    So it looks like imported lamb then which seems to be acceptable to me as the lamb I've eaten in Tenerife is lovely

    I agree, the lamb we have had has been great but normally part of an Indian meal ie Lamb rogan josh etc. The fresh stuff we have seen is normally a bit scrawny.

    I really enjoy a lamb Karai ( not sure of spelling ) but the taste and texture seems to compliment a curry.

    I'm not sure if it's factual or not, but I was told by one of the chefs at the Balti Balti restaurant in Los Cristianos that the marinate the lamb for 24 hours in lemon juice, plus other ingredients, (which he would not say what they were) to make the lamb tender and succulent.

    Sounds great, I've only tried the Indian restaurants in San Blas so it's worth a trip out!

    I remember a few weeks ago that someone who ofton eats at the Balt Balti and that they recommended on this forum another Indian restaurant, which I think is in a small central square in Los Cristianos and there is a bar close by named The Fountain, I do know that it's very close to the Timberland outlet. I intend to give that a try in May, for my favourite dish which is Lamb Biryani.

    The Fortuna restaurant for its lamb is one of our special nights out and has been for many years....excuse the expression, but when you have finished your meal, then you feel like a 'Stuffed Pig', not a lamb!!

    We actually stopped eating at Fortuna and moved to Fortuna Nuevo because the meals at Fortuna were soooooo big
    Lovely but embarrassed to leave so much good food
