches etc and of course there are the obligatory " French Fries ". The food is tasty and the PRICES are definitely SOMETHING TO WRITE HOME ABOUT ! ! ! ! ... By no means the " fanciest food or establishment that I have reviewed but last night , having said that I loves Prawns in Garlic , Juan cooked me up the best dish of this sort that I have tasted since dining in the expensive but excellent Solivar Restraunt in Ibiza ( now saddly closed ) in 1991 . Not a dish he normaly serves but Juan said , that if I brought the prawns , that he would prepare them for me . HOW OFTEN DO YOU GET SERVICE LIKE THAT ? ? ? ? . So , whether you are staying in San Miquel or just passing through on a drive around the island perhaps , it is well worth a visit to Juans "CAFETERIA MANHATTAN " which is on the side of the main road through San Miquel ( between the Local Police Station and the Tourist Information Office ) with ample free parking nearby ............. The only problem you might encounter is that you may enjoy yourselves so much that you will be looking for a bed for the night and saddly folks , Juan doesnt do Bed AND Breakfast ..... just BREAKFAST .
