After being recommended this tapas restaurant by numerous locals we decided to give it a go. After a short cab drive we arrived at what looked to be a very respectable establishment. To be honest the service was good as the waiter seated us upon arrival recommended a wine and recommended how many tapas to order, etc. However the food... More

After being recommended this restaurant by our hotel, we decided to give Los Jose's a go, as we couldn't come all this way and not sample some tapas! The restaurant is very stylish and modern and the staff were very helpful in helping us choose some dishes, as me and my friend aren't big fish eaters. The food was very... More

While holidaying in Maspalomas we wanted a taste of the real island away from the hotel food. On hiring a taxi I asked the drive for the best tapas in town. Well his recommendation did not disappoint. On arrival the restaurant was welcoming, very stylish in a modern way but simple and tasteful. The waiters are very helpful speaking good... More

It says temporarily closed but we visited this restaurant in the final week of August. It has been totally renovated since last year so I assume they have not updated the status as it was definately open last week! We visited La Tapita last year and returned again on our latest holiday. The restaurant has been totally renovated into a... More

Our hotel offered this as a recommendation for tapas, and based on the abundance of Spanish from nearby tables it's a popular option with locals as well as tourists - always a good sign! Fortunately we were able to get a table immediately as there's not much seating available. As we've found elsewhere on Gran Canaria, the portions are generous... More

By the reviews I had read was prepared for a wait going at 21.00. We were given a choice of indoors our out and chose out for smoking. The waiters English was excellent and his advice on how much to order was so helpful. We were not rushed by any stretch of the imagination which made it a night out... More

We went to la tapita because of our host recommendation. It is a well-decorated restaurant. The servant suggested an appetizer of fried Canarian cheese with orange and berries marmalade which was delicious. The marmalade goes very well with the cheese. Then I ordered a grilled baby squid and a rolled pancake with chicken and vegetable for my bf. The only... More

Very good selection of tasty tapas in a great local and not too touristy destination. Feels like a very genuine, authentic local restaurant and well worth a visit. Popular with locals so be prepared for a short wait for a table but it's worth it. Have the squid as a main - melt in the mouth and knockout!
