“Wonderful place for foodies”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2013

We were really impressed by this restaurant. We went to Kitchen Lovers because of all the good reviews on tripadvisor. It was over and over our expectations, finally a restaurant that stands out for quality of food, presentation of dishes and customer service, amongst many average restaurants that you find on the Paseo de La Cantera. We stayed in Maspalomas in the south of the Island for 10 days but after our first time at Kitchen Lovers, we decided to go back another two times. It was so good, it was definitely worth the 30 min journey from Maspalomas.
We tried pretty much everything on the menu, but what really impressed us was the "Arroz Caldoso" which is like a risotto dish with Lobster cooked in a delicious stock, which tasted like nothing we tasted before, EPIC DISH!
We also highly recommend the "Solomillo"(filet) with handmade mushroom butter, truffle oil and crispy chunky chips on the side.
Amazing selection of wines, Clara the waitress was exceptional at suggesting the perfect wine for our dinners. If you just pass by for a drink make sure you have Clara's mojito, in London you can hardly find one so tasty and balanced guys.
The price is very reasonable, just bear in mind that every ingredient comes directly from Italy, Iberian Peninsula and from the best markets in the area. They make their own bread and focaccia aswell as fresh pasta which shows the passion that these 3 guys are putting in what they do.

“Not impressed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

Based on reviews we booked at Kitchen Lovers at Playa de las Canteras. We were pretty disappointed in most aspects of our culinary experience. All tastes are different but we didn't think the restaurant was well decorated. Very light, low quality materials, we didn't like to sit there. Maybe not important but the food wasn't a lot better. The meal wasn't bad but it was something every amateur chef can prepare in his or her kitchen. As an example, i had the scallops, wrapped in bacon and grilled. The scallops were small, overcooked and very amateurishly prepared. Service was average, wine selection poor. Table clothing is plasticky, and when people leave, it doesn't get replaced but just cleaned a bit. Not impressed, not recommended.

“Our expectations and the quality of the food were not at the same level!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013

Nothing else to say because it is not rocket science to make proper tenderloin steak and I do not remember when I had so low quality steak...

“Don't miss this restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2013

We selected this on the basis of TA reviews. We were not disappointed and had absolutely fantastic lunches and dinners there. Yes plural. During our one week stay we dined there 4 times and it just got better and better as we met and got to know the staff. They know their food and how to prepare it. More general European than the typical Spanish or tapas available at other beach restaurants and infinitely better. If you are on Canteras beach don't miss this opportunity or better yet make it a target destination. A beautiful restaurant above the beach which also offers beach-side service.
