Pizzeria/Restaurante Zebra Maria

Located on the main Carretera Botanico in the La Paz area of Puerto de a Cruz, across the street and down from the Hotel Botanico is the Pizzeria-Restaurante Zebra Maria.

A popular restaurant for over 25 years, it has been one of the few that stays open through from 13:00 until 23:30.

The four separate dining areas are comprised of: the outer patio and side enclosed gallery, both which are smoking areas, to the windowed porch at the entrance and the interior dining room which are smoke-free.

Here you will see groups of both Spanish locals and tourists ordering from their menu of pizzas, pastas and international food.

Along with your drinks comes a starter dish of cheese, olives, maiz and chorizo nibbles . Good for a starter are the thick rounds of toasted garlic bread.

Thin, crispy pizzas come in seven varieties, ranging in price from €6.00 to €8.00. My favourite is the Pizza Cariñosa, with onion, chicken, cheese and ham.One dish which has been on the menu for many years is the Escalope Zebra Maria, a pork schnitzel topped with baked banana, bechamel and gravy, served with chips and cole slaw. I especially like the shrimp cocktail, which is served in an elegant presentation bowl.

The Sole Tout Paris, similar to the Sole Walesa, is topped with shrimp, lobster sauce, bechamel and piped potato. Spaghetti a la carbonara is another dish they do well. The thick vegetable soup topped with egg, “Sopa de Lupita” is delicious and is almost a meal in itself.

Solomillo Robin Hood is another good dish, accompanied by mushrooms, chips and gravy. Dame Blanche is a rich chocolate ice cream dessert.

Some prices: Solomillo €14.00; Sole Tout Paris €12.50; Escalope Zebra Maria €10.50; Shrimp Cocktail €10.50; Spaghetti a la Carbonara €7.75; Two bratwurst sausages with potatoes and red beet salad €7.00; Eggs, bacon, tomato, fries €5.00; Garlic Bread €3.00; 1 CCC beer €2.00; Glass of house wine €2.50; Cafe cortado or solo €1.30.

The service can sometimes be a little slow, so go there when you have plenty of time.

Otherwise I would recommend this restaurant, especially for the dishes mentioned.

During shopping hours, you can use the pay parking lot next door at Supermarket 2000 (Spar.)

Pay parking charges inside supermarket or free if you buy something there.

  1. this restaurant is so beautiful for me… I used to go with my grandfather when I was just a girl… It’s good news to know that it is still open… Right now I’m going mad for a Solomillo Zebra María. Thank you very much.
