Another shopping centre in Tenerife is the El Mirador Shopping Centre in the Playa del Duque area. It is a little like shopping in a typical Canarian village, in the way it has been designed, with its narrow streets, which open into little squares where you can sit for a while to relax. The emphasis is on independently owned shops rather than chains, so expect to find quality goods offered with traditional service. There is a artisan market which runs every 1st and 3rd Sunday of each month. Local artists and craftsmen come to offer their wares, dressed in traditional costumes and with local musicians who entertain the shoppers. To top it all there are restaurants and cafes where you can enjoy refreshment.

Micky O’Malleys Bar and Restaurant

Mickey O'Malleys Bar

An Irish pub situated below the Sunset Bay Club in Torviscas.

Micky O’Malleys is an Irish pub situated below the Sunset Bay complex in Torviscas.  Therefore it is conveniently located for the Orlando complex, which is very close by. The bar was opened in 2007 by Micky and Marina.

Newcomers to the bar will be surprised by Micky, perhaps expecting him to have a broad Irish accent. But infact, although Irish through and through, he was brought up in England and has a London accent. Marina does the cooking and is very personable and chatty. She is very welcoming to all the customers.

The bar serves food during the day, up to around 6pm in the evening. The full English breakfast is very well spoken of. Some people say the poached eggs are the best in Tenerife. The Sunday roast is also very popular and the rib eye steak very well praised. The portions are very generous but there are also items on the menu for lighter eaters and OAPs.

On TripAdvisor the bar has been awarded with a Certificate of Excellence and has been rated no 5 out of 175 bars and restaurants in Torviscas.
