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...

My wife and I have been regulars at La Aquarela for years now, and always enjoy our selves in their very friendly and cozy atmosphere. We normally go for a set menu, which always offers modern dishes, with perfect presentation and great taste experiences. Wine pairings never disappoint. The reason I don't give a 5 is price. During the 4-5... More

This is the perfect restaurant to celebrate a 50th birthday on! The service is super good. The food fantastic good. Even if it is the higher price point, it's worth every €. This resturant must be visited if you enjoy good food!

I went there last week with my husband and two sons. I think I died and went to heaven! From start to finish the meal was exceptional! The service also was second to none. It is not cheap but it is worth every penny and I would not be surprised if they soon have a Michelin star! I had scallops... More

Feel the other reviews reflect their essence of this restaurant, food was amazing as was the service. Not cheap but felt it was worth what we paid. Would say be aware if you eat at lunch time which we did you are right by the pool of the complex this restaurant is on, very noisy with kids playing is all... 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.
