Great Sizzling shrimps & best sangria, not cheap quite expensive but worthwhile from time to time. Great place to sit after visiting the beach

Sit on the second row to avoid hawkers, first row next to the boardwalk if you want to shop and drink.

This is a sophisticated restaurant which is directly on the beach serving high quality fare to the discerning. We had a table which was centimetres from the beach. In fact we could touch the sand from our seats! The view was spectacular... The wait staff are friendly and efficient and quickly took our order for the house special paella (for... More

Luckily we found this place just past the Lighthouse right on the beach and had a great time. The view is marvelous and the food excellent. We has some disappointments previously on the Faro shopping boulevard. They server hand pressed fresh orange juice and fresh foods on the prefect location. Highly recommend it as an alternative to the Hotel and... More

My partner and I just enjoyed a beautiful evening here with wonderful food. Having eaten here a number of times I wasn't disappointed this time either. It was wonderful. The seafood we both enjoyed was delicious and we rounded off our evening with cocktails to the sound of the waves brushing the shore but feet away. Heaven!

Also a good lunch spot - especially if you sit right by the sea. Pricey - but usually very good. Sizzling prawns in garlis are excellent - and the service is very quick and efficient.

We were in Gran Canaria last year and went to El Senador three times, including for my birthday dinner. The memories of those meals were a big part of our decision to go back to the same resort this year, which we hardly ever do. It's so lovely sitting right on the beach, drinking Torres wine and eating lovely seafood.... More

A very good restaurant right on the picturesque seafront situated on the walkway from the lighthouse towards the dunes at Maspalomas. The menu is varied and had a selection of seafood. There is a large variety of paella available in a range of prices; we tried the one with lobster and langoustine. This was nicely cooked. We also had anchovies... More

The middle aged owner ruined the atmosphere. He was grumpy and rude for no reason. It was the only place we refused to tip. Even though we were very polite to him he continued to act as though we had murdered his granny. The elder owner, who I assume was his father, was very friendly and kind to our son,... More
