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 :)))))

Excellent food, excellent staff and attractive surroundings. We dined at the restaurant three days in one week and we will definitely come back on our next trip to Gran Canaria.

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

We had the pleasure of dining in this restaurant on two separate occasions - first on my birthday and on our last night. The first night was spent in the wine bar where we were delighted with the Festival of Tapas for my birthday and then when it exceeded our expectations, we went back on our last night to try... More

We had this restaurant recommended as - the- place to have a real experience of gourmet restaurants. This is no offence to all the good ones around the village. This is absolutely as another advisor wrote : michelin 2 star without the price level . The restaurant is situated inside the aquamarina complex - tripadvisors map is wrong !!! So... More

We ate two nights here - once at the Wine Bar and once in the restaurant. In the wine bar we had their Festival of Tapas. It was amazing - a leap of faith worth taking. The restaurant meal was for my husbands birthday. It was a Friday night so the lovely Mario was playing. Which provided the perfect backdrop... More
