The location right beside the beach is very pleasant. We sat here for drinks a couple of times after a day at the beach, and were rather pleased by their very generous (and pretty heady) sangrias. The restaurant doesn't appear to have anything outstandingly special to differentiate it from any other similar one, but truly, the food here is surprisingly... More

We are a family of five and recently stayed in Maspalomas for a week. We wanted to have a special meal for our last night and were sadly recommended this restaurant. As some others experienced.. The attitude of the waiters was appalling, with our menus almost slammed on the table. It took around ten minutes before I had to ask... More

This is the place where I ate calamari for the first time and started loving it! Also the crabs of all kind are very good. Although it's located by the boardwalk it's very cosy and nice. It's easy with kids, too, due the beach and space on the backyard. I've had lunch in El Senador everytime I've visited Gran Canaria... More

Do think of this place as of a beach bar with large sitting area, good food, nice view & solid floors instead of sand - and you will not get disappointed. The food is really good; depending on the time of the day the service can be fast or not :-( There is one special thing about this place -... More

Come here for a nice meal, or just for cocktails, just 3 metres from the sea. Not cheap but a lovely spot.

.....but the service leaves a lot to wich for. We had different fish diches that were all excellent. The location is great but you dont feel that the staff is especially interested in you as their guest
