Always good food, friendly atmosphere

We always try to fit in a meal at La Aquarela when visiting the Gran Canaria, have done so now for about 15 years, and they never disappoint. A small blip this time around though, one of the guests (we were four people) got a different main dish from what was ordered. This was of course rectified... read more

Somehow we managed to miss this restaurant on our Decembrr visit but, having found it on Tripadvisor, we booked in advance this time around. There us a neon sign for the place on top of a not too special looking hotel and our trepidation increased as we trekked through a hotel reception and across a parade of little shops to... More

We decided to book this for a Friday night after reading many complimentary comments on Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed. There were 5 of us and we booked the larger 5/6 courses taster menu with pairings of wine. The food was delightful, service exceedingly good and we thoroughly enjoyed the piano player up in the corner. We will... More

La Aquarela offers an exceptional service with wonderful food and a beautiful view, what more could you ask for? There is a pianist present on occasion, so I would definitely recommend booking a table for a night when he is there; it will truly enhance your dining experience. If it is the tasting menu you are after, I would suggest... More

This is clearly one of the best restaurants on Gran Canaria and we were glad we chose to have dinner here albeit that in hindsight it would have been nicer to have saved it for our last night. We went on a Wednesday night and there were plenty of tables but to make sure of one of the outdoor poolside... More

We selected this restaurant because of it's recommendations on Trip Advisor and indeed a great decision. The restaurant is a bit difficult to find but well worth the 20 minute trip from nearby Maspalonas. Delicious food, fantastic white glove service and a very pleasant atmosphere with soft live guitar background music. A good wine selection is also available.

Came here for my partner's birthday dinner and management was outstanding. We've been to GC 4 times before and my mantra has always been: "you don't go to Spain for the food". This was a game changer. We honestly felt like we were in a michelin starred restaurant. The tasting menu was fantastic, every effort was made to ensure we... More

Booked a table on Christmas night for my wife and I and were immediately shown to a lovely table outside and near the Piano Player...very romantic. Started with a couple of glasses of cava whilst we perused the menu and ordered the Cream of watercress Soup and Chateaubriand. To begin the Amuse Buche was a visual and taste delight of... More
