When José Rouco Carreira arrived in the Canary Islands in 1981, he knew that he wanted to revolutionize the restaurant sector on the islands. His goal was ambitious, to create a restaurant model that would work for any diner.
It began in 1988 with the opening of a small snack bar offering sandwiches and tapas, and with that knowledge and experience he decided to open in that same year Compostelana Avenida, a restaurant with Mediterranean cuisine that adapted to the palate of locals and of tourists, and it would go on to mark the style of the entire group.
