Local restaurant in Callao Salvaje scoops TripAdvisor certificate

Regular diners in Callao Salvaje won’t be too surprised to learn that local restaurant Casa Maria has just been presented with a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence 2014.

TripAdvisor selections are made on the basis of comments and opinions of holiday makers and web users. The Certificates of Excellence are given to those restaurants who have received positive reviews and high ratings for hospitality, quality of service, as well, of course, as for the menu.

In a recent visit to the restaurant just opposite the plaza in the busy village resort, Adeje tourism councillor Rafael Dolado García congratulated the owners on their success. “Casa Maria has been operating for 27 years always working to improve their menu and offer quality service, proving that you don’t have to be a luxury establishment nor located along the ‘golden mile’ to be awarded a Certificate of Excellence, and this one is richly deserved”, he said.

Rafael Dolado added that it was also a huge boost to Adeje to see the Certificates of Excellence granted in various parts of the borough and they gave businesses an incentive to work to improve and continue to offer top quality services.
