Quite small and busy restaurant. It was packed with people at 8pm! But the staff was very friendly and nice and got us a table within 2 minutes. The food was tasty and very price worthy. Also the wine and beer was cheap but good as well.

Decided to try El Brasero as it advertised a high rating on Trip Adviser. What a (short lived) experience. Although there were a choice of tables at the time we were told "You sit there" in a very abrupt manner. Before we had chance to sit down we had menu`s shoved in our hands & even before we had settled... More

Kids menu was good, offered items other than chips! Food was nice enough, although I agree with other comments, it wasn't very spicy for Mexican. Nice atmosphere Not a bad choice

We wanted to eat mexican food, so we went to El Brasero. It was a mistake, the food did not taste anything.The staff was quick and friendly and the food was cheap. Otherwise there is little good to say about El Brasero.

Have visited Gran Canaria many times over 15 years. We have known the 'younger locals' who have now grown up and moved onto pastures new. We have known them in a variety of jobs within various restaurants & bars. We remember 'Rashid' who renovated the restaurant but is no longer part of it. The chef (forgot his name) is still... More

I always like to try T Bone Steak. On our first night arrive Puerto Rico we walk pass this restaurant, as usual the waiter act friendly to ask we could try their foods. He's showing me how fresh for their T bone steak and only cost 12 Euros. We decide sitting down to have our first meal at Gran Canaria.... More

I visited this restaurant based on the high score. I do agree with some of the other reviews on the service and staff, i found them to be very friendly and attentive. On my visit i asked for their recommendation on some tapas - They suggested some peppers, canarian potatoes, ham and chorizo. I wasnt expecting to get a big... More
