We dropped into Banderas simply as we were looking for a decent Tapas restaurant in Maspalomas and we were so pleased we did - we returned several more times. The food is simply excellent, while the service and the atmosphere is very friendly and laid back. Their Tapas selection is pretty extensive covering both warm and cold dishes and offering... More

Went here because of the reviews but it didn't live up. Started with a mojito tasted like lemon so we switched to sangria which was descent not great. Had beautiful Iberian ham, shrimp in garlic that was tasteless, bbq ribs were soft but lacked any real flavor, calamari rings were good but again served with no sauces. Highlight was the... More

Just back from Gran Canaria last week and have to say this was one of the best tapas restaurants i have ever eaten in, from the flavours of food and staff friendliness it was brilliant from start to finish, it was that good i went a second night and will definitely return again some day soon.

The restaurants offer a very relaxed atmosphere, the service is... More

We came here the last night of our holiday and thoroughly enjoyed it. Our hotel pre-booked a table for 7.30 but it was not too busy then but got busier so if you want to eat later perhaps book ahead. Not being an expert on Tapas we asked the waiter for his advice. He served us a selection of 5... More

We stopped here to try the Pre-Fixe Lunch which looked interesting. It was quite good, we also tried a few of the tapas plates which were excellent. The seating area is very nice, and the food, atmosphere and service were all quite good. We went again a second time for dinner and we weren't disappointed.

Have eaten here a number of times whilst on holiday over the last three years! The tapas is very, very good and my family and I thoroughly enjoy our meals - my favourite tapas bar anywhere! Food looks appetising when served so even my children are happy to try the prawns, calamari, codfish, etc. Very good customer service from the... More

The food here was by far the best we found in Maspalomas (which we now know is rather sparse on traditional Spanish Tapas restaurants!). The Octopus was great, the Steak was brilliant and the Croquettes & Aubergines were delicious. The service was great and the decor was warm and welcoming. So good we broke our rule not to eat in...
