Beautiful place and food with a friendly welcome

Went to Minanas twice within the space of a week while in Gran Canaria for our first time. What a fantastic place! Whilst not cheap, the food is top class (I'm talking Masterchef but hearty) and it's a little off the beaten track. Order the lamb shoulder for two, 24 hours ahead. Just lush... read more

We have just returned from a wonderful evening at Minanos, it was a perfect end to our holiday. The wine,food,staff atmosphere could not be faulted. If we ever come back to Gran Canaria we would certainly return. Loved it

Me and my boyfriend visited Minanas on the last night of our holiday and were only disappointed that we hadn't discovered this sooner. The ambience was good. The owner was friendly as was the staff. The steak... I can say is the best in gran canaria, I asked for medium, and got medium, a rare occurrence it seems! The chips... More

... and they know it, we came without a reservation and were met by an arrogant attitude, so I actually considered leave before we got our table. I am glad we did not, very good food and good wine, compared to the rest of the rest of the "valley" it is really good value for money as well, even if... More

Recommended to us by fellow guests we booked and weren't disappointed. A small homely restaurant beautifully furnished where you are made to feel special by the owner and staff. The menu tempts your tastebuds and lives up to the promise ...... enjoy!

Returned to Minanas after visiting last year and hoped it would not be a let down, we needn't of panicked as it was fantastic once again. Not only is Minanas the best restaurant in PR it is one of the very best the entire island has to offer. Small family living room feel to the restaurant and that personal touch... More

Just thought I would also congratulate the team at Minanas for 2 excellent nights. We have been to Puerto Rico around Easter time for the last couple of years and have made a point to visit this excellent restaurant - recommended to us by family. We had, between us, the Duck, Liver, Seafood Paella and Salmon main courses all excellent.... More
