Restaurants for Group Dining in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria
Next, we go with the list of restaurants and venues for events in the capital of Las Palmas. We will classify them by area to make it easier for you. Pay attention because some of them already have a Christmas menu for 2023 in the capital of Las Palmas. We will update the information as the restaurants release their special menus.
1. La Marinera €€€, Group Dining Restaurants in Las Canteras
Located in an ideal setting in the La Puntilla area of Las Canteras beach, La Marinera offers not only a panoramic view of the sea but also mouth-watering fresh fish and seafood dishes. It’s perfect for large group restaurants in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, with the option to eat on their covered terrace or in the indoor dining room. They can accommodate large groups, as they can serve over 400 guests as they tell us. They don’t have their Christmas menus yet, but on their website, you can see the various group menus from €39.80 per person.
2. Casa Carmelo €€€, Restaurants for Group Dining in Las Canteras
Another option in the La Puntilla area, also right on the Las Canteras promenade, is Casa Carmelo. In this case, they are specialized in meats, although they also offer some fish dishes. In fact, it’s one of our favorite steak house in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. If you’re looking for a group restaurant in Gran Canaria with sea views, take note of this one as well.
3. El Biberón €€, Group Dining Restaurants in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (Las Canteras)
Known for its cosy atmosphere with high ceilings and full of pots and pans, El Biberón is the ideal restaurant for groups in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria if you’re on a tighter budget. They have an indoor dining room with capacity for 70 people and a terrace for up to 30 people. The menu for groups of 8 people or more is €27.50 per person and includes six dishes to choose from their menu (to share between four) and three drinks per person (water, soft drink, beer or wine), this option does not include dessert. The price with dessert is 30€ per person.
4. El Dorado €€, group restaurants in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria
For those on tighter budgets and wanting a Canarian touch, we recommend El Dorado. It’s also located in Las Canteras, but in this case, in the La Cícer area. We’d only recommend considering this option if you’re planning to dine during the day and on the terrace (max 20 people), as their indoor dining space isn’t very large. Similarly, during the cooler evening months in Las Canteras, it can get a bit chilly. They don’t offer group/Christmas menus; everything is à la carte. However, their portions are quite generous, perfect for sharing dishes like potatoes with mojo sauce, octopus ropa vieja, Russian salad, fish tacos, squid, and more.
5. Tratoria Calabré €€€, Group Restaurants in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (port)
If you’re in the mood for an Italian restaurant in Las Palmas for that meal with friends and/or family, consider Tratoria Calabré, just a short walk from the bustling Mesa y López area. Their indoor dining room is huge, but even so, they only welcome groups of up to a maximum of 10 people to ensure that their service remains optimal. They have a fixed group menu priced at €45 per person, including a tasting menu of starters, pizza, pasta, and dessert. Plus, they offer unlimited beer.
6. Shintori €, Guanarteme and Triana areas
Another recommendation from the @welovegrancanaria community is this Asian eatery specialising in a la carte buffet-style Chinese and Japanese dishes. At their Guanarteme location, the unlimited a la carte buffet (where you can select dishes from the menu as many times as you want) is priced at €17.50 per person, excluding drinks. In the Triana area, it’s €15.90. I’m not particularly fond of these formats, but Jorge often visits with friends for the sheer variety and predictability of the cost.
7. Burger joint Qué Guay €, Port-Canteras area
For a more casual alternative for the usual meal with friends, there’s the Hamburguesería Qué Guay. Spanning two floors, it’s ideal for hosting groups and events. They boast over 30 different burgers on their menu, notably their fish and surf ‘n’ turf burgers. They have a group menu (minimum 10 people) from €14.90 per person with a starter to share between two people, a burger of your choice (black angus, vegan, octopus or fried chicken) and a drink (water, soft drink or beer). If you’re considering other burger joints in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, check out our post.
8. Tao & Catering €€€, Special Occasion restaurants in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria
In case you didn’t know, Tao terrace offers a catering service that could prepare a cocktail style meal or dinner (finger food) if you wish, whether on its iconic terrace by Romano Park, the Tendedero de Catalina, or the Manso rooftop. And then, let the party continue! The beauty of these venues is they’re ideal for large groups and/or standing meals where you’d like all attendees to mingle. Here’s their Christmas cocktail for 2023. The price is €35 per person, with a minimum duration of 2 hours and for at least 30 attendees.
9. Sarang €€, Restaurants for Group Dining in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria
Korean-Japanese fusion restaurant Sarang is one of our favourites in the capital and they also have a menu for companies and groups this Christmas. The price per person is €38 and includes an open bar during the meal with beer, wine, soft drinks and water. If you and your loved ones like Asian cuisine, this is definitely a great option and with better quality than the Shintori we mentioned earlier. Be aware, however, that the dining room is small and can only accommodate small groups from 6 to 14 people.
10. El Embarcadero €€€€, Group Dining Restaurants in Las Palmas, Marina Area
Another more elegant option to consider for your next company dinner in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria by the sea is El Embarcadero. They have both indoor and outdoor dining in an environment surrounded by yachts in the Las Palmas de Gran Canaria marina. Additionally, a plus is its proximity to nightlife areas such as Tao or the Sotavento terrace, should you wish to continue the festivities.
We provide you with a list of further special occasion restaurants in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, in case none of the above appeal to you.
- Triana Area: Gallo Negro (Mexican) and Alboroto. Yes, this Las Palmas nightclub also offers event catering.
- Puerto-Canteras and Marina Area: As you may know, the restaurants of the Allende Group are quite spacious and are located in various parts of the capital: Triana, port, and marina. On the other hand, another classic is El Churrasco, which might be over budget for many. Finally, the Casablanca terrace of the O’ Sole Mio La Casa Roja restaurant owned by our friend Carmelo Catalioto offers unique views of Las Canteras Beach, and dining on its rooftop can be an excellent choice.

In the heart of Guayadeque ravine, you’ll find several restaurants housed in caves if you wish to experience something you won’t find anywhere else. There are various eateries in the area like Vega, El Centro, Tagoror, all offering dishes and Canarian food. The downside is the drive to get here. It’s better to go during the day than at night, and remember, don’t drink and drive. Similarly, being caves, these are restaurants suitable for groups of 15-20 people.
16. La Arrocería €€€, by Perchel Beach Club
The sea, the breeze, and a good rice dish. That’s The Rice House at Perchel Beach Club.
