The main restaurant in the Orquidea has a number of seating areas (families, adults only and outdoors) with self-serve soft drinks, wine, sangria, beer and juices.   Breakfast lunch and dinner is on offer here with a sample of foods included below: Breakfast: cereal bar, yoghurt & fruit counters, an abundance of bread and pastries, everything you would find in a full Irish, traditional Canarian cuisine, counters for salad, cheese and meats, pancakes, waffles and omelettes made to order.   Also on offer are gluten free products.

Lunch & dinner: they have everything, numerous counters offering hot and cold meats and fish, international and local cuisine, chefs at various stations cooking fresh food in sight of the guests. There are large salad and cheese counters, a broad selection of vegetables and vegetable dishes, baskets and baskets of various breads, shelves of sauces and dips with dishes varying daily.   Counters and counters of desserts and fresh fruits and a chocolate fountain that alternates between white and milk chocolate.

My advice - bring stretchy pants, stop in the bar for a cocktail pre-dinner for an added treat, chocolate covered croissants are sinful but delicious and if you eat all the nachos/cheese/salsa/guacamole they will still bring more.   Willpower is not my strong point.

Thomson provides a Lanyard for children to collect stickers from the reps for eating something new or healthy with a certificate on stage when all the stickers are collected - great to help encourage fussy eaters.   The main restaurant also has a separate area for children, at a height that preschoolers can see & pick what they would like.   While there are the favourites such as chips, nuggets and fish fingers, there are also loads of healthy options (e.g. beef & gravy, potatoes and peas; rice, chicken and sweetcorn etc.), pasta & sauces, salad bites (pepper sticks, cherry tomatoes etc.), fruit skewers, fruit smoothies and an ice cream counter with sprinkles and sauces to light up any little face.   Bamse the bear and Thomson the dog make regular appearances to say hi to the children and encourage best behaviour and appetites.
