We've been coming to Capaco since we first came to GC. It's an institution and the food is consistently good. The grilled asparagus was fabulous as was the fish in green sauce - a fried fillet of yummy white fish with some green mojo on top. A real international mix of diners.

We visited Tapas Capaco as our hotel's restaurant was so poor and the bar had good reviews here on Trip Advisor. We booked on the day and arrived a little earlier than we had booked for, so we could have a drink. The gentleman who welcomed us seemed ok, if not a little brusque, and we settled on their Cava...

We have visited Tapas Capaco several times over the years and we have always been very pleased with their food. It is very tasty and the service is first class.

It took quite a while before we could order. They weren't very service minded. The asparagus was delicious, the rest wasn't much to cheer for.

Found this little tapas bar on tripadvisor while we were staying in Gran Canaria. So glad we decided to give it a go, It was so good! The owner was very welcoming and even advised us on there most popular dishes. Each dish we had was delicious, full of flavour. On our second night we tried a couple of different... More

This place is a relatively rare find in the resort, it is a genuine canarian tapas experience and a lively bar post dinner time. First of all, the food is fantastic, far better than any of the places I have been to in any of the Canaries. Its a while since I have been but special shout out to the... More

As I sit here looking at the negative reviews I wonder if I'm in the same restaurant. Since online reviewing has taken off we rely on other people's opinions rather than try ourselves. This restaurant serves amazing tapas. Not the watered down version we get in other countries. A real canaries tapas meal. The food was stunning each dish arriving... More

This little gem was recommended to us by one of the Maspalomas locals as the best tapas bar in the area. While we've not been to all tapas bars in Maspalomas, this one is certainly outstanding. The food was delicious, waiters very friendly and attentive, the atmosphere was buzzing, and to top it off the place was full of locals... More
