“We don’t create recipes, we create emotions”

The vision and mission of the project is to become a culinary reference, both nationally and internationally,
offering the discovery of original gastronomic proposals and the delight of a unique meal.

The values of the restaurant go hand in hand with the trajectory conveyed by Europe Hotels International, of being committed to tradition, respect, dedication, effort and joint collaboration.


The culinary concept of the Taste 1973 Restaurant is born from the memory of the island’s gastronomy and especially from the south of the island, where Europe Hotels International has been a pioneer in implementing this project.

After more than 40 years of experience in the tourism sector, in response to the growth of the national culinary sector, the aim is to accentuate, promote, encourage and disseminate a creative and avant-garde gastronomic experience.

A progress of overcoming and strength that now derives in the creation of a new gastronomic concept in the municipality, thanks to the integration of a creative and current spirit.
