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

We decided last minute to go to La Aquarela for dinner and although there were no tables outside, they were kind enough to set us a table inside. The food was so delicious. My partner had a "salpicon" of red prawn that was absolutely to die for. The wine list was incredible, we had a bottle of Pago de Santa... More

Be aware, you will pay a lot more than what you see advertised on menu. Good beef, but it's served with a small spoonful of potatoes for €29 and €18 for a children's meal. The breads which you are told is complementary is €3.90 pp and they charge for children even a 2 year old who didn't eat! The house... More

Lovely meal started with a Parmigiano cheese finger canapé followed by a treat of three Amuse Bouche of squid; beef and foie gras macaroons. This was followed by Duck Liver for me and scallops for my wife followed by a Chateaubriand; all of which were beautifully presented and cooked. This left us, unusually, looking forward to dessert which were a... More

The food is okay. Athmospere is old style with a older people eating there. The prices are fare off - too expensive and we can't recommend it. I can't understand the high rating of this restaurant.

Probably one of the best restaurants in the neighbourhood of las palomas. You really have to look for it given its location at the interior of an apartment residency. With this location you can only survive on quality and reputation. We had a five course menu at very high standard. This combined with a spectacular view on the bay made... More

Let's get this in perspective the restaurant is very expensive , but as they say you get what you pay for, the service was five star they were extremely accommodating with our boys who are fussy eaters and just wanted steak and chicken with chips and no thrills, this was no problem at all they were a bit miffed when...

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.
