We had heard through the grapevine that Benn & Zoe along with the help of their friend Nicola, had recently opened a new restaurant in the commercial capital and as myself and Nicola always make time for a shopping day in Arrecife, we were always going to swing by to check it out.
TABLA Arrecife sits just along from the 5 Star Arrecife Gran hotel and as most tourist who drive into the city tend to park in the car park underneath the hotel, the restaurant will be easy to find as you need to walk by it to get to the main shopping stretch.
We arrived about 1:30pm and after initially sitting inside, we decided to move outside to one of the tables on the sidewalk, as the cool breeze from the sea helped take the heat out of a very hot afternoon. TABLA specialises in quality burgers but also serves up a selection of salads and tasting boards, and after a look over the menu we decided to share a couple of plates between us.
