very good price/value

Very good price/value..quantity is big without losing in quality...not a touristic place, with a menu quite focused on local and traditional choices...very good and kind service (got a free cake, when they were casually aware of my birthday..)

I can't believe it's taken me so long to finally discover this place! Now we've eaten their 3 times in the last 3 weeks and each time has been fantastic. The menu del día is brilliant value at 13,00 for a starter, main course, desert, bread and drink. It's a bit more expensive than other menus del día but the... More

We enjoyed a fish meal here and found the staff very welcoming and all too happy to explain their menu in English; they also offer some very reasonably priced local wines. The desserts looked rather disappointing (as in most Canarian restaurants), so we stuck with a starter and dessert. A taxi from Maspalomas is about 4 euros - a worthwhile... More

Take a taxi and come out here. This very typical Spanish Restaurant is worth the drive away from the tourist traps. Have the tapas! Chose them all, one is better than the next. I think after that you don't really need a main course but you can have fresh fish or meat. Both is good. The wines - we had... More

Make the effort to head inland and seek out this authentic local taverna, easily accessed by taxi. Super welcome, very clean and great service. A great menu with beautifully described daily specials. Something for everyone, various meat and fish dishes and lovely selection of tapas. Very reasonable pricing and great wine selection. A definite improvement from the tourist traps at... More

We were convinced from our first visit: excellent food, very well prepared, perfect service. It was a real pleasure returning several times and enjoy this hidden treasure! Simply one of the best restaurants on the islands for your money!

Good menu, excellently cooked and presented. One of the best restaurants in the Playa del Ingles/Maspalomas/San Fernando area. Comfortable seating with plenty of space. Food prepared and served in a family restaurant atmosphere. Recommended - Rack of lamb and carajacas de higado (liver prepared Canarian style).

My wife and I were fortunate to visit Gran Canaria recently and we radomly selected El Salsete to dine one evening. Admittedly the restaurant is a little difficult to find but it is truly a hidden treasure! The hospitality, the atmosphere, the wine selection and OH MY GOODNESS...the food was delightful. I don't know when or if I will have... More
