It all started so well! Ordered a nice bottle of Cava in a beautiful spot looking out over the beach to the rolling sea. Then we asked for a menu and to be moved to the dining area - this was undertaken with no grace or politeness . From then on the service was virtually nonexistent. The waiter brought me... More

Wonderful location right on the beach looks very nice but the service was slow and food was just ok noting to rage about and was quiet expensive for what we had would not recommend this place

Had lunch at El Senador, there was loads of staff and not a lot of customers. But everything seemed to go in slow motion, no one was checking what you wanted to order or if everything was to our liking. You had to literally ask for everything and the food and prices was way above what you could expect at... More

We saw an advert for this restaurant as we walked towards the lighthouse (El Faro). It is the first restaurant past the lighthouse where the promenade ends and deckboards begin. For an impulse choice of restaurant we were not disappointed! We ate as a family of 3, 2 adults and our 13 year old son. We all opted for a... More

We've visited El Senador several times both for lunch and dinner and have had both seafood (lobster), paella and pizza (Pescador and vegetarian). The food is very good and the pizza is OK value for money. The best thing about this restaurant is the fine sea view.

In Gran Canaria for our wedding anniversary....found ourselves in Maspalomas for the day & had a late leisurely lunch here...after some freshly steamed clams, we shared a whole baked monkfish together with a bottle of local white wine....the place is redolent of a country club with different seating areas & styles....not the cheapest but we were made to feel special...

Modernish but very expensive, if your on a low budget, you should only drink here. But if you would eat here, it's very well served, and also very tast. The plus thing about this restaurant is, that it's right at the beach, so you have a nice view at the beach and the sea.
