Pool, beach and sunset view. Live piano music of the great type so hard to find. So many waiters I stopped counting, yet helpful, discrete and very very competent. Food just fantastic. Truly gourmet. A precious gem in Gran Canarias endless wilderness of mediocre or even crappy food scene. Saved our holiday! But please ban smoking in the restaurant!

We visited La Aquarela last year and I gave a well-deserved rave review. This time we were a bit disappointed overall. Marks lobster bisque was excellent - better than Que Tal the following evening. I had a Tuna sushi type starter but it was a bit too minimalist. I had a similar starter at Enoteca a couple of days later... More

This is the best restaurant on the island. The food and service is excellent in every aspect. The place is our favorite! Although a bit expensive, it is worth it!

The food was absolutely delicious! The tenderloin was as tender as butter and the chocolate dessert was to die for. So was the caramel-walnut icecream. Service was great!! We'll be back!

First of all you should make a reservation right in time before you plan to visit this restaurant. Otherwise you will not get a table or you only can sit outside. After getting inside you will get seated. When you have taken your seat and have got your menue card and have made your decision a waiter or responsible person... More

This place is fantastic. The food is ever so good, we had chateaubriand, although it was done slightly rarer than we asked for, was really very good, and wine and amuse bouche were excellent. Service also excellent. Recommended.

This was a lovely restaurant meal. We visited on the Friday when the restaurant have a piano player. Lovely setting sitting out by the pool overlooking the sea. We went for the Gourmand menu which was excellent. Service was good and attentive. The courses were explained well and we really enjoyed the extras offered before the meal and with coffee.... More
