La Caldera restaurant is one of our favorites in terms of local food in Gran Canaria. Their dishes are delicious and, besides, it’s cheap. It stands out for its specialty in grilled meats and, of course, for its pork ribs boiled with corn (maize cob). In few places on the island you can try this typical Canarian dish. Anyway, it is not their only delicatessen, we love their mushroom and spinach croquettes. Not to mention their watercress stew!
La Caldera restaurant, Canarian food in a local environment
The restaurant La Caldera is in the municipality of Firgas, in a small neighborhood of the same name. It is just 5 minutes by car from the urban centers of Firgas and Arucas. So what if you plan to visit one of these two towns, it is a great option to eat!
As we said at the beginning, in La Caldera you can not miss the boiled pork ribs that comes with corn and potatoes. Also, they cook delicious pork ribs, as well as other very tasty grilled meats. In the same way, both their mushroom and spinach croquettes are unique.
If you also like the spoon dishes, you have to try the watercress stew. A very typical dish in the Canary Islands. Of course, accompany it with a cheese tapa on the island.
Price and menu
We show you the menu with the variety and its prices. Sorry but we only have it in Spanish. We last paid € 11 per person, so we could catalog it in the cheap restaurants of Gran Canaria.
Contact and opening hours
The restaurant La Caldera does not accept reservations. Also, on weekends it is a horror to try to get a table. You have to arrive before 1:15 pm if you do not want to wait a long line. The place is large and just next door is Casa Pepe restaurant, with a similar gastronomic offer. Still, it is also always full. In any case, we prefer La Caldera. You can make orders to take away, but you must do it with some advance. Call before 928616140 and indicate the time you want to pick it up. If you can choose to visit the Restaurant La Caldera during the week, much better. To the queues it is added that the place is quite noisy when it is full. Therefore, preferably visit it from Monday to Friday. They open every day from 12:00 to 4:00 pm and from 7:00 to 11:00 pm.
