Both visits excellent, having eaten in various one and two starred restuarantes, this compares very easliy on all fronts, setting, superb, staff presentation and attention to detail superb and...

It has been two years since we visited here, but went twice during our stay at Anfi. The food and service is quite simply superb. On our two visits we had the set menu with wine tasting then the next visit had the 7 course Tapas menu. Although it is expensive compared to other restaurants in the area it is... More

Still keep coming back, all because of the quality of the food and service. I know the people here very well now, and they know me - it's like coming home. Always come here at least twice each time i visit GC, two/three times a year. This is dining you would pay much much more for where i come from... More

To say La Aquarela is difficult to find would be unfair. There is a large sign along the main road that is obvious and lit. To say that the Spanish postcode (is it a postcode?) when typed into 'maps' on an iPhone dropped my wife and I in a random spot by the coast is more accurate. It was unfortunately... More

and quite well hidden as the place is in a middle of built up area, with a few not very inspiring buildings/hotels nearby and just a blue neon sign to signal its location. You actually have to go through one of the hotels's lobby to get there. Once you are there though everything is welcoming, very pleasant setup and atmosphere,... More

Fantastic food and excellent staff. We had the gourmet menu, 5 courses of just fantastic dishes and top class presentation. The well trained staff is just a pleasure to be served by. It's bit cheap... but worth every penny :)))))

I've read a number of reviews where people say the best on the Island and when I've tried them I've been disappointed. Now I will think well clearly they've never eaten at La Aquarela because it's undoubtedly the best one I've been to so far. This is a really professional place from the starched table linen, through the excellent wine... More
