Friendly staff, good food, good price!

All the restaurants that run along this strip behind the beach look the same with similar menus. Basic food like shish kebabs with chips and salad etc. This one is by far the best. Look for the staff in orange tops! They are really friendly...it's one of those places that entices you in with offers... read more

This should be our last evening so we followed recommendation which was a big mistake. Unfriedly to the uppermost frozen food from the worst quality ever seen. This restaurant is just existing to earn money with no existing value.

The menu at Don Quijote is the same as the menu at about 50 other restaurants close to the beach in Maspalomas. Good points: The menu is varied enough that you'll be able to feed everyone in even a large party with different tastes. It's not very expensive. Not so good: These beach-side restaurants are not the right place to... More

The food here was OK, it was formulaic and had nothing spectacular that other beach- side restaurants had. The service is average and the prices are medium. When our bill arrived it had 3 items on it that we hadn't ordered, so do check your bill when it arrives.

I came here for lunch and dinner everyday for my week stay in Gran Canaria. ALL of the staff here are welcoming, helpful & lovely people and the food is lovely! Recommended their chicken, cheese & salad baguettes for lunch. Definitely will be coming back here when I come back to gran canaria.

In the row of cafes and market style shops just behind the beach this little restaurant served the best seafood soup I have eaten for many years. Lots of prawns, mussels clams etc in a bisque base.

Stopped off here for a light dinner .... What a lovely place this is. The waiters are all very friendly but not overly obtrusive..... they even wave and say goodbye when you leave..... I had a lovely dinner, fillet of sole... and it was cooked perfectly and there was plenty of it. A nice find....
