Great position right on the beach. Clean and well turned out establishment. Good service and we were well satisfied with our paella. Drinks a little pricey but not unexpected given the type of place and location.

We often visit the beach front part on our way home from the beach for a few tapas and a nice Lanzarote white wine. Can recommend the tuna tatar and the tiny octopus

Amazing restaurant, immaculately clean and food is amazing - so good we ate there 3 nights on a row ! However it could be so much better if staff were more switched on and attentive - you have to wait a while for everything , it's not that they are short staff they are just not on the ball ,...

4th time in Gran Canarian and always looking forward spending times having a sangria and lovely food there. All the staff are helpful and friendly and the food is great quality. You are right on the each and is a great place for afternoon drink and snack and early dinner looking at the suset

Price was way too high compared to quality of the food. Everything was not good at all. Not even the service. Plus that we needed to wait for our change (more than 10 euros) for quite some time...

Crowded after 15, and many goes here to see and be seen. Very friendly staff, and the food is good enough... They also provide a restaurant as well as a beach club... If you miss Wiki-beach this is the place..

Nice food but very expensive - dobbelt price compared to many ok places similar. 13,5 euros for a salad! Very nice view and a nice place to sit and relax.

We go to the el senator each time we are in Gran Canaria (Faro) and always enjoy the food. The 'sizzling prawns' were stunning as a starter. The Wok Thai (chicken and prawn) was seriously tasty from start to end. Service was attentive and friendly. With a nice bottle of Rose white the bill was €98 (without desserts). Nice food... More

This bar is in a fabulous location overlooking the beach and sea, we had an amazing afternoon enjoying the sunshine and having a drink. Yes the bar is busy but the staff are very friendly and work very hard and lets face it why would you be impatient when you are sat in a beautiful place on holiday and there... More
