We put our heart and the best products in each recipe, continually reinventing ourselves to surprise you.
At Calderito de la Abuela we believe that good cuisine is a sum of tradition and innovation. Our purpose is to ensure that you enjoy yourself and that our dishes, based on honesty and the search for flavor through the quality of the ingredients, comfort and amaze you.
Mario and Fabián have been making El Calderito de la Abuela in Santa Úrsula since 2005 a place where gastronomy and atmosphere come together so that your moments there are unforgettable.
Local. Personal. Authentic.
In our organic garden we grow a large part of the aromatic plants, greens and vegetables that we use, and we choose products from our region whenever possible. This guarantees us the best quality, and favors a personal relationship with local suppliers. We can always visit them and check the quality of their products for ourselves. We know exactly where our products come from and we can guarantee their freshness and taste.
We love using local ingredients when faced with the challenge of creating new dishes to offer off the menu. Not only, we manage to have fun and contribute to local development, we also manage to surprise our customers and make them enjoy each dish.
Discover the unique atmosphere of El Calderito de la Abuela
El Calderito de la Abuela is located on the first floor of the family building where the well-known Los Corales restaurant, by Mario Torres, used to be located. The ground floor is occupied by the office and a kitchen for research where right now, Mario Bakes breads are made.
Our main dining room is a large window area, recently renovated, with unique views of La Orotava Valley and the sea. Both here and in the lounge attached to the bar, with magnificent views of Mount Teide, we have done everything possible to make you feel at home.
In the new terrace surrounded by palm trees, with wide distances between the Biergarten-style tables, we comply with the protocols against COVID-19, and if it gets cold? Don’t worry: we have mushroom stoves waiting for you.
Since the Torres brothers enter the restaurant, they are in their element. Fabián focuses on room work and clients and Mario on the kitchen. They both do it with the professionalism and enthusiasm inherited from their father, Mario Torres.
They enjoy their work as much as their clients enjoy their dishes and the atmosphere of their restaurants: El Calderito de la Abuela, La Bodeguita de Enfrente and Donde Mario. Mario and Fabián’s business has grown enough to be able to offer different cuisine and concept alternatives with the help of their trusted team. They are restaurants where you can indulge yourself and return home with an indelible memory.
Fabián and Mario are now joined by another Torres, Raúl, after having worked as a chef in some of the best restaurants in the world, to lead the kitchen in the new adventure of Donde Mario.
