The first time we went we arrived at 12:45 and the waitress walk right passed us and went off down the steps. When she finally arrived back and we asked for the menu she handed us a breakfast menu. We asked for a lunch menu and we were told to walk around the place for half an hour and come... More

As you can see I reply to all reviews good or bad, but this one I can't understand I think you may have had too much to drink on your holiday, or You were in another bar. For starters we don't have any steps, as we're on ground level, You would never be told... More

We have been to The Auld Triangle often, its the only place to go for good food, drink and a good nights entertainment.The friendliness of Dave, Maria and Dave junior and Christine rubs off on the customers who all enjoy themselves in the evening until late.

We were looking for a place to recover from jet lag with lunch. After looking at all the restaurants we chose this one - prominently displaying their TripAdvisor certificate of excellence helped!

A lovely friendly run pub with that local feel to it. Nice reasonably priced home made food. Matagorda a bit off the track from the main strip. But the centre where this is located is well worth a visit.

Ive been going to Gran Canaria every year since 1990. The Triangle was the first pub I ever went into. The owner Brendan made me feel like part of the furniture from day one and he and his wife Christina and Sue became great friends of ours over the years.
