This restaurant was the first open at the end of the promenade so on a very hot day we fell into the first available seats. We had drinks first and then food. The salad we shared was lovely and very well presented. The chips appeared home-made & were very tasty. The focaccia was great and we shared a tiramisu- very... More

This restaurant would be great already if it would be somewhere else but there in front of the beach, with a spetacular view of the ocean, makes it amazing. Me and my boyfriend got a tip from a native friend that said we should try this place. And we loved it and until today we keep going back everythime we... More

Over the course of several years, we've been here three times. The food is good. Not extremely good, but tasty, honest and not too expensive. Go for pasta or seafood, as it always is fresh. The staff is always in a hurry. Always. They don't look you in the eye, or seem to hear you want to try to speak... More

We were looking to try a different part of Meloneras and had decided on El Pescador, which gets great reviews in tripadvisor. However, when we arrived, they were closed. Perhaps it was because it was a Sunday, but best to check if you want to go there. In any event, Ciao Ciao, El Pescador and several other restaurants are part... More

A lovely seaside family-friendly restaurant in an otherwise largely deserted seafront shopping centre this has a wide-ranging Italian-based menu and good children's choices too. Stand-outs for me were the clam linguine and pizza vesuvio, other family members loved the avocado prawns. The panna cotta dessert was rich, creamy and delicious, as we're the many sundaes on offer. Staff are good... More

The food was good - we just had pizzas...The service very pleasant, the location nice, at the seafront... However, I prefer more exclusive places. But, if you look for an easy place, right at the beach side, with parking places close... you will probably enjoy this one.

We have visited this restaurant every year for last 10 years and always been good, but unfortunately tonight was just shocking, I took some friends over and i wish I didn't as it was just embarrassing. Service was shocking, all our steaks were under cooked and fillet steaks were full of fats, the only explanation from one of the waiters... More

Ciao ciao is a nice restaurant. Its decore is nice is really what i mean. Everytime we eat there I always come away feeling the service is bad and the food is over priced. We are coming to grand canaria for over 30 years and have eaten in many restaurants on the island. Once a year we say sure we'll... More

We have used this restaurant many times during our many visits over recent years to Meloneras. From the minute we walk in we are made to feel very special. The atmosphere inside the restaurant or outside by the seafront is always very relaxing. The food and service is always excellent and it is very reasonably priced. We like the location... More
