We currently have five Michelin Star restaurants in Gran Canaria. The award winners are the restaurants La Aquarela, Los Guayres, Poemas by Hermanos Padrón, Tabaiba and for 2024 the restaurant Bevir will be added to the list. Both Los Guayres and La Aquarela have been awarded one star since 2019. On the other hand, in December 2021 the Poemas restaurant got its first star and in 2022 the Tabaiba. All of these restaurants renewed their awards in November 2022 and 2023. In addition, as we said, in the 2023 gala the restaurant Bevir was incorporated for the first time. Congratulations to all the restaurants with a Michelin Star in Gran Canaria!
Below, we are going to give you all the details of these gastronomic temples in case you would like to visit any of them. Here we go!
Michelin Star restaurants in Gran Canaria 2024
As we anticipated, since 2019 the restaurants La Aquarela, nearby Anfi Beach and, on the other hand, Los Guayres, in Puerto de Mogán, have been renewing their corresponding Michelin star in recent years. And, for the first time, there will be five Michelin-starred restaurants in Gran Canaria at the same time in 2024.
As we see it, if you only had the option of choosing a restaurant for your budget or limited time on the island, we liked La Aquarela much more than the other two. The reasons are three: inclusion of Canarian product in practically all the dishes on its menu, setting and service. In any case, the three restaurants are highly recommended and we congratulate them on this great achievement.
✔ La Aquarela, Michelin Star restaurants in Gran Canaria south
We can say that La Aquarela is one of the best restaurants in Gran Canaria. It has it all: products from Gran Canaria and other islands, an explosion of flavors, presentation, service of 10 and an unbeatable environment. In its kitchen is the Canarian chef Germán Ortega, who is clear that the local product must be the protagonist. The owner, Gregorio Fernández, is also in charge of La Aquarela every day. In addition, you can see how there is a great team that loves what they do and that shows in the result.
At La Aquarela restaurant they offer two tasting menus that you can choose from. On the one hand, the vegetarian Tierra Menu for €120 (without pairing). And, on the other hand, the Experience Menu that includes meat, seafood and fish for €140, without drinks. The pairing is optional in both menus and has a cost of €98 per person. In any case, they have an extensive wine and sparkling wine list. We are sure that its brilliant maitre sommelier Nikola Ivicic will be able to advise you on your choice.
Finally, keep in mind that during the summer you can enjoy a dreamy sunset as in the photo that we show you at the beginning. Try to book for the aperitif at 8:00 pm so you don’t miss it.
✔ Los Guayres restaurant, Michelin Star restaurant in Mogán
Regarding Los Guayres restaurant, it is located within the Cordial Mogán Playa hotel in the Puerto de Mogán area. Although the site is beautiful, it is difficult to compare with the surroundings of La Aquarela. The genre that they include in their menus is spectacular (oysters, red prawns, foie, suckling pig …), but we notice less prominence of local product. This Michelin star restaurant in Gran Canaria offers three tasting menus: the Tasting Menu for €120, the Classic Tasting Menu for €130 and the Great Tasting Menu for €140. As you go up in price, the number of dishes to taste increases. Pairings are not included and cost €55, €62 and €70, respectively.
In the kitchen of the Los Guayres restaurant we will meet Alexis Álvarez, another chef from Gran Canaria who receives this award. Congratulations and keep it up!
✔ Poemas by Hermanos Padrón, Michelin Star restaurant in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria
In December 2021, the Poemas by Hermanos Padrón restaurant received a Michelin star for the first time. The Poemas restaurant is located inside the Santa Catalina hotel, a Royal Hideaway hotel of the Barceló chain. It is the oldest hotel in the Canary Islands that remains open today. Both the hotel and the Poemas restaurant are located in a unique setting in the capital. By the way, if you are in the city for the first time, you have all our tips on things to see in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria in the blog.
The Hermanos Padrón have been renewing a Michelin Star for several years at their restaurant El Rincón de Juan Carlos on the island of Tenerife. In the case of Poemas, they have delegated their gastronomic project on the island of Gran Canaria to the Canarian chef Iciar Pérez, being the chef of this establishment.
The curious thing about this restaurant and what differentiates it from the other two Michelin Star restaurants in Gran Canaria, is that you will be able to eat both à la carte and enjoy its tasting menu. If you eat à la carte, there are not many options and the price per person will not fall below €70. On the other hand, they have two tasting menus, one of classics for €90 per person and also the Poemas tasting menu for €140 per person. Neither includes drinks.
✔ Tabaiba, Michelin Star restaurant in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria
Since 2023 the Tabaiba Restaurant with chef Abraham Ortega at the helm has also been awarded a Michelin star. There are two options on the menu. The Tabaiba Menu with 8 passes for €100 without drinks and the Experience Menu with 11 passes for €130, which also does not include food and wine pairing.
✔ Bevir, Michelin Star restaurant in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria 2024
As we mentioned, in 2024 the capital’s restaurant Bevir joins the Guide to Michelin-starred restaurants in Gran Canaria. In their kitchens is the chef José Luis Espino. So far they haven’t changed their menus since they got a star and you can try their tasting menu Fortunata from 85€ and the menu Jacinta from 105€. We have yet to try it, as soon as we go, we’ll tell you about our experience here.
Finally, it is worth noting that there is also a restaurant in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria with a Green Star. And what does this mean? A Michelin Green Star restaurant is identified by its exceptional commitment to sustainable practices and the conscious management of resources. This award is given to those establishments that prioritise sustainability in their operation and management. This is the case of Borja Marrero’s restaurant Muxgo. They have a tasting menu from €75 and are located inside the Santa Catalina hotel too.
We would like to take this opportunity to recommend more restaurants in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, as well as our favourite restaurants in Gran Canaria if you want to discover the rich gastronomy of the island.
