I admit I was dubious about this place in the beginning, but what amazing food!! The risotto was perfection, the cheeses and meats fresh and tasty, and the wine not too expensive Also had a pizza based bread as part of the starter and wow, light, crispy and full of flavour Will be visiting again before I go home

Playa del Ingles may be one of theses places full of non interesting restaurants, where they serve unpersonal and average quality food. Finding something authentic is a real gem, and a pleasure to taste their italian specialities. We discovered Al Circo in our holidays in March, and we have repeated twice in our November's break with friends. First night we... More

It did us at first but give it a whirl, great food, service and prices. Its located underneath the Tinache Apartments on the corner of Avenue... More

While I really like a good pizza, I generally don't order one in a restaurant that offers a wide range of food. Al Circo is an exception. The pizza is so good that it seems a shame to bypass it. On my arrival this time in Gran Canaria, I felt too tired to cook for myself after my 4 1/2... More

If this restaurant wasn't closing for holiday the day after our visit, we would have come back again within the week we were there. The food was so fresh and tasty, the aubergine cheese and tomato layered starter was a big hit, seafood pizza and pasta was just Devine. For 6 people we all had starters, mains, desserts, couple of... More

I went here in 2013 and 2014 several times. The first sign of a good restaurant: you can see the cook preparing the fresh food. The meals are well prepared, tastefull and fresh. The menu offers good variety. I will be back!

Directed by the very friendly (but not pushy) lady tout outside. This restaurant is difficult to find as it is under a very large apartment block & you go in from inside the building. The décor is very dull & really the tables look unattractive when you walk in. The staff are friendly but scruffy. All the pasta & pizza... More

Have been to Al Circo twice on my stay, and both times the food and service were superb. Tucked away from the main centres, this place is a treasure.
