We have asked one taxi driver for a location with traditional spanish cuisine, so he recommended EL Carreton. It was our firdt day in Canary. Around 14:00 only one table was occupied, so I can't rate the atmosphere. Wehave ordered two traditional spanish soups and garlic bread as starters. The bread was delicious! The soup is little sour, as it... More

Pleasantly surprised! If you're looking for grilled meat and chips, this place is a cut above anything you'll find at Yumbo Center, more generous portions, perfectly prepared and great value. Thin crust pizza was top notch as well. 24 euro per person incl starter, main, wine and coffee. Will return!!!

Heard about this restaurant from our Thompson rep. We ended up eating here on several occasions and the food and staff were amazing. It seems like a place where a lot of locals eat. My boyfriend loves his steaks and he was amazed by the size of the steaks he got. A massive T-bone steak was €16 and was very... More

We were looking for somewhere different to eat other than our hotel (Gran Canaria Princess) and this was just across the road. A Thompson rep told us that this was the place all the locals ate and never had a bad word to say about the place. We ordered a dish called the steak provencal which was to share. It... More

Tapas excellent, but lunch menu not great, ordered a burger, it was lukewarm on top, ice cold underneath, seemed to be chopped meat, when cut open, not cooked. Waiter said no-one ever complained before! Service with a sneer!

The food here is fantastic. Steak and chicken especially for us were lovely. All cooked in front of you over coals. Adds so much flavor. Highly recommend.

The restaurant is discreetly positioned but once inside seemed bigger than expected. We went during the World Cup so the atmosphere was somewhat altered by that. All in all, the restaurant was very good. I had a mixed grill and it was great value and a joy to eat. The meat was very flavoursome and perfectly cooked. In all, the... More

Great Steak at a great price including wine! worth a visit if you like your meat! Staff could be a little better trained but they have been there for years so it is understandable

Based on the reviews, we were expecting something quite special - but the whole experience was rather disappointing. The restaurant was reasonably busy but we were not made to feel very welcome. A previous reviewer used the word "surly" to describe the staff, and that was a good description. Everything is very efficient, but rather clinical - no warmth or... More
