When visiting Gran Canaria you must not be picky about the food. This place on top of a tasteless hotel complex actually offers surprisingly good food for a very afordable price. Do not miss.

I wanted so much to give 5 points but... Welcome at the restaurant was great and promising. Starters were ok but then we notice some problems. We ordered chateabriaud and it was medium like we ordered. But after that we have to asked about that red wine which we order when we arrive, we have to also ask sauce because... More

We went twice for dinner and a couple of times to the lounge. It is located on the rooftop of the Gloria Palace Hotel in San Agustin. This means that you have a spectacular view over the bay of San Agustin and can see the dunes of Maspalomas. The lounge is nicely done with an Arabic touch. The restaurant has... More

The view from the 9th floor of Gloria Palace is amazing and the table settings are beautiful, really atmospheric. You are given amuse buche (they aren't complimentary) and suggestions from the waiter off of the menu. The waiter was slightly pushy with his suggestions, we had a large lunch so didn't want three courses but he had to keep asking... More

We stayed at the gloria palace and the gorbea is situated on the top floor. We were seated by the window and the view was stunning. The food was very good as well and because we were residents of the hotel we got 10% off. Would definitely recommend this establishment.

Gorbea prides itself on service and presentation. The waiters are great at serving, but it's the kind of restaurant where you get a small piece of fish on a large plate, with sauce-graffiti all over it. Depends on what kind of person you are, I personally prefer a place where I get a normal size meal, and I don't have... More

Elegant restaurant with well spoken and well trained staff. The view was fantastic. It was expensive, but that would have been fine with me if the portions were not half the size of the ones you get everywhere else. I am usually more than OK with one mail meal, but here you do need the starter, the main meal and... More

On the recommendation of the Seaside Palm beach reception staff we booked a table for a meal at the Gorbea while holidaying in Gran Canaria. My husband planned this as a surprise for a special wedding anniversary. On arrival at the restaurant, on the 9th floor, we were led to a table overlooking the Gloria Hotel and San Augustine bay....

I cannot recommend the Gorbea restaurant highly enough. From the moment we stepped into the restaurant the service was exceptional. Mr Aleman is an outstanding host, with superb staff that make everyone feel at home. We started with an aperitif and a couple of amuse bouche,then between three of us (my husband and 7 year old daughter) had two starters... More
