We chose this restaurant because of the Paella that was written on the board outside. We felt very welcomed by the staff and comforted by the practically perfect English spoken by the female member of staff. We ordered 3 starters, the ham croquettes, cheese in honey and the padron peppers. The cheese was very tasty but the other two were... More

We had our lunch in this lovely restaurant during the Carnivale season in February. We sat outside overlooking the promanade and sea. Our waiter was really lovely, paid great attention to us and gave us great guidance in relation to the menu. The "Soggy Rice with Lobster" was fantastic! Basically like risotto but with more liquid than normal soaking lobsters,... More

Friendly staff, good food, and very nice restrooms. Paella was good, and winelist OK. Stylish interior.

Pick your Lobster or Crayfish from the display tank and sit at the elegantly set out tables enjoying a fine wine while your dish is prepared. Tables inside or outside on the Paseo overlooking the beach and watching people walking by. Not the cheapest restaurant but good location if you like to be along the sea front. Good service by...

Attentive waiters serve fresh fish, caught daily, with courtesy and detail. Meals are well-presented, with various options available. Be sure to try the tasty "house potatoes" with your entree. A good wine list is available and a variety of desserts are on the menu. Ate there three times during our week long visit!

The Restaurante Baluarte is a few minutes walk from our hotel and right beside the ocean front and beach. It is one of the nicest looking restaurants along the Playa de las Canteras stretch of restaurants. The ambience inside is really nice, good for a romantic evening out in a comfortable setting and it has nice decoration. We shared some... More

The restaurant was not expensive although it looked like it, and the food tasted delicious! If it hadn't been our last evening in Las Palmas, we would have eaten there several times.

too many staff each no knowing what the other was doing, chronically slow service. Food was fine but the service standard was the worst we have experienced in quite a while and ruined the whole meal. Price was fair and meal was good but unlikely to be an off day as there were plenty of staff evident they simply just... More

Together with a friend I recently visited this restaurant for coffee and cake in the late afternoon. We ordered coffee and apple tart and sat at a table on the Paseo (the restaurant was empty). The coffee was fine but the tart was the smallest portion I have ever received. Imagine our surprise when the bill arrived; €2 euros each... More

Should be more restaurants as good as this around but you have to experience the other bads to appreciate this place. *****... More
