Last time we visited Aquarella I brought my kids at 7 and 8 years. They were welcomed really well and the staff accommodated the few changes needed for them. The food is fantastic and Gregory is a fantastic host.

After several visits to this restaurant, the impression remains the same - exellent. Despite the prices, food and service are next to none and well worth the spending.

This is certainly different to the general offering around Puerto Rico. This is an expensive restaurant given the location and although the table by the pool is nice, it's also not all that different to many other hotel restaurants. That being said if you don't mind paying over €50 a head for good wine, excellent food and attentive service (although... More

We booked our stay the days in advance via their web form online. Confirmation came back the next day. Make sure to come at opening time if you plan on having one of the set menus. Food was excellent and service was Michelin star quality. Dishes included many interesting takes on traditional Spanish and international ones.

We came here last minute and am so glad we did. The restaurant is in a beautiful setting and the service was excellent! The food was delicious and we enjoyed it very much! It is pricey but the food and service were worthy of this!

Fantastic service, superb food! Okay it's pricey but when you take into account the quality of the food and the amount of work that they have put in its worth it when compared to other restaurants. We went for our anniversary and we weren't disappointed! We had the 8 course taster menu with matching wines. Well worth it for a... More

Have eaten here and tried the tasting menu. Its 7 courses, sounds huge but is actually not as much as it sounds, each dish is relatively small but more than enough to get the full taste. Some very unusual combinations of food but they all taste wonderful, very nice setting, very good service. Is on the expensive side but well... More

At an amazing setting we all enjoyed the set taster menu. Each course complimented the other and all courses were fully enjoyed by all. The lobster Bisque was amazing!! Service at the restaurant was first class Michelin style service and the waiters were attentive but not intrusive. Some friends asked if they could change a dish on the taster menu... More

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.
