Ate here at lunchtime. I had the sole and it was absolutely huge. My partner had the hake and said it was very good. The service was prompt and friendly. I love the papas arrugadas here (salted potatoes in the skin with a red mojo (garlic) sauce. Good value too.

I never review but in this case I must. We arrived and were totally ignored by the waiter who then came over and basically hissed at us. We ordered a mojito and a sangria. The mojito was made with dried mint yes that's right dried mint it was undrinkable. The waiters couldn't care less about us or what we wanted.... More

What a wonderful day was spent in Maspalomas! We decided to go to this restaurant along the beach, and the Paella was delicious. The service was also great. If you want to have a spanish Paella, I would totally recommend this restaurant

Had lunch here. The food is excellent and generous, and the Sangria is epic. Great for people watching. Empty in the evenings.

Really good salads with masses of fries, very good indeed and justifies the price. Fresh orange juice was outstanding, staff marvellous, views great. Highly recommended

When we first arrived, we struggled to get served...not sure why. We moved to a different part of the restaurant and all of sudden we started getting 'better' service...quite bizarre. Anyway, the view from the restaurant is stunning and the location could not be bettered. When we did eventually get served, it was quite good...would definitely come back, it's worth... More

We walked from Playa del Ingles along the beach until we came to Maspalomas so we needed lunch. As we walked past all the beach front Restaurants we came to the last one El Senador. It has a nice view overlocking the beach on the sea front. We both ordered Salads - the Ceasar was different from a normal one... More

The sole... More
