“Beach Front Views and Good Solid Food range”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2012

Good to Very Good offering from this beach-side restaurant. Pizza's, grilled fish and meats and pasta dishes. Not too expensive and very high quality, friendly service from young staff. We ate once, returned for a drink at the end of our beach afternoons. Daytime drinks can be expensive but you are right on the side of the beach.

“El Caldero revisited”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2012

An Easter holiday at Gran Canaria has been finished with a great dinner at this nice restaurant which is usually crowded . We had a quick lunch earlier in the previous week
I made sure to reserve for the friday late lunch/approx 1500 hrs and found ourselves as the only tourist among spanish families and were pleasantly greeted as old aquaintances.
Again without any exuberation the meal was excellent.
The tropical salad followed by my 1,5 paella with lobster and my wifes calf-meat dish
could not be improved.
I have now booked already a table for 0ctober 20,2012 and the 27th of october.

“Pleasant culinary surprise between the tourist-traps.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2012

On the last day of a 10 days trip to gran canaria we could only return in the evening about 2130 hrs - as the food on the airport is really terrible we decided to have a late lunch and went from arquinequin to Mogan to this nicely located beachbouleverd restaurant.
From ealier visits we knew having to reserve as this place is frequently visited by
the locals and other spanish So approx 1500 hrs we got a nice table and we decided
to start with a very taste tropical salad as a starter,
my wife selected a veal-menu a la el caldero and I haggled the owner in supplying me
with a great castillian paella - normally for two but I settled happily on paying 1,5.
My wife really highly appreciated her selected choice while I indulged on a great
paella, actually a 2 persons paella.I managed to leave only a wee bit to the surprise
of the owner - this lunch was accompagnied with a great dry white spanish vino
and finished with 2 espresso coffee.
To be honest I did not eat anything untill the next day lunch.
We will certainly come back here.
