Description: The restaurant “La Aquarela” is located in front of the ocean in Patalavaca, in the south of Gran Canaria. It opened more than 20 years ago with one goal, to offer the pleasure of tasting a refined cuisine in a privileged environment.After several years of an excellent reputation, it was actually from 1994 the restaurant La Aquarela rounded it qualities with the arrival of its new owner, Gregorio Fernández.Gregorio not only continues with the reputation of the restaurant on the island, but also rather consolidates its name, making it a reference.In its constant evolution, the restaurant knows how to combine the quality and consistency, offering its distinguished clientele a place to return, a place to enjoy self-indulgent moments.

“An oasis of luxury”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2013

We visited twice in December, once for Tapas with delectable dishes such as Foie Gras, Marlin Sashimi, Confit Duck Croquettes and Mini Duck Burger. The tapas is always preceded by an Amuse Bouche and bread which is charged at 2.70 but its worth treble that for the flavours you are presented with.
We returned for a special dinner with enertainment by the talented and amusing Mario on Piano. Service was exceptional, food was perfection and the whole atmosphere was just what was needed to make everyone relax and enjoy themselves. Im already looking forward to returning next December. They make "Their English friends" so welcome.

“Outstanding! Fine dining!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

Recommended to us by a restaurant owner in Puerto de Mogan, who said this was their favourite restaurant on Gran Canaria, so we booked and decided to jump in a taxi and travel twenty minutes for dinner. The location is a little strange within an apartment rental block, but once you reach the restaurant, it's just lovely. We sat overlooking the pool with great views out but had to sit inside after our delightful amuse bouche and starters, as it became too windy. The restaurant inside was very busy with a great atmosphere. Staff were attentive. The food was absolutely delicious, in fact, outstanding! The whole dining experience was superb and would recommend to anyone. Not sure if it is open in the daytime? Fabulous evening had by all!

“This is the best restaurant on the Ireland.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

I have been visiting Gran Canaria for more than 30 years.

The last 8 years i always visit Restaurant La Aquarela 3-5 times when i am on vacation.
It’s a very nice place with excellent food, nice staff and good service.

I can highly recommend you to visit La Aquarela when you are on the Canary Islands.

I visit every year a couple of restaurants with one or two stars in the Guide Michelin,
in Norway and Europe, La Aquarela is as good as many restaurants with two stars.

This is the best restaurant on the Ireland.
You have to try!
