We walked by not impressed by the first look. But after a beautiful fresh and tasteful paella we came back the next day and left happy again. Pass the fancy tourist traps at the boulevard, ignore the first impression and enjoy the honest kitchen!

We visited here with our family - my parents in particular visited frequently during their three week stay on the island. Tucked away down the back walkway to the beach. Great pit stop for a beer and a bite to eat after been on the beach. The beer is only 2 euros and the food is great if you want... More

Not sure who those reviewers who give this place 4-5 stars. I don't normally review restaurants at all, but this place was really disappointing. Pizza was made with tinned mushrooms and tuna and frozen shrimps. Grilled squid was OK, but nothing more Fried sardines - ok, but nothing inspiring Dirty cutlery and shaky tables ...but, most of all I got... More

Ok so there are many other similar restaurants in the area but we chose this one for its friendly staff and the very good tapas, plus the wines were not very expensive.

This should be our last evening so we followed recommendation which was a big mistake. Unfriedly to the uppermost frozen food from the worst quality ever seen. This restaurant is just existing to earn money with no existing value.

The menu at Don Quijote is the same as the menu at about 50 other restaurants close to the beach in Maspalomas. Good points: The menu is varied enough that you'll be able to feed everyone in even a large party with different tastes. It's not very expensive. Not so good: These beach-side restaurants are not the right place to... More

The food here was OK, it was formulaic and had nothing spectacular that other beach- side restaurants had. The service is average and the prices are medium. When our bill arrived it had 3 items on it that we hadn't ordered, so do check your bill when it arrives.

All the restaurants that run along this strip behind the beach look the same with similar menus. Basic food like shish kebabs with chips and salad etc. This one is by far the best. Look for the staff in orange tops! They are really friendly...it's one of those places that entices you in with offers of free drinks and ice... More

I came here for lunch and dinner everyday for my week stay in Gran Canaria. ALL of the staff here are welcoming, helpful & lovely people and the food is lovely! Recommended their chicken, cheese & salad baguettes for lunch. Definitely will be coming back here when I come back to gran canaria.
