Situated in one corner of Paseo de las Canteras, is a must to have a seat there, outside in the terrace, and just look at the people walking in Las Canteras. Queso frito, calamares, vueltas, local cheese, berenjenas fritas con miel de palma. A bottle of white wine or just local beer, very cold.

We have eaten here before and the tapas are great. However today we just stopped for drinks. We had a wonderful couple of hours enjoying the hospitality of this smashing place. Will definitely try for evening meal one day as the food still looks good and it has a great ambiance and is always very busy

Generous portions. Good view over the bay. Friendly staff. Ask about the fish of the day.... you won't be disappointed! We had an evening meal here and enjoyed it very much.

We ate here several times for lunch whilst on holiday in Las Palmas. The service was excellent and food was amazing. Very good size portions. They do half size plates of many dishes so that you can share with your partner. Wine only 2euro a glass and they were not small glasses either and very good wine. We spent many... More

Waited over an hour. Our waitress seemed very disinterested, another waitress came to ask if we had ordered, which we had. She discovered our waitress had not placed the order. We were then told it's a problem with the kitchen. No apology was offered. Don't waste your time.

We had lunch there yesterday. The fish dishes we had were different types of fried fish, the oil that had been used was rancid, something we unfortunatly only noticed an hour later when our stomaches rebelled. Horrible taste in the mouth. The Canarian style potatoes with the meal were stale, all in all not a success story!

LaOliva, Propietario at La Oliva Restaurant, responded to this review

We only use extra virgin olive oil when cooking and we change it every day. We have even a deep-fryer for each type of product. And we have six of it. So it's impossible the oil to be rancid in our restaurant. In all case, we're very sorry your experience with us wasn't quite right. It's a restaurant policy to... More

We ordered two fish dishes: both were uncompletely cooked. They accepted to take them back to the kitchen. We received the same fishes back better cooked. No excuse ...
